I'm a tax staff 2 who will be a senior this fall. I'm looking into leaving tax and have explored staff accounting roles. What should my expectations be for salary? Less/more/same as now pre promotion?

You'd be lucky to keep the same salary let alone a bump

I just made a similar transition recently with about a 20% bump

Wow that's great!

I'm assuming I shouldn't expect anything like the huge % increases you see since this is a lateral move and I wouldn't be doing tax anymore.

My last day with Deloitte was a week ago - I signed several authorization forms allowing them to withhold from my final paycheck the 1/2 of my sign-on bonus I owe back for leaving in 1.5 years, sans some FICA taxes. Today, I received a barely coherent email saying, “due to some glitch, the loan amount wasn’t adjusted from pay-stub”... and asking me to wire transfer the amount to them. It’s to the point that if it wasn’t on the same thread as the original email, I would assume it’s a scam. Wtf?

Recently relocated to a new city (MCOL) from HCOL, got a big salary bump, was thinking about saving money and got a really cheap studio.

Should I pay 1.5X rent to get out here and get a nice place?

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
