Hey the range is really up to the company and the industry.
At a Big Four (pile of Sh@#-type job); expect them to pay director-level salaries in the range of 100-145 depending on location and book of biz.
At a manufac. company, expect them to call you out if you do not have obvious manufac. experience - they think it is sooo specialized and you NEED to have it. In reality, it is the easiest type of IA and it all moves in the same manner - a college kid could lead audits, maybe not well but he could. Salary: about 80-110 depending on revenues; think 500 million about a 100k.
At Fin. Services: DIr. get about 120+; but you have to come in with a ton of derivatives experience and full-out Fas 133 accounting. For banks, just being a VP is NOT enough. Bank VPs often manage a chair, a desk and a computer.
Good skills to have for all: the CIa; does not mean you get it - just that you got it.
CPA - always good for putting people at meetings to sleep and to solve the issues the Controller and CFO have screwed the pooch on.
PMP - the best to have, bcuz your life is managing projects and people to fuition.
CFSA - good if you are in a bank and you do not have a CIA; but then, if you work in a bank and have done audits - you could use the historical work papers to benchmark. So, you really do not need a cert.
ACL is good, as is excel expertise - and I mean expertise.
This was written by me: a guy that has a Top 20 MBA, has worked for 100 Billion Asset bank in Ops Risk teaching the IA peeps how to do their jobs and consulted for Fortune Top 50, and took a 14 Bil co. to REIT public leading Sox. That is my reference.
