I'd choose DC over NYC for living especially long term, but I do love visiting NYC. I can't think of much I can do there that I can't do in DC, besides visiting specific landmarks and buying better knockoffs. You probably just need more friends down here to show you a good time😊

Im in niche practice area at Big4 (2 YOE)x of which law firms have the practice group. I’m in my late 20s, no kids, not married, significant student debt. The WLB I’ve had is fantastic, and most of my friends are miserable in BigLaw. But obviously the money coming with a lateral opportunity is staring at me, and given my student debt and no family of my own, perhaps it’s worth. Among the money move and grinding out and coming back to Big4 at higher level later? Any insight is appreciated. TIA!

Hi. I am desperate to change jobs. I have to offer in hands: Deloitte Hyderbad on a contract basis with 15% hike and KPMG Bangalore with 25% hike. I like Deloitte as a brand better.
None of of these two companies are willing to offer more saying that they have a tight budget.

Which one should I take? Please help me decide.
