Moving to London spring 2023. Literally never been. ANY advice appreciated.

Looking at these areas based on research to rent in:

Herne hill
Elephant Yard

1 or 2 bedroom, budget ~3k per month. Zone 1 or 2. Need dog friendly with some green space (this has been hard), young professional area ideal. Likes drinking, going out, etc. Ideally walkable

Specific complex recommendations, or neighborhoods I’m not considering appreciated!!!

Landlord advice - my absentee landlady lives in Russia and is refusing to pay for emergency plumbing that I needed as my kitchen floor was flooded with gunk from the pipes (blockage in the pipes). I moved into the place ~6mo ago and the blockage was most likely due to issues preceding my stay here. The contract states that the landlord is responsible for emergency repairs - but she's just flat out refusing. What recourses do I have in this situation?



MBA at LBS 🇬🇧 or IESE 🇪🇸?

Hi all,

Got a bit of an odd request.

I'm a Project Manager at Sainsbury's based in Holborn and was wondering if anyone would be able to give me a tour of their London Big4 office?? I've never been in their office and I would like to visualise what I'm striving for. Willing to meet up for a coffee before hand or have an initial call. Coffee's on me!

I'm a former strategy consultant (left as an M), few years in industry now, with an M7 MBA. Currently live in a HCOL US city, and want to move back to London in the longer-term, but concerned about pay. Outside of consulting and finance, is it remotely feasible to get industry roles with £350k base? I'm on about $400k TC right now.


How’d you all manage during notice period? Do people in your teams who are leaving still slog it out? What’s the norm. Moving to a corp role soon. Tired of this consulting grind.
