Partner called me on my vacation to scold me for “not handling a deadline before leaving for vacation” for a deposition that the client didn’t want going forward with anyway. He also mentioned two other “deadlines” that I missed when in fact they were done. The depo was ultimately taken off calendar, so it was never “missed”. Partner then sent me an invite for a disciplinary meeting with him for the day I get back, again while I’m still on vacation. Any advice aside from lateraling?
Any idea on wlb in the internal audit/ IT audit team in Amazon. Is it as bad as the tech and development teams - long hours, shitty wlb? How good are the benefits offered?
Thoughts on "unlimited PTO" policies? I'm guessing it could be good, or terrible, depending on who's in charge of approving leave requests...

Please help. Husband was in Canada (and still is) at the time his H1B was approved, so he received I797B instead of the usual I797A approval. Since I797B comes without I-94 attached at the bottom, his H1B status becomes valid only after he gets his visa stamped from home country and enters the US on H1B. Due to COVID, we don’t intend to make a trip to India anytime soon. Will his employer be able to start the PERM/I-140 process without him having H1B status and while he’s still working in Canada?

Apologies if this is a silly question - New analyst here and trying to get a handle on my finances and retirement portfolio. I’m familiar with the rough sequence of saving being: 3-6 months HYSA, Company match 401k, Roth IRA, HSA, 401k max, personal brokerage (Pls correct me if i’m incorrect here). My question is: Are you expected to invest as much money as you can into each step before proceeding to the next, or do you allocate a portion of your paycheck to each of these steps simultaneously?

I’m happy at my current Big 4 company, love my project, feel fairly compensated (88k with 2 years experience). But actively looking for other roles. A competitor’s recruiter reached out and asked me what my compensation band would be. Would you continue to talk to the recruiter and interview if you don’t like the competitor? Is there anything I could get out of having a conversation with the recruiter?
I messed up. Told my roommate I would contribute to pay for a small couch since she sold the one she brought to our apartment with her for $ (got laid off). I am 21 and on a crazy strict budget. She is showing me $500-800 couches, while I was thinking of Facebook marketplace couches. If I could, I would give her the $ in the blink of an eye, but I literally CAN’T 😭 How do I tell her this after I already said I would? I know, I messed up here - salvageable?

My father apptly invited my cousin to thanksgiving. The cousin who took my baby name bc she “wasn’t sure it would get used given ‘my situation” and “wanted to make sure it got used since it’s such a beautiful name.” So I guess I’m having dinner across from a 7 month old baby with my dream baby’s name. Super weird to resent an infant on thanksgiving, but that’s where we are..
Potential transfer from an internal finance role at B4 to ACN digital finance strategy. For background I’m a third year project controller at B4. My friend is referencing me for the consultant position at ACN. Is it worth the shot given I don’t have client facing experience? If so, any tips on how to brand myself without that experience?
How much stock do you put on benefits? I have two offers with stark differences in benefits. Job 1: role I want, but benefit sucks (2 weeks paternity leave, 20% coinsurance). Job 2: role is okay but higher level and great benefits (16 weeks paternity, 0% coinsurance, 5 more days of vacation). Total comp is the same though. I wonder if I should just focus on role but Job 2 is a large company, so I can move around after 2-3 years I’d expect. Thoughts?
