We have HHI of 260k excluding bonus. Currently own a house (current value is 440k) with 45% mortgage remaining. Planning to buy a new house of 500k. Combined mortgage of both house would be approx 4.7k per month. We both max out 401k and I normally invest 25k via megadoor roth + 2 529s for both kids. Q is Can I afford new house or should I sell current buy and book the profit since realty mkt is so high and our house has the max value currently?

I currently work at a firm that pays above market. 12 YOE, people transformation ( culture, not ERP/tech implementation) background. Current total comp is about $140-150k, plus $20k unvested equity.

If there’s a mismatch between the 797 and visa stamping I.e. 797 valid for three years (standard) and visa for 5, do we need to get it restamped after extension approval, with the same company?
Is it worth moving to Oliver Wyman from Accenture? Move is at the associate level. Base is 130K and potentially higher bonus (25k average estimate). But already at 127K at Accenture at the consultant level and up for promotion this year to push to $150 to 160k base.
I am looking for a way to create a lookup in excel where I can type a value into a "search" cell, and excel will spit out every instance in a range where that search term occurs, as well as a corresponding value from a seperate cell. Example of what I envision attached. Data table on the right, search and results on the left. Bonus points if it can be done with multiple columns of phrases.

The real reason you need to be smart to go into consulting is in order to do the math on all those credit card and airline points.
Hey Fishes- So my parents got B2 Visa on March 2020 to come for my graduation in May. But due to covid, they couldn’t travel. The visa has duration of 5 years. I heard somewhere that if you don’t travel within 1 year of obtaining visa, you can’t use the remaining visa? Is that true?
Good article in WSJ today on best credit cards for points/ value for money; seems this new BOA card is the real deal....
Bonvoy Brilliant cardholders: can you make a reservation for another person, not accompany them, and still get points/member rate? How about if an authorized user of your card makes a res for himself?
Loose fixture outside hotel room window kept me up all night being blown around in the wind. How many points?

PwC - QS (tax group) - can someone speak more to this group? Hours expectations? Compensation? Is it pigeonholing my career or are there decent exit opps?
Some people just have it all. The partner that I work with is on fast track. Became partner in late 30s (no mba). Has multiple kids and is also a talented artist. How do these people manage to have a very good family life, also be on fast track in the firm (which means spending endless hours ) and also do something they love (sing, paint, dance) on the side? I have one kid and I don’t seem to find any time outside of work and spending time with my kid

Pros of Working in a Boys Club: The F Bathroom is now yours. Leave skin care. A hairbrush. Toothbrush. A cot. Buy a door lock. Move in. Sell your condo. Get fired then live rent-free in the vents.
Hi guys and girls I need some input making an unbiased decision. Option A - IBM cloud consulting €42k base with profit sharing bonus not sure how much this is and thinking this is a good option because it could = google etc in the future and the scope of the work would be larger and the possibility to have more flexibility in terms of type of work and divisions I could move around into.

Has anyone ever used the SkyBaby for flying? What are your thoughts? Me and the 6mo old will be flying solo cross country. It’s not our first rodeo, but the last one (when he was 4mo) was pretty miserable. I had the boba wrap on the way there and it was just way too hot and confining. The baby bjorn on the way back was better but he still got pretty squirmy so I ended up taking him out and holding him for 4 hours. And tickets are way too expensive for his own seat.

Anyone heard anything about Alara Union Station? Google reviews aren’t great but it seems like a really nice building with awesome amenities
Fam— would anyone be interested in a Glassdoor for black people? i.e anonymized reviews of companies from POCs. I think it would be massively helpful in gauging the diversity and inclusivity of a company outside polished recruitment processes and would publicly hold companies accountable. Thoughts?
