Anyone who has recently accepted a job at EY consulting I would greatly appreciate your insight. How would you describe work life balance in comparison to the company you left? Was the increase in pay/benefits worth the change in work life balance? I’m currently in a situation where I work close to 40 hours a week (remote), so I’m hesitant to accept a new role where I may work 50-60 hours a week for only 20k more pay. Also for reference I’m looking at transitioning into a senior consultant role.

Recently started working remotely for a consulting firm in NY, currently living in TX. Single with no dependents, haven’t setup 401k or other contributions yet - my first paycheck was taxed at 38%. Because of my residence in TX, no NYC city tax was withheld (correctly). At 125k, 38% seems absurd! I checked multiple online calculators and even manually checked what my contributions should be against the tax tables - I should be closer to 30%. Does this check out? I hope it’s a clerical mistake

Why put money into a 401k past the match when you get taxed as ordinary income once you pull it out. The long-term capital gains tax would most likely be lower (15-20%) and your funds would be more liquid (brokerage acct. vs 401k)
