The opportunity: A CD opening at an amazing agency in Europe (I’m American). The dilemma: I’m 8 weeks pregnant. The visa process is time consuming and expensive and I will likely go on maternity leave shortly after arriving. Do I tell them? Or just see how it goes and then spring it on them? File under: Things men never have to think about.

Anyone have money management advice? I have a lot saved (no loans, got brother's old car, big CD from family that ends in a few months). I'm putting quite a bit into 401k with the remainder sent to a money market (supposedly high yield) account. It's an awesome problem to have, but I feel like I'm sitting on this money, doing nothing. I have no knowledge of stocks, but getting another CD seems wasteful. Only big purchase planned is an eventual new car, which I can easily buy.

What is included in the typical compensation package of a CD in the US (agency-side)? Do you usually have a yearly bonus, a car, office phone, or other benefits?

Advice desperately needed. I've been at my agency for 6 years and I have a one year old child. Work is going well since I returned 6 months ago after maternity leave, my boss likes me, has given me more responsibility and praises my work but he's basically told me I won't be promoted because the 2 CD slots above me are both filled. Staying would be comfortable and easy with the little one especially but I feel I'm never going to grow and progress if I don't move up so I feel I have no choice but to look elsewhere. What would you do?
