Not nearly as resonant this year. Which, is odd, considering everything that happened. Still decent though!

Totally. Never a bad ad from them but maybe a missed opportunity to focus on searching for the future? Not sure, saw it on ABC after their ball dropped and just didn’t hit right.

Do you feel optimistic about the UK’s economic future?

I’m British, but left for the US in 2015 initially for a secondment but ended up staying. Dearly miss home, but with Brexit and shrinking of an already small market size, it’s unattractive from a professional stand point.

I could stomach a salary cut if I returned to the UK, but it seems like such a struggle unless you’re earning £250k+ HHI. Maybe it’s just a London thing. Maybe I’m too pessimistic.

I like my cushy job but would be willing to work harder at a better firm, but not if it means driving myself into the ground and giving up anything outside of work

Choosing between two offers right now and not sure what to do. Both places have solid reputations, option A’s maybe slightly better. I like the location of option A more and think it would open up more doors long term. Option B is also a good opportunity and maybe would be more satisfying short term. Option B offered more $ but hoping to leverage that to see if option A can match. Are there any other big things to think about that I’m missing?
