New to United States - I noticed that my pay checks comprise approx. 64 % of my annual compensation( after 6% 401K and health insurance) . Is that normal or have I messed up something in tax forms?

I have $4,000 in my emergency fund and $1,100 left in total consumer debt (a credit card balance at a 10% interest rate). I’m tempted to pay it off right now, but in light of what’s going on in (cont)
I’m trying to book a rental car with National for a personal trip using EY discount. It doesn’t give me the option to elect it as a leisure trip in the app like Hertz does. Any insights on this?
I want to confirm, Canadian with 1 shot (second scheduled for fall). I can travel to Greece with a negative PCR test? This is what I see in the guidelines but want to check against others’ experience. Will see if I can get a second vaccine before then but can’t count on it.
Got the Delta notification for weather issues in LGA tomorrow...who is adjusting their flights?
Oh thank goodness you confiscated my Tom's toothpaste, TSA. I was planning on whitening someone to death on my flight later.
How long do you think it’d take to “explore” Chicago? Have opportunity to work remote from US and would love to travel from city to city maybe every year or every 6 months and wondering if a year is enough time to get a good experience out of Chicago

Recommendations for obgyn in the northern Virginia area( fairfax and around)? I’d love the name of specific doctors as opposed to just a practice name, please. I have United healthcare, if that helps.
Have anyone taken flight lessons before?
I always thought those working on their laptops in the terminal were suckers, then I realized I’d much rather work in the terminal/in flight than on the weekend
I’m so sleep deprived I took someone else’s bag from the airport to an airport hotel before my international flight tomorrow. Now I’m riding the shuttle back to return it and hopefully get by bag 🙁🙁

What are some tips for interview prep? I’m looking for a senior accounting advisory position at b4. Thanks!
In house lawyers for global companies: do you expect your international travel to rebound - ever? I am at a firm where I practice in government enforcement and investigations, and I always saw myself going in house to do this work and travel abroad frequently. Are those days gone because of zoom?
Recently laid off from KPMG audit after 3 years. I’m on an H1B so odds are tough. If anyone could help me with a referral to a transaction services/restructuring role at another services firm or middle market bank, would be grateful. I know it’s a long shot but thought it’s worth posting.

I'm getting my MBA from the University of Arizona, how prestigious is the AACSB accreditation? And do MBB or Big 4 Consultant firms care about it?
Anybody switched from plaintiff to defense later in their career? If so, which did you prefer? Also, I’ve done plaintiff work my entire career - outside of billable hours, in your experience what are some frustrations/challenges that are unique to the defense side? I’m a 10 year attorney looking at some defense jobs right now and they seem a lot more stable with more upward mobility than anything I’ve experienced at a plaintiff firm. Thanks in advance for any comments offered.
So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments. While I understand it takes time to adjust to the culture, its seems like all I have witnessed is resistance to change. I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?
Kind of regret going into accounting/audit lol. Was anyone else told “accounting can do finance but finance can’t do accounting.” I was under the impression that transitioning to finance would be easy, but all the exit ops I see are senior accountant, internal audit, accounting advisory, etc.
How long can you do the weekly travel before you need a break? I just hit 20 weeks including lots of Fridays at the client and weekend trips and wondering if it’s unreasonable to ask for a remote week
