Recently got offered a tech company senior accountant opportunity in the Bay Area. Total comp comes down to $135k base and $25k equity. Is it worth to make the jump, or should I wait until making manager? 4.5 years PA experience here.

Looking to get out of public accounting and applied for a Staff Accountant position. The company is known for having a great culture and I’m thinking the schedule will be much better. I’m thinking the compensation will be similar in the new position as what I’m making now so I wouldn’t be getting the normal jump in pay people expect when leaving public accounting. If I were to be offered the position, should I take it? Should I expect a better position if I’m looking for an accounting type role?

What do you say when asked about compensation range during the phone screen / 1st interview? If it's an online app I leave it blank but when a person asks I just tell them a range because I don't know what else to say. I'm worried that I might miss out on a higher salary by telling them my range (85-90k for senior accountant in HCOL city).

Hello guys and gals, at some point I will have to negotiate the salary for my next promotion - to senior accountant. As most of us are in different parts of the world, I'd like to ask what % increase you'd expect in relation to your previous salary? Also any tips for negotiating? Thanks a million. 😁

Hi all, I am needing some help with a salary negotiation. I am trying to relocate to Pittsburgh area. I have 3.5 years of experiences now and getting offered between 80k-85k for base salary for a senior accountant or reporting analyst position. Does this sound about right? I get paid more right now (maybe becasue I am in Oil and Gad industry) but want to see what the market average look like in Pittsburgh.

I’m struggling and need advice. I’ve been in a senior role at my company for 3+ years, doing the job of a Director / VP without the title and comp. My execs dangle the promo carrot with insane goals but when I (over)deliver, I’m told I need to do more to earn the promo. It’s clear they won’t acknowledge my value and are content to take full advantage of my IP. I’m exhausted, emotionally raw, burnt out and want to quit—but as the sole breadwinner, I’m terrified of the job market. What do I do?
