tech also has a linear path lmfao what are u smoking?

if you join this field it's either

1. you have passion for it despite the decades of OT / bully culture this field has

2. you have connections / talent / opportunities to earn big $$$ and progress fast

3. you're a dumbass, you read some outdated GES survey from 2010s saying big 4 = big money only to realize you got scammed hard so now you're high off copium trying to find every excuse to say that big 4 is great when in reality everyone knows you're internally crying having to OT everyday till 2-3am and looking like you're 50 in your 30s.

Unregistered Funny that big 4 ppl like to assume corporates have slower career progression

But you know one progression in commercial = 20-30% increment plus more bonus

Your ďprogressionĒin big 4 barely covers inflation

Good luck trying to make it out once u reach mgr rank and realise thereís 100 + jhk audit mgr like u trying to land a commercial spot and willing to take half your desired pay 💰

I rest pity them badly

In addition, the chance of getting promoted till you reach a salary of 8.5k and above after 7 years is lower if you were to start of in commercial as there are more factors to consider in the commercial world.
Lol I think he is trying to go one big round to insulate you are not good enough to get those limited slots.

earning 9k after 4 yoe, not bad imo, sure not as good as those IB gods earning 10k with 0 experience and some of u earning 15k with 4 yoe

but on the bright side i get to be stress-free for years. some of u on the other hand i see OTing in the office till 2-3am, that sucks, i dont know how fked is ur physical health, i would be surprised if u live beyond 50 with a work life like that
Which tech firm you work at? Faaang? How did you go from audit to tech pls
