Thoughts on BDO consulting? Do they pay well compared to Big 4?

I used to work at BDO and loved it! They are much smaller than the big 4 so don’t have the same resources, but the culture is great and they are more entrepreneurial. The salary was comparable, maybe a bit lower, though the bonuses are much better.

So would it be smarter to make the move now as a first year staff since I’ll be considered Experienced Hire anyway?
