It depends what firm you are with, in my experience boutique (A&M etc) > b4 > regional firms (BDO). And CFE adds no value, money wise.

Depends on the firm and also whether you’re a senior or still at entry level. Big 4 probably $60-$80K for an associate and $80-$110K for a senior, with EY being at the low end and PwC on the high end of that scale. You can probably get 25% more at a consulting firm. Places like A&M will probably have lower bases but can pay you 40% more in total comp after bonus

Sounds like a big difference in wages between US and Canada! Thankful for tools like this for increasing transparency- I didn’t think 91k was bad until I’d moved to industry and experienced a bump to $140k. I’d initially put it down to “b4 firms pay poorly” but perhaps I was being underpaid at an individual level too

I'm a twenty year B4 vet on the administrative side with the "golden handcuffs" of a relatively decent salary and benefits locked on. Yet I am ready to GTFO with all the changes in the past year, and still have more than a few years until retirement. Since jobs anywhere else will require a salary cut, how much of a cut would you be willing to accept? 10%, 20%, 50%? Just curious to see what others think.

Seeking advice. Came into consulting late, after 8 YOE in federal gov. Hired on as a consultant despite exp, and spent last ~4 years in investigations/risk, first at fairly well-known mid-tier firm then a boutique. Twice promoted in that time, so now senior associate/director-level making ~150k TC. Others at my level are abt the same age, so I am almost ‘caught up’. Problem is I dislike the work, feel v burnt out & underpaid. Has anyone successfully exited this space? If so, how and to where? 🙏🏽
