Hello Consulting moms, I was wondering if anyone moved States after COVID? I live in Virginia (15min from DC) and we’re thinking to move to Texas. Dallas or Austin not sure yet. Any recommendations/advice? My son will be starting Middle-school. 😩 Thank you so much!

I live in DFW and love it! I live in Plano specifically but there are lots of great places to live.

Thank you so much for your comment. I heard good things about Plano. I am currently looking at schools and all of activities that we currently do in Northern VA. ( Lacrosse travel team, soccer etc)

Would caution you to do a lot more research. Plano is really really different from Austin.

I lived in Austin and Plano. Plano is more like the bougie/straight laced suburbs in Austin in terms of vibe. There are quirky/“weird” areas in both Austin and Dallas (think Bishops Arts, East Dallas. Etc.). Those areas are just more transitional and schools aren’t as highly rated. Plano isn’t one of the quirky/weird areas that has an Austin vibe.

My organization has told that I need to come back into the office full time after I have been WFH (without issue) since last March. I have a 6 month old baby at home, and my bubble consists only of the people I live with. We don’t do anything, go anywhere unless absolutely essential, etc. my job is such that first responders are in and out of the office and the work building all the time, and plenty of them have caught (and passed on) covid to other individuals. Am I being overly dramatic-cont.

Have any of your law firms published a new or revised “remote work” policy - specifically what it might look like post Covid? We’ve had a lot of employees (in all peer groups) say they would like some type of flexibility to work at home going forward. We are trying to start a draft with some perimeters and look at all the pluses and minuses.

Just want to thank the people in this bowl for giving me advice on several posts awhile back post-COVID layoffs. Had taken on 2 other (senior) people’s jobs/duties and then successfully managed and executed 3 major projects, I finally asked my new boss (team lead) about a title change and I’m glad I did! It was definitely something he had not thought about but could see the clear reasoning behind it and was willing to go to HR to ask if it was possible.

Advice wanted: My firm lied about our raises this year. They said we’d match the other top 10 firms, and that was absolute BS. I’m having a hard time staying motivated. I’m doing senior level work without the title or pay. Fresh college grads are getting paid more than me. I’m already job searching, but I feel bad that I don’t have the same drive as I did before when I thought I would be receiving a proper raise. I learned my lesson. Any advice for a young professional?
