salary, a title can't pay my daughters's cheerleading fees, nor my mortgage, nor for my Disney cruise. The salary affords me the opportunity to really enjoy what's important, I don't care if I'm a financial advisor, wealth planner, or anything else, just show me the money.

I don't get a salary so the title doesn't matter.

I used to think it was title when I was younger and naive, but I realized it's so arbitrary with each firm. Salary all day.

Looking to get out of public accounting and applied for a Staff Accountant position. The company is known for having a great culture and I’m thinking the schedule will be much better. I’m thinking the compensation will be similar in the new position as what I’m making now so I wouldn’t be getting the normal jump in pay people expect when leaving public accounting. If I were to be offered the position, should I take it? Should I expect a better position if I’m looking for an accounting type role?
