    That is awesome! I know the hours are largely uncivilised but that is my full time wage and I regularly work over time (unpaid).

    Digital artist/animator, 90k for 48hrs a week plus a 10k bonus. I get 3 months parental leave. Also, I know someone working for sydney uni who gets 18 months paid leave (!!!) just about to have her second kid. Yep, 3 years fully paid leave. Aye carumba.

    I'm an accountant on $250k for 37.5 hours a week. I used to do banking beforehand which paid more. But having had to live in expensive places like London or Sydney I could never save much. Now in Perth I can.

    i got 3 months paid mat leave

    I'm in admin/finance, 20hrs a week about 35k. I have serious envy in some of these careers - not the $$$ part but what you do. I regret not choosing a field and specialising in it. You guys rock

    I must be in the wrong field of science!

    I know I think it's very decent money ( though it is a high stress/pressure job).

    I only worked 2 shifts a week ( 1 X 8 hour and 1 X 12 hour on the weekend) . I also got nearly the whole year paid on mat leave
    28 weeks at half pay (of 0.5 FTE) from my employer.
    Then 18 weeks minimum wage from govt.

    I do enjoy what I do. It is the firm I work for that is stressful. Is it worth it? Not always. But I don't know what else I would do now. I have been doing this a really long time!

    I'm an accountant (CA/CPA). How do you work so little and make so much? Tell me your secret, please!
