Try to skip procurement- instead try to influence an executive that can help sponsor your case with procurement, else forget it

For people who live and plan to buy a home in HCOL cities, what’s your savings strategy for a down payment?

Currently 26, make $120K and put about 10% post tax into a Roth 401k and then anywhere from 20-40% into VOO. Goal is to be able to afford a down payment for a $1.5M home in 5-7 years.

Sometimes I get a bit concerned I’m not putting enough towards retirement, but with how expensive homes, can’t really budget any more towards it.

Why do companies exploit their staff by giving you the workload of 2-3 people, wait for you to burn out or resign then try and counter offer you or offer to provide additional support, when you’ve asked for it so many times in the past? Is it because they want to see how long they can get away with it, or is it you’re seen as cheap and efficient resource and they can take advantage? If you value someone why wouldn’t you give them the tools to do their jobs??

Given the Supreme Court is expected to ban affirmative action in June 2023, am I correct in thinking that it would be more advantageous for me, an Indian-American male, to apply in fall 2023 vs fall 2022? I am targeting HSW. I have a 710 GMAT and 3.6 undergrad GPA in Econ from an Ivy. I’m just looking at the UC Berkeley and UCLA data after California banned affirmative action in 1996 and seems like the Asian % increased significantly the year after the ban took effect.

1st year associate in Texas. How/who do I ask to switch from litigation to transactional within my firm? I’ve been here for 6 weeks and billed a total of 10 hours. There appears to be a real lack of litigation work in general at the firm (and partners have told as much transparently) but they keep telling us to just wait and work will be coming. Is this lack of litigation work normal at other firms?

4: Are fitness classes intimidating and if so why?
