Ill say it again, we should start considerin splitting the Union. There is a minority of the US who wants a mad man in charge. There is very little reason for the majority to abide by this.
Hollywood is flush with unions: WGA, DGA, SAG, etc. Why don't we have any in advertising?
Anybody anti-teacher’s union and pro-police union? How do you hold these beliefs simultaneously?
I knew a colleague last year that had to call on their union lawyer and make a case. I don't remember the details, but I know that they were glad they joined the union in the first place.
I have a car that I bought by taking a loan with Digital Credit Union (DCU). How does one go about selling it if there’s still a significant amount to be paid back as part of the loan? Might move to nyc and wouldn’t need a car. Can someone take me through the steps? TIA
His parents not approving of our union but he wants their approval and wants to wait it out. Anyone else went thru this situation? When enough is enough? Should I break up or wait for him?
So, with the whole SCOTUS thing being done. I again ask the questions. Whats the value of keeping the union together? We have a radical fundamentalist minority who contributes little to nothing but get to make choices on behalf and against the wishes of the majority of the country. Whats the value for states like New York, Illinois, and California to remain in an union with states like Kentucky, Missisipi, and Missouri?
At what point did your College degree start paying off as compared to peers who didn’t go to college? I have multiple friends who have 0 debt work in construction/ unions making 6 figures since 20...
In case anyone’s near Queens College, I saw a post on Facebook that they have a pop-up vaccine site for J&J in the student union and are giving them until they run out. It was posted about two hours ago.
DC 🐠, thoughts on living in NoMa? SO will be working at Galladuet - we will only have 1 or 2 days to find a place this month before the move, like apts (online) near union market/harris teeter
Piggy backing on my podcast post: I work mostly in film...when it comes to pure audio talent (radio/podcasts) are there set union rates comparable to SAG? Or can you set your own?
Every year I get asked to join a union. I don't think I need to, of course, until I actually need their support. What do you think?
Mixing in NYC: Heard City, Sound Lounge, or Sonic Union? Mixer recos at each place are appreciated too!
How do you tell your admin that how they talk to you isn’t okay with you (condescending and rude) without making it worse?
Any strong thoughts/opinion about nontenured teachers opting out of joining the union their first 2-3 years? Good idea? Bad idea? It’s good to have community and solidarity, but it’s a also lot of money to some young adults... and if they’re non-renewed, there’s really nothing the union can do. My student teacher asked me and I figured I’d get the opinions of those who have experience on either side. Thanks!
Can we start a union?
Hearing about the ridiculous demands from the LA teachers union... Is anyone else frustrated with how political teaching has become? I'm not sure that I would teach at all if it was required to join the union. So sick of the pressure to back certain candidates, walk-outs, and viewpoints. My district has a negotiating body affiliated with the NEA, but it's voluntary to be a member. I'm glad to live in a state with options.
Can anyone provide insight into IA roles for credit unions and insurance companies? Been interviewing and I’m unsure. For the credit union, I would be the only IA as it’s a new role they’ve created - they haven’t had any IA’s in the past as the duties were shared between depts. I would report directly to CEO. For the insurance company. The department consists of 3 senior auditors and a manager. I would report to the manager. They both seemed to be slower paced than PA which is what I want.
I hit 40 years old this month. Can I justify a 100k 997.1 GT3 while still growing my passive income streams or should I wait. Curious to get the perspective of older folks. $1.5m net worth. $770k retirement. $400k home equity. $330k stock. $430k HHI. HCOL city. One child under 5. Will get a credit union loan to avoid tapping investments. I spent my 20s buying sports cars new and regretted it financially. Been very disciplined for the past 10+ years. Am I making the same mistake again?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
I think I could wfh on a full-time basis. I've got a great set-up, spend zero time commuting, work a lot, and still get plenty of sleep. Most importantly, I finally got my Nespresso all set up.
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
Indian cook in New York area - Does anyone know of an Indian cook who comes to your place and cooks a bunch of Indian food in the New York area? I used to buy meals from a lady who came to my place and cooked before covid, but she has now left New York. Thank you in advance!
Just got offered a new job. Ideally, I really want to help my current company as much as I can and be there through cyber week (11/30) before leaving. I also want to take time off between jobs because I am so burnt out. Is early December way too far away of a start date to propose to the new job? Will they look at me like I’m crazy?

Big 4 🐠 here. Love consulting work but tired of the lifestyle. Anyone heard about F212, Slalom and Bridgespan?
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
What % of your stock investment do you trade on frequent basis? e.g., out of my $100k invested in stock market, 90k is in index funds / ETFs for long term. I was wondering if the remaining 10k I have in “trends-driven” fund or stock (e.g., Zoom, RIOT, MGNI) should I trade frequently (sell at high, buy again when low..) Will tax implications impact decision / profits?
Got an offer from a T2 at 1 level before the Post-MBA level. Current firm offered to match base comp with guaranteed promo to Post-MBA level. Benefits of staying would be the established network and higher rank but T2 has higher comp progression. T2 post-MBA comp would be ~50% higher in 1.5 to 2 years. Should I take the promo or leave to chase the higher potential compensation? Intend to leave consulting in 3 years. Career levels are BA > SBA > Assoc (post-MBA level) > Manager
Moving to Cleveland next month from Columbus for my next role from consulting to the industry. Any thoughts on Cleveland as a city to raise a family and live long term?
Hey there! I’m looking into a move from academia to industry. Higher education is a hot mess and my job has no formal growth opportunities. I am not paid competitively for my role or location. Plus, we just got our first raise in 8 years! It was about 2%. I feel like my passion is no longer serving me and the future I want to pursue. Tips for making the switch? I just had my final interview for an IFS research position at PwC.

Just a PSA- check your spam folder. I had an interview invite there and only reason I checked was because my roommate joked about gmail conspiring against me.
