Just got offered 60% to lateral transfer into a BB banks Innovation Strategy group. Would be insane not to accept right? Better wlb, benefits... Probably won't be VP for 2 years though.

I live in and absolutely love California. No other state compares in my mind (industry, career opportunities, salary, culture, diversity, food, weather, landscape, political inclination, etc). If I were to consider temporarily (2-3 years) moving to another state to accumulate more wealth on the way to FI, what states (specifically cities) would make me least miserable?

Apparently more than a few of my firm's associates moved to other states during COVID and are now quitting because we are coming back to the office. The wierd thing is that my office is quickly replacing those associates with other associates that moved here (a large secondary market) during COVID and refuse to go back to their (mostly NYC-based) firms. Is this churn happening at other firms too?

Anyone know the secret in getting an interview at McKinsey? I know potential hires typically get noticed at Deloitte through referrals and direct emails to the recruiter, but what about McKinsey?
