No, a2 should be around 75k to 80k.


No thanks I want moreeee

Lol at people thinking assurance associates should be 85k or more


Damn A2 make 85k?! I started at 68k in Jan as. A1


Depends on LOB, but Seems okay. S1 tax in hcol is about 95K give or take.

What would you say for mcol?

To compare, I'm S1 in HCOL got a 96k offer, for audit. Tax makes more..

For audit- this seems really damn good.

I am making 75 as an "A3" right now, and because of that they will be losing me

That’s fair I think. As a s1 you should be pulling 100-110 in a year or 2.

I’m A2 making 73,5 right now in HCOL

I made $53k as an A2 8 years ago. Kids these days….

I made 68k in nyc as an A2 less than 2 years ago lmao

I can confirm 85k is reasonable and you can get more. Applied for a staff accountant position as an A1 and received a 85k offer

Where at

That's very good offer. It's almost FDD salary.
