It increases opportunities but the only thing that actually increase diversity is hiring and retention

I think it can and it should. However, not everyone has the best broadband in their neighborhoods.

This! I live in the wealthiest county in my state but it’s south of the major city and my neighborhood doesn’t have fiber internet. I constantly have to excuse my poor video or turn it off. Especially with kids doing school from home and everyone WFH some days it’s really rough. I can’t imagine what people in even less “desirable” neighborhoods do. We are looking to make a move at the end of summer and this is one of our biggest considerations.

The same people are recruiting and hiring, so no it does not.

I think it does. My agency is located in Seattle, the whitest place in America. Remote allows talent to work there without feeling the cultural isolation of the city

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

I spoke to a Senior Manager earlier today and she told me they are looking to hire experienced and qualified candidates who have the below requirements: 1) Bachelor’s degree 2) CPA certification 3) 3-7 years of Accounting or Audit experience 100% remote. Then, post COVID traveling will vary. Please, if you meet the above requirements or know someone who does and is interested in joining Deloitte send me a private message. I will have you send your resume and I will forward to Senior Manager.

I have a salary range in mind for a new role based on online research and target increase from my comp now. But my research shows the data points are for salaries in HCOL areas. Do I need to adjust what I ask for if it’s a remote role and I’m not in HCOL city? Don’t want to overshoot and lose a great opportunity.

Back on the market and I’m coming to find two things: 1. Less desirable agencies are the ones who want people back on-site soon, with no wiggle room for remote work. 2. These same agencies want to pay salaries based on COL in the city where the agency is based even if you’re working/living from another market in the interim. Example: Midwest based agency paying Midwest salaries to folks living in places like NY, SF, LA. 🧐🧐🧐🧐
