NH. Tax free.

Rates are around 2.2 on average which is higher, but if you mess with primary vs secondary residences, the lack of income taxes more than makes up for it.

vineyard/nantucket/cape if you can afford it and want it for summer primarily. if year round usage Maine then maybe RI. VT if you want it for primarily fall/winter. Hard pass from me on NH and CT

Newport, Martha’s Vineyard, somewhere along the water

Lake Winnepesaukee. 

Currently in the process of buying a place in NH, I'm going to make it my primary residence and set up the place I am currently renting as a business address.

NH Seacoast or maybe Winthrop, MA

Thank you!

Over the holiday shut down I want to really do some things to have alone time and relax. Anyone have a recommendation for a great spa anywhere that’s easy to get to? Either in NYC or an easy place to get to outside? I would love a spot with a serenity room and with hot tubs etc. please share anything you know and if you recommend a specific massage therapist or treatment or anything. Or if you have other spots like Buddhist temples or anything where I can get some relaxation. Thanks!

I had multiple mediations recently. I do management side employment law. Overall I’m walking away feeling like what the heck are we paying the mediators for? I’m tired of the mediators saying they don’t want to hear about the merits of the case. The merits are DIRECTLY tied to the amount of settlement authority I have. I feel like our clients are getting worked way more than the plaintiffs side. Also plaintiffs have followed up every single settlement with “can we get the funds before holiday?”

I’m in industry with 3 direct reports and another 6 indirect reports. What small holiday gift can I send them? Trying to stay under $250 total.

Hey all - need some important advice. I feel like I under-bargained base/starting salary at Slalom. Got 79K base with up to 8% bonus in a low-to-medium cost of living area as an AC. I'm 1 year out of college (top 40 uni) with ~1 year of NON-consulting experience (mostly programming/software dev. experience at some small companies). How should I expect to increase the salary up to six-figures for the next 2-3 years?
