Agreed. I spend my time in LA and NY and I don’t regret it at all.

I hear Tennessee is pretty cheap, and good bbq

Do you have a family? In your 20s it makes much more sense to be in NYC than in your 30s with kids. I moved from Chicago to a low COL city when my kids got to school age

Everyone talks about lack of WLB at MBB. For those 1st or 2nd year post MBA, how is your day specifically structured? At my current job I work 12 hour days but outside of core team meetings I have autonomy to decide when to get my work done- meaning I can go to dinner with friends or go to the gym in the evening fairly easily.

Been working on mostly (about 70%) public sector policy and strategy at Big 4 for most of my career. Often go up against MBB on RFPs and have a decent win rate. Would I be too senior to come in as a lateral hire? I guess it’s all about client networks at this level, and being government, it’s locationally dependent - so which markets have need?

It’s been nearly 7 years since I’ve interviewed. Came to my firm right out of college. Getting back into it after all this time.

I hate to complain but it seems like a big time commitment, especially since nothing is guaranteed. I also understand it’s my choice to put myself thru the misery 😬 - just looking for some insight on what you’ve experienced.
