Not sure it’s a no brainer. You’re gonna catch that 72k salary before long anyway (what are you currently making?) and if you’ve accumulated substantial social capital where you are / have a manager-senior manager-partner who wants to pull you up the ranks behind them ... def stay. If you got a “meh” reputation where you are currently and need a reset and are ready to bust it to make a good impression - then maybe

City and function? Chicago makes more than say an office in Kansas. Certain functions have higher starting salaries than others.

They are. There is enough unstaffed work for tax year 2018 in Chicago Tax BTS to hire 60 people at the staff level and we would still have to hire more staff because the number is closer to 70 people we need

Lol, 70% of these experienced hires at the TC2/Senior/Manager suck in my opinion. Several of the TC2s that I had didn’t know federal income tax expense is an M-1, two of the seniors didn’t know what the DRD was who had Corp experience for years, and an ASC740 manager didn’t know what transition tax is. Like WTF. How did we hire such stupid people?!?
