Normally pay my credit card off in full each month but find myself with a 10k balance (mix of medical, a/c repair, other unexpected events). I have 15k in savings, but I'm uncomfortable using most of it until closer to bonus time (wife stays home and I have 2 kids). Is this the right approach? Paying interest doesn't make sense either. Helpful advice only please
Anyone have one of the Delta AMEX cards? Worth it? Why? Like the companion pass option, but not sure I can justify one over other premium cards (CSR, AMEX Plat)...
I'm 7 months in and doing a really bad job at my current project because I hate consulting and the job itself makes me really miserable. I feel really helpless and don't know what to do because the worse I do the worse opportunities I'll get at this firm later on and then I won't be able to leave. I've been interviewing with some other companies but no offers so far, afraid I won't get any because I'm leaving so soon. Truly feel so helpless and lost, I really want out.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that we’re not gonna be required to come back in the office come September with the delta variant picking up speed￼
A client based in Japan had sent us a list of some Japanese texts and their English translations at our request which we needed. SM: Copy all the Japanese texts and their translations from document that client sent into a new document and send it back to client (to whom it came from) and ask them if they are correct. Me: Why are we doing that? SM: Just to ensure that we have validation in an email that client sent these translations to us. Me: Facepalm 🤦🏻♂️

You’re given a brief for an OOO campaign. Could be cool. How many days are you given before you have to show concepts to the ECD? And to the client? Curious about time expectations at different places.
Re-watching the Javy Baez walkoff last night against the Reds and absolutely loved the fire/smack talking in a series where there’s historical bad blood between the two. Which leads me to wonder, is there any sort of sense of rivalry at all between competitor firms? We joke about it through avenues like social media but has anyone actually first-hand experienced a competitive/hateful side to work that they didn’t know existed? (Like when a client is poached or business won from a competitor).
Potential agency boomerang having a hard time making a decision to stay brand-side or go back. Need some advice! Do I leave the brand, being "the client," fun work, great WLB, as well as the most toxic work environment I've ever experienced and meh pay? Do I go back to agency lead a new team with significant responsibilities, forget about WLB, sell my soul alongside smart people, get great pay and benefits? PS: I'm a mom and brand-side for 5 years. What do I need to know!? Thank you!

How do I know I need to review a SOC report? If I’m relying on a report, yes I need to. But what about those applications that client uses as back-up center (AWS for instance).

I recently posted about moving to Antigua and Barbuda to live and work remotely on the digital nomad visa. Several people expressed interest in how I'm doing it, so I created an instagram. I'm documenting the steps of emigrating including pet import licenses, enrolling kids in an international school, cooking local food, and assimilating to life in the Caribbean. For those who are interested, check me out at: https://www.instagram.com/webelongbythesea/

Received an offer at 25% above my current salary. What are the chances that I’ll give notice and receive an out of cycle pay increase to keep me where I am? Does that ever happen?
Hi all - I’m working as a Jr AE at a remote agency. Before full-time at this agency, I interned there for 2 years and often did pro-bono work. I love my company so much, but I often feel stuck when it comes to salary and growth. The salary is minimum wage and every time I ask about a raise they agree I need one but never get around to it. Today, I was offered a position at another agency as a remote AE with more than double my current salary. I didn’t seek this job out but don’t know what to do.
Any suggestions on which bank to get a credit card from?

Our baby is due soon so we’ve made the decision that we will only have visits from vaccinated family members (not realizing it would be an issue) only to find out that my Dad will never be getting vaccinated, planned to lie about it AND asked other family members lie to us about his vaccination status too… when we found out and asked him about it, he started to FREAK out. Now I’m questioning if we’re being unreasonable… how have you guys been handling unvaccinated people meeting your newborns??
