Unhappy Accountants: Go Get a 10% Raise

Are you sick of your job? Overworked? Unappreciated? Disrespected? Micromanaged? Ignored? Underdeveloped? Harassed? Thinking to yourself, "I don't get paid enough for this shit"?

That shows companies are willing to compete with an individual’s current employer and will try to fend off counteroffers from other potential employers.

“These are the in demand professionals,” said Paul McDonald, a senior executive director with Robert Half.  “We’ve been seeing the trend increase.”
