I’m 23, left blackrock because I’m making way more money trading for myself. Looking to buy a 3/3 house in Miami Beach north of 40th, debating whether I pay cash so I have lower monthly fees, or getting a mortgage, due my age I’ve been having some trouble. My current portfolio is about 10m. My price range on properties is 3-5m. I’ll be closing a sale on my tech startup for 1-2m this summer hopefully. Question is should I use OPM, and how much you suggest I put down cash, or full cash?

Hi guys, I joined a small consumer goods company as a corporate development manager just under a year ago. I don’t really manage anyone and other than working with the CFO to get a $600M revolver and a couple of failed minority sale process, I’ve been glorified FP&A. How do I present this on my resume when looking for other opportunities? Should I change my title to associate on my resume when applying for jobs? Before this I did two years of regional boutique IB.

Fantastic culture and values for staff and amazing work/life balance makes working here really fun and enjoyable. The people here are what makes the place.
Doesn't pay quite as well as Leeds city centre, but the advantages definitely make up for it,

Work-life balance is generally good. Nice rural location - makes a change from big cities. Colleagues are nice overall. Canteen.
Micromanagement. Poor salaries and benefits. Offices need an upgrade. Lack of commerciality Lagging behind rivals like Yorkshire and Leeds Building Societies.Continue reading
We’re sorry your experience working at Skipton wasn’t as positive as others have said. We’d like to reassure you that we do listen and will continue to listen to our colleagues feedback, and work hard to enable people to have confidence to share with us their honest views – good or bad. We’re really proud of our above industry average 88% Employee Engagement score but are committed to further investing in our colleagues. To address your note about upgrading our offices we have this year undertaken a significant building works project, creating a multifunctional Atrium that provides our 1,500 head office colleagues with lots of new meeting rooms and a light, modern space to facilitate informal meetings, coaching conversations and larger events. We’ve also transformed our busy café into an informal meeting area, together with upgrading all of our washroom facilities. Across our branch network we have a rolling programme of refurbishment, including our Leeds branch, which has been fully refurbished.
- Former Employee★★★★★RecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Skipton in the most part is a friendly place to work, very process driven and very risk averse. The building is well maintained and the on-site cafe is fairly good.
Pay is not close to market rates, they rely on people who dont want to travel to Leeds or Bradford to keep wages lower than market average. There is the "Skipton shrug" the attitude that they don't do it that way so lack vision and desire to change process from how it's always been done.Continue reading

The feeling of belonging and having an important role to play in the success of the Society. At Skipton you really feel valued, and are playing an important role in customer satisfaction. Great commute, continually improving benefits package, on site café and restaurant.
Salary not as high as central Leeds, but improving.Continue reading
