Hi guys. Went for interview with PWC for a SA position with IT risk/audit under the CSAT technologist(mid career) programme. Currently on 72k last annum. The interview with the SM went well and he replied to my thank you email asking me to prepare for the next step.

I am thinking that the HR will call me up soon next week as I did not indicate my expected in the application. For a SA position in PWC, is 80-85k/annum asking for too much? Seems like alot from research in glassdoor.

Hope to hear from you guys soon!

Is 72k your annual base or with bonus?

Do read the previous posts. Your new annual package for SA is likely to be around 65-70k. Yes, it will be a pay cut. The SM will tell you it's worth it for the "valuable experience" you can gain. You have to make your own decision whether it is true or not.

Am currently a local uni accounting student, with prior internship in audit in a mid tier firm. Is it possible for me to get into any big 4 advisory if i grad with only a second lower honours?

Reading up on big 4 threads, Iíve noticed they donít really take in private degrees unless you have additional certs/qualifications (ACCA etc.) Iím not sure how true this information may be.

Nonetheless, can anyone very this? As Iím currently taking my degree in Accounting & Finance from Kaplan - Murdoch, as well as sitting for ACCA-SBR paper, I would expect to complete all ACCA papers by the end of my course at Kaplan. (Exempted from F1-9). Also have a few years of Payroll experience (part time job while studying).

Hope someone could advise if I stand any chance at getting into the big 4 after I grad? Or would I be better off applying to mid-tiers?

you'd be better off working somewhere else for a short while before trying for the big 4s. look at this guy for example, pvte uni and then big 4:

You should try to work in mid-tier audit firms to gain experience first. I used to work in KPMG as HR so i know it is really competitive as we usually shortlist/offer local uni grads first. I heard from my colleague from experienced hire that they do take in those from RSM and BDO for SA1 or SA2 roles. It would be good if you have 3 to 4 years of exp.
