I think it’s undervalued. Keytruda is very good and their pipeline is under estimated. Until 2024ish I’m not moving out unless I see big issues. PE ratio is also good compared to industry and PEG ratio as well, only ABBV is comparable lower in PEG. Would love to hear the other side on this.

I don't agree with it but that's the other side right now. "Boomer" stocks aren't cool. Makes me feel like it's a great time to move into them tbh.

Should I ask for a raise? My 6-month review is next week and I’m thinking about asking for a raise. I’ve never asked for one before and normally would never think of asking for one until at least 12 months but in the last couple of months my role and responsibilities have enhanced significantly. I don’t have much experience as this is my first job in advertising (comms background) and I don’t want to come off as naive or ignorant! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!

It’s no secret that people in IB, Big Law, and other super high paying but terrible WLB jobs are miserable. Anyone in one of those fields will tell you that they are despite the money and that the money isn’t life changing unless you stay at least a decade or two. So why do people still do it? The only reasonable argument I’ve seen (at least for IB) is to do it for 2 years and exit to something better but that ends up being PE for most which has similarly terrible WLB and misery. What gives?

As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp. America, there’s so much that I wasn’t prepared for like 401k, investing, along with other things that increase your TC that aren’t bonuses or your base salary or how to diversify your income. I’m 25 and I feel like there is SO much I still don’t know. Any good book recommendations/youtubers/podcasts that helps navigate this?

Has anyone here accepted an offer while the H-1B extension petition is still processing? I have an exploding offer, but don't feel comfortable taking it without first discussing my situation with my current employer, and I don't feel 100% safe discussing the matter with them while my extension petition hasn't been approved yet... My visa expires in early September, so I believe the petition should be approved soon

Need in-law advice. We’ve been very careful with COVID. Our children are too young to be vaccinated. We are visiting parents-in-law (elderly, vaccinated) and sister-in-law (her and her husband vaccinated, two small kids aren’t but they arrived early and are past incubation period). This is an isolated lake house. Turns out this whole other family is staying in the house. We weren’t informed. They are not vaccinated yet all are eligible. One, a camp counselor, is now ill w/ fever, cough, etc.
