If hotel chains allowed you to tip staff with points, would it push you to do it? Currently, don’t have cash on me to tip (often the case), if I could tip a portion of points earned, I would.

Best way to maximize Amex Gold benefits? Aside from the Uber and dining credits - I don’t travel much but I do dine out / order in a fair bit
Am I right in thinking that many attorneys often complicate disputes unnecessarily? Say, for instance, employment disputes. Client wants to get rid of an employee. Attorney reviews case and concludes that it’s dubious whether they have cause for termination. Often, the parties go into a long back and forth dispute that is often settled just before trial. The attorney should say "look, there’s a strong risk this won’t hold up in court, you must offer a good settlement. Let’s do it ASAP".
I’m 25 and the guy I’ve been dating casually is 27. He went to college the first time after high school but dropped out due to financial reasons and ended up just working. He recently started going back to school part time and continues to work full time. He’s estimated to graduate next year with a management degree. He asked me if I thought he was too much of a project and to be honest I didn’t think so. My last relationship my ex hated his job and I had to push him to apply for other ones cont
What does everyone think about the future of the audit (public) industry? I actually really like working on audit and doing client service but absolutely hate the business model. I wish it could be more equitable along the way rather than waiting for a pay day after you’ve worked you life away. I feel like younger generations are less willing to see benefit in this idea and it seems like fees are not keeping up with constant emphasis on growth.

Hi, any recommendations for family vacation which is less than 10-12 hours drive from Dallas?
For those who left big law - is there such a thing as a 9-5 legal job? Doesn’t have to pay nearly close to big law salary, as long as I’m free to have dinner with my family and watch my kid grow up. No hate, please - I know big law is not for everyone and it’s definitely not for me. For context, I have no debt and I’m about to have my first child. I’m a 4th year corporate associate.
Why interviews are so difficult ?🙁
