I have a good life, good family, wife, kids, good job, and a good salary. But sometimes I feel that I want to take a Mulligan. In my mind, I replay my life from different points. 8 years old, 10, 13, 15 etc. All times when I see decisions I made affecting my life’s trajectory. I want to stop this but do not know how. Does anyone else do this? Any advice on how to stop?
Do I need to be rated at next level on all five points in my snapshot to be promoted to senior?

Can someone check my math? My apartment complex allows us to pay via credit card for a $6.95 fee. If our rent is $1,910, it would make sense point-wise, to pay via Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card since the points could be valued at $28.65, assuming a 1.5% rate, right? Am I missing something?

Thoughts on buying custom/modded seikos? They seem to range from the sublime to the ridiculous. I originally just wanted to get one as a beater but the sapphire crystal is a must for me and I don’t trust my fat fingers to make the swap. But now I’m seeing some very cool inspired designs at crazy low price points 🤔
Anyone ever stayed at the Rosewood Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen? What’s the best way to cash in points from CSR, AmEx, or AA for something off brand like this?

Does anyone else hoard points and miles?
How long before a firm pushes out a burnt out senior associate? Has anyone been in that position? How long? Was the firm direct or was it subtle? Am a corporate associate so may have a tiny bit of leeway in this hot market but not by much

Anyone from the BB banks. What are the average yearly hikes and bonus % at Associate, VP and Director level in strategy roles?
Mamas how are y’all surviving going back to work after leave. I feel like I’m sinking over here. I’ve been back for a month and was put on a project with ridiculous hours. I’m literally on meetings while picking baby up from daycare, during feeding time, and after putting baby down to sleep. I have help, but my husband is working long hours as well and he actually commutes to the office everyday.
What does career progression typically look like in valuation? Is comp/promos decent/better then audit
PTO - Alhumdulillah
I have seen multiple posts of people complaining about the US immigration policies. Attitudes and laws around U.S. immigration have vacillated between welcoming and restrictive since the beginning.
Is everyone short staffed? I mean in my office the turnover is currently insane. Not really sure how the next year will go without an extreme hiring spree.
Alvarez & Marsal, anyone join at the junior level and now Director or MD? Curious how you think about WLB over time - bonus is obviously structured in such a way, as is the leave policy. But... are you always switched on, or do you feel you have time to breathe?
