I have family and Oregon and would love to move there! Portland is a really cool city, much more relaxed than East coast. It IS very white though-I was a bit surprised that’s it’s not super diverse despite being super liberal (eastern Oregon is a diff story).

Are you white? Then go for it! Otherwise...nah.

If my family didn’t live in Michigan, I would 100% live in Portland. I went one time for a week and absolutely fell in love with the city. I get the vibe that it’s super family friendly and obviously very progressive. Not sure about quality of schools.

Live in Chicago now, family all across the USA. I grew up in East Coast and think I'm done with East Coast

Portland has one of the best food scenes! 😋

Just want to vent… am I the only person who doesn’t want to stay WFH full time forever? Starting my career virtually hasn’t necessarily been bad, I just feel really disconnected from my team and partner. It’s hard to get to know people casually over teams. Living in my 600 sqft apartment with my boyfriend working in the other room is also tough. It feels like my world is smaller. I just feel like I’m sorta missing out on something.

Fairly confident I’ll get an in industry offer this week! Mixed feelings though... Main reason for leaving is WFH consulting just simply isn’t enjoyable. Getting harder for me to see the value in grinding for consulting. Is this short term thinking off? Do people think weathering this storm will give potential raises / promotions soon? I just don’t see consulting going back to what it use to be for ~2 years. I’m a consultant level going for promotion to manager.

How do you have the "I deserve a raise" conversation? Especially when you asked for a certain amount upon signing, and that amount was not initially met but was to be reviewed after the 1st Yr.?

Starting a discussion about a promotion and pu bump. I have done was asked by my old boss and had an underperforming direct report. I still accomplished my tasks and helped our corporate team particularly with data analysis for most of last year, and working with a new boss. My new boss seems hesitant about promoting another person in my team. How can I make a strong case without making the aforementioned barriers seems like excuses?
