Looking for a reality check. What would you expect to be the compensation, salary plus bonus, of the head finance and accounting person of a company that does $5 to $7 million in revenue in the marketing services industry in nyc? 10 years of work experience, bachelor degree, not a cpa, two direct reports. Thank you in advance.
