Any Accountants in the UK that make good money? or is it a dead end job? Can someone make me feel better about what i'am going into, my engineer "friends" told me that i wont make good money as an accountant and said that soon accountants will be gone due to automation, is this true? should i switch to CS?

Engineer here, my sister is an accountant.

I entered my first job earning 21k which is super low end cuz im a lazy fuck.

My sister is busting her balls and earning sub 14k

If you're an accountant and you wanna make big bucks you gotta start committing fraud.

£14k is barely even minimum wage McDonalds tier. Your sister is a whore

No stick with accounting, CS is the type of occupation that will have you blow your brains out after 6 months if you're not autistic (im pretty sure half my office, myself included is somewhere on the spectrum).

It's really not as bad as I was letting on, my sister does get some perks. She is the lowest grade and her company pays for all tuition for her to jump to the next grade
