One basic question on long term travel. The income is shown as my income plus whatever I spent as part of deloitte due to travel. Due to this I'll fall in higher tax bracket. So will deloitte pay for that additional tax that Ill end up paying on my actual salary due to higher bracket taxes?

Is it worth having a travel industry CC (ie Marriott)? I used to travel all the time for work but won’t be anymore and don’t plan to in the future so I’m not going to accumulating hotel points but don’t have enough for 100% free stays and want to start booking some trips in the near future. I currently only have CSR and CF.
I need to get 3,000 PQPs between now and Nov 30 to re-qualify for United 1K. Anyone have any great ideas how to do this - or know of any domestic flights that maximize the PQPs?

Any agencies giving people time off for the one-year anniversary of WFH? I heard WK is completely closed today.
I need some help. I need to lose 40 lbs. 5’2, 170 lbs. i started working out more but then stopped because I was miserable doing it. Decided to focus on diet and I just end up binge eating. WFH also makes it harder to be active esp when working out (the cardio at least) makes me so miserable. I do walks sometimes but that obviously doesn’t burn enough to mean much. At this point idk what to do. Keto helped in the past but now I can’t even find the drive to do that! What do I do?
Class of 2020 graduate. I am working in-house in technology transactions/commercial but I’ve been trying to get my foot in the door in the privacy/cybersecurity area. I have my CIPP/US and I’m in all the Privacy groups/bookclubs/etc with my bar association. Still absolutely no luck when applying for positions. Any suggestions? Would you recommend getting a privacy analyst role first to get some experience?
Hi all, I have interview coming up for the “Application Modernization & Innovation” group. Can anyone shed light on what type of work/clients/WLB etc? thanks!

Are there any big law firms which choose not to follow the lockstep compensation model closely?
"The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people's expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn't care if you are a white person who likes black people;...

How do you know when you have enough money? I got laid off in the spring, but don’t feel a pressing need to get a new job right away. Have 3 rental properties, all paid off, get about $3k/mth net from that, have about $200k in a 401k and another $200k in more-liquid investments. I spend less than $2k/mth and feel happy and comfortable. Not married and no kids... but would like that one day, so thinking of maybe saving some more money for that. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice?
Since having kid number two 8. months ago I have had so much back pain and not been able to sleep and hate my mattress more than before…. Finally convinced my husband we needed a new proper mattress (not his 7 year old $700 mattress!!!) & today we went and bought a tempurpedic. SOOOO EXCITED. I hope we truly love it and I can actually sleep again.
Does anyone else feel that itch or that in the heart feeling of wanting to go elsewhere and explore options, places and people?? Maybe I’m just feeling this because I’m in a very good job with a good boyfriend and a new home.... or maybe it’s the year long pandemic...but I have this nagging sense that I need to get out and live the wild. Try things and go places and explore art and culture. I’m terrified of living a regular, predictable life. Is it more crazy to go? Or more crazy to stay?
Leave for another consulting firm even tho I’m up for promotion in a few months at my current firm? Pros of leaving are better work life balance, not stuck in one industry, minimal travel. Cons are comp - I’d be making slightly less base than what I would after promo (tho higher then right now) and significantly less bonus
Met a super cool guy on the plane that works in Finance that I wish I could be friends with in my travel city but I lost his business card and don't know his number now 😫
