Senior 3 taking 2 parts of his CPA right before promotion. Not sure I’m going to be able to pass both parts. Aside from the bonus, would my salary remain the same from S3 to S4?

You'll still be in the same range, so if you're not already at the top there will be some room for an increase, just probably not much.

I had a 4th year going into 5th year senior on my team before. She was pretty much an acting manager on every aspect but didn’t have CPA. She got paid the max amount and the max bonus within the senior range. I think it depends on where you are in the range currently. If you are not at the maxed out level, you will see a raise.

How do you know that you’re not getting promoted

Cpa is a requirement for promotion to manager for audit

Because I’m not sure I’ll get passing scores in my CPA. And I’m aware is a requirement. My question is not whether I’ll get or not promoted, it’s whether my salary will change from an S3 to S4.

At a minimum, you will get the inflation adjustment, which should be 3 to 5%.

In a tough situation and need some advice. I’m an audit associate who got passed up for senior promotion this year, but senioring a busy season engagement. There is another senior that is supposed to be on the job, but he hasn’t been staffed on the engagement the past couple weeks and is off this week. I now have the full responsibility of this engagement on my hands and feel like it’s pretty unfair considering I got passed up for promotion and am not getting paid to be a senior. What do I do?
