Thanks for the info all! Surprised how competitive the process still is right now. But I think we’re narrowing in on Dedham, Canton, Westwood. Trying not to spend $1mm is tough in this town


I grew up in Canton. Loved growing up there!

Got kids? School zones were better in some neighboring burbs.


Very nice town — but agree with Alix. School system is not nearly as good as places like Westwood, Dover, and Needham that it shares borders w.


These ended up being our three options.


Legacy place in Dedham is alright I suppose


As an update threw an offer for a place in Milton 🥳


Thanks for the info and the update OP.
Yikes that's rough - good luck with the search!

Great town.

Anyone in BigLaw given critical feedback to a very difficult partner and experienced a successful outcome? For context, there’s a partner (in M&A) who gives cryptic instructions, expects way too much from lawyers, doesn’t like making calls on difficult decisions, is not responsive to clients, etc. The partner is a rainmaker. Is it worth giving this feedback and ask for things to change, or should I just leave lol?

Hey BOS sales pros: Career pivot Jan. of this year, pivoting —> roughly a decade of law enforcement (I also have prior military experience / multiple deployments for anyone in that realm) to outside facilities sales. I feel I was slightly misguided on Y1 OTE, and I find myself kicking myself to a degree for not targeting tech sales. Does anyone know of any Tech companies hiring? I have networked on LI, and applied to a few roles w/ an updated resume, with not much luck. Any leads?
