True! Been milling about for an hour and a half, had a few conversations but everyone seems to be in their own pods, and almost nobody in Advisory. After a while, I just needed to sit down.

SA1 I almost never go to the office because there’s nobody in my group there. Everyone I work with is remote or on site. It’s nice when I’m on site and feel like part of a team, but rarely-never is my team based out of my home office. I know it goes with the territory being a consultant. I just sometimes miss having regular coworker-friends like I did in industry.

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
