Seeking offer/comp advice: I could use help in determining if my expectations are unrealistic or if I’m getting undercut in negotiations. 6.5-7 YoE in IR/BD/relationship mgmt. Is $250-275 all-in a fair ask for Sr. Associate? I’m being quoted a number way lower ($200k max; bos/nyc)

Hi all, does anyone know what a second year tax manager with a JD/LLM would make at a Big4 in a non-NYC HCOL market (LA/SF/DC/Bos)? Is the number higher if the person laterals in (as opposed to starting at the same Big4)?

Suggestions on a town that is resonably close to the Boston Airport and still affordable (under $700k for a single family home), also have a kid so schools are eventually going to be important. Suggestions?? Resonably close to the airport to me is an hour or less of car/commuter ride. I am thinking we may have to travel at some scale over the next year and beyond hence the proximity to Bos Logan is important.

Been awhile since I travelled so I’m not sure what the airports are like anymore. Flying out of DCA to BOS with a 645am door close. What time should I arrive? It’s myself, wife, 5 year old and infant in lap (the worstttt). We have CLEAR and TSA Precheck. What time should we arrive to DCA if boarding starts at 6?

I started my first account job in Feb. As a junior account person, do you think I would be hindering my growth if I decide to stay remote? Right now, my team is split across BOS and NY, but I can’t wrap my head around the cost of living in those cities. I’m not opposed to being in those cities for the job opportunities, but I just don’t think I could afford to do so. And truthfully, I don’t know if I want to.

Would like additional thoughts. 27M soon to be 28. Moved to Chicago from LA ~3 yrs ago. Debating if it’s worth exploring NYC/BOS or if I should go back west. Reasons for wanting to leave Chi due to culture fit. I find it hard to relate to ppl here of all ethnicities. More so, I find it interesting that I’ve been “discriminated” against by Asian Ams out here bc of my tattoos and “Cali Asians are trashy and ghetto”. I don’t think NYC/BOS will have the same issues but wanted more opinions. Thanks!

I’m in a bos/nyc LDR with my bf of 1.5 years. Covid has made things difficult as he’s extremely cautious about travel and is much more ok with virtual hangouts than I am. He’s also thriving during quarantine with new hobbies/free time while I’ve been struggling missing him and feeling like a downer. We both have flexible WFH jobs, but feel it’s too soon to move-in together. I’m really struggling with toughing it out given there’s no end in sight. Any tips for finding clarity?

They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
