Currently a senior accountant at a small company doing the monthly close financial process. Got two offers, one as a senior cost accountant and one as a senior financial analyst. Both similar comp and at great companies that have 10,000 or more employees. I’ve been wanting to get experience in both cost accounting and financial analysis.

Which role would be the smartest move based off the titles?

I am just curious what other people with the financial analyst title in corporate finance are making. I am around the $80-85k with no bonus and 4 YOE.

Is it a good career move working as a senior financial analyst at Amazon? This would be a lateral move.

4YOE, all current company. Overall happy, I think they’ve compensated me fairly over 70% raise over the years plus bonus. But seeing other salaries I am thinking perhaps I can make more in tech and also gain more experience as current company has pretty outdated systems. I feel some loyalty to current company but also scared that I might regret if new job doesn’t turn out great. Thoughts?

Salary expectations for Senior Financial Analyst with Amazon? For those who have transitioned into this role, any insight on cash compensation in the PNW? I got reached out to by an internal recruiter that is asking for my cash comp expectation but I don’t want to lowball or state too much either…so what is reasonable?

Deloitte Engagement Financial Analyst (EFA) Practice - Could someone inside the practice or the firm provide some insight on this practice? I was recently contacted by a recruiter about the practice, and it sounds intriguing but I still have a lot of questions. Particularly whether this is a consulting role, or more of an internal budgeting role? If you also don’t mind sharing, am very curious of the work/life balance and salary expectations. Thank you in advance!
