What is the most ridiculous “thank you” you’ve received from an employer? My first job out of college gave me a $.02/hr raise after I got a glowing performance review 😂😂😂😂
the siriusxm campaign this year by Translation LLC with all the celebs sharing the same house is cute, wholesome, and occasionally funny, too. i keep seeing it on IG and something about it really appeals to my inner kid (“whoa, all these people live in the SAME HOUSE?!”). good work!
Starting a job on Monday - the company does not yet offer employer match for 401k. Would you still contribute or move straight to IRA? The company is a startup and working on establishing a match. All of the other benefit plans/offerings are insane.
All women fishies out here and there, YOU ALL ARE PHENOMENAL. I cannot thank almighty enough for having you in our lives (coming from a dude😄). You truly make mother earth a better place to live. Keep rocking!
Does anyone see a psychologist? How did you find them? Trying to go through my insurances healthcare portal but it's not very aligned to mental health services.

How do you raise kids to be personally driven?
My MIL has made remarks to my husband that she doesn’t understand why we need a nanny for our infant since I am able to WFH (I’m a biglaw associate). She also doesn’t get why we have a cleaner and dog walker and seems to imply we’re wasting our money by outsourcing funds on things we can do. She was a SAHM so I guess I understand why she feels that way, but how do I explain to her why these things are necessary? I actually love my MIL but this is driving me nuts.
I have an issue: just been informed by compliance I have a violation. Using a brokerage restricted and at this point I am at a loss. I sold off all my stock just to comply. Then put the only stock I kept with the broker, the other one is my wife’s employer 401k savings broker. The instructions say they will reach me within 90 days for next steps. It also says there may be financial penalties. What should I do? I replied the email immediately asking for help. I am a new to Deloitte and the US
For those who have taken parental leave, do you uninstall your work chat app from your phone while you’re away? What about email? Do you delete the account from your email app?
What’s the most you would ever consider contributing to retirement accounts? The max for us is $97k. Which is $58k for a Solo 401k for me, and $39k for both 401k and 457b for spouse.
If we have good, free healthcare through spouse’s job (military), is it still worth it to pay for a high deductible plan through my job to get the benefit of an HSA? For context, we are a family of three. The cost of the health care plan just for myself would be $20/paycheck every two weeks (or about $520/year). Cost to add husband or child to the plan is over $200/paycheck (so I know that’s not an option). My thought is it’s not worth it to pay for the plan, but is there another pt of view?
Accenture folks, I have an offer from Accenture Strat which denotes up to 9% annual bonus/raise. Is this realistically achievable or are they bluffing?
New parent here. Is it normal to pay $34,000 per year per child for child care in your country? I’m pretty shocked. 🇦🇺
NYC UI: I applied 3/9 and claimed weekly benefits every week while pending. My claim was approved 5/13 (with a crazy low of $182/wk). The NY Labor system now says I haven’t claimed my weekly benefits since I applied. Beyond frustrating.
Hi I’m pregnant and due in august. I’m scheduled for the vaccine in two days and reading about (1) the side effects with the second dose and (2) lack of testing for those who are pregnant has me nervous about potential effects to my baby. Any thoughts on whether to get/not get the vaccine? Already consulting my doctor on this but figured y’all might be good to ask, as well.
Unemployment question: Does anyone know if unemployment benefits pick up again right after working freelance (1 week)? I’m so bored and want nothing more than to work but don’t want to screw up any...
I had a parent of one of my students ask today if I tutor over the summer. It had never crossed my mind, but I know it would be insanely beneficial for him. He’s a tough kiddo and relationships are key for him. Summer school with someone new likely would not be nearly as helpful, and he’s on my roster for multiple years. Has anyone done this?
Wife and I are going in with my BIL and SIL to pay for a retirement/40th anniversary/MIL's 60th birthday trip to an island for my parents in law when they retire next year. They think we forgot about all of those events and are going to lose it when we give the gift at Christmas. Father in law has had a lot of frustration, getting included in two mass layoffs in two years and taking two straight 40% pay cuts at the end of his career. We're so excited to give them something to look forward to.

Lady 🐠 - What's S&'s maternity leave policy? Do you get the option to skip CRT? Does it play against you on any way?
My firm sent an email yesterday saying their tracking billable hours DAILY. It’s either they don’t think we’re working from home or about to have some layoffs 🤷🏼♀️

What’s the general consensus (if it exists) about buying points on a mortgage loan? If it helps, I’m getting quoted at 2.875 rate but can buy a little over a point for 9k to get the rate down to 2.625% (loan is a little over 700k). How do I best think about this? I’m expecting this to be a long term home (20+ years ideally unless something goes awry)
