Financial Planning Question: I’m planning on buying a house in the next 5 years. My current investment savings is 2/3’s retirement 1/3 towards a down payment for the house. I have no student loans/overhead so I can put a lot towards saving. From anyones experience should I shift my saving proportion more towards the house for the short term? I’m concerned that too much of my money will be tied up in my 401K

Does anyone know of any website that lets you filter in-house positions by those who allow remote work? I’m assuming this does not exist but wanted to see if any of y’all have any thoughts.
Aight holiday gifts/tips for staff (mainly my PA) - I had heard as junior that it’s $100 per class year, so for example if ur a 3rd year it’s $300 to your PA. Is that the norm for your firm too, and same rule all the way up to senior year (so 6th year is $600…?) I love my PA but this year with WFH I really did not give her any work, but also we all get paid more what with covid bonuses so it seems extra grinch to not pay out. What’s your plan?

Deciding between staying at Bain (Currently an AC2, would likely stay through a few years post-MBA) or exiting to growth equity and/or VC. I like Bain, but I also feel like the door to investing roles closes after AC2 year. Thoughts?
I’ve realized most people actually hate the big D, because lots of the people hired & top talent were near misses at MBB (final round etc.) and they resent the firm because of it. It’s a sad reality but it’s true.

Got my H1B transfer approved. Can someone please let me know when it’s okay to put in the 2 week notice? Fragomen just let me know that they received the physical copy of the I797 approval notice and will send it to you.

Timeline as followed if that helps anyone: Case received: 11/19/2021 Case approved: 11/23/2021
Started a new remote entry level job with very minimal training. I am fresh out of school and thinking what is the best way for me to learn my role, duties, and tasks with no training and being remote. How will I succeed if in order to do the job I need to be trained.
I’m so confused why we can’t just all get vaccinated, wear masks and continue living nicely. I don’t see a difference between getting vaccinated for covid and vaccinated for Polio? How’s there even an argument with all the data we have…
