I did. 9 hour surgery. 2 weeks off (no work) 1 extra week work from home then I was back on my normal schedule

Thanks for the response. This makes me feel better. I’ve been putting survey off for a year. I have a month coming up where I won’t need to travel and so I’m going to schedule this. I’m scared though. 9 hours is a long surgery 😱

If you’re in LCOL or MCOL, is your firm losing people to California firms offering remote work and California wages? I know some have left for Seiler; Citrin Cooperman; CohnReznick; Abbott, Stringham, and Lynch; Frank Rimerman; Green Hasson Janks. Just curious if it has affected your office at all and if you left for one of those firms, what is your experience so far?
