I’ve seen smaller firms do this. Not sure what RSM does but with bigger firms you would hope that would come across in your raise or bonus. How big is the account? 5-10% is typically what I’ve seen. Doesn’t hurt to ask whoever is working on the opportunity with you.

I would rather not wait around an entire year for a chance at getting paid out. I wonder why forma don’t just establish an incentive to encourage employees at all levels to bring some business in.

As an A2 I brought in a tax client at my old firm, was just a 1040 first year, then next year we got his investment holdings like bunch of partnerships and real estate holdings plus his trusts, next year got his family business he and his family passively ran, and he was the ceo of a portco ended up getting the whole structure and working with the PE fund - didn’t get a dime. There now is now 2 people who work full time year round servicing this client.

Damn.. the hell

Easy way to pump up comp if you’re outgoing. Smaller audits than fortune 500’s. I don’t know why firms wouldn’t pay. 90% of something is better than 100% of nothing.

BDO has a plan in the place in the workplace guide that you get a % of the fees for x months in the first x years. So BDO does yes, at any level.

In advisory you are expected to do that in order to get promoted, in audit it is not expected so you will get a nice pat on the back. Maybe a mention at townhall (oh wait that’s only for multimillion wins).

You will get something. I wouldn’t worry too much about it. If nothing else, you will look really good during reviews. Honestly, that more valuable in the long run as it will help with early promotion and a larger base increase in pay

Hi Team.. I am looking for a job opportunity in Hyderabad in PM/ PMO domain. I have 5.5 years of experience in Core Engineering consulting services in PMO & Portfolio Management.
