I moved within nyc 2 years ago (brooklyn to manhattan) and the only U-Haul available that day was the 22’ truck which was way bigger than I needed. I thought driving it in the city felt fine, having never driven a truck like that before.

You’ll be fine, but as someone who move from Boston odds are whatever your moving it’s not worth the cost. Rent a large SUV/mini van instead.

I did Rochester -> nyc in the smallest truck model. It’s fine just be super careful with your blind spots (both sides)

Don’t think you can use the vans for out-of-city moves. The 10 foot should be fine tho

Totally fine. I just drove a 9’ cargo van from Atlanta to NYC and back a week ago. Much farther than Boston. 😄 It really depends on your comfort level!

I drove the smaller uhaul truck, bigger than cargo, from VA to NYC. I barely drive and made it out okay.

Pros:

- fairly decent place to work (from someone who worked with the Vancouver and San Jose offices). never met a blue badger (permanent employee) who had awful things to say.

- Ashley Goodall (their SVP, Methods & Intelligence) co-authored a brilliant book on leadership and people management called “Nine Lies About Work” that makes me believe they can be an awesome place to work

Cons:

- red badgers had low morale since they’re contract workers and can be terminated at any time

Company I'm interviewing for is asking me to respond to a creative challenge as part of the interview process.

They're requesting platform ideas with responses in the ATL, digital, and content spaces. I find this quite odd given they approached me first rather than the other way around, and to ask for a creative task at the senior leadership level is strange to me.

How should I approach this? Say no? Spend no more than 1-2 hours on the task for a topline response and send with an NDA?

Servus zusammen,

T1/T2 steigt man ja nach dem Master mit ca 80 ein, bin in ner T2 und bin inkl. Bonus bei ca 76k Entry (ca 83k nach 8 Monaten).

Das klingt für mich ja eigentlich ganz gut, wenn man hier allerdings auf Fishbowl unterwegs ist, liest man von den Amis schon ganz andere Summen wie 150k TC; Wie lässt sich das denn vergleichen? Deren Savings-Rate muss doch extrem hoch sein?

Davon abgesehen, wie strukturiert ihr eure Finanzen? Kann von den 3k netto ca 1/2 zur Seite legen..
