Is anyone else in credit card debt?
Anyone have any thoughts on using Venmo for crypto purchases / wallet? Seems like it’s not at sophisticated, e.g., very few coin options and likely no interest for holding. Any red flags? It appears their new credit card will take the cash back you earn from purchases and auto invest in the coin (limited) of your choice. Seems intriguing but will admit I am a noob to the space
I’m a Senior Consultant with 11 years experience, an underwater mortgage, and $19k in credit card debt. If I file for divorce, will my terrible, horrible SO get half my debt?
Delta from LHR to ATL is delayed from 2:05pm to 6pm. Will they just give me €300/€600 (if it’s longer than 4 hrs) if I just ask for it, since it’s by EU law? Or do I have to go through hassles?

Flying internationally for a wedding from the US (to Spain). Delta looks like the starting prices are lowest but I’m definitely not going to be cramped in economy. How is Comfort+ international? Does anyone strongly advise against delta & have recommendations for other airlines? Thanks in advance!
feeling sorry for the guy/girl who forgot their microsoft laptop/ tablet in an AA flight from DFW to ORD sitting in 16e. Turned it in just now. Hope you are in FB and you get it back.
Anyone have any insight into the singles scene in FLL? Especially compared to NYC (love here). Never been thrilled with MIA based on my visits, and hoping FLL may be a bit more down to earth. 30s/M
Ethiad vs Emirates? Likely getting staffed in the Middle East. Have a binary option for flights from North America. Which is better, and which points program is easier to redeem?
What’s it like actually living in LA? From the Midwest and wanting to move to a bigger city (NYC, Bos etc) but the idea of LA entices me. Been as a visitor but curious as to actually living there TIA
Have to travel for work to Pleasanton, CA. Any suggestions on towns I should live in and hotel recommendations if any? I suspect San Francisco is too far out but wondering if there is anything nearby. Don’t mind going off the beaten path and getting a cabin in the woods if needed 😀
All these early morning flight posts got me feeling some type of way. Another bench week, sweet dreams ladies and gents 🙏
What’s big law like in San Francisco? Anyone have any insights to firm cultures or billable targets?
Anyone fly Delta with ORD as their home base? I realize I may need to take connections but is this worth it? Lost EP last year, status matched to Platinum with Delta if having status matters
Sad, literal shower thought this morning: At the current rate of travel, by the time my oldest is 10, I’ll have been gone about 4 years of his life.
Why won’t AA let me book business class flights with points if they’re available to buy cash? (Qatar flight on AA site)
What is the path to a GC for a senior associate on a TN? I’ve been with my firm since college (2 years) - firm policy is that they initiate the process after a two year tenure (and provided you are senior associate rank, at minimum). Will I be able to pass the PERM evaluation? If not, would things get easier with a subsequent promotion? Or would it be best to lateral to a new firm and start the process there? Sorry, super green when it comes to this

Thoughts on exiting to a FAANG L6 Strategy role or waiting until July for my impending promotion to manager? Do we think I can push the start date out to August?

Interviewed for a role at google and my phone interview went okay but not great. The recruiter wants to connect over a call - does google make the effort to call you in person to reject you?🙄
What is the bonus structure at your law firm? Associate hour requirement at my firm is 1850, for every hour over that you get your billable rate (i.e. if your rate is $200/hr you get $200 for each hour over 1850). To me this seems like its just overtime pay. Is this typical?
Have a ton of Aeroplan points saved up. Debating whether to save them for travel or use them for an Apple Watch. Any tips? Is it generally better value to use them for travelling?

So I am going to try and jump ship from PWC before the sale, should I start dressing in suits now so days I interview look less werid or just call out sick each day I have an interview?
Not so H1B - Is there a CPA service that i can use to file my tax return by contacting them through email? I already returned to my home country but my tax return is so confusing. Thanks!
Hey 🐠, what is your base salary vs. the price of your home when you bought it? I’ll start - I’m currently at a 115k base and paid $218k for my home. I live in Atlanta.
So my friend at PwC said they’re having “utilization concerns” and think it might negatively impact them come EoY… here’s my question - why do firms track this if staffing ultimately has your fate? I don’t think we track this, which makes sense to me because staffing says “hey you’re going to be doing X for date Y-Z.” How can you benchmark people on something driven by business demand?
So with all the chat on here about how easy it is to get hired, are you as a hiring manager putting more emphasis into screening and challenging interviewees than before as a response? I ask because I successfully went through an interview process and have no idea how a candidate who wasn’t well versed in the cases, practice, and even consulting exp would be able to pass.
