Didn’t find the 30% pack bump everyone is talking about. And some controller positions require a combined public accounting and corporate experience. Feel it’s really hard to leave as a manager, seems more senior opportunities out there. Any advice?

30% may be unrealistic depending on how much you make currently

Is 30% paybump a requirement? What are you aiming for? There are manager positions out there but typically they want more experience before you get the really good offers.

That’s what I have been seeing. So the usually first job in industry may not be that good? Has to jump again in a couple years?

I’ve long disliked the term ethics. Definitions of ethics all refer to morals. Morals are very personal and vary a lot from person to person, culture to culture. Law is how we as a society express our preferences and impose rules and restrictions on ourselves. So the question should never be about whether companies can be ethical. What does that mean? One person thinks eating meat is unethical, another thinks it’s perfectly ethical. Companies should focus on complying with the law.
