Ya know, I don’t know why we’re even bothering with this since Going Concern sucks but on the off chance one of you gets his BVDs in a bunch over us not doing it, here we are.

Historically, the emails start trickling in right about this time each year, presumably after the rulers of Ernstonia are able to carefully glean through PwC’s compensation numbers and adjust expectations in a downward fashion accordingly.

Because we know how much y’all love to compare (to each other, to other firms, to the dude at the urinal next to you, to prior years), we’re doing something a little different this year. Below, you’ll find an infographic on 2017 EY compensation numbers. Assuming you guys don’t hold out on us like an angry girlfriend with a headache, we’ll be able to provide even more graphic data on this year’s numbers after the last holdouts let it spill. This is entirely up to you, but just to make things a little easier we’ve also created a survey so you can skip the comments entirely.

We’ve been doing this for many, many years but just in case you’re rusty, the drill is as follows (survey link if you prefer that method):

  • Position, promotion (if applicable)
  • City (preferred) or region
  • Line of Service
  • Rating if you so desire
  • % Raise
  • % Bonus (if any)
  • Old & New Base

Not at EY and afraid we might forget about your firm? Hit us up at tips@goingconcern.com when the comp chatter starts at your firm and maybe we’ll get around to it.
