Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience have a median salary of $49K. Those who have been around for five to 10 years can expect to take home more — $51K on average. General Accountants with Financial Reporting skills see a median salary of $49K after reaching one to two decades on the job. Seasoned workers who boast more than two decades of relevant experience enjoy a median salary of $52K, which is substantially larger than the medians reported by folks with fewer years on their resumes.
