pros: cheap, doesn’t get too cold

cons: small, less diverse people/offerings than larger cities

Any plans for BCG to open an office in Charlotte/ Raleigh. I know McK has a CLT office. Don’t think BCG or Bain does

CLT pros: growing fast and food scene is solid.
CLT cons: infrastructure not even close to keeping up with growth, and for that reason, I personally don't want anymore of you moving here. Haha

Live in Raleigh and love it 😊 D has an office here, but it’s mainly tax and audit (which I don’t belong to).
