What salary should I be targeting in industry senior internal audit roles? 2.75 years of experience, CPA, CISA passed. No graduate degrees. Senior 1 in Risk (70% Internal Audit/30% IT Audit) promoted last October. Current Salary is 69.5k. Not FSO I was thinking 80-85? I’m in South FL for reference. What other compensation factors should I be looking at? Are bonuses common at a senior non revenue generating employee level? Thanks, new to all of this and got an offer for 75k-feels low

Went from 2 years PwC to non profit IA, comp changed from 66k (low because of stagnate COVID wages) ->100k in HCOL. Had another offer with higher comp but worse WLB. You’re definitely getting lowballed

Thank you. I started about 15% less than that and your staff 2 salary was my senior salary with the initial COVID raise, was later bumped up to 69. Feels like 80-90 may be more of my range

$75K is very low with your experience. I would expect $85K minimum and only if there’s some great benefits, variable comp, or phenomenal WLB. $90-$100K should be your target
