This is about to be the first month in my life where I'm unable to pay off my credit card statement balance (about 2.5k leftover) and I'm feeling like such a failure. Any tips on how to mitigate the impact of this and get out of the hole asap?
Am I too old? Too old to chase a wild dream of living in a beach town? Too old to follow a hunch? Too old to sell everything and start over somewhere else? Some days I feel like I am. With parents in failing health and a grandpa that is lonely most of the time, I feel obligated to stay here. To keep living the life that “makes sense”. I’m 32 single, no kids, own my home, essentially have life by the tail. I live an hour from where I grew up. Feel like I don’t fit in with my friends anymore…
Query regarding Skilled Worker visa maintenance section. I'm moving to UK via Accenture and they're A-rated and certifying that they will support me for first month on the CoS. Does that mean they will necessarily pay for my accommodation for that period or give me some advance money?

Recently I moved to a new practice within PwC. I got my H1B approval notice extended and amended to meet the requirements of a new job role. I got my visa dates booked for my H1B stamping using my old Receipt number. I can fill out the new DS160 form that’s required at the time of OFC interview but how should I tackle with new Approval notice/receipt number situation since I can’t edit the user profile on my visa application page. Has anyone encountered this before ? Any help is appreciated here

Amazon FLDP vs Gartner Consulting (post-MBA level). I am worried taking Amazon will close the door for consulting in the future. Amazon comp - 130k base + 80k sign-on bonus (~45k first year, ~35k second year) + 100k RSU (4 year vest). Gartner - 125k base + 15K EOY Bonus + 10k sign-on bonus. Do I pass on my hopes for consulting and chase the money?
What is the best way to spend Amex points? I feel transferring to Airlines (whose 1 mile < 1cent) is not a good way to redeem them.
I am new to US and working on visa. I have read some details about HSA and as per my understanding HSA can only be used towards medical treatment to help high deductible cost. If I don't visit dr very often and considering I am in US for next 2-3 years. Does it make sense to spend into HSA?
is it a red flag to you if your decently sized mid law firm has never once mentioned pro bono opportunities? we don’t have any kind of diversity initiative either and obviously i know how i feel about THAT. but was wondering how weird this part of it is.
What is the general comp structure like at ACN for MC for the following levels (Tier 1 city) -SA -C1 -C2 -C3 -M1 -M2 -M3 -SM
We spout gender equality, but often ask women to do things men don't get asked to do. From organizing lunches/events at work (pre-Rona), to babysitting our siblings because we are girls with motherly insticts. It is generally expected that women do certain things that are "for the good of the community" which is just unpaid work for no praise. Let's change this. Let's start the change at home and it will translate elsewhere If you won't ask your son to do it, don't ask your daughter to do it.
Hi, I’ve 2.6YOE in Pyspark, Python and Big Data Technologies and in Life Science Domain and looking for in the same domain in Mumbai or Pune. Please do let me know if there is any opening for the same.
An ECD of mine fired me after I talking me out of quitting, then talked shit about me to literally the most prominent headhunter in advertising. This was 20 years ago. Now he wants to be friends on Facebook. WWYD?
FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴
I had a lot of meetings/interviews with a service line and office I was thinking of transferring. The last time I had a call with a partner was two Fridays ago (10 days). And they told me they’ll discuss and let me know in the next week. I sent a follow up email after my meeting. But haven’t heard anything back. Is it a bad sign? Or should I try reaching out again?
Hi fam! Me and my partner (females) just got an oral consent from my partners best friend (gay male) to be a sperm donor. Anyone has experience with this? I know lesbians usually go to sperm bank but we wanted to know “baby daddy” and have him involved as a godparent and when kids ask questions introduce him as a father. Personal life stories and dos and donts welcome. All my friends are straight or gay men so I have this resource and general internet.
Where are my ATL gays at? 😁
I can’t recommend this book enough if you care about income equality, finance, or taxes.
Can anyone help me evaluate whether I should take an exit opportunity. Currently in big 4 (fsrm) and have the opportunity to join a f250 payments firms internal strategy division. They report directly to the c-suite and said they mainly focus on strategy or M&A and don’t do implementation. The team seems really nice but I’m just worried about leaving consulting and leaving the accelerated progression. Would love some insights as I’m fairly lost on what to decide. Thanks!
Big 4 is a high school ! I like to play :)
Anyone tried the new Sanctions Certificate (CGSS) offered by ACAMS? Trying to see how difficult it is considering I don't have a lot of experience with sanctions compliance. I have CAMS & work in AML

When can you start applying for unemployment, is it on the last day on the job or, after you’re no longer on the payroll (after everything has been paid out). Thanks
The US tax code section is complex and full of references to other code sections. WHAT IF, JUST WHAT IF, after clicking through all references, you land at the final code section that just says "go f*ck yourself"? Client - "Hey, we're thinking of doing this one transaction, what is the tax consequence?" Me - "go f*ck yourself"
