What D1 said. We get paid significantly more. Perks are the same. Comp differences are visible in the base but are even higher when considering bonus %

We currently don’t have access to free gym but you can expense $20/day if you’re traveling for client. Firm also just announced a new program with gympass launching this summer for pwc employees. Hope this helps!

Agree with S1 and D1. I think we believe our partners can be more lenient on expenses they have to approve but my experience is they act the same

Thank you very much. :)
