Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
People who have worked for fewer than five years bring home $68K on average. Median compensation in the five-to-10 year group, however, is higher at approximately $72K. Senior Accountants in New York with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $78K. People who have worked for 20 years or more actually report earning less than people who are in the middle of their careers; the veterans take home a mere $75K by contrast.
