Is it mandatory to stay in the city you assigned to? I talked to the recruiter, she said EY expect everybody to be in the city in September. Even though your project is 100% remote, do you need to? I got no relocation package so I have to think about this.

Depends on your practice / project. If you get a project that's local and they want people on site, if you're based in (for example) New York but actually live in Philadelphia, technically there would be no hotel reimbursement and you would need to commute each day. Also, if there's an event in the office that's mandatory in person (practice all hands for example), same would apply, where are your transportation/lodging would not be covered. Other than that, you're probably good to be in another location.

Nobody here will know for sure, but if/when the time comes for you to be on-site you could be met with some challenges. Non-reimbursed commute costs. Challenges expensing travel from your current city that is not your actual “home city”. Where your income is taxed. Etc. Once a problem arises it will rise up to the partners in your group, and make a negative impression.

Thanks, I plan to move after my lease end anyway. My project is 100% remote. Do you think taxe wise gonna become problem? EY can withhold my tax in one place and I can file my tax for both work's state and resident's state on my own anyway.
