If it’s 50k flat in NYC, don’t negotiate. By law that should qualify you for OT pay. Which as a junior, will be much more valuable than the flat 5k bump

Don’t get greedy. Just starting out school is best for you to look at which agency is going to take you to the next level - look for people who you can look up to and learn from. You have the rest of your life to make some cash. Look for the talent in your employer, not how deep their pockets are.

Agree with DD1. Learn as much as you can, thank your lucky stars you got a legit job right out of college, and congratulations! $50K is more than generous for first hire.

Unless youve got awards or another offer, I dont think you have leverage

i actually have a couple of awards and other job offers (smaller agencies tho)! how should I go about using those as leverage to negotiate?

And don’t forget not everything is salary. Overtime rate can be negotiated. Paid time off is usually more flexible. Work from home time. All on the table

After seeing a bunch of the posts on here about some of the exit opportunities people here have posted, I started applying a couple months ago.

I work in corp tax but can’t see myself doing this for the rest of my life, neither in PA nor in industry. Has anyone had experience successfully transitioning into another non tax role? If so, what role are you in now and any tips on how you were able to get out of your “tax brand”? Im depressed because i dont find joy in my position, but don’t want to risk quitting during this economic situation. I know MBA is an option but the pressure of “M7 or bust” is taking a toll on me.

Near my client I found this place called topchef that makes fresh meals. I pick up on Monday and microwave them until Thursday. Helps me portion control and it's better than the frozen meals at the grocery store since it has lower sodium and no preservatives. They are cooked fresh weekly. I put in my order every Thursday. They have a good menu online

Talking to a partner in Netherlands who is a Canadian and American expat. The chatter started with Covid and masks but I realized the Dutch people are so well behaved, mindful of their neighbors and understanding of their government. Why is America not like this? Why do we behave so boorish and uncultured in comparison? We can't even wear masks to the store, and the Dutch are back to normal life already.
