Why don’t more people put 20% down on a property and rent it out so the other 80% is paid for by someone else while they active equity? Is there something I’m missing?

SALARY CUTS, HUH! Thoughts on how you’re handling it?

Anyone work at UHY? What's the culture like? How are the hours in busy season /non busy season? Do you work from home at all? I know they are back in the office. What's the dress code (I'm used to jeans and a golf shirt lmao)? Do the managers welcome new methods of preparing returns? Are they afraid of tech / make you prove out your formulas?

If I run scrum/standup meetings for my team, go through our dev board (Jira), keep track of people's work in OPS and Dev. Does that mean I am in between a scrum master/PM? My position is pretty vague (Associate Engineer). I am kind of stuck in between technical and non-technical and really don't know where to start if I am wanting to pursue a career in either, BA/PM or scrum master. Any tips?

Roth IRA eligibility question: I expect my gross HHI this year to be 214k between my wife and I. This is over the Roth IRA limit of 208k. But I’m wondering if by applying the standard deduction of 24k, would that bring us back under the income limit? I’ve already contributed money to my Roth IRA and trying to figure out if I’m going to need to back that out

Does anyone here have any guidance or experience in moving from big pharma to VC-backed biotech/ med-tech/ next gen healthcare companies on the west coast? TIA Former consultant with 3+ YOE at 2 big pharma after my consulting stint. Now I am looking for something more exciting, with more ownership, more nimble and of course the equity upside. (Ps If you don’t have anything valuable to add, it is better to hold off on your opinion) Comp does not matter, due to my partner’s high income.

Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities?

Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?

To everyone interviewing, to hopefully calm some nerves: The process is really long. Not hearing back from the recruiter for a few days, or even weeks, is completely normal. There can be multiple weeks between rounds and then multiple weeks before you get feedback. Don’t think too much into it. There is no indication of positive or negative by no response. On average it takes 3+ months, and usually 2+ application attempts, to get hired. Good luck! 🍀

I think public accounting has made it where I only look at the negatives. I’m at my parents and my dad was doing a project and I find myself picking apart what he did and wanting to say this this and this are wrong rather than looking at the project and saying it looks good overall
