To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night. He views them as an investment and an "asset" on the books for his future family. He also has grandparents who had to finance their trip to America by selling their jewels. I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?
So I was given x$ for relocation and was asked to submit receipts. Can I expense my security deposit towards this?

My boss treats me like his secretary. I’m the only woman on the team, and he makes me handle HIS expense report twice a month, all the new hire onboarding, and just about anything he thinks his male employees are too busy to do. I’m a seasoned IT professional with two decades of experience and can code in 15 different languages. This frustrates me to no end but the exposure I’m getting to new tech skills is amazing so I can’t just walk away! Suggestions on how I can get him to respect me?!

Plan on moving to Dallas Texas next year. Currently with Deloitte MTS team and will be a senior at that time. Im wondering how the culture of the office is there? Also, how is the culture of the other firms. Im not opposed to moving firms. Just finished working three 80 hour weeks, so that would be a big plus to find a team where that is not expected on a regular basis!

So I have applied for 21 jobs in the last 3 weeks and I have had just 1 recruiter reach out and no interviews yet. Most of them are for jobs I feel I am a strong fit for. Is it a clear indicator that my resume is not attractive? Or is this level of striking out expected?

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued

PwC CMAAS offer in hand, but one thing holding me back from accepting at the moment is the work/life balance. I’m transferring from audit. I understand work/life is a little crazy right now in CMAAS. Is this expected to cool down? What were hours like before things got crazy? Better than B4 audit hours? Thanks!
