A few years ago the salaries were way too high. Nowadays I feel it's basically accurate

https://www.big4transparency.com/ would be far more accurate than that. For this year at least, since it was launched a few months ago. You can actually see the actual $$$ and level reported by real people not some average or any other metric that can be manipulated by anyone compiling the data and how questions were asked. Not to mention they may have incentive to overreport salaries to entice people to seek new jobs, which is the service they provide.

For my city, I thought the tax salaries were pretty accurate.

Entry level auditor / assurance services in New York City - $41k at 25th percentile to $58k at the 75th percentile. That seems way too low. I question their sample sizes and who comprises the data. Did they pull from like government payroll data or something where they get more in benefits?

like

As I’m looking into this some more, it appears that the % increase between the range I quoted yesterday and today’s range is the exact same % as the geographic differential. ($58k - $41k)/($41k) = 40.5% My guess is they were displaying national data yesterday at every location. I bet they don’t really have location specific data

One day people will understand the word "Median". Just because the figure shown is above or below your salary doesn't automatically mean "LOL so inaccurate 🤪"

Too low. Senior associate in audit in San Francisco is listed at $78k for 75th percentile lol

Where the heck does deal advisory fall under? I’m an incoming A1 and would like to know what others are getting

You should expect 80k in MCOL as first year

I never think it is right. Especially when you factor in location.

Low. I wonder where they get the data.

Bay Area audit seems to be 5-10k higher than actual, in my experience.

Mid tiers firms in Bay Area a lot more than big 4

Anyone think 151K (25th) in Boston for senior manager is high?

For audit?

It says that audit senior associates in NYC are marking $96k (50th percentile). Is that true?

Idk NYC salaries enough. You’re probably right, but I was just pointing to the fact that you said “time to have a conversation with my PML” as if we aren’t about to hear about raises. Take your current salary and add 17% and that’s what you should expect

For the Dallas 25 percentile this seems low to me. Glassdoor has a salary guide that seems much more accurate.

I owe so much to this bowl! I'm finally putting in my 2 weeks notice and leaving for a whopping over 70% increase in TC!! Current TC: $87k (most likely would increase to $92k if I get bonus and promo next month) Offer TC: ~$150k+ ($110k base, $20k+ bonus, $20k rsu) YOE: 1 year Trust me, don't give up. I fell into severe depression ever since I started my consulting analyst career out of college, saw 5 therapists, gained 10 lbs, and broke relationships. I'd love to give back to you all here!
