What is it really like for tax professionals who leave public accounting for “industry”/an internal tax department? Curious on pay diff, stress level, flexibility,etc in a general.

Left PA after eight years for a tax director position in a private company. 35% increase in pay/35% decrease in time. Little to no stress and it’s been nice to get home at 5:30 every day. Fewer PTO days but working far fewer hours. Can work from home occasionally but not really encouraged. On your own to make sure you’re keeping up with CPE and tax updates. It’s not hand fed to you like it is in PA. I’ll never make a partners salary but can make a nice living and still enjoy life outside of the office. Not all industry jobs are created equal though . Have to watch for the right opportunity.

Can I ask what your base salary was when you got that job? Just wondering what 8yrs exp in PA gets you at a private company tax director role.

Also curious to hear

Pay depends a lot on location, company type, & size.
Not on coasts looking at around 150-180k (160-200 at 9-10 years).

Companies differ. Some pay 160k base, but have fantastic insurance, great match, nice LTIP, & pay 25% cash + 25% equity bonuses regularly.

Hey Friends, need help!! I am a developer with 1.6 YoE, got placed on-campus (NIT), can code well in Java and Python, but want to move into an analyst type role as I am not sure if I can be a good 'developer'.
