Wait, or try to get a bolt and use the recall as a negotiation tactic

Bolts have recall out to replace all batteries, ever, from 2017-2022. Will take years to complete. In mean time, you can only charge to 90% and must recharge quickly if you go below 20%. Many owners are unhappy and may sell below prior market value. If you only need 150 mile range total, maybe not a huge deal. Then you’ll get a brand new battery (250 mile range) and battery 8 yr warranty, at some point in next couple years, and the car will go up in value again.

Hi all,
I was reached out to yesterday by a recruiter from BCG about a Talent Manager role.

I speak with the recruiter next week to discuss it and potentially moving forward.

Hello there! I currently work in billing at a medical office. I got my Bachelors in Psychology a few years ago but I couldn’t find a position that seemed like a good option for me that was well paying and fulfilling. I tried working as a tech at an Applied Behavior Analysis clinic but it wasn’t a good fit. I’m hesitant to try case management or social work because I worry I won’t like it but I want to use my degree in Psychology. Does anyone have any ideas for me?

While I understand most people in deals/FDD aim to exit to industries like FP&A, Corpdev, and even IB/PE, I occasionally see people who end up exiting to accounting focused roles (eg controller, technical accounting, financial reporting), which I've also been reached out for by recruiters (Currently in Big4 FDD).
Is it a limiting move from a career/pay progression to take these exits? Any pros/cons? Thanks.


I am feeling down. I make $113k and my retirement savings rate is 20%. The amount of money that hits my bank account every month is $4100. I bought a $230k house, which I thought was reasonable for my income. My mortgage is $1850 and my utilities are like $300/month. So my housing cost is like 50% of my take home. Then when shit breaks, (water heater, roof etc.) It's like I can't get ahead. I drive a cheap car, I don't go out to restaurants,at all but life just seems to cost more than $2k/month.


Failure is like digging; you must keep digging to find the treasure.

Our perspective has tremendous power. Use it to dig. Here's how:

- Accept the present situation first before deciding what to do. You can’t change the failure, but you can find your next steps from it.
- You can’t change others, but you have absolute power over yourself. That’s more than enough.
- Be intentional about the next attempt.
- See what others did and how you can apply it to your endeavor.

There’s multiple reasons most likely - apt complex is like fort knox, lockers may be hard to find, package room moved recently, lockers were implemented a couple months ago, not enough signage, poor coordination between my complex and couriers. Anyways after literally having 8 packages go missing in 2 weeks, i
