Check out Fairmount. Within walking distance to down town. Parking is generally affordable. I’ve been there for 5 years and love it.

Queen Village, Bella Vista? And Graduate Hospital. Or down to Italian Market are are all great for younger vide and lifestyle. Easy access to 95. You want to avoid the West side of the city for construction and traffic these days

Good to know. Will check these areas out

West philly close to the highway could be really convenient, especially with more abundant parking compared to south philly.

I've lived in West Philly for the last 9 years and love it here. That said, I'd be leery about commuting to Delaware everyday from here. 76 to 95 is essentially your only way down, unless you want to find all the back roads, and 76 east bound is less likely to be boxed up than west but still can be dicey.

Have been told society hill and queen village. Anywhere else?

With so many people reportedly leaving consulting, I’m wondering how common is it to leave for less TC? MBB comp $200k+ at 27. Do most people get increases above that or just go to jobs sitting at $150k but that “have better WLB”? *Not looking to include those that switch to industries with intentional disregard about comp (eg public sector, charity, teaching etc).

Which one is better in terms of career growth, job security, hikes and wlb. 1- PWC India - kolkata location (hometown) 2- Accenture - Bangalore (relocation not an issue) Fixed and joining bonus is same.
