New tax SM here focused on mainly F500 provisions with a technology background - wondering where to take my career at this point. Does it make sense to take a tax M/SM job in industry, chase the carrot of 5-6 years at SM, or try to pivot into straight tax technology (either in industry or public)? I have a lot of goodwill built up at my firm and I work hard, but I am so incredibly burnt out after the last two years.
