if youre using that to decide which one to apply for, youre making a mistake.

for example, TAS pays more than audit, but upon qualifying, an auditor can get a job that pays better in industry. the same can be said for all of them.

Would point out that TAS has higher paying exits than audit in general.

Taking into account on an average career basis would probably go:

Lead advisory corporate finance (part of financial advisory)
Consulting (strategy)
International and indirect tax
Other consulting and financial advisory
Audit/transaction services
Technology
Other tax
Risk advisory

On the whole it's all much of a muchness overall and no significant distinction - in advisory you'll certainly earn more in your early career though which can benefit quality of living later on.
