Just started a new role and I received the standard laptop, monitor and keyboard/mouse which I’m grateful for but have friends who also made moves and have received stipends for home office upgrades, health + wellness stipends, and reimbursements for phone + Internet. Made me curious what other agencies are doing.

I am upset about racial injustice. I am upset about police brutality. I am upset that rioters are creating more victims and stealing attention. I support BLM. I support protesters (protested myself). I support the police. All of these things are true, they are not mutually exclusive and do not diminish each other. We will all be better off if we focus on what brings us together as opposed to looking for things to drive us apart.

Potential opp to jump from client-facing risk consulting role at Big 4 to internal risk consulting role at MBB.
I like client facing work - new projects, travel etc. - but new role would likely be better hours and more pay (20-30%). Probably wouldn’t be long term either, possible to move to client facing at MBB?
Would you jump?
