      Pros

      In general, the company does good work. Excellent reputation based on solid history with millions of clients. Well-meaning management. Copious training for tax pros.

      Cons

      Tax associates are ridiculously underpaid -- not much above minimum wage for work that deals intimately with people's sensitive financial information, and that requires a semester of study, a license in some states, and 30 hours of CEUs each year. Quality of training varies wildly.

      I’m making in the low $200s, but I’m getting RSUs for the first time in my career, and my family is looking to buy our first house. So far we’ve just used H&R Block online to file our taxes. I’m wondering if it would be helpful to A) start working with a Financial/Tax planner and/or B) start having an actual person do our taxes. For context, 3 years ago I was making $137 with no bonuses or stock units, so just trying to figure out how to make the best financial choices.
