These answers don’t consider the current market. I’d leave now. Grab 20% raise and then boomerang back. Public Accounting is going through a pain period for the next 2 years so don’t expect any rises during this time period.

10% salary, 5% if they pay OT, and have generally better work life balance Long term career prospects should be considered heavily, but if you’re not happy and don’t see yourself becoming happy, might not be for you

No, I left PwC to a smaller public accounting firm. If PwC / Big Four did all of the above, there would be way less turnover lol

I left after 6 months with 15% raise and around 40 hours per week schedule. More importantly, nobody send me emails after 5PM.

As a manager, when I told my partner that I had interviewed, he looked up the company and advised not to leave for what was the equivalent to a 40% increase. I am very glad that I listened to him.

I ended up staying a lot longer and have learned much more - technical and interpersonal skills - in my manager+ years. I have no regrets about sticking out the additional years because I have a lot more options now than if I had gone into industry earlier.

Min 15%

Only leave if it’s for a lot more money in a job where pay will also scale at least as quickly as big four pay does

I’m an incoming AC1 at Bain and I have spent the summer studying a bit for the GMAT since we had a stipend. I took it with no practice and received a 640.

I graduated undergrad from UofM BBA Magna Cum Laude, have interned in Big 4 consulting, IB, and VC, and I’m an Asian-American. What should I do?
