Accounting

To everyone who complains about salary and hours: talk to a marketing major grads. Their salaries are not even close to ours, bonuses are far and between, hours sucks (just not as busy-season-driven)

OP. The whole "there's shittier jobs out there so quit your bitching" mentally is pretty annoying. We'll bitch if we want to.

@D1 - I'm all for complaining (or bitching, as you say) - that's what the forum is for. Don't get me wrong. Just instilling some hope in the accounting masses that our career choice wasn't the worst decision ever ☺️

And they don't have the same exit options as we do. So you could have picked a worse major in college 🤓

I meet a lot of people in their late 20s who work more hours that are unpredictable, don't have much flexibility, get paid less, and don't really have any other options.

There are shittier jobs out there, but also remember there are better ones too! Always move towards improving and not be complacent

Do you get a bonus? How much? Do you count it in your salary when posting here? 180 base, 50 bonus, plus 50-75k profit sharing and 50k equity a year. Still feel underpaid on initial base salary :/

6th year of practice. I need to get out of insurance defense. Probably would prefer to be out of litigation in general. I also need to get out of south Florida/Florida in general because my salary is not great compared to the high cost of living in my city and I haven’t been able to find any other reasonable paying job. Been looking on and off for 5 years. Prospects are extremely poor. My question is: what are some good JD-preferred career paths or lateral opportunities I should explore?

Does exiting consulting to a government position that pays the same raise your market value? Figured I could boomerang for a raise by noting I'd expect a raise to go back to contracting.
