How much am I being underpaid roughly? I'm a 2nd yr tax manager at big 4 (not in a specialty group) in Chicago and have been a solid performer. My current base salary is 107K. My 1st year salary was at 96K. Just want a confirmation that I'm currently being under paid compared to market and by how much. Please share your insight. Thanks!

Looking for some advice on an exit opportunity - Current role - 1 year post-MBA at a T2 strategy firm making $148 Potential role - senior level role at a small healthcare company at $265 + equity Seems like a slam dunk, but is moving to a company that isn’t well known going to harm me in the long run? Should I wait for a F500 role that is lower title / comp but better name recognition? Should I wait until I’m manager? Having a hard time with this from a long term view vs short term

I’m interviewing for accounting manager with a pre-revenue company, it will start generating revenue this year, and has plan for IPO. I have total 7 years public accounting experience. How does $130k +10% bonus in Los Angeles sound, as I’m relocating from a lower COL? All jobs have risks, I know stability and staffing can be an issue. What other risks I should consider? TIA

I’ve been given the choice of a mid year promotion or market salary adjustment (MSA) this July. If I decide to go through with the MSA then the promotion will happen this December. My career manager is suggesting I go for the MSA since the total salary increase will be larger in the long run. Would it be a better career move to take the mid-year promotion or the 💰?

Trying to decide b/t two offers, currently an Mgr w/ M7 MBA. Both are traditional multinationals, but diff sizes. Any help appreciated! 1) Director title, low brand recognition, smaller company (low multi-billion $ rev) no hope for stock. 185k base, 20% bonus, but heard no bonuses or salary bumps this year. 2) Senior Manager title (so one step below 1st offer), much larger company ($50B+), potential for stock at Director level, $175k salary, 10% bonus, but company is doing well despite COVID

I had my FY performance review two weeks ago and received an equivalent of 4/5, or “good performer” standing. Problem is, I’ve always asked for feedback and have made transparent my openness to constructive criticism, but my manager always says I’m performing well and doing a perfect job. Post-projects I’m told I’ve nailed it, made significant impact, etc, so I honestly expected 5/5. I dont mean to be b*tching, but 4/5 screws with my bonus and salary and I’ve been grinding hard for this

Came into public accounting from school & put my head down & made it to Senior Manager (maybe a year early). Now, reflecting, I am considering whether this is what I want to do going forward and worried about being pigeon-holed to tax for life if I stay longer. Comp also has never kept up to expectations. For others who’ve been in this position, what made you stay or go? Is the grass greener? Or should I stick with it and be happy w/ slight chance at partner @ some pt down the line?
