SEATTLE - What is the average salary for a senior auditor in financial statement assurance in Seattle? Seriously asking. Want to make sure I do not underpay my team.

I think he is just testing the waters. Seems like a generous payout for a standard S1. Is he specialized in any particular set of skills?

In a previous life - when I was promoted to senior in audit at top 5-6 firm, new salary was $63K as S1 (2016). Then S2 was $68k. Felt I was underpaid, but everybody does.

Public or Industry? There’s a big gap here

Nope. But I want to treat people fairly so they can fully commit to work

Hmm thank you guys for the responses. I am in industry paying a S1 for about 90000. Recently he complained a lot about not being paid enough so I am worried.

A staff 1 should be making $50k max!!!! $90k is WAY WAY too high

Your S1 sounds like a brat. I’m an S2 in Seattle making significantly less than that. He needs to suck it up and be grateful.

He is pretty smart and I like him a lot. I have been under budget pressure for a while so this year probably will not get him too much of a raise. Hopefully he understands. Sigh.

OP, trust me when I say your S1 is being paid very very well. I highly doubt even a BIG4 would offer over 90+ for a 1st or 2nd year senior auditor. Idk anyone who is making nearly that much and I live in a high COL area.

If he was in advisory or consulting different story tho but not in assurance

Anyone use a pro microphone and mixer to communicate over Teams/Zoom? Tired of trash audio (having to repeat myself, knowing people are hearing me smash keyboard as I talk and take notes, etc) and thinking about pulling the trigger but wondering if the upgrade is worth it... i.e. do you get significantly better engagement from people if they hear you more clearly?
