Job security, ladder climb, and level of autonomy within respective fields of finance/careers?

I was wondering if anyone could give me their most reasonable/realistic outlook on how autonomous a job can be at higher positions.

All of these don't have to be answered just as much as people know/care to share.

Did you really just ask a HUGE question about every facet of finance/accounting, and expected to not get shit.

I mean 80% of those questions have been asked in separate, and all it takes is looking a little bit.

We aren't your bitches man, do some leg work if you want it. Condense it down to one single job function (or even two/three) and you'll get better responses.

My two cents: job security is not there in finance unless you're above average. You'll be on your toes, especially with the market cycles, unless you're above average and call the down's when they come. Most job security is going to be accounting (unless it gets automated).
