Does anyone here use an external computer camera with a light that they love? Sometimes the lighting in my home office can be pretty bad for video conference calls, especially when it’s cloudy or getting dark outside.
Can anyone provide insight as to what an EY-Parthenon super day looks like? How many interviews and how long? Do they still do the group case interview virtually?

I’m currently an SA2 but was offering a 6 month rotation working on product strategy for the firm with a promotion to Manager. Recruiter explained that It’d be at the same base pay with the potential of a raise in June, would you take just a title bump?
POV: 2 and s half months into a new job: position internal sales support. Request of SM to find all potential customers in 2 main areas of sales and send them the information of companies name as well as contact name and sort the info from most important company to least, all from scratch.
The SM knows I am new to the industry and have no previous experience in it.
Is this something normal to ask to have done? Is it normal to give a few days to hand in the requested information?
Love that I can actually call out sick from work now that I’m in house (vs before in big law)!
Just checked in to Sheraton Boston and was told
hotel is on strike! No food, no lounge, no cleaning services. Nada! WTH?! Why didn’t they warn us?! I would’ve booked another property. How many points?
All these years my fellow humans and I have been communicating with each other the wrong way (non-human.. unhuman?)... Thank you advertising people for always reminding us to be “human-centric.”

What do you think about bonds
Long time lurker first time poster hoping for your advice. I grew up super poor and managed to put myself through undergrad and business school. However, my post b-school job is not very high-paying ($120k CPG), and I have very little savings. What can I do at this point to maximize my net worth? Open to all suggestions: new job, investments, etc.
I know I'm preaching to the choir, but you really NEED to retire early!
Stupid question but I gotta ask. I’ve got like 30k sitting in a checking account, I feel like I should push it into VTI and forget about it, but for some reason I feel like a downturn is on the horizon and I don’t want to lose a chunk of it. Already have plenty in emergency fund, no debt. Already bought my 10k of iBonds.
Can I buy my first property and rent it out (so that it pays for itself) and still qualify to have my name added to my mom’s mortgage for refinancing purposes?
Do you sell stock to pay tax on gains now, to avoid a larger bill in future when salary is presumably higher?
(1/2) As my first full year of practice comes to a close, it looks like my pre-tax salary for this fiscal year year will be just short of $400k — after year end bonuses are distributed next month (the 400k figure also includes my low base, but 75% of it reflects bonus). As of now, before my bonus has come in, I’ve got 193k student loans, 60k in investments, and 20k in savings. How much of the bonus should I use to pay student loans, and how much should I contribute to my investment portfolio?
R.I.P. my portfolio
What are some of the best ways you have paid off student debt? I have 180k and I want to aggressively lay it off. For context, I am one year into my career and have spent these months getting rid of $20k of consumer debt. Want to be responsible and keep the momentum going.
In covid nasdaq dropped 29% from ATH. Now it's 27% from November ATH. Are we getting close to bottom or this bear market will ruin tech more
Anyone used/using HMBradley before for HYSA? They have a 3% rate which seems unreal in this economy. Just want to make sure it’s legit. It’s seems HMBradley is the marketer for Hatch Bank (FDIC insured). Any other recommendations for HYSA?
I have a small chunk of money ($40k), should I take advantage of Calis first time home buyer programs and buy a house? 31 y/o, living in LA.
Need an opinion on the Vanguard VIGAX/VIGIX. I’m index riding with that fund but am wondering if I should shift my risk and go with VT or another Vanguard fund. Thoughts?
Is there ever a circumstance where it makes sense to buy a home if you’re not sure you’ll be there 5+ years? What criteria would need to be in place for it to make sense to do that? Currently renting - paying too much - lease is up in Summer 2022 and trying to decide next move. See some townhomes for sale that look great and mortgage would be less than current rent.
Just moved to Florida to be with family. Should I put all my retirement savings into Roth 401k / Roth IRA now that I don’t have state income taxes?
How do I invest in index funds? I have $10k. I want to set it and forget it and check on it once a year. You can recommend a website, person/team, app, or whatever you use. 👍🏻
Or, give me another thing to do with the $10k.
How much savings does a 40 year old realistically need to retire?
For sake of discussion, let’s assume house is paid off, need to purchase decent healthcare, you have a healthy 401k, and are single with no kids.
I’ll guess that you need at least $500,000?
