This gets blown out of proportion. Do a COL calc online to calibrate. But I hate to break it to you - DC is not a low COL area to begin with...

DC is not cheap at all. Top 5 COL in the US. You still come out on top, and build long term wealth with equity.

Lol OP you’re doubling your comp. The COL difference might only be 20-30% at most. This one is a no brainer financially

I think 150k is low for L4 Google S&O. Also, depending on where you live, you’d be spending around 50k/year on housing, groceries, etc. However, healthcare & food & gym is covered by google. Hope you’re ready for the daily commute 🤗

with 5 YOE, this is terrible. Deloitte managers in commercial makes more than this as post MBA senior consultants make 130-140

Take that! The COL in Silicon Valley isn’t as expensive as you would think. Nice 1/1 apts will run $3200-$3600/month and 2/2 will run you about $1k more. COL calculators aren’t super accurate. Yes, your rent typically increases by the percentage that is given. However, your car payment, car insurance, health insurance, utilities, groceries, etc. don’t increase by that percentage. Plus, stonks!

A) Depends on the definition of “nice”. Finding a 1b/1b for $3200 in the Google zip code is a real steal. Not saying it’s impossible, but I’d get prepared to pay closer to 3600-4000. B) Everything will be a few percent more expensive due to the area, but more specifically due to the higher taxes you’ll be lying (at check out and on our checks) C) If you’re excited about the role, I’d take it. Worst case scenario, you change roles with the Google name on your resume (leaps and bounds better than Deloittes in the tech sector*) *External perception may not mirror actual work experience or employee quality, but the perception matters.

I have a behavioral and case study interview with Deloitte GPS next week. My experience has been in financial data and management with around 3.5 YOE. I haven’t had to do a case study for an interview before and was hoping to get any advice on how to practice for a public sector one.

Does anyone else have a vendetta against a specific company so bad that they interview with them and decline the job offer just to waste that company’s time? Do this once in a while with a specific company that treated me poorly on campus back in the day

Friends, I’m looking for a few good sources to help my clients *feel* how the COVID crisis is affecting the Latinx community, especially “less acculturated,” Spanish-dominant folks in the US. Could be a podcast episode, photojournalism, artwork, an op-Ed. I have lots of numbers and stats, but I need help finding something more evocative than hard-to-feel-real percentages. Much appreciated!

Anyone who left big 4 for industry, what was your experience like since leaving? About to put my notice in, but also afraid of the unknown and scared to make a change..
