Get an SPG Amex and get the bonus points to reach your goal.

Transfer from Amex

Don't lie. Recommend getting SPG amex

SPG has up to 20-50% off when you buy points directly. I got the 50% offer which translates to 30k points for $500. Well worth it if you know how to max SPG points.

hi fishies! I'm wondering what people think about ESG investing and how much ESG metrics / data points impact your decision to invest (or not invest) in a company?

Can personality make up for work product? I’ve worked on two matters with a first year that multiple partners have referred to as a “superstar.” Their work was just fine on both matters and downright wrong on certain issues/points. I’ve definitely been more impressed by other first years in this class. However, this first year is incredibly outgoing and some would probably consider them “charming” (comes across as a borderline sociopath imo). Could that be why partners think so highly of them?

To you, what makes a good manager? What makes a bad manager?

Will be sending our child to preschool starting in September. We paid for the entire year (September 2021-June 2022) upfront; the school requires that tuition for the entire year be paid no later than December 2021 or something. I know preschool is a qualified expense for Dependent FSA (but private school starting kindergarten is not). Can I seek reimbursement for the prorated tuition corresponding to January 2022-May 2022 from 2022 Dependent FSA, even though the tuition was paid in 2021? Thank!
