Dude if you left and wished you didn't, go back - try a different big 4.... No matter what people say there is a huge difference, it's not just pay but everything else - payroll process, expense process, PTO, training, attitude, culture, technology, etc

I recently interviewed at PwC US (Tier 1) and got an offer for a $92K base salary + a $15K signing bonus. I'm an international hire with a bachelor's and an ACA & ACCA certification both to be completed in the next 2-3 months + 4 YOE. I accepted the offer but later it felt like I got a low offer so I asked the recruiter to reconsider my base salary, if possible. So the recruiter agreed and will be coming back this week with a revised offer. I'm not sure how much I can negotiate after accepting.

How do you tell Senior the work load is disproportionate amongst staff? Everyone agrees I have the most work and consistently work until 2am on tasks whereas everyone logs off at 7. I record my time by tasks and I’ve completed tasks more efficiently so I’m not slow... the tasks are 3x more. I was told this is a compliment because I’m trusted with Senior work. I don’t find this amusing or a compliment, because my paycheck is not senior level. How do I address this?
