Looking for a new credit card and deciding between the Amex gold or chase sapphire preferred. Any preferences? For reference I’m in my mid 20s and live in nyc. I’m not looking to pay a huge annual fee and I have a corporate Amex green card which takes $100 off annually for Amex gold.

I have status with delta as well but work completely remote so not traveling as much.

Hi, I have a 1st round interview coming up for an associate position at L.E.K. Consulting and was wondering if anyone could give some insight into the interview? I believe it will be 2 cases, 30 min strategy and 30 min quant. Have been doing some case prep over past few months, but nothing too in depth or LEK specific. Kind of nervous - never done a case interview and feel a little underprepared
Anyone recruiting for a Remote HR Manager or Recruiter in the Baltimore/Columbia and Annapolis area.
Reached out to the head of Firm A (who I had a last-round interview with a few weeks ago) to say that I received an offer from Firm B but still want to work for them. The head said that I'm one of the top candidates and that they want to schedule more time to talk in detail tomorrow. What could this mean?

As per h1b visa policy, I understand that we need to file an amendment everytime I need to perform work from clients location. But do we need to file an amendment if we are performing work from different state, city for few days when you are visiting friends? Have you got engagement managers approval in this cases? Also, do you then submit your timesheet from different location if you do or do not get the approval?

Feeling rushed into setting up next interview rounds from McKinsey interviewer. Don’t have the bandwidth with current work to do adequate case practice between rounds. Will it reflect poorly on me if I push for interviews to be a week or so apart especially Round 2 and final? McKinsey & Company
My 6 mo just switched to a new daycare bc the old place (we started at 4mo) had NO transparency. she was coming out with dirty face, dried up tears, red marks, frequent blow outs etc that the teachers/admins kept brushing off. New place offers 24/7 camera access and provide lots of updates throughout the day. The teachers seem to be doing the best they can. But after the first week I noticed my baby was extremely aggressive, vocal, irritable, &can't nap. Should I be worried about the new place?
