I want to move to LA because I'm tired of the suburbs in a small town. Pros / cons? Bad idea?

Pros - everything cons - expensive

like

Very expensive, horrific traffic and crazy drivers. On top of that, small downtown that smells like piss and is infested with a legion of homeless people. Plenty of crime. Upside, easy to find great food, entertainment, bars museums etc etc. If you make good money, LA is fine. If you make less than 100k, it can be rough.

like

Pros: Babes everywhere
Cons: They don't want shit to do with you unless you're a millionaire or have a status.

When I worked in the LA office I lived in Los Feliz, took the subway to work (employer pays for your pass per CA law) and loved it. I still visit LA every month or so. Great restaurants, love the beach, skiing is not too far. I could give a shit about the traffic, I grew up there, you just deal with it and figure out alternate routes. ;-)

Has anyone been officially required to return to office on a full-time or part-time basis? I'm curious about what your return to office or work arrangement is currently, or what you've been hearing from others

How do you know when you’ve crossed the line of being “blunt”… where you’re too direct in a mean way? Related to work, but actually this is happening more in normal life… I’ll say something and then think that it might be too blunt that it’s mean, but it’s actually what I want and intend to say 🤷🏻‍♀️

For context: I’m upper 20s, have multiple degrees, multiracial, small Midwest “nice girl”, but have had lots of life experiences across the world.

I’m honestly so desperate to leave BIG4 right now. I’ve had offers at other big4 firms which I’m sure are all the same. I’m miserable every day and I really just want more work life balance.
