Alixpartners fishes - have you started traveling again? Do you foresee your travel requirements reducing post covid
How can I accelerate my path to FIRE? Currently making ~$5.2k/month after taxes and send money to the following: - $500 for expenses (living with parents during covid) - $2.7k to max 401k and IRA with mega backdoor contributions - $1.5k towards down payment savings in HYSA - $400 to brokerage account
Really sad knowing that it will be hard to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas this year due to COVID19...
Trying to buy a house. Didnt prequalify for mortgage loan from chase - their credit score requirements have become stringent because of covid. Mine is 680. They need 700 min. Any other banks that might have more lax reqs? Any experiences folks can share?
Update got fired: Based on previous post to pick up a Lower CTC (offer $$) or not I'm planning on taking a lower money job How's a response to my future hire a year later I got laid off due to covid. I picked up this opportunity to pay my bills (40% lower Money) So had to do this for a while
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
I was up for a June promotion and now am doing the work sans title due to COVID-19 - now with no promised promotion after 2 years as an AAE. Thoughts? Do I find another job elsewhere, or stick it out?
Good Evening My Fellow Christian Educators! I realize it is going to be challenging for me this year...with so many of my students performing below grade level expectations in ELA and MATH and also ensuring that all students follow the COVID Guidelines in the classroom. I still feel hopeful that God will bless me with the knowledge on how to effectively impact each one of those kids. Let's remember to keep all educators lifted in prayer this year. Have a wonderful school year!! God Bless All❤️
Anyone have any tips on conducting productions via zoom? We’re hiring small freelance crews in other countries bc covid travel is a no. Wondering what to expect. Will be conducting interviews.
Been getting huge waves of not wanting to work because I know I’m only in it for the money. Except that doesn’t even feel worth it anymore. Just started a new project that isn’t interesting, but is chargeable. Need some advice from fellow fishes. Oh, to add on, I had a vacation planned for Santorini earlier in April, but was cancelled due to COVID. 😭

If anyone is going from the East Bay to Yosemite tomorrow morning, please let me know. I would really appreciate it if I could get a ride 🙏🏼 Of course I’m splitting the cost of gas and can bring snacks! I’m also vaccinated and just got a negative covid test. Thanks!
My apt building just told us only 1 of 2 elevators will be functioning for the next 46 weeks. My lease ends in April 2022. Can I use this as a leverage point to try and keep my current Covid rent price on my apt? Huge inconvenience
In Chicago (24 M) - vibing really well with this girl I met on Tinder, ideas on a Covid friendly date of sorts? Female 🐠 pls help@with your opinion
Have an offer in industry. It’s a relatively new company that is growing fast and lots of opportunity to move up quickly and make a difference. Salary increase wouldn’t be large but enough to make a difference. My heart wants to do it but there is risk involved - not as much stability as the Big 4 company I work for and I’m supporting a family. What do I do? Follow my passion or stay in the safe zone given things are still up in the air with Covid? I appreciate your opinion fishes!

Best place to stay in Montreal? Prefer SPG but open to other suggestions. Not for work. Two trips planned: one with family, other for bachelor party (if that helps)
EY 🐠: wdyt is the appropriate salary range for SC1, Tier 1 city, Masters, 2YOE (I know, im surprised about the offer too with < 4yrs).
I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
I received an offer from Big 4 for an SC3 role. The offer states that I will be eligible for a salary adjustment in Oct 2022. What does this mean? Is that when annual raises occur, or will they review my performance and determine if I should be promoted to manager? I have enough YOE for a manager, but the team recommends that I come in as SC3 to learn how things are done since I have no prior consulting experience.
