Best budgeting apps? I have tried every dollar before but it got confusing bc I pay most things on a credit card that I pay off each month, so when I paid the card, the app didn’t know how to categorize the payment coming out of my checking account in my budget (plus it was a lump sum of things). I think I need one that will also link to my credit cards.

So I’m finishing up “The McKinsey Way”, and this guy is going on about all his recommendations for surviving at McKinsey, one of these recommendations being travel items.

Hey y'all, kind of a two part question: 1. I enjoy the people management more than individual contributor stuff.

Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.

Extremely niche question: >1YOE and finally realizing I really want to work in corporate development for a consumer chemicals company (Estee Lauder, Shiseido, etc). Im a chemical engineering major, and had 2 internships in IB M&A.

How can I maximize the chances of getting this move right?
Any moms at kpmg take maternity leave around the time when a salary increase should be taking place (e.g. start your leave mid-september when comp increases is expect in October)? Is it worth pushing off those 4 STD weeks before the due date to get yourself the new salary before going on leave? Any other ways to get the higher salary while on leave? Does it take effect if youre using pto and not the parental leave (maybe save your primary parental leave for a day later or something)?
