The Big Four Accounting Option for Newly Minted Tax Lawyers

David Lat has an interesting thread on Above the Law on Career Alternatives for Attorneys: Accounting Firms, launched with this question from a reader:

Because of the weak economy (or perhaps because of my non-stellar grades), I was unable to get a summer associate position in Biglaw. I did, however, recently start an internship with a Big Four accounting firm.

My experience so far has been great (and has included three-hour lunches at expensive restaurants). The thing is that the salary is a joke compared to Biglaw.

I was wondering if you could do a thread about lawyers who began their careers at accounting firms, and their experience in moving up the ranks at those firms, lateral opportunities, salaries, etc.
