aagreed. PWC is the best of the FDD among big 4. Kpmg is the best of deals advisory among big 4. Ey is the best of TAS among big 4. Hope this help$!

It definitely sucks they did this and make us request approval..way better when we accrued and had a set amount. There are so many studies that show employees with “flexible” PTO use less than those with a set amount.

No one who matters (the person buying the work) cares. It’s all the same to them. This whole notion of prestige in PA is ridiculous and I’m sure only our young generation cares about it.

Agreed. Maybe within the bubble of PA you can say FDD is prestigious. Ok but what is that good for? Like maybe you can act cool in front of your auditor friends or something, idk, but no one outside of PA cares. You work at big4, they’re going to call you the accountants, we do diligence and compliance work. In the grand scheme of things we aren’t considered prestigious at all, it’s just a job that pays the bills. Trying to knit pick jobs because of prestige when it is all the same, is a waste of time in my opinion.

You’re pulling at strings at this point. They’re all the same, they all do the same thing. I don’t think any or more or less “prestigious” than the others.

Pwc and Deloitte definitely rank highest. At present moment, KPMG probably last.

How does A&M fit into the rankings? Are they similar to Big4 or mid-tier firms?

A&M is right under the big 4 in terms of prestige (all of their TAG group is expected Big4)

It’s all really similar based on exits I’ve seen
