Can people on OPT or H1B get Clear membership for airport security? Does anyone know if we can expense it?
Has anyone moved from a H/MCOL city to a small town or rural area? Any regrets in regards to career progression, networking, or lack thereof? I'm thinking of making the move this winter in order to cut my housing expense by more than half and to put my daughter in better Catholic school. My employer doesn't care where we live so long as we can get to an airport. I grew up in a small town, so it wouldn't be a shock to me, just worried about how it may affect my career trajectory.
Booking an international flex trip.. charge it to the WBS and pay the difference or expense it? Trying to get around the auditors
Did Deloitte have a late-night Uber policy before the pandemic? Joining in a month and also moving and wondering how much I should consider it. For context, my current company had a policy pre-pandemic where we could Uber home every time we worked after 7PM and we could expense meals as well during those days.
Deloitte folks - question on the "fitness membership/fee while traveling" expense; I know it isn't deducted from our wellness benefit but are we taxed on this or is it 100% covered?
I’ve been told by my firm that I need to get a corporate amex card. I’m new to consulting- can I still use my own credit card to get the points and expense that way? If it’s the corporate card can I still get points for it also or does it only go to EYP? Curious to know if a corporate amex is even a good thing or the benefits for it. Thanks!

I feel like this is a big fat no: I left Deloitte in 2019. In 2019 I traveled to two states for work...is there a way to get Deloitte to reimburse me for the $110 I’m about to pay to TurboTax?
I’m a prospective UBS employee. I was told by the recruiter that bank doesn’t provide physical machines to employees and that we need to use our personal computer for office work. 1. Is the above stated info correct? 2. Does the bank reimburse laptop cost, if I don’t have a personal laptop/computer? 3. Is macOS compatible?
Thoughts on selecting the Russell 1000 index fund for my 401k? Expense ratio of 0.01%. I was considering the target date fund, but I’m 25 and don’t really want any bonds atm.
Just started investments a month ago, majority in VOO. Have some funds (<5K) in few ETFs where I noticed (last night) the expense ratio is .40, .50, .20, .10 vs compared to VOO’s .03. Thoughts on selling those with higher expense ratio now? ( don’t have a lot of profit or loss at this point as it’s been just a month).

Since the last post focused more on the source then the content here is a more neutral source. It also highlights the fact the mayor lies in her statements about the diversity of the press corps.
What are the benefits of working at a small law firm (about 10 attorneys) as opposed to a midsize firm. What is the difference in the amount of work/ billable hours, benefits (health insurance and PTO), opening doors for future career opportunities, etc. I have an interview at a small law firm, which is not what I ideally wanted, but I am considering it because of the COVID uncertainties. I appreciate any kind of guidance.
Just got an offer with BDO in the Data & Analytics practice. 30% raise, lateral move (Manager 2 to Manager 2) and 20k signing bonus. Is it worth the move to go form PwC to a firm of that size?
Started with big 4, now at BDO.. work in IT audit (have had very successful fast tracked career in IT audit) and at Manager rank. Interested in moving over more-so to cyber security type consulting and escaping the IT audit prison (aren’t we all lol). Any advice on education / certificate requirements on how to transition more-so into cyber type space?

Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.

What’s better being at a small consulting firm working with people you like and solid culture but lower pay. Or going to a bigger firm (Accenture, Big Four, etc.) with more competitive higher pay?

Looking from some insight on exit opportunities to tech firms - Amazon, Google, smaller tech firms. I have an engineering background but have mostly worked in finance for close to 10 years. I feel I am lagging in technology to get into these firms. Any recommendations on skills to develop?
1yr associate- My supervising partner in commercial is known to be a nut cracker, but he’s also very highly regarded for his work. He’s been coming down on me for careless mistakes in my papers (docket no., venue, verbiage). I know he’s right. I had two clerkships and hate clerical errors, but they have always haunted me. He’s telling me they have to stop.. or else. Help? I have a one year old baby, five year old son and just lost my stepmother to Covid. Can’t handle a job change right now.
Looking for suggestions on weekend trips with a small dog. Bonus if I can use bonvoy points for hotels 🙂
