Does anyone else feel like they are just falling behind with the price increases for our big ticket items such as cars and homes? Like I started working in 2017 and I realized I couldn’t make it the way I wanted on $105k so now I’m at around $250k and I got some rentals but all of the homes in my area have doubled in price since 2020 so from $500k to $1m or above so I feel like I’m still just as financially tight now and cars seem just as unobtainable as when I first started.
I have the next 20 days off from work and in an extreme lockdown in Germany. What can I do to stay productive, learn, grow/ build a hobby from home? I'm 25 and do not want to waste this vacation doing nothing at home
So, I declined to attend the holiday party at work and I explained my reasoning to ONE co-worker. (I'm a Christian but don't celebrate Xmas because I believe it's rooted in paganism.) I guess word spread because this morning, someone forwarded me an email from an angry colleague saying that I don't understand the Bible and I shouldn't claim to be Christian...should I report it to HR? I feel conflicted because I don't want to cause further trouble and get the person who sent it to me involved
When people say don’t bring anything to a holiday party or housewarming or whatever... do you still bring something? I feel weird showing up empty handed.
Hey friends! I hope everybody has had a productive week and had an awesome weekend for those who enjoyed their holiday! This question is specifically for Amazon Web Services in sales. So I am currently a potential candidate as an AAE. I was told that I would in the future have to prepare a mock deck and deal with objections. Has anybody had to prepare them and what was the scenario? Thanks everyone!
Got in a spat with my SO. He didn’t want to wake up to drop me to the airport at 330am and said it was unreasonable that I was asking that of him. He helped arrange a taxi service (we’re on vacation). I am still pretty miffed that he thinks he’s in the right to avoid being inconvenienced. I woulda woken up and taken him and it’s not about saving dollars. Sometimes you show love by being willing to be inconvenienced. F here fwiw
Soccer fans- how are you planning to approach the World Cup next winter to watch games around work? Like are you going to take PTO for US games, are you already scheduling time off in Nov/Dec as a place keeper, etc. I want to take time off for US games but obviously it’s still a while til schedules come out.
😖 Me (8am): hey guys, here’s some comments but they are not urgent, and today’s a holiday. Tmw is fine. Associate (930am): here u go.
What’s the best camera to get? If you take pictures with your phone, what phone takes the best quality photos? I’m going on vacation and trying to get something that will be easy to use.
Would like to take a 2 week international vacation over the holidays (end of December through beginning of January). Can’t decide where to go. Suggestions? Live in US.
Vacation ideas? Keep in mind I'm poor
Anyone studying over the Fourth of July holiday? 🙌🏻
Currently traveling abroad in England for a few weeks for personal vacation, and I’ve been nothing but anxious since getting here (cont.)
Any advice on how to go on vacation (beach) with two kids (1 and 3)? My husband and I like adventure and I can't imagine leaving kids with relatives.. do you hire a caretaker for when we want to do more adventurous things during the day?
I have been at my company for a little less than 4 years now. I’ve had the third highest sales last year out of a team of 50 and consistently the highest outbound calls per week. They told me I can start WFH once I hit $1mil in profit, but then rescinded right before I hit the goal. They have also denied simpler request like time off, when I know they have approved this before for others. I feel super unappreciated, but the money is great. I’m not sure if I should look elsewhere and start over?
Any suggestions for breathable, comfortable, stylish shoes for a tropical vacation with lots of walking in cities? My feet get super sweaty
🎄How do you plan to recharge over the holiday? Are you taking time off? Do you plan to reset or rest at all before the New Year? Drop your plans or ideas below! 👇
Have an upcoming PTO in May, last time I met LDR SO was in Feb. If I propose to fly to meet him in May and he disagrees, is it time to break up?

How do you guys stop burning out when people are always so quick to plunge you into things that you know nothing about and you need to manage and guide others?
Who do you usually put down for references when a company asks for them? Applying for another company but don’t know who to put down as I don’t want to put previous or current employers
How is work life balance at Capital One?
My job is chill right now and few reasons to complain except low raises, but I still get bitter when thinking of abusive past employers. How to stop ruminating?
@Deloitte or @Capgemini invent for London? I've been offered a top Manager role in Deloitte (Human Capital) with the view to progress to SM within the next year and a Senior Management role in Capgemini Invent. Offers are still being prepared but what are your thoughts? Would be great to hear from people that work there. Thanks!
What’s your best nontraditional “Somebody I know made a fortune doing blank” story (I.e. reselling tickets, only fans, nail salons)
is it wise to have 90% of your vanguard 401k in stocks? The breakdown: Vanguard Developed Markets Index Fund - 25% DFA U.S. Sustainability Core 1 Portfolio - 25% T. Rowe Price Emerging Markets Equity Trust; Class D - 11% Vanguard Mid-Cap Index Fund Institutional Plus Shares - 9% stocks are down overall, but are these wise investments? I am a 25 year old.
What is consultant salary payband for Deloitte Consulting in HCOL area like SF or LA for homegrowns?
How can you be more confident at work? I am constantly told I am doing well and have received multiple forms of formal recognition ($, promo, etc.) but the people around me seem just better. I always feel like I am not good enough. Do I need therapy?
question for women: what is your open and honest opinion when people refer to a group as “you guys” in emails/chats? I’ve been very cognizant to use gender neutral pronouns but I’m curious if anyone really cares (I understand there might be no right or wrong but I’m curious where the majority stands) Also, is it weird if I email a group with only women and say “Ladies,…” I know that sounds weird but if it’s a group of men I’ll say “Gentlemen,….”
