Disadvantages of permanent remote role with good salary?

Nothing.. seriously nothing until you figure out that the work and salary balance is slowing going off to an intolerable level.

1. Very low interaction with people. 2. Less physical movement. 3. Overlap between personal and professional life. 4. Ultimately you'd think where would I spend all those money because I'm not going out much.

I personally love being full-time remote. I get to work on my own time and get things done without annoying coworkers distracting me. I think the interaction being lowered can be tough, but I personally am okay because I now have time I can spend with people I actually like and care about. The disadvantages are only disadvantages if you feel them to be IMO

I suppose it depends on how you feel about WFH. If you prefer face to face interaction in an office, then it might not be the job for you. Personally, I love the freedom of WFH, and I prefer to be away from people. Haha!

I mean just like the comment says above it definitely depends on what you find as a disadvantage. I would say for me it's been a blessing. I get to fill my life with the things that I have passion for. And yes lack of human communication could be a problem, but if you put in a little effort you can meet so many different people.

None if you ask me. I love WFH and you get to have a flexible schedule.

Does anyone here have experience working as a PM for a non-profit? I have an interview with one that I would love to be a part of. I can’t find much information online regarding salary expectations. I am willing to take a pay cut to join a non-profit I am passionate for. That being said - I’m trying to balance knowing it may be lower with not accepting a low-ball offer due to lack of information.

PwC I think our (up to) $20,000 referral bonus (for getting in a senior manager/director to the global mobility services group) seems to show more a sign of desperation especially as competitors offer $3,000-$4,000 for a senior manager referral bonus. What’s the deal? Have a certain number of that experience level been promised in the sale of the practice?

Currently working in tax consulting at a big4 considering making the switch to strat consulting since I have internship experience at an MBB or move to a stratops/ bizops role in tech. For context I have 2-3 years work experience and my goal is to have a somewhat decent WLB with an interesting team.

Raised in a low income family, I saw my mom work multiple min-wage jobs, live paycheck to paycheck, sit at the table balancing the checkbook, stressing, hiding the fact that she was crying,. My resulting work ethic and emphasis on career has given me a job I'm excited about daily, an ok salary ( a bit below market rate, yet beyond anything I ever imagined) and my NW has passed $800k. I am thankful daily and have everything I need, but I feel guilty and selfish around my parents and siblings.
