I’m currently at a boutique cybersecurity firm and was recently recommended to apply for a Manager role at PwC cyber risk. Whats the outlook for this path. Is Partner feasible? What’s expected at M1?

Anybody have any AA upgrade certificates expiring? Flying from DFW to BERLIN tomorrow on British Airways. I’m not an AA flyer but willing to trade United upgrades.
Those of you who live in LA, how expensive is it and how do you like it there? I keep hearing the cost of living is extremely high there. Wondering if it’s worth it to make a move there.
