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.

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.

H1B transfer question. You get an offer from a new employer who wants to do the transfer. How soon can you start working for the new employer? Do you have to wait for anything to get approved or can you start working for the new employer as you wait for approvals? Theres a gap of 2-3 weeks in between old job and new job. Sorry about the lack of proper terminology above.

Currently a PhD at a M7. Veteran, and obviously used to be at EY. Currently in qualifying phase and starting to looking to post-PhD life. How do the firms differ in how they treat advanced degrees (ie stick to PhD area or are you a generalist)? How do federal vs commercial practices differ when recruiting advanced degrees? I recognize that there might be a pay differential (pay isn’t important, I don’t want to go back to B4 due to tax/consulting dichotomy), just would be great to be federal.
