What do companies like amazon Apple etc pay people in their accounting departments. Just wondering what jobs y’all are always saying pay more in industry because I never see high salaries for accountants. Or is it more senior positions like controller or like financial analysts etc that y’all exit into from PA?

I think the high paying jobs are more in FP&A. I think when people say they leave for industry accounting, it’s more about the better hours and maybe a slight pay increase if you live in a LCOL or MCOL. If you live in a HCOL you may end up taking a salary cut to work in industry accounting. Internal Audit however I’ve found from my experience seems to pay more than accounting.

Demand is higher for IA than accounting since it’s more niche so most places are willing to pay more

Depends on the position, Fortune 500 companies pay senior GL accountants between $95k-$105k here in NJ (HCOL) with a nice bonus and other benefits Most people exit into these jobs after making senior in PA

I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.

I’m going through clearance for my current role and recently learned many are leaving the project to work on other projects so I and one other person will be the only ones left.…
