My significant other (both 25) and I net around 250k in MCOL. We max out retirement accounts(401k,IRA, HSA), invest, and still have DI to travel, eat out, and buy what we want. I’m curious as to what people spend their money on?
I had a Sheraton I’m staying in this weekend and reach out to me to say “Please note, that corporate rates are for business travel only and require proof of eligibility.” While I have no issues showing proof of eligibility, I’m on traveling for vacation. I thought we could use our rate codes for leisure travel too. Regardless I’m going to tell them I’m going for work but just curious if they spread fake news. Accenture

Hi D&A 🐟, I’ve been thinking of doing a career pivot from cyber security to data science. My current role is very technical and have experience with Python, PowerShell, AWS (SAA cert), Azure (Security Engineer cert in progress), and a bunch of other cyber security related technical skills.

I have an old relationship with a c-level client leader that’s having some issues with someone at my company doing work for him. I’m not part of that work, and I want to help both sides. It’s fixable but puts me in an awkward position, e.g. needing to call out one senior person in my company that maybe isn’t a good fit there when I don’t really have any details other than what the client/friend tells me. Any guidance if you have been here? Thanks.

Any tips? Dealing with resourcing issues for one of our largest clients. We have enough hours, just waiting for more experienced team members to be hired to complete it. We’ve reprioritized work so many times to get what we can done with the team we have, but still have important items waiting to be completed with more Sr. Folks. We’ve also borrowed from other teams, but it doesn’t cover up the fact we could be getting the work done faster with the right team. Advice for dealing with the client?

I got my year end review and need “another 6 months of consistency” to get promoted. I know my bonus is lower than the median for my pay band. Should I ask for a pay raise / larger bonus or just wait for promotion in 6 months so I don’t rock the boat?
