Federal, Government, and Public Sector

Interested in Federal/Aerospace and Defense consulting, but would like to move to NYC from DC. Has anyone made this move and been able to stay in federal/defense? Would appreciate any thoughts!

Federal “consulting” and A&D consulting are two very different things

Yeah there’s little to no Aerospace work in NYC. Fed as well but there’s always start or local.

I’m no expert in this industry but my father has been doing federal aerospace since the 80s and he’s never gone to NYC for anything job related. He is in DC and travels west almost exclusively

Had a colleague who made herself invaluable to a federal client. Was able to make the move to NYC and stay working on the same client remotely with some occasional travel back to DC for big meetings.

Yes if you move to federal, typically your opportunities for advancement are within the federal space. This is usually seen as a negative for most generalist consultants but it seems to be perfect in your case.

I am planning on making this move soon. In my case, I would be working remote 80% of the time from NYC and taking business trips to DC the other 20%. It will work.

You'll get paid DC wages and won't be able to afford NYC cost of living. NYC is financial services... You likely need to Target a company like Boeing of Lockheed Martin and travel 80-100%

EY H1B related question- does anybody know if EY does "bridge transfers"? Context: Got laid off from previous job and before I ran out of the 60 day grace period, transferred H1 to a small IT consulting firm but approval is pending. Wondering if EY will apply for a transfer even though the previous one is pending, I know it's completely legal and acceptable to do so (based on advice from multiple immigration lawyers). Has anyone been through the same situation? Continued in comments..

How are you handling onboarding of new hires right now? Has anyone made creative changes to your plans or encountered hiccups? For those that usually supply new hires gifts to employees on their first day, have you still been doing that? If so, how?!
