re: Name one overrated actor. - MStant1
[quote]His demonstrated performance in support of films like True Romance, 12 Monkeys, Burn After Reading, etc. verifies all of this. He can deliver in leading roles (Benjamin Button, Moneyball) and in "hybrid" lead/support spots (like Se7en and Inglorious Basterds), but usually doesn't.[/quote]...

re: Whatever happened to the libertarians on this board? - MStant1
I was one of the more vocal libertarians on this board back in 2011-2013. I just got tired of it all. Became more apathetic. I still lurk, just have very little energy to argue as much these days....

re: Thanksgiving dinner New York City - MStant1
Highly recommend thanksgiving at Keens Steakhouse. Their thanksgiving menu has great options for both the Turkey and non-turkey eaters in your party. I’ve spent several thanksgivings in NYC and Keens is probably my favorite place to do it. Compared to other places Keens makes it a leisurely exper...

re: $9,999 - MStant1
As someone else mentioned it isn't the teller making the determination to file a SAR, but someone in the compliance department. Additionally, at most banks the structuring activity isn't primarily being detected by the tellers (particularly in instances where a customer structures at multiple bra...

Trump's Mistakes in His Memo - MStant1
[link=(https://www.washingtonpost.com/apps/g/page/politics/memo-explains-how-donald-trump-plans-to-pay-for-border-wall/2007/?tid=a_inl)]Trump Memo[/link] This is just a silly memo that has already been discussed, but I'd like to focus on Donald Trump's ignorance as it relates to Anti-Money Launde...

[quote]Ask for an ID. [/quote] Current regulations for remittances do not require an ID for transactions less than $3,000 - which for most migrant workers their transactions are significantly less. That said many money service businesses do have their own internal policies requiring ID's at low...

re: Who here is former Big 4? - MStant1
[quote]What my friends are paid is not the right comparison set. The comp set is what others in the same field are being paid. I think consulting / advisory is where the compensation issues exist. The B4 sets the market for audit and tax and if one of them is out of line then people will just switch...

re: Who here is former Big 4? - MStant1
[quote]How do they treat compensation? If someone got a sizeable raise leaving for industry (this is normal) and then comes back to the consulting firm (presumably in the same title) does the firm give an additional comp bump? [/quote] Obviously, I wouldn't know anything "officially". However, ...

re: Who here is former Big 4? - MStant1
7 and a half years in. Still cranking away. Trust me if you want to return to your firm you can easily return (at least from what I've seen in advisory). I've seen so many leave and boomerang a year (sometimes less) later. As long as you didn't leave like a jerk they will welcome you back w...
