Compared to Workers in Other Fields, Accountants Are Pretty Happy with Their Pay

More than half of accounting professionals believe they are well-compensated, a LinkedIn survey revealed.

Accountants might be burned out but they feel much better about the career they chose on the 15th and the last day of every month.

That’s because more than half of accounting professionals who participated in LinkedIn’s most recent Workforce Confidence Index Survey say they are well-compensated for the job they do.

The workers who are the most unhappy about their pay are educators (39%), entrepreneurs (41%), and social service workers (43%).

Only about 29% of the 32,162 American professionals surveyed plan to ask their bosses for a pay bump in the coming months, LinkedIn said.
