What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?
Not clear how they're determined. Our first progression was 6 months in, but I was on the same salary as other consultants despite outperforming them because I was told performance could not be determined from merely 6 months. I feel underpaid because I work more and the pay has not moved in years, but this is an industry issue. We were given a discretionary bonus by our partners last year, but bonuses generally depend on performance of Australia and NZ, so we do not often get bonuses for working extra in the transactions place.

No bonuses. Small increase between years, pay only becomes worth it when you reach senior (i.e. 3/4 years in). Don't count the $2,000 bonus you get for finishing EYDT as few ever finish in time and the time it takes to complete is not worth the money.
Graduate, Auckland
It's fine, we're paid the living wage but doesn't seem to compare to the work we're putting in
Midlevel, Auckland
Salary is typical amongst other accounting firms however it is not amazing; many people leave to enter other jobs after a few years and get a significant salary increase
Midlevel, Wellington
Pay is really low compared to market and the cost of living e.g. rent and student loans, for how many hours are done and the skills that are used.
Graduate, Auckland
The initial pay is not the best, but as you get more experience under your belt, it does go up quite quickly.
Graduate, Auckland
Pay is low compared to what you could receive if you worked out in industry. No bonuses available
Midlevel, Christchurch
Salaries for graduates are low compared to industry, but in line with other big 4 firms. Pay doesn't consider the additional hours we work in my team due to deal timeline pressure.
Midlevel, Auckland
Starting salaries are low. Picks up around senior con and Manager level.
Midlevel, Auckland
Pay is very low in comparison to industry. Given the amount of work and the quality/difficulty of work we deal with, it's not very representative of the effort people have to put in. This is reflective of the number of leavers we have had in the past few months.
Midlevel, Auckland
It's a shame that we get paid quite small salaries as graduates, but I guess it comes with the exchange that we will be working in a company with a great global reach. We don't really get bonuses unless our team does really well in the financial year.
Graduate, Auckland
Far too low for graduates, resulting in high attrition of good people and general demotivation.
Graduate, Whakatane
The pay is awful considering how hard we work, and it doesn't look like it's changing in the near future. You don't come to this company for pay.

What are your company's best or most unusual perks? For example: free tickets, free dinners, moving expenses, taxis, pension, etc.
Free dinner and taxi whenever working past 7pm, which I have used a lot. Also frequent social events with free meals and activities. The transactions team usually does large celebratory lunches after significant transactions.
