Hey everyone! So I left RSM about a year ago to go into industry and I’m realizing that public is more for me and would like to come back to RSM in Risk Advisory. I have 4 years experience and most of it in a senior position, my CISA and MBA, and I’m likely to also get another cert. I’m realistically looking at Supervisor but need more help at what to ask/expect for compensation since I have prior RSM experience. I’m currently making mid-80s in a HCL city Northeast. Thanks!

How beneficial will a CISA be? I’m trying to level set my expectations on how much the CISA will help on applications and such. I have 6 YOE, 4.5 in tech admin type roles and internal IT audit in industry & 1.5 in IT audit consulting, I have an M.S.IT degree. I’m taking the CISA exam next month.. will the CISA help me stand out more, or help me get to the front of the pack of applicants (for IT audit positions), per se? Curious what everyone’s opinions are..

If you have certifications do you demand your company to match your salary with the certification average salary or the role? For example: a senior IT auditor with a CISA average salary is 88k, but the company imposes pay brackets that caps the senior it auditor role at 85k, regardless of certain. It makes sense to ask for 88k or at the very least 85k, right?
