For pooled holiday tips, how do you know all of it is actually going to the building staff? Or is it just a trust/laziness thing?
I dont necessarily fit in this bucket and wished I had known the information you all have at your fingertips. I believe my picture would be totally different. I'm 60+ and will retire in the next yr. I think it is great that you all are doing well even for the perceived late starters. I started seriously saving in my early 50s. Over that time I have 2 mortgages no other debt and a nice nest egg. Curious though, how are you all going to cover medical in early retirement?
Level of interest in midterms is 73% among seniors, 35% among young voters. If you’re sick of the country being run by old people scared of immigrants and “socialism,” be a voter. Make a plan NOW.

Do any firms offer medical insurance benefits that cover IVF, freezing eggs, or surrogate assistance?
So sick of working hard to please the people above me and in turn they couldn’t care less about me or my wellbeing. Once busy season is over, I’m out. Can’t do another busy season.
Started a new job this week and it’s super strange meeting people virtually. Not sure if there’s another thread out there about this but does anyone have any tips? I’m waiting until a non holiday week to reach out to people for a quick chat, but it feels so not personable

How much do you tip your building for XMas/holiday bonus? The doorman/staff have been awesome so want to make sure I’m tipping a good amount after a tough year.
I don’t know about you guys, but I feel that everything is negative in this industry. The only solution people have for the problems at work is drinking and complaining. Who else is sick of that?
Anybody know anyone who has moved from consulting into medical sales (equipment, pharmaceuticals, etc.)?

When your holiday party is scheduled in December instead of January... 3 hours after tax reform removes the entertainment expense deduction
I am in a single income family with a small army of children. We have enough medical bills from chronic meds and random happenings that we just do the plans that have the smallest deductible(out of pocket) due to risk of large medical bills. Therefore I do not do the HSA because I don't have the high deductible plan. Should I rethink that? Help me think through this.
Anyone have insight into revenue accounting? I’m interviewing for a sr revenue accountant position and wondering if it’ll be too pigeonholed. I also have zero background in this type of accounting so it would be completely new to me, but the hiring manager didn’t seem to mind that I don’t have any experience in this area. I’m fed up with the hours and lack of support in public and want to leave before next busy season for context.

Has anyone considered or is anyone a practicing SMBC (single mother by choice), while still being a full time consultant? Thinking about going down that road to have my own child.
What the most outrageous billable hours you can confirm at your firm? Just learned from a partner that the highest billers at my firm came in at 3600, 3500 and 3200. Seems fishy to me.
Morning fishies! Strategies for not feeling isolated while preferring to work from home. Go! Bonus points for apartment dwellers’ POV.
Not sure if this has been shared on here, but looks like Bonvoy is updating point redemptions to align with cash value of rooms vs seasonal peaks / hotel categories. So for example a Category 8 hotel in peak season is 100k points/night, regardless of nightly rate (let’s say it’s $2,000/night). I’m speculating you’ll see that jump to something like a 1:100 exchange so that the same hotel room in 2022 will be 200k points / night.
overheard at LGA is a guy who says he feels "murderous" when standby passengers get better seats than him on the plane... 😳 #frequentstandbypassenger #igetfirstclassalot #dontkillme
Preparing for a case interview that sounds like it’s pretty quant/mental math heavy. Any suggestions on how to learn the quant/calculation aspect in a reasonable amount of time. Any good resources? I looked online but most of them seem to cost money. Thanks!
