Consulting

Senior Associate here - getting recruited for a director level industry role. Because of CoL, I would be at about 2.5x - 2.75x salary in the new role. It also means moving from Boston to Iowa. (Cont.)

You couldn’t pay me enough money to live in the middle of nowhere, especially Iowa, but that’s just me personally. Everyone has different lifestyle wants/needs so it depends on yours.

To each their own! I wouldn’t do it because I know I wouldn’t be happy there - money isn’t everything

Well, it's an industry role so yeah, it would be "permanent". I could do it for a few years and ricochet back into consulting or another industry role in a better city.
