I was around 50 to 60 percent. Lease just ended. Feels good to have money again. Paying the card off and buying a tiny house.

First whole paycheck of every month, basically. But I'm an analyst and living in downtown Seattle, so I was quite aware of how expensive it would be.. Worth it for a couple years while you're young and single. (But then it's off to the burbs!)

I was tricked into this house rental with an ex thinking she would cover 20% to 30% of the cost. She maybe covered 10% every other month. Needless to say that didn't work for me. She got the boot and I continued to pay for everything till the lease was up.

Graduating with PhD in comp neuro next year. I just did a week long internship at MBB to check out consulting, which I loved but ultimately will not be accepting my offer for life considerations (my wife also works at MBB and we have young children). It was amazing getting a sense of what the work actually comprises.

Are there any similar day-long or week-long internship programs for data science? Would love to test it out for a little bit to see what I like/dislike.

Facing an interesting dilemma about compensation vs title and looking for advice. I am currently a Senior Manager in the industry (work in Financial Systems).

The role is a major step down in title and responsibilities but gives me almost 50% increase in TC. The only reason interviewed at all is the TC.

Need advice: my spouses manager is toxic and 99% of the time I’m supportive/agree with her. But I am the type to keep it real so there was a recent situation where she missed a deadline after pushing it back and committing to a specific date (she ended up sending it a day later and the client didn’t care). I told my spouse who is an analyst that from a managers perspective he’s in the right. Even if the deadline is made up and he’s a micro manager or trying to build a case against her.
