How many people do you support and what kind of responsibilities do you have, out of curiosity?

like

I support any and all Partners/Managers/EA's in the US who put in a request for anything Tax related. I have completed well over 1000 tasks in my first year in this position and I am feeling extremely burnt out, so are my fellow colleagues. KPMG seems to treat this position as more of an assembly line help desk admin role which is probably how they justify the low salary. To be honest, this is much harder than a typical EA role where you have time to build rapport with a few execs and prove your work over time. Here in this position, you always have to prove yourself because you're dealing with a new colleague almost everytime which is beyond exhausting.

What is the COL where you are located?

I am in the Boston area but KPMG bases all remote EA salaries out of Dallas.

What's an EA?

Salary seems very low. Most people I know with that type of role are 80+. These are in private thou, no input on public.

Seems low. I would start looking around.

I know we are short on good EAs. If you don’t feel appreciated at KPMG, time to bounce! That salary also seems low. A good EA is worth more than their weight in gold.

Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2? I got a few offers recently, and now have to make a decision between Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2. GT has higher salary and position, while KP's people are really nice and professional during the interview, besides it's hard for me to say no to a Big 4 opportunity. GT is focusing on enterprise and high net worth taxes, while KP is focusing on energy mining industry tax and tax provisions. Hard to make decision!
