My dream job has always been MBB but only got into tier 2. Not enjoying my current firm and know MBB has what I want. Worth it to chase for MBB down the line? Perhaps enter into industry first?

Signed up for Amex plat & trying to get the bonus offer. Friend booked a hotel for 4 days in my city. When she arrives, can she swap out her card on file for my card but have her still get hotel pts?
I have a basic of 20 lpa currently, working as a band 30 - Sr Analyst at Amex. I feel I am significantly undercompensated. I was promoted this year in Feb and will be promoted to manager most likely next year. I wanted to understand from you guys if this is the right time for me to switch and get a good hike.
My total experience is close to 4 years. At Amex I have been for 2 years and 8 months.
Relocating to Accenture London and they are quoting the tier 2 visa cost as 5,000 GBP which seems really high. I am applying from outside the UK and will be reimbursed once I arrive. Any idea what the breakdown of this cost is?
My close group of friends (10 of us) are 28-30 & have really successful careers! (We’re all first Gen working women too!)
I have a new friend who is in her mid 30’s & doesn’t really have a career. She’s in a relationship & mostly relies on her partner.
I feel bad because my close girlfriends & I are always doing things (spa days, dinners, brunches, travel) and she can’t afford to go.
I always want to be inclusive and think of others - what would you do?
Best beaches to visit in September? I’m a little wary of the Caribbean/Florida because of hurricane season. Bonus if it’s got a Marriott/SPG property!
Anyone find a travel-size sunrise alarm clock? Ive fallen in love with mine during covid, but the thing is way too big for weekly travel!
Any boomerang/second innings lateral joiners to Amex in the bowl?
Does your previous employee code/PSID/email ID remain the same as it was in your first innings?
Thanks in advance 😊
Should I get the new AMEX Rose Gold card? Or just stick with using my Chase Sapphire Reserve only.
AMEX bonus is 75k points if I spend 4k in 6 months among a variety of other benefits. But also don't wanna pay annual fee for yet another credit card https://www.americanexpress.com/en-us/credit-cards/credit-intel/rose-gold-card/?linknav=creditintel-home-article
Tempted but not sure what to do. Thoughts yall?
I have the Chase Sapphire Preferred card already but looking to get another cc. Thinking about the AmEx gold or platinum but not sure I can justify the high fee for platinum. Also open to other cards as well. I don’t travel for work so not flying consistently but do like to do a few big trips a year. Any tips are appreciated!
Possibly a dumb question: do connecting flights get you 2 PQFs for United? I always try to fly direct but might consider taking some connections just to make the PQFs. Thanks!

Hey all - I booked a place in Leadville to ice climb for a month and then will be spending 2 weeks in Denver to explore neighborhoods to possibly move to with my life partner (we have separately lived in Steamboat and Boulder when we were younger). I'm freelance and booked through end of March but would love to make some connections while I'm in the area. Here is my book if you're interested or have advice. www.jessicaurgo.com
My boyfriends habits are starting to become a turn off for me. His room is constantly messy (need to walk all over clothes, dishes everywhere), his car is even worse (McDonald’s trash just gets thrown and not taken out for months), he has started “social juuling” (all his friends are extremely intelligent yet juul when they drink), and he seems to need to absolutely stuff himself when we eat. Ugh. Is there any saving this? How do I approach a discussion?

I’m a rising 2L in the top 10% at a T15 and am considering accepting an offer at a V100 firm in the ECVC space over offers from an elite V10 and V30. All in the corporate space in the LA area. Does this make me crazy? Am I wasting my achievements? There’s so much emphasis on prestige in law school that it’s been a difficult road to balance prestige, culture, and industry. I appreciate honest opinions from those with experience.

Have you ever ended a deposition due to harassing/inappropriate conduct by OC? I was close to it today and want to see if we were in the ballpark where it was justified.
Any advice on breaking bad habits/mentalities after leaving a toxic firm? I just started at a new firm that I genuinely really like, but I’ve started to realize how much my prior, very toxic firm messed up my mentality about certain things. For example, the partners at my new firm are super approachable and supportive, but I feel like my old firm conditioned me to still be deeply terrified of reaching out to partners in general with questions and to get feedback. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Big London firm, I’m 4-500 chargeable hours ahead of other associates in my team. Only qualified sept 2019 and have been asked to do full first drafts of facilities three times over the past 6 mos. Don’t have a moment to think about what I’m actually doing as constantly at max capacity on deals. I’m exhausted & trying to say no yet work still ends up with me.

I work in insurance defense and there seems to be a thought or attitude amongst many plaintiffs lawyers that all insurance defense lawyers have “sold out” or have somehow lost their souls and are now working for the bad guys. I view my job as resolving claims. Sometimes this means settlement, motion practice, and more rarely trial. I hold no animosity towards the plaintiffs bar. Without them, we’d not have jobs. What are your thoughts? Are plaintiffs lawyers justified in their beliefs?

How do you not get pigeonholed as a new associate? There are some areas I definitely like, but others not so much. I’m of the mind set now that all work is good work, but I worry about falling into a practice area I don’t want to pursue. Any advice?
First year associate needing burnout advice. Started in January (Midwest AMLaw 100) and already on track for 2,400+ hours. Great that we are busy, but this is not sustainable.
