Big 4 Audit Clients

Big 4 audit clients are what arguably make the renowned largest audit companies in the world worth working for. These companies, as you may already know, are Deloitte, PwC, Ernst & Young, and KPMG.

A staggering 100% of the 457 Fortune 500 companies with public information were audited by one of the Big 4 accounting firms. Talk about market domination!

Each client, especially the larger ones, is easily worth millions of dollars in annual fees, making each relationship extremely important. The most successful senior partners at each Big 4 firm have usually spent years – if not decades – building strong relationships with their clients’ management teams.

As a result, each of the Big 4 spend millions – yes millions – of dollars every year cajoling and convincing companies to renew or begin engagements. This is what the Big 4 call “client hospitality and entertainment,” which means a lot of free dinners, sports games, gifts, and more.

If you’re deciding which Big 4 accounting firm to work for, one method is to decide which clients you want to work for. Take a look below for an exhaustive list of the Big 4 Fortune 500 audit clients and see if any catch your eye.
