Major Tech Firm (not FAANG). 260K+40% annual bonus. No shares offered. Strategic customer engagement role. Not a huge amount of growth or clear path beyond. Good, fun team and culture. Probably a pretty good WLB

Big 4 “clear path to partnership” is the greatest bait and switch out there. Do tech for a few years and then talk to big 4 about direct admit

Agreed. Don’t believe it, OP

Tech > Big 4 anyday. No doubt, even for less money (like $50k less).

Do big 4 directors really only get 10% bonus?

No

Well what do you want for your future? WLB or to be partner? Only you know what meets your needs and aligns best to your goals. Whichever you choose, congrats!

Strategic customer engagement is not going to be as easy as it seems. But it will be much much better than Big 4. Also, in tech you can stay in the same role for a very long time so you won’t have to worry much about the next level

There can be a clear path, but it’s a frigging big gate on it and very few people get through. Running into the gate is not enjoyable.
