Any NYC MBB consultants - do you generally travel outside of Manhattan for work? Or are your projects within the city generally? If you can share example schedules for first year, that’d be great!

This is such a case by case basis you can't even guess. Two things will make you local (M-Th%s): 1) Local work (0-20%) 2) Remote work (0-20%) 1 and 2 are mutually exclusive, but their amounts vary so extensively you could spend 40% of your M-Ths in the city or none. If you find a partner/team that you like that focuses on lux fashion or banking, maybe up to 60-80%, but it's going to be pretty close to a flat distribution, regardless of firm, during your first year. I have friends at 80 and 0

I'm on the beach and bored

Probably 60-80% of consultants are staffed locally at any given time (so you might be local for 8 months then weekly travel for 4). That number is for NYC - other offices much lower Remote work doesn’t really exist for us

How will this be shifting post September?

I’m 30, with no kids, currently paying $540/mo for a whole life insurance policy through my advisor (family friend, mind you) at NWM. No debt, investing 2k a month into other more traditional investments (e.g., 401k, ira). I care less about the death benefit but I’ve been repeatedly reminded about the guaranteed RoR associated with the cash value - does this investment vehicle make sense to continuing with? TIA!
