Feel like I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about splitting chores recently / managing house work and I want to make a plug for an app I found recently called Sweepy! You can set up the tasks that you want to do together and complete them as a household - tasks can have different amounts of “effort points” and different recurrences, and household members sign up to do different amounts of work (app will tell you if it’s not enough to complete all the tasks on your list).

Can I purchase an economy ticket with Amex rewards points and later on upgrade it to premium economy in WestJet with my travel bank dollars?
I know it’s a very first-world-problem but… I have a lot of Aeroplan points and many eUpgrade credits expiring at the end of this year that I’d like to use but I don’t know which routes are the best options to use this year given closures. I want to make it a long flight that makes the most out of flying business. Australia and Japan (my first options) are closed. Any other ideas? I’m thinking Hawaii

Hi all, I talked to PwC India HR, he mentioned the compensation I asked for could not be fulfilled but he will come back with a number after director level approval.

My partner and I have been getting contacted be recruiters and beginning to set up interviews. Truthfully, we don’t want to leave and want to continue doing the fun stuff we’re doing.

Or do you need an offer in hand to negotiate?

His response stay with me to date “Meritocracy isn’t about the number of projects or deals you work on, how efficient you are, how dedicated you are but it’s about how many MDs know and like you and who on performance calls like you”. He was promoted to MD this year. Lesson don’t be a grinder - play the game.
My background has been primarily corporate and public company reporting (5 years). I took a role to develop some regulatory compliance experience and now I’m pretty certain I don’t want to stay in compliance. However, my role is pretty sweet with good pay, WLB (two under four at home), even though it’s not the most interesting work.
