Looking at the Cartier Tank Must in L. I’m a first time luxury watch buyer, and I would really love to get the XL because of the movement, but it’s way too big for my wrist. I have the opportunity to get the Solar Beat, or the regular Must in quartz, but don’t know which to choose. Any insights on one vs the other?

Thoughts on getting a prenup for a first marriage? As background, my parents are both lawyers and basically everyone in my family is divorced so I have a warped view and would consider getting one. However, my SO is a non-lawyer and is against them.

People who use different virtual backgrounds for the zoom camera , what’s the trick. Every time I try that, there’s too much blur and it’s distracting. I get a halo too.
One hellish project wrapped up yesterday, on my way to a Caribbean beach vacation 🎈🎉🍷💃🏻✈️
I have about $2k in commuter benefits but I’ll be moving to working completely remotely, what can I do with my commuter benefit money? I don’t think I can cash it out...
The travel, points, and expensed meals were a big factor on why I chose to pursue consulting. Since travel projects will be reduced for the foreseeable future what advice do you have for a first year consultant?
Can you start your own company while working with Big4? if yes are there any restrictions
Super nice that all these companies are offering to reimburse their employees travel for abortion services, but I feel bad since we are not the ones who really need it. Typically corporate employees can find a way to pay to get the services they need. Low income people not so much.
Does anyone work at capital one as a business analyst? What tips do you have for someone trying to break in? Would you be willing to get on the phone with me and provide some advice based on my background? I just got laid off and really would like to make the pivot
Does Deloitte has "external" consulting positions? I mean one is not a regular employee but provides consulting services for Deloitte clients billable by hour.
Is it the same as Project Delivery Model that Deloitte hires?
All jokes aside, how do I get a job with Google? Pls refrain from posting witty/condescending/snarky remarks. Tks.
Anyone use a pro microphone and mixer to communicate over Teams/Zoom? Tired of trash audio (having to repeat myself, knowing people are hearing me smash keyboard as I talk and take notes, etc) and thinking about pulling the trigger but wondering if the upgrade is worth it... i.e. do you get significantly better engagement from people if they hear you more clearly?
I'm sorry to hear the news about layoffs. If you haven't been affected, I hope it stays that way. Otherwise, good luck on your exit process and job hunt fellas. It's not an easy job.

Any ladies or anyone at all done a solo trip to Cabo San Lucas? Wondering if there are concerns with safety or anything else. Planning to be there in a couple weeks
Have only gotten ~16hrs of sleep since Monday and am still working right now on slides while crying on and off uncontrollably bc exhaustion . I'm supposed to be on pto tomorrow cont.
This weekend, I plan on breaking in this new fluffy robe and slippers. All day, every day.
PTO means time off.
Not kind of time off. Not "hey could you do this one thing for me". Not "trying to save the client money so use your PTO but you'll be working". Not "let's turn everything into an emergency so they have to work".
It isn't a suggestion that they are unavailable. They are unavailable.
If you don't respect their time off, then why should anyone respect yours?
Do not be reaching out to your teammates that are on PTO.
Whatever it is, it can wait.
In 2020 I promise to stop FW CPA’s (aka glorified personality deficit sociopaths), to stop acting like staffers above me are wise sages & to cop more slide decks and Visio presentations. Horrah!!! 🤘🏼
