Just pay $45 to get to the lounge. Now I hope Chase Reserve reimburses it as they told me
Wife and I are on H1B making combined income of about $370k, with $300k in cash savings. Green card will likely take decades so not really something to depend on. Given all the uncertainty that comes with living in US on visa, where do you invest?
Any one gotten any updates from EY LAW about H1B decisions ? I got fast tracked and I’m pretty sure it’s been 15 days already
Currently on short term disability in CA and trying to figure out what the tax situation is. It looks like they don’t take out taxes, so should I set that aside? I can’t find any info on whether it’s tax-free income but I definitely don’t want to assume incorrectly
When you're sick as bleep, but you're too afraid to take the time away bc everyone is up against it, but then you realize, everyone is always up against it... at all times. Good times
Aren’t we supposed to get an update on h1b lottery results by today ? Immigration page says week of 11/29
I didn’t realize that short term disability leave claims are not pre-approved. The insurance company may or may not approve after you already stop showing up to work
I’m the one whose ex won’t pay for college - and I have an update. My ex texted me today that he and his wife are buying our son a car (!!) for Christmas. On the one hand, it’s one less expense for me. On the other hand, my ex won’t pay for college and he owes me at least $10K for previous medical expenses, but he can find money for a car - which is a “fun” expense that will get him brownie points with our son. Whatever - my son benefits, but talk about a “Disneyland Dad.” Ugh.
Is it possible to use the Amex gift cards (Cathy cash, applause awards) to trade in a brokerage account? I'm guessing the answer is no. Curious if anyone has made it work.
24F and I have never found someone I’m compatible with long term. Finally met someone recently & we hit it off very well (I was so excited!!) but as we got to know each other over a month, our fundamental values & differences became more obvious. I’ve been single my entire life and I am sick of people asking why I’ve never had a relationship. How much do you actually compromise in finding a partner?
Hey mamas, need some advice. What do you do for back-up childcare when your kid is sick? We recently put our baby in daycare and it seems like every week, she’s getting some kind of cold, rash… and we have to take her out. Don’t have family near so that’s not an option. I’m wfh for now but not sure how to still be productive and care for her.
sick of crazy roommates and shitty apartments, is it possible to get a studio below $1900 without living too far from Manhattan? any tips/advice appreciated! (lease is up in July)
The trusts and estates bowl is not very active, so thought I’d post here. We are in the middle of updating our will/trust. We don’t have any close family that could take care of our kids if we died. Our closest friend lives in Brazil. We would love to have her take care of the kids - but don’t know if there is any way around immigration laws to have that happen if she were willing to move to US. My Google searches haven’t turned up an answer.
How’s Marakon doing these days? Currently at another T2 shop and love strategy work, but am sick of the PMO and Op Model work my firm’s been pigeonholing me into - worth a move?
I can’t function. I don’t have energy to do the smallest things. All I want to do is sleep. I don’t have to feel pain or deal with life when I sleep. I left my job because of this. I have a history of clinical depression and this is the worst episode I’ve ever experienced. I made an appointment with a therapist and to get on meds. Do I qualify for state disability even though I quit my job?
I'm a self-contained teacher of about 9 students with differing levels of autism or intellectual disability. If the board decides that our school is going all virtual, how am I going to teach them??? They require different accommodations at school they don't have at home..
Anyone here with recent H1B Dropbox experience?

Might be dumb but how do you make sure you don’t overcontribute to Roth or 401k for 2021? Will my contributions automatically go towards 2022 when the limits have been hit or do I have to manually change? (Using Vanguard if it matters)
KPMG, how do you change your 401k elections before your bonus gets paid out? I don't want any of my bonus to go into my 401k
Hearing about the ridiculous demands from the LA teachers union... Is anyone else frustrated with how political teaching has become? I'm not sure that I would teach at all if it was required to join the union. So sick of the pressure to back certain candidates, walk-outs, and viewpoints. My district has a negotiating body affiliated with the NEA, but it's voluntary to be a member. I'm glad to live in a state with options.
Would anyone be willing to help me / give advice for an interview I have coming up for a strategy consultant role? Most of my experience is tech consulting and I really want to kill this interview

I’m rolling off my project at work. Right now, I’m not seeing any exciting healthcare projects. I feel like I’m going to have to take a nonhealthcare project to keep working. I also have some healthcare startups recruiting me. I just started in consulting 6 months ago. Should I stay in consulting and hold out for a healthcare project or look into the new company reaching out to me?
The Weather Channel keeps running an As Seen On TV ad for something called "Hurricane Spin Broom".... seems a little ill timed on their part
6.2% raise - rated 2 and promoted from C to SC... how would anyone be satisfied with that and the increased responsibilities that come with it? Time to be listen to those LinkedIn recruiters
Editing my cv for FAANG strategy roles (specifically Google and Facebook). Any tips on what to emphasise? Mckinsey + IB background with LBS EMBA; South African so would need that visa sponsership.
Any 🐠 have open consulting jobs? My friend is leaving his current role as a conflict analyst and is looking to pivot. Great transferable skills but no opening in my company.
