Keep in mind, CIA salaries are predicted to increase by 11% from 2014 to 2024, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Just for reference, the overall projection of salary increase for other occupations is 7%. This is aside from Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), but that’s another story entirely.
As an entry-level CIA professional in the United States, you will be looking at a starting salary somewhere between $52,000 and $66,000 for a medium-sized company and $55,000 to $67,000 for a large company.
Once you’ve had about one to three years of experience and upgraded your job title, your annual salary will jump up to a range of $60,000 to $82,000. You can expect a salary increase by 15-25% each year you move up into a junior CIA position.

Once you’ve had about one to three years of experience and upgraded your job title, you can expect an increase in median salary to somewhere between $60,000 and $82,000. Furthermore, your salary as an audit manager can even go up to $111,000 in larger businesses. That’s about a 20-29% increase for a senior auditor position compared to the junior position! Since larger companies have more complex situations to handle, your salary will be much higher to compensate for all your talents and certified status.
