It Arrived! – My Copy of the Rosenberg Survey

I always look forward to the day in September each year when my copy of The Rosenberg Survey arrives. That happened yesterday.

I have always found that public accounting is a fascinating profession. It’s challenging, interesting, never boring and profitable (if your firm is managed properly). For example, this year in the Forward section of the survey, Charles Hylan shows us that the average HIGH partner comp in the largest firms is $1,175,000 and the LOW partner comp in smaller firms is $247,000. That’s quite a spread and shows young accountants the possibilities for their career growth. Use the survey to see where your firm is doing well and where you might need to focus some attention. You can order it here.

Be sure to read my comments, along with several other CPA management consultants, in the Observations section beginning on Page 6.
