    Pros

    This job gave you the possibility to work your own schedule. I loved the endless possibilities to increase my end of season bonus.

    Cons

    It you so not like to be constantly busy the the position of tax specialist during the peak season is not the opportunity for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer the best possible updates and training to your staff. It is imperative to continue the training as the tax law continues to change.
