What should I expect for an Experienced Audit Associate starting salary? LCOL area. B4 and Regional Firms. I believe most firms begin Associates out of college at around $53-$55K here.

Came into consulting from financial services to be greeted with a $0 bonus in my first year. I’m not sure why I made the move. Perhaps it was for experience or the travel. But, I’ve come to the realization that money motivates me, and I’ll be venturing back where I belong.
