Damn this sensitive generation


Not to be a prick but who are you to judge, not too many people know what a consultant is. Do you even know the difference between optometrist and ophthalmologist?


You're no better and you know it


Maybe he meant 5AM!

I think a lot of consultants who bill by hour go home by 5:00 or 6:00. Like IT. Know quite a few buddies who clock out by 5:00. Management consultants is a different story obviously.

Guys and girls , every project and situation is different . I haven't been working fridays last 8 months. But there have been years I had to sacrifice weekends and even long weekends . Let's not generalize. In short some consultants do leave at 5/6 and some do not .

Just thinking of this does my head in. I'm a European living in London, UK planning on living in the US shortly who will want to retire in Europe eventually, closing the circle. I'm now contributing to my pension in the UK, which can be easily moved to Europe. But what's the deal if I go to the US? Can I move my savings into a 401k and then eventually all that into a European pension scheme?

How do I get the best of this without losing money or committing a crime?

Is 4 units multifamily house in NYC (Queens) considered residential or commercial? I’m getting different answers online. My parents just purchased one and when we call to activate the electric/gas, the main unit is considered commercial. We are not sure what that means. Does this has any tax implications?
