I was offered fdd manager role in nyc at a Big4, with no direct fdd experience and currently an SC. They originally offered $140k and $15k signing. I countered to $150k and they told me $145k was the absolute max they could do. Then a few days later told them I was offered $160k at a different Big4 (when I wasn’t) and convinced them to bump to $165k and $15k signing. Moral of the story, don’t fall for their bs if they say that $145-$150k is max they could do. These firms are so desperate right now and have so much cash on hand, because revenue was incredible during covid and expenses were probably cut in half from no travel or meals

That’s definitely not the norm. I would simply start the conversation asking if a signing bonus can be included as part of the total compensation package and see what they say.

Got 10k as a senior 1

I've been working for a regional public accounting firm since last Summer. It's a small office and I don't really fit in. The accounting software(s) is also ancient and slow here(circa 2003). I quickly applied for a position at a Big 4 and surprisingly was quickly offered a job. The training here has been haphazard and even managers barely know how to use the software. My main concern is the awkwardness from leaving after such a short time but the commute is an hour shorter to the big 4 firm.
