Doesn't hurt to back-cut the second piece slightly, to make the joint less visible.

No, it should be a square cut. If you think about it a square cut is a coped joint on square stock

the inside corners of profiled trim should  be coped.   Square stock, no.

where it makes sense and is readily available, I glue and nail off that square stock to itself.  Then I place the assembled pc into the corner and nail it off.

I also blob some panel adhesive behind that corner for solid backing.  Nothing like an aggressive carpet installer to make a good trim job look bad.
