I got a phone call from a firm I turned down 2 years ago, just wondering if I would be interested again. Only turned them down due to distance from home, but they are fully remote now, would need to come in every once in a while for client things. Crazy to even consider it? Move from BDO to a regional firm. Owner and staff was great, he said, name your price. Need some insight, thanks!

It sounds like you’d be crazy to not consider it. Seems like a good deal.

Why not?

Very happy at BDO, but I miss the client interaction, which I would get at this firm.

Give them your top number and if they say yes, then all should be good. But you should do your diligence and make sure all things remained relatively the same if not better at the firm than when you interviewed 2 years ago

Partners: Do you recognize the sacrifices juniors make? (Not at all critiquing. Just curious if you think about the effects of your decisions or whether you realize that this is simply not an analysis one can do given the needs of the project, for example. Also don’t mean to victimize juniors. Just too many uniform experiences suggesting juniors are seen as a backstop to all inefficiencies that roll down hill).

Working in my office used to be my primary source of work outfit inspiration but since working remote staying aware of what styles are in is nearly impossible. I live in a smallish town, so going out doesn't help fill in that awareness gap.

I'd also be interested in brands people follow.
