At the DeWinter Group, we provide retained search, contingent direct hire services, and interim or temporary services for all levels in finance and accounting across the San Francisco Bay Area, which includes San Francisco, the East Bay, the Peninsula and the South Bay. Given our functional niche, each year we prepare an market and salary analysis to provide valuable detailed information for those who lead finance organizations in the Bay Area. Competitive compensation is cited by our clients as one of the most important factors when it comes to attracting and retaining key employees. This study consists of hundreds of base salary data points in 2017 that represent full-time permanent roles from multinational corporations to private VC-backed start-ups. Base salary is only one component of the compensation package consideration, so we also address variable compensation in the narratives. This component is company-specific and not necessarily comparable among entities. In addition to compensation being a primary factor in hiring, companies will need to enhance their company culture, benefits and opportunities for growth to keep and retain employees. A few options include: enhanced job training, development, mentoring and career growth plans as well as more flexible work schedules to improve work-life balance.
