IMG_4817Notice that I used the single word compensation as the title of this post. It is amazing how that one word gets peoples’ attention in the accounting profession.

I wanted to get your attention so I could direct you to a good article on AccountingWEB – $53,300: The Average Starting Salary for New Accounting Grads. Take the time to follow the link and read it.

It amazes me how so many firms go to great lengths to keep salaries a secret. It is my observation, especially with all of the internet resources, that keeping salaries a secret is not possible. Never was, even in the old days.
