(1/2) I started a new job less than a month ago at a large firm with a significant pay increase. I work remotely- which is a special arrangement. They paid for my travel to their headquarters for in-person training. After interacting with my manager and some of the attorneys, I feel like I made a mistake. Manager is demeaning and rude. A bunch of the attorneys dropped not so subtle hints that people who work from home are causing all kinds of problems. I don’t know what to do.

What is like working at Marriott?
Might try to fly across the United States (so like 6 hours) with my dog (service dog) for the first time on United. Anything I should know on bringing a service dog on a plane (I see I have to fill out a US dep’t of travel form but there doesn’t seem to be much other info online, like what proof I might need that my dog is a service dog, if any)? Also any tips if it’s the dog’s first time flying (I’d think my dog would be quite anxious given that it’s quite a different experience)?

Hello, I am 36 and have over 250k in savings. I started saving late (at 32) as I didn’t make much and lived in NYC. I used to be on a visa and had little to say on my salary negotiations. Upon getting my green card, my salary doubled when I changed jobs and I started saving extensively. Today I make around 180k a year and am able to save $4.5k a month and 7% towards 401k. I have no kids and I am looking to maximize savings. Any advice? Thanks!

To managers and senior managers in big 4, how do you support your seniors to be promoted to manager? I have a senior manager on a big job, who always talks over me and once I explain something he always reexplains it as though I never explained it properly which brings my confidence down. Should I be more assertive and ask him why he is doing it?
