Comp Watch ’12: CFOs

As many of you continue striving towards your career goals to occupy the CFO chair, we thought you might like to know a little information on how well that dream job pays.

According to a recent Grant Thornton/Financial Executives Research Foundation survey, public company CFOs saw their average base salaries climb from to $286,500 to from $277,400 with average total cash compensation being $459,301. Unfortunately for private company CFOs, they saw their base average salary decline from $206,900 to $197,400. Still, an average total cash comp of $277,979 is nothing to sneeze at. And while more than 80% of those public and private CFOs surveyed did receive an annual bonus, when only 9% are getting a country club membership.

Kinda makes you wonder if it's all worth it.
