This is more a mental health question. Is it okay to leave a job after only 4 months? I’m finding it extremely stressful and a toxic work environment, but worried how it will look/ if its unprofessional since I’ve only been there a short time.

Would you leave to help a former manager you were close build out a new competency in a less prestigious firm? Promotion, higher pay, remote.

Working under PAS (mobility tax) for 3+ years and got an offer to go PCS. However the base is slightly lower by 3k from what I am making right now. Title down from senior to tax consultant ll, but re-evaluation in upcoming June and maybe able to get promote back to senior. My questions is, if the comp got negotiated the same. Doesn’t PCS actually opens more opportunities than global mobility tax in the future? I know I don’t want to be in mobility tax for ever.
