Downside is I'm sitting in front of a screen all day, doing cyclical tasks. You'll need a degree or two and maybe a CPA license to move up the ladder easier.
I'm a CPA, but I work in corporate accounting doing general accounting. I graduated college with a Bio degree. If you are detail-oriented and enjoy sitting in front of a computer using Excel, this is a great career. Everyone thinks you have to be really good at math to be an accountant. Nope. ~95% of the math I do is simple adding and subtracting. The barrier to entry is low. My accounting classes were taken at community colleges in order to get the required course-load to qualify for the CPA exam. This was back in 2011.
There are plenty of routine, low-stress accounting jobs where you can work about 40 hours a week for a very good salary. I'd highly recommend this profession. (There also many high-paying accounting/CPA jobs where you'll work 50+ hours a week and be STRESSED. I'd avoid those.)
