Comp Watch ’13: Considering a Mark of the Big 4 Beast

I suppose if public accounting firms were looking to brand their employees, offering them a 15%-no-questions-asked raise would be the way to do it:

If your company offered you a pay raise to tattoo its logo on your body, would you do it? A New York City real estate company made the offer and dozens of employees are getting inked. As CBS 2′s Emily Smith reported Tuesday, a tattoo can be a way to show off your personality. For Rapid Realty employees, it is the fast track to a 15 percent pay raise if you get inked with the company logo.
Hopefully the team at Grant Thornton goes back to the drawing board before making anyone an offer. We want any public accounting tatts for cash initiatives to be a success.
 
In any case, the performance evaluation process would still be more straight forward than it is now.
