Planning a bridal shower / bachelorette party weekend for my elder sister (she’s 28). She wants to have it in NYC, which is where she and I live. I’m thinking bridal shower at Union Square Cafe or some other fancy restaurant Saturday morning, bachelorette party Saturday night (but no idea where), and then casual goodbye brunch at my parent’s place on Sunday AM. Her friends would fly in Friday or Saturday morning. Have never done this so need all the advice / suggestions! Thank you!
I have 1-2 yr AML/KYC experience at a tier two firm in NYC -- what should my salary expectation be when searching for a new job?
I don’t know who to ask for references. Since law school I worked at a non profit for 2 years. Then clerked. Was at a firm two months before it closed and now at my current firm. I have one from my supervisor at the nonprofit. But I’m not sure where to get my others. I could get my judge but not sure they’d be willing/have good things to say. We didn’t have a good relationship. Is it okay to ask someone else from the nonprofit or maybe my co-clerk? It’ll be six years but someone from internship?
Have $300 to spend from my firm on home office accessories! Honestly at a loss to figure out what to get... Already have great chair/standing desk, keyboard, mouse, headphones, monitor. What can you all not work without?

I just had drinks with two of my college friends who been at mbb for 3 years… Feedback was that they were lost on what to do next because they had good general skills + brand, but never went too deep on anything. Is that a real problem or do I need better friends?
Colleague of mine got her rating yesterday- I'm positive she's going to quit and screw us over on this project because she is feeling some sort of way about the firm. Can't blame her but thanks mgt :/

MBB interviewers: “What’s your management style”, “What’s your communication preference”, ever hurt to provide a story to illustrate those traits? Or best spend that time elsewhere (“tell me about a time” questions, the case itself, etc). Ideally would do both, but only 30/45 mins here. TIA!
That one client where nothing ties 😡
How do you all role out your ERG
Is it worth submitting a service request if I see the date in the case status times has past the date of my notice for Advanced Parole? Or should I just wait it out a little more to see if the combo card or green card come through. Looks like the dates for EAD are still about 6months away. Wondering if submitting this will speed this along?
Any advice on how and when to mention that I’m expecting during an interview process (1st, 2nd or 3rd round)? I’m currently 20weeks pregnant and having an interview next week. I don’t know if the company I’m interviewing for will have maternity benefits. What’s a good way to ask about this? If you went through similar situations, could you please share your experience? TIA!
Considering boomeranging back into public tax. It’s been about 15 months and I’m really not feeling my current job. I miss working with more than 2 people and on more than one project. But then I think hey I left for a reason, right? Wondering whether people had a better experience after boomeranging due to the new perspective ?
Throwing my had in the ring. I applied to Airtable, Netflix, and Stripe. If I get an offer, how long would I generally be able to wait for potential other offers to come in. I'm also applying to Proserve and KPMG as backups.
