PSA: make sure your auto pay setting for credit card is set to pay full amount & minimum amount. Had to pay $100 interest. Fucking Mint didn't even notify me.

Should I get an OCI card? Would like to visit India this summer. Have existing 10year stamp that's valid but not sure if tourist visa suspension will be lifted by then.
One of my best friends always talks about how she loves using afterpay so she can buy things, like stuff from Sephora, and pay later when she has the money. She also has mentioned that she is working on paying off her credit card debt. It hurts me to hear her say these things because I feel like she’s putting herself in a situation that can easily escalate and she won’t be able to get out of debt. Should I kindly mention something or is it not my business?
See a lot of people slamming their “big firm” experience and wanting to move on from it. I’ve got 2YOE but not at a big firm and can’t help feeing I’m missing out on something (name brand, skills, network etc). Is it better not to chase it and go somewhere else (tech / startups etc) rather than trying to get in at entry level ?

Anyone have any book recommendations on Islamic history? I’m looking for something beginning from the first prophet (pre Islam I guess?) to full revelation. Looking to get a timeline understanding. So I guess some Jewish and Christian stuff would be in there too. It’s scary how little I know
Hi to everyone, My personal aim is to enroll in MBA study in two years but I’m not very fluent with English (B1+/B2). Should I prepare IELTS first and after GMAT or vice versa?

Hi All, I’m an analyst with 2 years experience that was recently laid off. Anyone know of anywhere hiring/can refer me? Much appreciated!
We live in the Metro Detroit area and our 6 month old has eczema. I fly to client locations and my wife works from home. So we are looking for the best place (climate) to relocate to so we can help our baby beat his condition before it gets worse. Not too dry, not too humid. I need to be close to a well connected airport. Plus a progressive place would be better for us as we are first gen immigrants. Would like to stay in EST, with CST being the second preference. Any suggestions?
What PC headset does everyone like for Zoom/Teams/etc? Never been able to make AirPods work right with Windows.
What’re the true specialties/differentiators at the big firms? I know smaller firms have clearly defined, defensible offerings (eg SKP is great at pricing), but amongst the massive firms that do everything (MBB and B4+ACN), what’re the firm specific specialties (continued)?
So I posted on LinkedIn that our firm was hiring, and a friend responded asking for a referral. They are a great person and friend, but an awful worker…what would you do here? I don’t want to be an a$$hole but I also don’t feel good about putting my reputation on the line by referring them.
If I started a lawsuit everytime a client or another lawyer called me "sweetheart," I'd probably have to start my own company because there'd be nowhere left for me to work
Based on the newest news in the ask coo channel in NAMR - how does this translate to someone who is in the top of their salary band right now? Does it mean they will give us an off cycle salary review and adjust? Or?

Has anyone ever left a tax advisory role, specifically working in the deal space, to join a pure management consulting firm? If so, do you feel the tax skills you had helped your transition?
Has anyone ever been hired for a job you were definitely not qualified for? How did it go? I have been interviewing for a position with a higher title + different industry + different role than what I am doing today and somehow I keep moving on to the next round. Am I just imposter syndrome-ing myself or is this a bad idea?
My husband and I have admitted to each other on numerous occasions since the pandemic started that we are extremely thankful that we didn’t end up having kids. We watch our coworkers struggle with balancing work and raising kids and realize we dodged a bullet. We are happy with our lives where we can travel in normal times, and are not tied down by children. This has been a major breakthrough for both of us to recognize and express our relief. So, there’s one bright side to the pandemic.
