BMW or Mercedes
Which is more impressive as a brand? Thinking of either the E class or 5 series.

Where’s my package?


@mckinsey 1, failed to deliver because we were following the strategy you sold us ;) not to worry, you’ll have it shortly tho - Bain fixed your strategy


BMW has a tad higher in maintenance costs, performance is very similar. I think it depends on what style you like. I would test drive both and ensure you go through all drive modes, that’ll help


New or pre-owned? Both are great options, but the E class has a more luxurious feel especially opposed to the BMW performance feel. Merc has those 2 displays which look amazing. The new BMW’s have the live cockpit which is a big step up but only available from 2019 I believe. Tough decision I’d say test them both out, BMW would be my pick but I’m more biased towards them.


Neither are impressive brands.


Impressive in what essence? German make engines are amazing. The super sedans that are being produced by AMG, BMW M, and Audi are packing some serious performance now.


My personal preference is Mercedes-AMG over BMW.

I work in a director position that calls for a significant amount of work that can be done effectively (& efficiently) in a remote setting. I’ll be returning to work following maternity leave and have proposed a hybrid schedule of 3 in-person and 2 remote days each week with flexibility to increase my in-person days as needed. The response from my supervisor was that we’ll need to ‘manage any remote work to maximize on site time’. Any suggestions on how to approach this with him?

Hi everyone. A friend knows that I do Staffing recruiting and this agency is in charge of providing medical benefits, PTO, and Holiday pay.

We use TempWorks to track everything from interviews, onboarding, E-Verify, background and drug screening, and payroll as well. I document everything. Ok, so my question is do I need any HR specific certifications?

I am thinking of buying a used Maserati (3-4 years old, low mileage and if possible as good deal) and use it for 3 years, put 15 k miles on it and sell it off. The cars available are for $35-40k (Ghibli). Questions for the group
1- will I be able to sell it for 20-25k in 3 years?
