I’ve been to a few firms. My first firm out of college paid 62k to the freshman class. Few things happen, not going my way and I get let go. This was a national firm, 800 people in 5 locations.
I’ve been to a couple firms since. 45k starting out as if I was fresh out of college this was a 40 person firm, although it was quite terrible how the partners treated us. The next firm with over a year of experience, paid me 55k with my CPA. The firm I’m at now has me doing basic reviews of 1040s and preparation of larger returns, are paying 58k.
An I wasting my time on smaller firms? I just stared my job, but I’m thinking next summer taking everything I know to a mid tier firm if I can’t get paid well.
