family annual expense at approx 100k. Emergency savings currently at 60k. Brokerage account at 60k as well. Already have a house but would like to buy a bigger one in 5 years. Should we put the extra money each month towards savings account (which pays 0.6% interest) or stop contributing to savings and put more in investing? Looks like neither is good option at this time
What is the market practice for expense policy for global consultant trainings? Do you guys get to cover transport, fly on premium seats, use data roaming, etc?

I'm thinking about leaving the advertising world for qual research. I love being a strategist but I loath the client BS and the internal agency egos. I found a research company that does interesting bespoke qual that will still allow me to be creative and strategic. Plus an actual life outside of work. But it would mean a 20-40% pay cut. Has anyone ever been in this position or have some advice?
This is how my day started. I come in this morning and the first thing my boss says to me is how when he hired me he didnt think I was beautiful. He was glad for that since no one would accuse him of hiring me for my looks. But now Im beautiful and that means trouble for him so he should fire me for that. I’m like oh you’re gonna fire me bc of my looks, interesting. I’m literally cringing over this and I’m honestly just angry/upset/annoyed. Took all of me not to walk out.

I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Moral of the post: there is none, I just want to brag about how happy I am now 😂

Hi all, Need your advice. One of our worker’s wife is fighting cancer. We know that he needs to take care of her and work the same time to cover medical bills. So we decided to collect money for him. Should I do it secretly and only let him know after I’m done collecting money or should I get his permission first? I need to figure out which way would be less uncomfortable for him. Thanks!

Hi D&A 🐟, I’ve been thinking of doing a career pivot from cyber security to data science. My current role is very technical and have experience with Python, PowerShell, AWS (SAA cert), Azure (Security Engineer cert in progress), and a bunch of other cyber security related technical skills.
