For folks who get a company phone, do you keep two separate phones - one for perosnal and one for professional use? At my current company, I just file an expense for my monthly cell phone bill, so I keep my own phone and use it for both work and personal use.

Has anyone moved from a H/MCOL city to a small town or rural area? Any regrets in regards to career progression, networking, or lack thereof? I'm thinking of making the move this winter in order to cut my housing expense by more than half and to put my daughter in better Catholic school. My employer doesn't care where we live so long as we can get to an airport. I grew up in a small town, so it wouldn't be a shock to me, just worried about how it may affect my career trajectory.
Me and my husband have about 70k saved. Our monthly expense is around 2k . No debts. Monthly income is around 13k. Is buying a house worth 1 million too risky ?
Is it okay to apply for another role with a company when already in interview process? Finished onsite for a FAANG role and recruiter mentioned I had positive feedback, but they are interviewing other folks before deciding and might take another couple of weeks.

We have sales people in Canada and the US, the Canadians make 150K CAD and down here it’s 150K USD, the Canadians argue they should be making 30% more than the US colleagues to be equal bc of the exchange! I explain the salary is dependent on the market data for them in Canada, WHERE THEY LIVE, and you can’t compare it to the US employees and the market data down here. Overall they are both in the 75th% for total comp. for their industry. Am I wrong?

One year out from applying and wondering if it makes sense to "start" applications at my target schools so I can get a feel for the types of questions. Is this a good practice, or could it appear like I didn't fully "commit" and come back to bite me when I actually do apply?
