BCG NAMR has cut expensing for all consultants irrespective of hour or length of work day (if we work at home, no expensing - which applies to almost all cases). No weekly or daily stipend. How have other MBB/consulting firms managed expensing/perks in Covid?

Anyone know of any production/pm openings in Atlanta? Just got laid off by JWT Atlanta on Thursday, effective Friday so trying to swim (fast) after getting thrown into the deep end. Thanks!
My brother and I are considering investing in a vacation mountain house. Thinking is that our budget is around $400K, 10% down, approx a $2K/mo loan payment. My wife and I would go in 66%. And my brother would go in 34%, since I make a higher income than him. This would serve as both a weekend getaway for us, and ideally an Airbnb rental when we are not using it. Any advice here such as: sources we should read up on, if we should start an LLC to buy this property, any other considerations?
I got laid off. Final day is end of December. I already have offers lined up in consulting but want to go into industry. Risk unemployment for what I want or just take the consulting role?
