What is the best way to configure AD if using 1 central site of around 60
users and another site with 30 which the main traffic goes between. Then 8
satellite offices that connect to the central site.

Should we setup one large single domain that everyone logs into. Meaning
that remotes can talk to any dc that answers a request when logging on?

So everything is under mycompany.local or using sub domains for each site
such as location.mycompany.local at each site?

What would be the best way to configure this and what are the
advantages/disadvantages?
