LOL Joker so true!

It's lovely here Brian. I'm dang glad I don't work for the Fairbanks bank that posted (At least I think it was Fairbanks) I can't imagine living on that salary in Fairbanks. And besides, Auditors should be paid a premium because everyone in the bank thinks they're out to get them. You should get extra bucks just because folks won't sit next to you at the company picnic

After reading this stuff I started thinking how lucky I was I only have this one tiny little regulation to live with, some staff and a good (or compared to many posted, pretty great) salary (and yet I of course deserve more ). I love my job and no one runs when I enter a room! What could be better

Yeah - I've MORE than earned the MBA designation. To earn that illustrious degree you had to have ample experience in IT conversions, mergers, acquisitions, restructures, regulatory changes, Sr. Mgmt changes, many, many exams and audits (a few with training crews ), employee embezzlement, etc.,

But, my personal fav - converting to Power Proof and 6 bundles are out of line on the second pass so they get encoded with the wrong amount - error wasn't noticed - cash letter goes out! Let me see you balance and clear up that Due From Recon!!

I've no time to break this down, but I'm getting the feeling that females work for less or a better way to put it - get paid less. Of course, it's my understanding that that is still the case in most fields, but this type of work should provide a level playing field as gender is not an issue, at all.

These two posts show that this "survey" has no real value. They both make about the same, but one has 14 year more 'banking' esperience - but is also in a much smaller asset environment.

Salary - it's a 'whatever the market will bare" scenario in banking with special circumstances at the individual level always a factor, asset size, staff level, outsourced versus inhouse compliance tasks, etc. Besides, each institution looks at compliance and auditing in a different way and if a specific institution has a 'complex balance sheet' the compliance/audit people had better be paid sufficiently to respond to that level of risk.

As an aside, is $31K a livable wage for anyone in the banking field? Hopefully, you also get a clothing allowance or, perhaps, you only work three days a week.

Male, BS in Accounting from PSU
Posted By: Anonymous

Re: Salary - 07/15/04 08:42 PM

29 Female
BS in History (and I'm in banking?!?!)
approx. 4 yrs banking (accounting, loans)
1 yr audit/compliance department
staff position
$25,750
1 week vacation, 10 sick days, no personal
great benefits
Rural South Central US
Asset size approx. 250 million
Females in this area are greatly underpaid than their male counterparts. A few months after I joined this department a male was hired with a starting salary above mine. I have more experience in banking and have an age advantage. At least you would think! The South is a wonderful place to live but don't count on getting an equivalent assessment. I was not raised with that mentality so its hard to adjust. Oh, I grew up in the South!

As an aside, is $31K a livable wage for anyone in the banking field? Hopefully, you also get a clothing allowance or, perhaps, you only work three days a week.





Why do say that?

That may be "the job" - if it were not in the Western US. I would rather make my $50M and have 2200 sq ft home on 5 acres with a $275 house payment - in the South!

You have to remember all things are NOT equal.

Re: Salary - 07/19/04 06:57 PM

Well, there it is - salary is relative with location a really big factor - on $74K in for example, Los Angeles, you cannot afford to buy 5 acres to put a house on.

Salary needs to be fair, based on what needs to be and is being accomplished, but it's not at the top of the list for most people.
