Do you think agencies are hiring a larger percentage of freelancers to bypass their promises of improved parental leave, which are only available to full-time staff?

I currently make 60LPA in Hyderabad and my firm has an offer for 150k in Chicago. Is it worth? I am generally happy with the package in India and have good savings as I own my house in Hyderabad and I am not a lavish spender.

I’m unable to focus on work and I keep dropping the ball on some projects. I hate to put this on my personal life but I’ve experienced three family deaths (including a parent) and a death of a good friend all within the last five months. I feel like I should have taken significant time off but I think now it’s too late with end of the year financials etc. Does anyone have any tips on how to bounce back up?

Has anyone here decided you don't want kids? Just turned 34 married for 13 years. I still have no desire to have kids. I am okay with this life but sometimes wonder if I would feel some emptiness down the road. Please share your experience.
What age were you when you had each kid? I'm 32 and we are trying for our first. SO is 36. But the endless relentless lectures from the women of my family about why "it's so late! Hurry!

Just found out we’re having a third kid - any advice?? We have a 4 year old and a 2 year old.

Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?

Question: I currently have a bit over $3000 worth of VTI ETF shares. Now that I’ve crossed over the $3k mutual fund minimum threshold, will this ETF begin to act as a mutual fund, where I’ll have the ability to DCA at any dollar amount instead of the full cost of the share? Does it automatically convert to VTSAX shares?
