nope, typically big 4 pay less to their cadets than mid tiers because demand is inelastic. No matter how low the pay people still come for the training and prestige associated. From what I've heard big 4 cadets get around 32-35k. Mid tiers can be as high as 46k (incl super). Although mid tiers can go down to 35k and lower even.how much is EY paying their Cadets? is it in line with mid tiers and smaller firms or what?
