As an analyst, I was excited for consulting for travel, new work environments, and all of the benefits. Was absolutely loving it until quarantine hit. Will consulting ever get back to the old normal or will we be stuck working the same hours from home with very limited person to person interaction? As an extreme extrovert, I’m feeling extremely disengaged and generally depressed day to day. Looking for people that have high visibility to future consulting operations.

Just got an offer from a growing private company for an FP&A analyst role. 2 YOE at Big 4 plus CPA. They offered 75K plus decent benefits. No 401K currently (told its in the works for 2021) or bonus. Its their final offer. It’s a MCOL. I like the people I’ve met but the only thing holding me back is I feel like I should be making at least 80K plus a bonus. Do y’all think the offer is reasonable? The recruiter said not many companies hire someone directly from an audit background for this role.

Apologies if this is a silly question - New analyst here and trying to get a handle on my finances and retirement portfolio. I’m familiar with the rough sequence of saving being: 3-6 months HYSA, Company match 401k, Roth IRA, HSA, 401k max, personal brokerage (Pls correct me if i’m incorrect here). My question is: Are you expected to invest as much money as you can into each step before proceeding to the next, or do you allocate a portion of your paycheck to each of these steps simultaneously?

Analyst here (graduated 2020 and started working virtually during pandemic wfh). Sharing that mutual jaded feeling with many other analysts about working a job we didn’t sign up for in 2019.
