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.
We’re finally going engagement ring shopping tomorrow!! I love the look of diamonds but I just can’t justify the expense at this point in our lives. Any suggestions on alternative stones?

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).
Why does it feel like all agencies are either totally award obsessed or business obsessed. Is there no agency that can exist with those two working hand in hand? Why must one always come at the expense of the other. Am I just jaded? Idk tbh

I just learned that my younger adult sibling has been severely, deeply depressed. This surfaced when sib said they needed help moving and the family showed up to find that the entire apartment was under 3-4ft of trash, including a significant amount of rotten food. (Sib has no sense of smell due to past medical issues.) We are floored. Sib is very private and no one knew. With COVID, no one has been in the apartment. Sib’s supposed to be moving across the country, and we’re worried…

How likely is it that I'll get OT this busy season as an intern at Deloitte? My last team made interns go home at 5pm. So, No OT for them.
I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
Advice needed! Have just been asked to Freelance with W2 form. Without any benefits. Is this even possible? Would I lose my eligibility for Unemployment insurance once the gig ends? I was laid off from my full time agency job 2 months ago and have already freelanced as self employed on an LLC since. Seems like they’re being tight and taking advantage of the current climate.
