How likely is google to change its stance on returning to the office? I’m evaluating 2 offers right now - both are very similar (pay, job function, etc.) except google is in-office.

Google is obviously a better brand than my other offer, but I’m not sure if that is enough to make it worth it.

13 Partners leaving PwC to form a new company under Luke Sayers - called 'Sayers' ? Wow, does this mean there's more money to spread around at PwC ?

And to think, they called it Sayers ? Whilst some of these partners are going around calling themselves 'Founding Partners', they not only followed the leader, they couldn't even come up with an inventive name !

Perhaps they should all be called 'Following Partners'.
