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.

Without transparent salaries, clear reasons why people are paid what they are getting paid and getting rid of the adversarial negotiation process, how do we know if people are getting paid less for being POC, or a woman? Happy to hear any other suggestions to accurately eliminate discriminatory salary earnings by companies.
