We will be expanding to the US next year. Keeping in mind we are deals focused, where do you think we should have our first 3 offices?

Go to New York, Dallas and Chicago. Just leave San Francisco alone. It's way too crowded and nobody can afford a house :)

Unpopular Opinion: Baltimore. Plenty of talent from the DC area, without the DC prices.

Why not virtual? I willl gladly work for sane ppl from anywhere. Have RV can drive up to nearest airport. Unlike the UK no culture here to clock in out of a bricks and mortar place.

Look into growing markets instead of overpriced metro areas where middle class can’t afford housing anymore. People and companies are leaving those areas for good. Charlotte, NC for example has a lot of opportunities in banking mergers.

Diversify by having offices in major metros like NYC or DC and growing markets like RTP (Raleigh) NC. I may be biased to my hometown though.. 😊

Go off the beaten path a bit. Charlotte, Austin, Salt Lake, all more affordable, reasonably located cities.

I would not say Austin is more affordable. Nor has it been able to keep up with all the growth and incoming population

NYC, Chicago, Dallas, LA would be the top 4

When moving from Deloitte US to Deloitte Canada, are we still expected to return the sign-on bonus? If yes, then is it fair to expect a sign-on from D Canada since it is a “different firm"?

I really liked when D started Loop feedback. The way how the manager on the project behaved totally changed otherwise he would crack jokes on me in front of everyone and I didn't say anything back to him because year end was in his hands but this Loop feedback was a big relief and all of a sudden junior practitioners also got power and definitely I saw a change in behaviour in the manager from the same day.

Just stopped breastfeeding at 7 months. Low supply, baby is biting my nipples, etc so seemed like the best thing to do. But it made me extremely sad and emotional, as if I lost a bond with my baby. I want to restart but I’m afraid of the bites. Is it normal to feel this emotional, has anyone experienced something similar?
