In all honesty, I understand people are leaving Big 4 right now because they have decent exit ops or better WLB ops, but what about people working at small/boutique firms making $100-105k as a SC/M? Is it worth it to join a Big 4 if you can potentially get a 20-30% pay increase, i.e. is the increase in salary worth the headache and travel?Deloitte Accenture PwC EY

So would it be smarter to make the move now as a first year staff since I’ll be considered Experienced Hire anyway?

I’m a Senior 2 high performer in Tax and am happy with my current job/coworkers. But I know that if I never leave EY, I’ll be underpaid compared to outside hires. I don’t want to leave EY for another firm, because I don’t want to have to rebuild my reputation and network. The thought has crossed my mind to apply to another Big 4 firm and get an offer from them and bring it to EY to ask for a pay raise (essentially say “match it or I’ll leave”). Has anyone ever done this? What was the response?
