If you want to compare like-for-like, you should be comparing the salary of a B4 audit partner with that of a lead programmer or an MBB consulting partner. Those earn far more, and as it is, their prospects of partnership are better than in audit.
Strawman argument.

Our team specializes in selling health insurance and investment linked products to young and middle-aged adults. They are our target segment because they are at the age where they are earning income and require investment and insurance advisory services from professionals like us! This is where we stand and deliver our unparallel skills and expertise to the market place, value-adding to the society as a whole.

Most importantly, we offer attractive and unparallel renumeration to our aspiring professionals who are able to deliver results in this rapidly growing industry. My team under me has proven track record of exceeding their monthly target sales over the years, and they are earning more than investment bankers, lawyers, consultants, software engineers and auditors.

Feel free to drop me a reply on this and we are happy to discuss. Come and join my team and let's build a better working world.

Most MNCs will have accounting, marketing, and IT departments.

But if you join a precision engineering MNC, to do accounting, you are just a cost centre, a support department. You can still become Head of Finance or FC, but youíre still not the main driver of the firm as compared to the Head Engineer.
