PWC SDC/AC or IBM which is good interms of learning, WLB,Hikes and other benifits? Got offers from both and package is also almost same,but ibm offered more joining bonus compared with PWC. Thanks in advance for your inputs


PwC vs EY essentially same everyone but PwC is offering slightly higher base and bonus potential. Would be the same equivalent practice (PPM) at each firm in DC.


2015 grad in a mid sized law firm. Considered a rising star. Rumors that equity partners will be breaking a class rule precedent to elevate me next year. Lately just not feeling happy. Overworked. Don’t get to see my kid ever. A client has reached out for the third time trying to hire me. Boss is extremely difficult. Googled a bunch on pros and cons of going in house. I am also not making big law salary so financials are less impacted than for the “usual” candidate. Advice?

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!


Hi Fishes, how does the performance bonus calculations work at ZS India for manager level? As in, if your CTC says its 20%, does one get full 20%(of course, depending on performance) or there are substantial cuts??


Hey fishes, Can we all share our salary since we joined EY and how much is our current salary (eg At age of 22,25,27,30 ect.) Add your service line as well 😉


Accepted an offer to join a small mom and pop firm (~50 ppl) there’s ex big 4 there, I’ll be running implementations as a Director. At a tier 2 firm now (going on 4 years) only a small pay bump but better title. TC could be much higher as they claim to pay a high bonus. Don’t start until end of July, and haven’t yet put in my two weeks. Sort of regretting the decision to leave. Feels like this would prevent me from getting to big 4, MBB or similar sized firm later down the road. Thoughts?

Looking for guidance regarding my situation. 20+ years in marketing/graphic design and 1+ years at current employer who recruited me. I was offered $70k (which was my salary at the time) and told that was their top end for my position. I was nervous to negotiate because I NEEDED out of my previous job (zero flexibility during covid) and I didn’t want to do anything to scare them off. I took the role of Marketing Multimedia Spec. (previous title was Sr. Marketing Spec.) and the $70k. Continued…

I wanted to apply for credit cards to get bonus points. My credit scores are 799 with equifax and 798 with TransUnion. Have 4 hard inquiries still on the record. My application for the amazon credit card got declined last March when my score was a bit lower and got ~6 hard inquiries. Personally I think it sucks that we won't find out if the credit card application is accepted or declined until the credit is hard pulled. Is there a more reliable way to be sure of the application being accepted?
