Plat isn’t worth it unless you’re a road warrior, regardless of fee.

Yeah definitely is. SUB of 100-125k plus the promo earning rates basically make it a no brainer for the first year at least. Year 2 you will need to decide if it makes financial sense for you to keep but call Amex in advance in hopes of a retention offer

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.

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary.
