I know there was a post a sometime ago regarding salaries. I'm now wondering what pay scales are out there for Intenal Audit Assistants. The position entails performing audits as assigned by the head of IA and drafting reports. I think our staff is underpaid and am wondering what others are being paid in similar positions.
If you have a position similiar to this I would be interested to know your regional location, whether the position is hourly or salary, what the pay is, and if there is any potential for bonus. I really appreciate any input.
I personally haven't seen a lot of variation, assuming we are still talking about full-time audit staff. At some point, a bank is too small to have a full-time auditor, and other responsibilities may impact on the figures I gave above.
We're a 2.8 Billion institution. Auditor I pay range is 32.4 - 50.1, Auditor II 37.4 - 55.2, Sr. 44.9 - 74.9, VP has no ceiling. Quarterly bonus depending upon income, customer satisfaction survey, etc. shared equally by all non-management employees. Annual bonus for VP.

I am the Assistant Auditor of a $290 million bank upstate NY. There are just the two of us here. I am an officer. My salary range starts at $27,000 and caps at $50,000 before they have to change my title or upgrade the position. I am in the mid range of that. Been in this position for a little over 3 years. I get the standard 3% raise each year with a small year end bonus.
I came from a CU to a bank, much much higher pay here. I started there with a girl I am still friends with and I make over 10K more than her a year, and she didn't have to start over on the food chain. Same town.
Going to church doesn't make you a christian any more that standing in your garage makes you a car.
I'm posting Anon because there are others here that use BOL.

I came from a 1 billion $ bank to a $500 mill CU last year. I made more at the bank, had better benefits at the bank (Insurance and vacation), received average of $10,000 year end bonus a year at the bank, received stock options at the bank. But guess what? That bank sucked the life out of me-made me hurt to have to look at those suits everyday that didn't give a hoot about their customers. All it was about was the $. Biggest bunch of arrogant commercial lenders I've ever dealt with. Am I happier now at the credit union - you betcha - just a little bit broker. P.S. Yes, I know not all banks are that way but this one was. Don't knock it till you've tried it
I came from a CU to a bank. The bank is a community bank about $365 millon. I am an assistant to the internal auditor and started at $31,500 about 4 months ago. I have a degree and have been in the financial field for more than ten years. I find the community bank much rewarding than the credit union environment.
I know that I have been much better taken care of since I have come to the CU. My old BIG bank was not interested in keeping their employees happy. Smaller, community banks are probably a lot more similar to CUs.
