If looking for a pay day why not try A&M? Always hearing how good their comp is

We don’t work IB hours but I’d say we are more consistently busy than Big4 bc we’re juggling multiple projects. Would caveat A&M1’s point that even if you’re 100% utilized that’s not necessarily an easy 40 hour week. Budgets can be tight, M&A and data flow is unpredictable, and switching between deals and admin stuff obvi isn’t chargeable. 40 chargeable hours means you probably worked much more than that. Still…I rarely have 12am-2am type nights that I used to have routinely at B4. On the other hand, almost never have days with nothing to do

About $20k

I moved from B4 to industry accounting about 5 years ago. I currently work as a corporate accounting manager at a software company.

I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?

So I know layoffs suck. I’ve been laid off twice in 2 years (and I’m actually pretty good at my job.) But I just want to say, that each time my next gig has netted me a 20%+ salary increase.
