Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Accountants in Houston, experience in the field does not tend to play a major role in salary decisions; in general, pay does not go up drastically with more experience, and earnings grow incrementally instead. Starting out, salaries fall in the $49K range but grow to $55K after five to 10 years. Between 10 and 20 years, pay reaches $55K. As Accountants in Houston reach two decades on the job, salary growth continues, albeit at a slower pace, with pay averaging $57K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 12 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than 10, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 10 percent. Between one and nine years is the typical spectrum of experience for those in this line of work—of those who took the survey, more than half land within this radius.
