What is life like for accountants?

    Apologies if this is in the wrong place, I was just wondering if anyone has an idea of what sort of lifestyle accountants lead?

    I'm wanting to go into it, but then again I don't want to be working every hour, I want a good amount of free time, whilst also having the money to do things. I understand that busy periods may require longer working hours, but I'm talking overall.

    Also, are they well paid for what they do?

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    It's extremely boring. Honestly, there's nothing interesting to it. Luckily the hours are good but it would probably feel a lot longer just because of how boring it is.

    Accountants are the ones who are confirmed to get a mid life crisis.
