No. Unless you were extremely overpaid.

Or leaving to a low cost of living area

Nope

No. But I am not surprised. Average salary for senior accountant is not high even in HCOL. Those jobs do not require PA experience and credentials. That's why we are in PA and aim for highly paying industry jobs. Keep looking. FYI. I left for over 40% raise in industry.
