I’m interviewing for a role that is open to both remote and in-person (when it’s safe) work. Should I give salary expectations based on cost of living in the city where the office is located or based on where I’d live working remotely? Cost of living in the office location is a lot higher than where I’d live but since they are also considering in-person candidates, I know the budget is there.

How do I move forward? I started in IT audit and hated it, moved to tech consulting within my firm. Still do not enjoy the work at the firm, even in the new group. Not much feels different for me. Previously I was very interested in cyber, and was up skilling in relevant areas for cyber. However, I’ve recently lost my motivation to study for cyber. I know I want to leave my current role, but I don’t know what for. I feel like I have 0 value creating skills from my previous experiences to date.
Amex corporate green card or CSR? I’m not seeing many benefits to the Amex and I’m wondering whether I should just stop paying the annual fee and apply for CSR instead and get reimbursed for business expenses from that card. Considering I can only put business reimbursable expenses on the Amex, it’s not accumulating points very fast. Would I be better off consolidating my points on CSR? Amex platinum doesn’t seem like the right move for me right now.
Am close to making Partner at my firm (T2 Strategy shop) but worries because I see many peers stagnate at my level for 4-6 years (I’m in Yr 2) and COVID crashes the pipeline (con’t)....

So these being fired for low utilization posts are freaking me out. Any EY 🐠 hear anything like this for this performance year yet? Is that automatically considered if you get below a 3?
What is KPMG's parental leave policy for partners versus employees (MDs and below)? Trying to plan life and figure out if it makes a difference to have a child before or after one makes partner in terms of parental leave benefits. Thanks!
MBA or not? Considering getting an MBA but the $200k debt is preventing me from immediately saying yes. I have about 65K in student loans from undergrad and a non MBA masters. 260K in loans sounds bad
I'm moving to Jersey City from West coast and considering to move my home office to Deloitte NYC. For tax purposes how much difference would it make to be tagged to Jersey City office? My preference would be to go to NYC office once in a while but how's the Jersey City Deloitte office like?
If a recruiter asks for your resume when do you send it? I’ve heard some send it immediately, others wait until they know about the specific position, still others even later? I’m not sure when is best and would appreciate thoughts as to when and why!
