Market Report: Compensation, Bonuses & Benefits

As you know, corporations can be slow to change HR policies and office practices. Windows to transform a corporation's culture are often far and few. In a worker-short market, the Big 4, especially PwC, are making significant strides to keep their talent from going elsewhere. Below is a summary of benefits and bonuses to see if your tax department is keeping up with the competition.

Big 4:

With unlimited PTO, remote employment options, parental leave, and salary increases that outpace inflation, the Big 4 are quickly making changes to retain their talent in such a tight market. PWC has announced that 9% merit increases will be the standard this year for high performers, and the other three are anticipated to follow suit. Merit increases can range from 9% to 18% annually.

From PwC:

"We're embarking on a three-year journey to reimagine our PwC people experience. To give you the power to build a personalized career tailor-made to support your development, well-being, purpose, and ambitions. We call it My+, a $2.4 billion investment to take bold action and bring our vision to life over the next three years to empower you to reach your full potential at every stage of your life." more on PwC benefits here.
