I moved down to DC and have been so happy about small City Life. go for it!

yup, i couldn't get anyone to uphold my NYC salary. I dropped $10K and am pretty mad about it. They all whine about being a smaller market / lower cost of living. I'd advise asking if the agency charges a lower rate to reflect that. Otherwise, the first year of living in DC can be hard -- it's a well known phenomenon. After that first year, you usually fall in with amazing people and can't imagine why you enjoyed life anywhere else. So it's worth the wait! DM me if you want to know more 😊

I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?

Are there any good ways to make money outside of a typical career job? I’ve tried audit and currently in advisory. The job just makes me depressed, and I’m thinking the accounting space just isn’t for me. My husband works, so I don’t have to worry with medical benefits etc if I quit. We don’t have kids yet so I need something to keep me busy, and I would like to still have an income and make decent money. Any ideas?

Junior working with ex v5 senior in M&A. He consistently asks me to turn major deliverables at the worst hours, think 10 pm Friday/Sat/Sun night “tonight” or “by tomorrow morning” even when there is no closing date in sight. When I push back he says my behavior is unacceptable. The times when I have been able to actually meet his expectations and give him the deliverable for review, he will get back to me with comments at least a week later. Sick of these false deadlines.

Is audit experience mandatory for advisory in big 4? I applied EY FAAS but has been told by recruiter that audit experience is required. So they recommend me to go to audit team for two busy season then apply for FAAS. Can anyone let me know if It’s true? Also if I go to audit WAM. Is it going to limit my opportunities to only FS industry when I apply for advisory like one year later? I want to work on different industry clients in advisory in the future. Btw I do not have audit experience now.
