Thanks! I am very grateful for being able to find this opportunity. Local CA / TO firms, it's really hard for them to pay 200K+ base, just the market geo and tax systems. Unless you get to VP+

Why didn’t you take the AVP role at TD/ RBC? Your overall TC would have been greater and probably path to VP in 18m to 24m. Didn’t realize bonus would be 50% but I believe it was mentioned offered more as a way to match your TC. Congrats some great exit opts you had. Did you apply or they reached out to you?

Care to share insights on MLSE? They seem to be hiring quite a bit

They did tell me that in the new year, they would have more postings out. They were a bit slow in NOV / DEC. So I guess they are getting back on recruiting. But the time between my interviews and application was quite some time as well. Maybe they are just swamped.

Received a job offer ($118K), $17k less than the starting point of the range ($135k - $165K) for this position that the recruiter initially communicated to me.

How would you handle? Can I try negotiating again or is a 2nd time too much back and forth?
