Recently got an offer in LCOL/MCOL for a senior tax accountant role for 87k. 3 years of public experience and have been in industry for almost a year. Current job pays about 5k more, but is a bit of a rarity in my city. New job’s team and culture are more appealing to me. Is the offer reasonable or should I try to negotiate? I’ve never negotiated before so I’m scared they might pull the offer. Thanks!

Thoughts on FP&A? I’m currently a senior tax accountant and got asked to the last round of interviews for a senior FP&A position (narrowed down to 2 people).

Only thing holding me back is I made manager this week and overall like the flexibility of PA, hate busy season though.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.
