Curious about thoughts on on discount points (I think I’ve already read every article on Google). I am refinancing my personal residence (future rental) as well as a rental property. The mortgage brokers discourage me from spending a ton on points (rolled in, not up front). In some cases, it’s a 16 year break even. I get that’s a very long time to break even, but I have no intention of getting rid of the properties and doubt rates will drop much below current. Max breakeven point for you?

Has anyone successfully negotiated a title? I was looking for Senior Manager positions but applied for some Mgr positions too. I’m up for promo next year at my current job as well. The current industry offer meets my comp expectation but planning to see if they would bring me in as a senior manager. There isn’t a set hierarchy for the team as of right now as they are building the team and I’d be reporting to a senior executive. Any talking points/tips that might help me negotiate?

I’m a noob and can use some help looking for rewards flights. I have some AA miles and AmEx points. I am looking for business class flights to Europe for summer vacation (June or July 2023). I am flexible with locations and dates, have searched for Italy, Spain, France, and Netherlands. On AA, one round trip ticket costs about 450K miles! AmEx is a 1% redemption rate, costs about $5K for a one way ticket. What’s the best way to search for low cost flights?

Going into last night I had a 10 point lead with DeAndre Hopkins to play and a flex (David Montgomery or Allen Robinson) and my boss had Taylor Lockett. Thought I had this on lock and then Lockett decides to go off for 50+ points.

Now I'm down 20 points with an open flex spot for Montgomery or Robinson. Leaning towards Robinson since Montgomery hasn't had a good game since Week 2. Thoughts?

Can anyone describe Amazon’s culture for an associate corporate counsel,based on team? I’ve read a number of comments on this app and across the internet about the company in general but the individuals never specify what team they’re referring to. I’ve heard from two corp counsel that AWS doesn’t have the best WLB but Prime Video does. I’d be interested to hear what this bowl has to add. The more data points I can gather before interviewing, the better.

Hi, I joined in dec end and my client engagement had given me gold standard in 3 and almost always in other feedback points.

However my counsellor seems not to be impressed he had given usually in 2 points and rest as almost always.

He had unreal expectations from me to work on internal team proejct for atleast 1-1.5 hrs a day. Which i was not able to but contributed around 9-10 hrs daily on client engagement.

What will be impact here? Will i be getting default rating of 3?
