Depends on where you live… where I live people don’t even lock their cars sometimes


I don’t lock my house. My house has been broken into. But both times they broke a window


I don’t mean for stealing. I want to be able to capture anyone for a hit and run. It’ll be in queens


BAH1, that’s probably the case. And the car should be fine.

McKinsey & Company Hi everyone. Hope all is well.

Time to get record high tonight.


So I’m on a case team where I’m the “anchor” aka most experienced member of the working team. It’s me, a fresh out of undergrad woman, and our day to day project leader. Technically he is supposed to be our manager but I’m ending up spending so much of my day to day time in addition to my own work checking the other woman’s work, answering her questions, screen-sharing stuff that I’m doing so she can learn, and sometimes I find it’s at the expense of me finishing my work on time. Also, when…


I have a coworker who is about to go on maternity leave. Our company is only offering her 4 weeks paid maternity leave. This is in Virginia. Curious what maternity leave/benefits other moms have received.

Could anyone elaborate on or point me in the direction for info on AUSAs, when it comes to restrictions on trading securities? I know the SEC is very strict and has a blanket rule for all attorneys, but not sure about DOJ attorneys (and whether it depends on what office/unit/section you’re in).

I m wondering how come people who are offered such big packages can't calculate even their own salary and keep posting guys what's my in-hand?

Shouldn't HRs reconsider the offers in these cases? Atleast I would.

Just share information as FYI guys I got this amazing offer period rather than using this type of tactics.


Guys, I’m losing my mind can someone please help me debug this?
So I’m trying to create a dependent drop down list that will(in a perfect world 🙂) pull up different office locations based on the team leader selected so it’s dynamic.

I just graduated and thanks to some scholarships, I have about 25k left over in a 529 plan my parents had been saving for me for college. I’m not thinking of going back to school in the near future - would I be better off leaving it there or taking it out and investing it (but pay 10% penalty plus taxes)?


Do you consider college savings funds as part of your net worth? I can see why you would but then your net worth would decrease pretty quickly once your kid(s) go to college.


Best tax advantaged accounts and financial things to consider for parents of newborns?

Looking at houses around $800k. Just got introduced to the idea of a jumbo loan…. I have about $125,000 in equity in my current house, which will probably be closer to $100k by the time closing is done. My local lender is requiring 20% down on a jumbo loan, which I don’t have. My first question is—does anyone know of a lender who doesn’t require 20% on a jumbo? Second, I have about $100k equity in a rental property but lender requires 40% down on investment properties for a HELOC. Help!
