[Request] if anyones feeling generous and has expiring United Club passes, one of my good friends is going on her honeymoon Monday. I’ve already upgraded them to first class (domestic) but would like to get them lounge access before too. I’ve got one pass but would need another one for her partner. Anyone have an extra they could spare?
Now with the Marriott merger, should I get one of the Marriott credit cards? I currently use my CSR for everything. Looking to see what some of your strategies are for travel cards

H1B stanping question - I just got my h1b renewed, but i need to travel in december to Asia and likely the place im travelling to will not return my passport before i have to return to the US due to christmas and new years holidays. If i go to Toronto, Canada before this and try to get the stamp before asia trip can i work while im getting the stamping done? Or is that illegal? Im afraid of taking too much vacation time across both trips.

Felling a little conflicted: I have an interview to exit consulting into industry. They are offering a 50% increase in salary, no travel. On the other hand, I love my current team and client but...

Was told last night that myself and team need to fly to MD's home location today. Was supposed to be a remote week after a long week last week. So.burnt.out. I'm dying.
Is it a good idea to tell my lead that I am about to have a mental breakdown? I am going through something personal, and this busy season hasn’t been easy for me. I requested pto, but basically was told that it is not appropriate to use pto in busy season. I am on the edge of quitting , but I think I should at least try to talk to someone before I give my notice. Any advice for this situation?
So I’ll be receiving a ~120k USD lump sum next spring. If you were in my shoes, would you: A) Purchase a ~350K home (in Orlando) with 20% down. Remaining 50k in stock market B) Just DCA it all into market Further context: Will likely be at grad school for 1.5-2 years following that. Will have an income from scholarship stipend but it'll only cover expenses. Also unsure how that'd work with mortage application if I don't have an ability to provide proof of income.
Level unlocked - A big4 partner who interviewed and grilled me for 45 mins said 'It doesn't feel like an interview cos I wasn't able to make you feel uncomfortable' Why am I posting this here - Motivation, fwiw. 4/5 months ago I was probably the most awkward, anxious non native interviewer. Got a McK interview, practiced like never before, failed the final round due to anxity/casing eff ups. Although I failed, gained lot of confidence and have been flying thru tier 2/b4 interviews since.
Taxes. I work in Chicago but interviewing for a remote role with a New York agency. Will I have to pay taxes in Illinois and New York? How has this worked for all of you during remote?
