For the last time: D👏🏼 DOES 👏🏼NOT👏🏼 DO 👏🏼COLA👏🏼


Considering 80% travel, I resent paying a mortgage on a home in an expensive city I don't plan to retire in just so I can make face at the office on Fridays.


Many people unofficially move and stay out of their originating office. I have not heard of lowering salaries for moves to lower CoL


What's the point of moving. Wouldn't you be traveling anyway?


I am in the Rosslyn office and transferring to NYC. I got a bump in salary. Assuming that was the cost center change and not a COLA allowance then.


This will be a big factor in me leaving for industry after a couple of years. If I'm going to be paying this much for housing here I'd like to enjoy it. Otherwise I'd like to buy where I plan to retire.


No COLA at D


This is good news. Was worried my raises would take a hit

What school in Detroit? How attached are you?

That is all.
