I’m reevaluating my homeowners insurance and the agent brought up that I need my watch collection appraised to have it covered. (Yes, it is stupid I haven’t done this yet, but oh, well.) Point is, does anyone know some organization in the Northeast who can appraise watches? I called Tourneau, but no one has called me back.
Looking at moving to Raleigh. Fed law clerk who also clerked in state court (NJ). Curious as to the potential salaries and benefits for a third-year associate and what is/isn’t negotiable.
Ladies - how do you make friends as you get older? My social circle has diminished over the years as people have gotten married, have kids and move to the suburbs. I’m the token single person and find it’s difficult to make new friends as an adult, especially with other women who are like minded - career, health and fitness oriented (& won’t revert to catty high school antics or drama).
If a company offers free session with mental counselors and therapists as benefits, do you think this would be an indicative that the work can be bad for you? I know some insurance benefits provide it, but certain companies also offer paid sessions. Although this sounds great...I wonder if this shouldn't be seen as red flag for a toxic environment or unhealthy job in the long term.

Buy or rent? I make about 64k in LA and do a 20 percent 401k contribution so take home is around $1.2k per paycheck. The max I could do for down payment is $50k. Currently have $10k car loan. Looking a 2B condo or apartment to rent/Airbnb out other bedroom. Is it worth it? Renting seems like burning cash to me. Anyone have experience buying recently in LA area? Process is kind of overwhelming 😞
How many of you deal with androgenic alopecia? What does your treatment plan look like? Any success stories? 25F here and I’ve done (and quit) minoxidil, spironolactone, visceral, finasteride, derma rolling. There’s reasons why I gave up on each but primarily because I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted for the number of side effects. I’ve been on a pretty low key plan since with supplements and more conscientious dietary choices. This still affects my mental health dramatically though.
My coworkers and I want to report someone to HR but they are best friends with the one HR person that handles stuff like that... (Other HR person is strictly payroll/holidays/benefits)
Is anyone else upset by how much we lose from our paychecks to taxes?? I calculated it out and it’s like 20% of mine. Why give people stimulus checks when you could just have everyone pay less in taxes.
For those of you that are married...Are you maxing out tax-advantaged accounts individually, or does everything fall under one person? Pretty much are you contributing $9750 each, $19,500 to a 401k account for the both of you, or are you contributing $39,000 in total?
Offer at a boutique in DC. Smaller firm but would learn lots. Worried about brand recognition leaving ibm. Pay and benefits are all the same. Any advice?
New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA. I know everyone recommends backdooring this into a Roth IRA, but if my plan is to move/retire to a state with no state income tax, wouldn't traditional make more sense? Or am I overthinking this? Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!

Has anyone left financial services consulting and made a jump to CPG world? What are the best transferable skills to play up during interviews?
Just found out I passed on-sites (non-tech role) and am invited back for the final interview this week plus a prep call tomorrow with recruiters (along with other candidates).

My on-sites were primarily GCA/hypotheticals and questions about my background, so curious and eager to know what to expect during this final round so I can have more time to prep tonight prior to the prep call tomorrow. TYIA!
