Staying the weekend in lieu of traveling home. Hotel has no electricity today, they said they could come a night at the hotel. But I'm not paying, ask for points if so how much?
If you have a negative balance on your credit card (overpay every month) and use it until you go back to zero, do you still earn points/ cash rewards on your usage. Context: I am trying to see if I can essentially use my credit card as a debit card but still earn points at the same time.
Received and eval that I disagree with some points pretty strongly. Mad at myself that I’m afraid to say much I’m positive it will end up hurting more than solving.

I asked the waitress at my hotel bar what time her shift was ending so we could hang out, and she shut me down. I think she did so because I was wearing my MAGA hat. How many points should I demand?
Last night's buy at 3096 goes 1.5 points over the objective that I called last night in Europe. There were two HWB long buying opportunities last night. New Target 3159.25 probably hit in today's NY session. We are trading Micro HWB's right now. Basically, we are goin to hit new highs and create a potential double top situation. Be careful being long at that new objective. If it's a dip into new highs situation, we could sell off violently, like we did yesterday. Bullish Above 3126.

I’m currently a senior accountant and I mainly focus on accruals and expense analysis. Prior to this role I was in State & Local Tax. I wasn’t sure if tax is where I wanted to be at the time especially because I heard you can get pigeonholed. I actually kind of miss the work that I used to but also found tax can be very mentally challenging. I’m struggling with trying to decide if I should go back to tax or maybe use my current experience to go into FP&A or a Finance related role. Advise please!
Do the exit opps get better after you hit 2 YOE? Every recruiter that contacts me gives me an insultingly low offer (below or at my current comp, which isn’t good to begin with). Any ways to increase the comp of my offers, or do I just have to wait? (And btw, these low offers are after negotiating)

I have a kid in 7th grade. I am looking to start 529 plan with 20k seed money. One of my friends suggested to open an IRA and do a backdoor conversion to Roth IRA and put the money in index fund (eg VTSAX, FSKAX, FZROX etc.). I wanted to get some feedback from this group on the pros and cons of these options for a 4-5 year investment timeline from growth and expense ratio perspective especially when it comes to using the fund primarily towards educational expenses. Thanks in advance!

Hello Everyone! Had a discussion yesterday regarding “claw backs” being included in a policy for sponsorship if the new employee leaves before 3 years. It was a declining percentage over a three year period. My POV was that it wasn’t something I’ve ever done and didn’t seem like they were sure of the hire they were making. I get wanting to save costs but at the same time doesn’t feel inclusive or welcoming. Thoughts? Have you done this or seen it work? Thanks!
Guidance coming out next week on mid-year compensation review. Wonder how many people this will push over the edge who have been holding out the last couple months in hopes of a raise.
Done 5-years in consulting, post MBA, trying to decide what's next. Partner in ~6 years? Go to a startup? Go to industry and find some hobbies?
My boss and mentor was recently laid off with the cuts made last week, and I have a gut feeling I’m next. I’ve tried my best to stay positive with my current agency, but it’s time to move on. I need a change of pace. Understand just about every shop is on a hiring freeze, but anyone need a strategist?
