EY1 - SF is where I interned at but I can try and go wherever. I had a great experience in SF (and live locally to SF) .. but the COL is just way too high for an associate with a family. I'm from up in WA originally, so I love the area, but don't know much about how the actual office is. Thanks!

It depends what you're doing. I go into my office 2-3 times a year, usually IT support, so...

OP - Take the job closer to home, you will have a better work life balance, also if your job is anything like mine has been the past 10 years, unless you find a stellar home client - your home office is just your base, you fly all over from there.

You'll be working for about 2 main clients and will be networking with the same teams and people. I always think liking the people you work with is more important so give it a try. If you don't like it, network and get onto bay area projects.

My best friend is an immigrant. She has lived in the USA for ten years now and has a great career. However she says america is very lonely. Her fellow immigrant friends from different countries also say this. She says culture here is friendly but distant and ppl are too wrapped up in their home life and less so in their social life. She misses daily socializing that was a norm in her home country. I’ve lived here all my life so can’t judge but curious as to whether other immigrants here agree

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?

Perpetually an intern... working at the same company for 1.5+ years and easily doing the work of a junior creative, & taking the heat off my CDs daily; sometimes I’m the only AD on big jobs. I’m not making a livable wage & I’ve undercut my soul, free time, and financial stability with no end in sight. My teammates always really appreciate my hustle and insights. It makes me wonder what else I could possibly do. Put on more make up? Start poppin adderal? I’m joking... but what would you do?

Someone could write a thesis paper on toxic masculinity and rape culture based solely off data gathered from the posts in this bowl. I knew it was bad, but hearing all these stories (and worse -- how the OP is often unsure if she should be upset about whatever incident) makes my skin crawl! Silver lining is seeing so many women affirm and validate other women's experiences and remind them they don't need to tolerate behavior like this.
