Does anyone have knowledge of the financial crimes practice in KPMG? I am interviewing for a position to move there from a current forensics position. The KPMG recruiter explained that its an extremely small practice and I wouldn't be doing a lot of the "grunt" work any more like clearing alerts in AML etc. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on what this practice really does? Online info is not that descriptive. Also, is the 80-100 percent travel really true or is a bit less?

Might be a loaded question but How is the career culture like for a tech sales career? I understand that it would vary based on industries. I don’t mind the stressful nature of hitting quotas and actually would thrive with the stress.

Also I’m 25 now and was wondering if it’s too late to start a new career in tech sales….

Apologies if this has already been asked, and I understand the history/platform risk of hot wallets. The risk of total loss is quite low if spread among exchanges. I’m currently mining to my exchange wallet to snowball my holdings with compound interest, but have considered taking some risk off the table via cold storage in the past.
I feel like my husband wants to be a good partner but can’t multitask. He loves the baby and does have things in the house he “owns”. But inevitably after a few good weeks he slides on the things we share (laundry, cooking, taking care of the dogs). His work is busy and stressful and he is older than me. He is always tired (and has always been like this). I just get so angry because he acts like he needs to be so well rested but then I have to pick up the slack! I hate that he says (cont.)
