Easier the higher level you are. But also depends on your area and if we have an office or not.

I live 2.5 hours away from my office in a city where we don't have a consulting branch. Was difficult but managed to do it as an analyst

I'd be moving from one major city to another with Deloitte offices

It technically doesn't matter (if you aren't on a local project). Plenty of colleagues started in Chicago with me but like elsewhere now and are technically still aligned to chciago

I moved with no problem, but you may be in a different situation given that there is some reason they previously required you to live somewhere you didn't want to be?

Starting a new job and figuring out WFH desk set up. They gave me a laptop and $500 stipend for office furniture. I have a desk, chair, and iMac for myself. Trying to decide if I should get a second monitor on an arm for work, or if I should buy a new laptop for myself and a monitor I can plug each computer into at the start/end of work. I def want a big screen for personal use but it's tough to fit it all on one desk. What did you all do?

Like they mean well, but even when I try to tell them I do it for a reason they think I’m just being difficult - e.g. work in a team room with headphones on, have a physical to do list, have a bunch of tabs/docs open at one time, bring a second monitor, take regular short breaks etc.

That way, when we start a family, our 401k can grow well on its own in case I’m the main provider (she’ll work part time for a couple years while kids are young). Thoughts?
