When’s a good time to leave PA? An opportunity to join as a senior accountant for one of the top publicly traded companies just came my way and I’m a first year senior. Debating on whether or not to take it. Pay is close to six figures in the pacific north west - close to a 30% pay bump for me and great benefits.

Hi! Relatively new here. Current employer doesn’t provide a 401K, and former employer is about to shut down their 401K, so I need to transfer that money elsewhere. Any advice as to - where to transfer it, and how best to keep max saving for retirement? My tax accountant suggested doing a 401K via an LLC since a typical IRA has too low a limit. Any advice or suggestions?

I'm in salary negotiations for a great role, but there's a small gap (~$10k) to even match my old salary. They have most of the obvious benefits like unlim. vacation, low healthcare premiums, 401k matching, permanent WFH, etc. Right now, severance pkg. and a more senior title are most important. Has anyone negotiated a title bump? Outcome? Are there additional benefits I should also consider?

Is it a good strategy to negotiate $$$ first, benefits later? Want to get the most important thing ($$$) settled first, but worried HR would be annoyed for going back to the team again for benefits.
