I have read many posts here regarding recommendation on places to live. I don't see anyone mentioning the east side- Pasadena, San Gabriel etc. Why these areas are not recommended?
Hi everyone! I’m switching internally to my company’s LA office (from Boston). I only need to be in the office 1 or 2x per week and am toying around with the idea of living in San Diego and commuting up that one day. It’s likely be a 2.5hr drive or so each way, which seems like a lot. Can anyone speak to whether or not I’d go insane with that setup or if there are ways to make it more tolerable? I just have more family / friends in SD and would prefer to live there if possible :) thank you!!

I’ve been at EY for about 6 years and I am now applying for strategy roles. I know it’s competitive but things aren’t really going my way. I am getting the roles I am least interested and not the ones I really want. This is more of a rant, because I know the only way to get out of my situation is to keep trying. I am so drained and never been depressed before but I think I am starting to get there because of how exhausted looking for a job is 🥴🥴🥺🥺🥺🥺 Any success stories to get some motivation?

Just here to laugh at all of the insecure overachievers that exist at the high ranks of this industry. PSA to all of you Partners and those aspiring to become one: chill out. Your neuroticism is hurting your health and your marriage.
I accepted a job from a place my friend works. She got me in and I'd be dropping a title level but making the same $ as my previous role. I accept and 1 day later my #1 on the list came through. better title, pay and benefits. The first company is stoked to have me and everyone is nice. I'm sure on the culture. I reached out to company 2 the week before I accepted this offer and they weren't ready, but now they are. They seem great, but so does everyone when you meet them. What do I do?
