Getting married soon. Want to bring up the mgmt of finances conversation. We both are in the high income bracket in a HCOL city. But had different starting points with me having been in higher paying job for longer, which means we might have different current savings. Not that this matters much as we both are not dingy about who pays for what day to day. But curious to know what are the best practices in terms of: 1. Things to discuss before wedding on finances 2. How to split cost of livingetc
Looking to work somewhere where I can be more passionate about the work I am doing and Spotify & Coinbase seem like good starting points. I’m curious if theres anyone on here who’s jumped from consulting to either of these companies and what their experience has been like? I’ve only ever worked at Deloitte so want to get an idea of what I could expect. I’ve heard coinbase is pretty tough hours (with good pay) and Spotify is more laid back (with not so good pay) - 8 yr Mgr at Deloitte

Hi all! Would anyone know how safe Park Hill is? I'm specifically looking at MLK Jr. Blvd, about 5~10 blocks east of Colorado Blvd, near the City of Axum Park.

Ideally, I'd like to commute into downtown via public transit 1-2 times a week, so any insights into Denver buses would also be greatly appreciated!
Partners: How do some partners get fired? I know that on the surface it is due to their performance, but i am curious if you have any data points or observations on any underlying drivers. I work for a global firm, and though most partners I know are lifers, i personally have worked with a couple partners who were counseled out. They were seemingly good, competent consultants good at structuring problems. They cared about junior consultants. Didnt see any issues with clients..

Hey there! I work in a mid-size full service agency with a growing marketing team. We currently don't have a CD due to our size and current client portfolio, but that's a role I'd love to step into when the time is right and my management is on board with that. Any advice on how to prepare for that kind of role without changing agencies? Or anyone open to mentoring me?
