At what point in my career would my public accounting salary exceed an industry salary? Current an A3 making 54,900. In industry it looks like Senior is at 75,000. Assuming 12% annual raises in public and 3% annual in industry, it looks like maybe it wouldn’t take too long. I’ve heard industry raises are nowhere near what they are in public. Really looking for a discussion here. In industry, it almost seems like they tempt you with a big starting salary, but then soon you’ll be under public.
