At the TSA Pre checkpoint and absent-mindedly handed the security agent my corp Amex instead of DL. “You can’t buy me sir, although I appreciate the offer” Glad he took it in good humor. 🤣
Suggested places to visit around Toronto. Also visa processing time and fees.? fyi- I live in NY area.

Desi Folks on visa - Is it really hard to switch jobs in the current scenario? Got a few rejects in December citing visa issues. Thinking of giving it a go again. Inputs will really help.
Feeling frustrated and disappointed - have a very strong background/work experience and can’t get the right opportunity outside due to visa issue! How are you guys dealing with this?
Does requesting a higher limit on your credit card improve your credit score presuming you don't change your spending habits?
What’s the best way to retain the value of AmEx points? New employer doesn’t provide Corp AmEx and don’t want personal AmEx. Have CSR, and use SPG and Delta.

I live in NY and am being offered a job in the mid-western office of a large network agency for about half my current salary, based on some unofficial website (attached). I would accept a small adjustment but this seems crazy. A salary isn’t just to pay rent, it’s meant to be to give you a chance to save, pay off loans etc. I’m sure their clients don’t pay them half the fees of the NY clients. I was laid off and the market is very slow, which is the reason I’m entertaining this idea. Thoughts?

Got an interview for equity research analyst at a bulge bracket bank. Ultimate goal is PE/hedge fund and wanted to know if there is a roadmap from a research analyst role and what that might look like
My team recently had a presentation delivered on BLM by a black female analyst. She was quite impassioned but also professional in my view. My partner thinks that 1) she needs to tone down her message and 2) she doesn't offer any solutions for the firm, and wants to feed it back. I think 1 is tone-policing and 2 isn't an analyst's job. For context, I'm based in London (largely removed from US politics/social issues etc) and am a non-black minority. My B4 firm has ~2 black partners out of 800.
Being poached for a tiny strictly local consulting firm. <25 people. What things/red flags should I look for? Most folks on the team are ex-Big 4/Accenture/Slalom.
