I believe this is more team/office specific than firms … the bigger issue here is with tax implications

like

McKinsey has a 20 day/year work abroad allowance. As long as you have work authorization (e.g., you’re citizen of the country or otherwise don’t need authorization), and it works for your team, you can work outside your country of employment for 20 working days (1 month) with no special arrangements. I’ve used this in the past to spend time with my family. I had a hard time getting staffed with a team that could accommodate my hours, but that meant that for two weeks I was “on the beach”as we call it here and enjoying time with my family unstaffed and getting paid.

Lol, Big 4 doesn't even have a proper budget to pay/retain their employees, let alone sponsor you abroad? Nope..

Almost all large firms allow this if you are very good, can fit to an international project, and there is no adverse tax implication. Your main problem is whether anything is selling in the geography you want that needs staffing from abroad. That is very much a longshot. You have a better chance for case-by-case discussion with your manager/partner nowadays if the engagement is 100% remote, but there is no guarantee of any work in country X for anyone at entry level unless you are actually based at an office in country X.

If your firm won't let you work outside the US btw, usually a regulatory implication w data. Are you aligned to government or sensitive data projects? There are also certain jurisdictions that are just inherently very tricky for this, eg tax residency in the UK kicks in at a fairly low threshold so a lot of firms avoid international staffing there unless there's a longer secondment.

But, if anyone actually knows that pay range in Canada, please let me know.

Two years ago, I had an affair with a married man, a partner at a big 4 who was really sweet (and obviously toxic). Met at a bar in April … it was off and on until November (plus one night in December that ended very badly). I was in an awful place mentally and emotionally in my life, and sort of just blew up my life. I even quit my job (no, we didn’t work together), no notice, couldn’t get out of bed…..
