Does anyone know how people who already filed their AOS (i-485) will be affected by this? I'm vaccinated but my AOS was filed in March along with medical examination and I'm concerned this will delay the process even more :( Will we get RFEs after October 1st? https://www.natlawreview.com/article/cdc-issues-new-covid-19-vaccination-requirements-green-card-applicants
For those at large tech companies with ESPP, do you sell immediately or hold? I've been holding but realize this is going to lopside my portfolio pretty quickly since I'm maxing my contributions. But also feel like it's a pretty safe investment, and worth holding for one year for better tax benefits. Thoughts?
What kind of savings account should I open up when I’m 20? I already have a ROTH IRA and maxed it out and I have $32k in my personal brokerage account (60-70% invested in ETFs and the rest is random stocks). I don’t know if I can invest in a 401k since I’m a college student and just interning right now. I have around $20k in cash lying around and I want to save enough to get a house (~$300-400k) in 1-3 years.
Personal tax Q: -Recently accepted job offer, starting new job in a couple of weeks -Spouse had a medical incident last week -Havent fully funded my HSA yet so I wanna route some emergency money thru there -Bills havent shown up yet -Should I drop money in the HSA now or wait til I start the new job and presumably get a new HSA plan? I've never changed jobs with an HSA before and have no idea how hard it's going to be to get into the account after I leave
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! It's going to be impossible soon!!" is driving me insane. Ideally I would want it to be planned and natural, not IVF or anything, but you never know.
How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
When folks provide total compensation numbers....does that include just base + bonus or base + bonus + pension + 401k match

Does anyone have any tips to get back into a healthy lifestyle after giving yourself a break for a few days. I had been doing really well for the last 2-3 months, was feeling great and lost about 20lbs. I went away for the weekend and didn’t go crazy but let myself have cocktails and dessert and now I’m having a hard time getting back into the habits I had developed. I feel sick but I keep making bad choices
I think my daughter has selective mutism. Any other parents here with a child with selective mutism have any recommendations on how I start this journey (books to read, tactical strategies, etc)
I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
Any advice for "working remotely" with a 9 hour time difference? Ideally trying to take a vacation
Not so fun one: drank too much at the holiday party and feel like a total idiot. Nothing happened but still, lesson learned. Any advice on how to recover?

Are airlines doing food/beverage service right now? I have delta and American flights coming up. (FYI - More so curious about the alcohol part of the beverage service.) TIA
So, a new associate recently joined our team. We are still WFH. I’ve tried to be friendly with the associate but somehow not getting traction. Any suggestions? I’m the only one that initiates any kind of interaction online too. What’s the norm here? I would expect an associate to reach out more, but they only reach out to tell me to do work, which is fine too, just used to working with more social associates in the past.

Can someone share etheir experience as Microsoft Customer Success Account Manager (CSAM) ? Interviewing for that position and would love to know the day to day or important details. Also if can share compensation range that would be great as well. I have 13 yoe and have done software development and project management. Thanks
What’s the interview process like at Index Partners / Coatue? Do they recruit via HHs as well?
A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
Negotiating tips at year-end review for getting an above-average raise? Or do numbers speak for themselves?
Does compensation vary based on whether you are firm sponsored for your MBA or not? Does the number of years prior to your MBA matter or does every MBA hire come in at the same rate?
Folks, recently moved to an employer who doesn't offer 401k match and I am considering a traditional IRA to rollover my ~75k 401k funds. Any bank recommendations which offers the best fee/rate compared to the benefits ? Potentially some level of wealth mgmt for a smaller fee compared to the $25 + expense ratios with fidelity??
I'm a Microsoft Dynamics and C# Developer at a Big 4 consulting firm. But... working with Dynamics for the last 5 or 6 years is starting to wear on me. The salary is great because there is a shortage of qualified Dynamics developers, but I want to do something else, even if that's just back to being a run of the mill C# Developer. Maybe this is more of a rant or I'm letting off steam, but has anybody on here ever essentially gone from a specialized type of roll to more general role?

What’s the average timeline to go from first year M to Partner or MD without an MBA? What are the ways and skills to fast track it if it takes longer than 6-8 years? Thank you!
A consideration in any early promotion should be anonymous feedback from those directly under that person. How any firm thinks a person should move up early without considering if the people they lead think positively of them is odd
2% bonus.. lol
