Ha. Low salaries? Just not a lot of HQs there.

For FSO, work is led by CA and the West team. I think there are some local teams but not in FSO

Super small offices

I looked at moving to Hawaii in Assurance. I lived there previously for about six years. The public accounting market there is dominated by Japanese firms, so slim pickings for mainland hires. Was able to secure an interview and eventually an offer. At the time, I was an A3 with PwC. The offer was as an S1 for a regional firm, salary was $65k. This was in 2014. I turned it down, but you could live okay in that there. A nice 1BR apartment in Honolulu is about $1,500/mo. A decent townhouse in Aiea or Pearl City is about $2,000. So not easy living, but no worse than other high COL markets. Pre-req contingency kn the offer was that I learned Japanese with the first two years of employment
