Unhappy Accountants: Go Get a 10% Raise

Are you sick of your job? Overworked? Unappreciated? Disrespected? Micromanaged? Ignored? Underdeveloped? Harassed? Thinking to yourself, "I don't get paid enough for this shit"? 

Well, you're right! You can totally go somewhere else and experience the exact same thing for 10% more than you're earning now:

Businesses are vying for accountants, financial reporters and data scientists, and are paying new hires an average of 10% more than their previous employer. That shows companies are willing to compete with an individual’s current employer and will try to fend off counteroffers from other potential employers.

“These are the in demand professionals,” said Paul McDonald, a senior executive director with Robert Half.  “We’ve been seeing the trend increase.”

Now the question becomes — is 10% enough to get you to leave your current gig for another?
