Not sure on experienced hire roles, but my coworkers who made senior in audit were around 80k. That's straight out of college and being promoted from 1st year a in a high col city (NYC) . Just another data point for you

okay thanks! I’d be in advisory, not audit. Still helpful tho!

Depends a lot more on if the work you did in PA/industry can put you closer to manager type senior or 1 year senior simply based on ask and less about skill. If just getting title because you have experience but not relevant much then would say 70s. If you can prove you can hit the ground running than 90s would seem fair

How do you think the salary range would change if I were offered experienced associate instead of senior? I had my interview yesterday

Aim for 85-95, I wouldn’t take it for under 85 assuming it’s a travel role.

I’ve been told 80k is unrealistic. But I’ve gotten this info from people who don’t work in this service line or in PA. So I really have no clue.
