A crying child in the economy plus seat next to me on my 5 am flight out of ORD...it's gonna be a GREAT WEEK!!!
How would you respond to someone who thinks it’s unfair that new parents get paid parental leave? He seems to understand why parental leave is important (good for baby, society, etc) but ...
Got a client who’s asked for a POV on how covid-19 will affect buys across ALL verticals & channels. Of course it’s urgent. Can we please share what our companies are saying? Teamwork time, folks.
Would appreciate thoughts on when to pay of student loans. Have about 40k left @ 4.5% (refinanced twice). I should be able to pay them off in one lump sum in a few months with personal savings. I’m currently paying the minimum, while saving aggressively in HYSA account , contributing to 401k to employer match, and contributing to Roth IRA. Does it make sense to just knock them out or should I increase investments focus? I know there’s likely not a “right” answer but what would you do?
Hi 🐠! What are some tangible methods you have successfully used to avoid lifestyle creep? I currently max my 401k and IRA each year, and was thinking of putting 50% of raises/bonuses towards investments so I never see it hit my bank account, but curious what you all have done. Trying to find a balance of prep for fin freedom while enjoying life. Thanks!
A few weeks ago our holding company said we’d be remote for all of 2021, that nobody would be forced to come into the office. Today we got an email from the CEO of our agency network (not it’s holding company) saying we’d have three months to make arrangements to come back; for instance, if things are better in June we’ll come back in September. I HATE these mixed messages. Are we remote for 2021, or not???
Anyone in litigation use Trello? Todoist? Anything similar? I’m looking for a system to keep up in cases personally.
Anyone get a Grant Thornton offer recently? Wondering how much I can realistically push for a signing bonus (if at all) after being told I’m on the upper end of the base range
NJ is going back to the classroom. Portland OR is not returning until January. It’s so interesting how differently states are dealing with Covid. What’s your state doing?
I’ve been an associate at the same firm for a little over 3 years. I collect 2.5 times the amount of my salary. Is that good, bad, average?
Moved into a new building a couple months ago. There’s a doorman who will see me struggling with packages or bags and never offers to help (automatic door so he’s not even actually opening the door). Am I really expected to give him a holiday bonus at the end of the year??
What are some exit opportunities for FSO Tax Tech at EY? Choosing between this and audit. What are some benefits of one over the other? Which will lead to better prospects in the future?
Last min requests for proactive decks to show the client ‘we’re doing stuff’ that have to be worked on over the weekend only to be not used the following week are really getting to me. It’s a wonderful way to let employees know you don’t care about them while having mandatory meetings so the company can tell employees how much the agency cares about them.
How do you collect data on writing goals/objectives? I struggle because it’s hard for me to judge how much the student did independently or whether they had help from a para, classroom teacher, peer editor, etc. I can’t be in every class every time they are working on writing!
In my early weeks of pregnancy & expecting a job offer. Has anyone accepted an offer in the midst of pregnancy? Did you negotiate to Maternity Leave b4 the 1yr tenure?
The real reason you need to be smart to go into consulting is in order to do the math on all those credit card and airline points.
Getting really sick of health care providers and my own health insurance company trying to constantly screw me on medical bills. I've caught errors on the last 5 bills I've received. Starting to think this is happening on purpose...
I have not seriously worked out since quarantine started. Anyone got stories to share of getting back into it? Pre covid I was one of the most fit people at my gym, now I’m 30lbs lighter and winded walking up stairs and carrying amazon boxes
