How do you deal with an SO that gives you the “I’m not ALL straight white men” “I’ve had my own set of struggles” “I’ve been discriminated against too” ? (Note: he actually did have a pretty rough upbringing).
My doormen are very good. Some are better than others obviously, but overall very satisfied with the staff at my building. Very tight security, personable, etc. I live in a 120 unit apt with 8 staff total, incl. super.
How much is appropriate for a holiday tip per person?
Best to give equal amounts for all 8 even though some have never helped me, etc. (e.g., super or handyman has not helped me with anything)?

I started about 4 weeks ago a smaller boutique firm, I have a strong EQ and I can sense the president is not a fan of me. He critiques everything I submit to my supervisor and him, even when I directly follow the process my supervisor taught me. I really like my job and I don’t want to lose it - I’m not sure what to do. Please help me before I have a breakdown

Any business analyst here feels satisfied with hike while switching and convinced with the profile?
Welcome to this bowl. As an auditor who aspires to exit in investment banking, I figured I am not alone. Go crazy, ask your questions and hopefully people who made the switch will answer!
In my late 20s and struggling with acne (inflamed white heads). Finally going to see a dermatologist - any advice? Any prescription topical things that have worked for you? Or any other recs?
Hello Account Friends -
Our small agency is getting our feet wet with influencer outreach & I’d love n’ appreciate any input how to best handle influencers specifically with:
1) Influencer Replies (should we set a deadline, like 1-week, before moving on to our next pick)?
2) Any suggestions/resources for influencer rates? Many are coming back higher & unwilling to come down from what we see reasonable.
Thanks in advance!
Too many Tharki Chokras out here. Uff!
Joined an UMM fund a few months back and things have been pretty lax and we haven’t pursued a new platform yet. I haven’t really got to fully own a workstream yet and instead am more task focused and just do what my VP tells me. It feels a lot different than BCG where it was all about ownership and I’m worried I’m falling behind the learning curve. Any folks have a perspective to share on this?
For a little mood boost #loveyourself

Finally admitting to myself that the office is not happening for at least another 6 months. I have a monitor and I’m going to order an office chair this week. What are other things you’ve bought that have made WFH easier?

How much is your gym membership?
Looking to lose the baby weight, surround my WFH lonely self with other motivated folks, and meet new people in this town.
Really trying to justify this epic amazing gym stocked with facilities & amenities instead of jogging / peloton / planet fitness / 24 hour fitness.
No other big expenses other than mortgage & food & car, low key person generally not extravagant. But I want this. It's $250/ month for family (2 adults, 2 kids in onsite daycare).
Fun game: what can you tell (gender, income, job, age, number of kids etc..) about me from my groceries? Let’s keep it fun— don’t be rude/mean :p
California in full lock down.
How do you make your husband understand that you are working and you are not just messing around home! Seriously since we started WFH I have faced lots of distractions from him and I got tired of repeating myself that I’m working & I need to focus. We do not have any kid but in that sense I think I could have make a kid understand to not keep nudging me when I’m working😓
I have two offers - one in NYC and one that’s in a LCOL area with no income tax - and they both roughly pay the same. The NYC one seems cool and is more well-known - is it worth taking the HCOL for it?
