If you’re with for EY, I wouldn’t recommend going that far to the east. If you’re with any of the other B4, GT or BDO, Lakewood/White Rock is great. Good proximity to downtown, Deep Ellum, Lower Greenville while managing to be a little more lowkey. I’m maybe 5 mins down the road from those buildings; Bluffs of Lakewood would be my recommendation. Happy to answer any questions you may have about the area!

I live a little closer towards downtown on Gaston, my commute to KPMG is about 10-15 mins; if I worked at BDO, my commute over to Plaza of the Americas would look similar. Drive down Gaston and it’ll put you right into downtown, more or less. Personally I enjoy the fact that I can drive into the office without taking the highway. Based on the area/buildings you’re considering, I’d tack another 5 minutes into those figures. As far as other recommendations go, Winstead at White Rock, is a nice building. Tension at White Rock is also a solid option. I’m pretty sure there’s another few buildings around there that are in various phases of construction to recently open.

My GF lived at Tenison at the lake - great apartments for a decent price. I think she was paying 1300 for a 900 sq ft apartment. The location was nice for living - that area of town is not usually crowded, you have pretty easy access to the lake and the Lakewood area (great restaurants, nicer shopping centers). It's not so great for a commute, I-30 can be a rough drive even if it is only 3 miles away from downtown. The apartment itself was nice, I really liked it. I can't speak to management or anything of that nature. However, I know recently they had some issues with the water system and electricity (a storm in the spring rolled through and knocked out power in all east dallas). And its decently safe, not the safest area in Dallas but also not bad. Let me know if you have specific questions OP

Thanks a bunch! Do you have any recommendations as far as other apartments? I’ll be working downtown so I’m looking into an easier commute and also a safe neighborhood since I have a dog. My budget is to stay under $1300

I would look at some areas along I75 highway - there are some nice places, maybe you can find something below $1300. I live in the Victory park area (where EY is) and I pay about $1300. The victory park area is pretty safe since it is a little less crowded and the sports arena is here. Camden apartments may be pretty affordable. Plus it has been growing lately, so there are new restaurants/shops popping up. There are also some places in Uptown - a place called Gallery at Turtle Creek I think is right around $1300.

I feel like some SMs are brainwashed by the client. One I am working with doesn't like people leaving or wfh or going to the home office. Dude I gotta go catch up on my PD work.

Had a job interview that went really well. I knew the hiring manager, and she emailed me after telling how much everyone enjoyed meeting me. But it’s taking forever to hear back. HR checks in occasionally telling me they’re still working on it and will get back to me with any next steps soon, but now I’m freaking out that something is wrong. I’ve never been on the hiring side though. What goes on behind the scenes that interviewers might not be aware of that could hold up the hiring process?

Anyone have generator recommendations? Are there any that aren’t obscenely loud? Moved to a northern state with lots of snow and have a baby arriving during winter. Thinking I’d like to get a backup generator to give me peace of mind.

I have an opportunity to move from an AmLaw 20 firm I am really enjoying to a top 5 firm that would essentially double my compensation. Very conflicted. Thoughts? Some important context (I regularly bill 2100 hours a year and am fine with it but this is kind of my ceiling for sanity. I am a dad of two and a husband and the only one currently making income, I don’t particularly care if I am ultimately a well-paid service partner or of counsel and I’m a white collar/comm lit associate (3rd year)

Question: The company that you are working for offers cloud managed services and has been approached by a potential client. What are some areas (or red flags) you would consider before responding to their RFP? ( I started putting together a response but would love to get your insights) Answer: 1) Understanding of current annual spending vs spending if they adopted our cloud services 2) Clients expected growth rate 3) Regulatory requirements depending on industry (medical, fed etc)
