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

How do the pension schemes for partners/principals compare across the B4? At Deloitte, until a few years ago, it was 1% of high five per year up to 25 years. Now, I believe the partners have to contribute 50% of the 1% per year, so the benefit is more like .5% per year.
