Asking for wife who's also in banking. If she got ~$100k in signing bonus in 2019 for 1 year commitment in CA and started FT in July 2020, assuming she leaves before July 2021, can her employer claw back full amount in California? Some say it's much tougher to do so under CA law but wonder if anyone has any insights. Banks won't likely care about analyst signing bonuses, but associate bonus at EB with diversity bonus can be significant. If she quits before, she won't be going to another bank.

Hi 🐟🐟 I need some advice and guidance. My sister is looking for a boy via arranged marriage. She is registered on the relevant sites etc and is meeting people.

Our caste is very small but of course she has not spoken to all of them on the app yet. .. contd

Hi Fishes,
Just wanted to know what is the process for booking travel to onsite locations outside India. If my base location is different from client location and client wants me to travel outside India for few months do I need to travel from base location to on site location or i can choose the source location from where i wish to travel. Not all places have international connectivity. Also will I be reimbursed to move from home location to source location for international travel or not.

Idk how, but I got the offer. Still wondering if it’s real (it’s been 30mins since the phone call) because I thought I performed so poorly. I wouldn’t have passed myself. I hope the interviewers didn’t make a mistake (accidentally mixed up evals for another candidate, or the call was meant for another candidate w/ the same name). I do want to thank the Fishbowl community though. So many of you took the time to share your experiences and encourage me. I couldn’t have done this without you.

What are your thoughts on branding yourself as a copywriter? Business advice for entrepreneurs seems to say, the more specific the better. I think you can be too specific though.
