Could use some structural layout help for a deliverable: Creating a one-page report that reflects a product offering, its benefits, and its significance (the ‘so what’) - currently only having multiple bullet points for each as the content, but think it’s not suitable aesthetically for a presentation. Any suggestions for how I should best format it for exec management? This isn’t a PPT.
Got an offer from a T2 at 1 level before the Post-MBA level. Current firm offered to match base comp with guaranteed promo to Post-MBA level. Benefits of staying would be the established network and higher rank but T2 has higher comp progression. T2 post-MBA comp would be ~50% higher in 1.5 to 2 years. Should I take the promo or leave to chase the higher potential compensation? Intend to leave consulting in 3 years. Career levels are BA > SBA > Assoc (post-MBA level) > Manager
Hello! Has anybody worked for/heard of Xcenda? I am interested in learning more about the company in terms of vertical growth potential within the company/company culture/WLB/benefits and compensation.
1. Is hsa tied to firm or individual? 2. Do I need to initiate a 401k prior to leaving a firm or can I do it afterwards?
Salesforce or Workday? I’m considering to switch to a product based company as a product owner/manager role? I know a little of both Salesforce and Workday. So I will have an equal learning curve regardless. Which out of these 2 are better in terms of more exciting opportunities, better culture, work life balance, compensation, benefits etc etc.
Hello could some people here help me think broadly about my budget. If my base salary is $90,000 for a job in SF out of college (about $5k take home a month), what do you think is the most I should spend on rent? The tech company I’m working at has amazing perks that cover other aspects of my budget (food, health premiums, etc) if that matters. I get 50% 401k match up to IRS maximum too (idk if this is good or not), so I’ll be trying to save some money this way. I appreciate any advice or tips.

Note: Anyone who was kind enough to respond in the healthcare bowl, I already messaged all of you :)
Accenture people: know how long you have to be employed before you can take paternity leave? And how long is paternity leave? Thanks!!
I see a lot of posts about only changing jobs if there's a big raise. I jumped out of consulting into a job that pays the same amount, but has way better WLB, culture, and other benefits. I was just not happy at my old job and I don't regret the switch. If you're not happy, it's ok to move without the change being all about a huge salary jump. Wish you all the best in your hunt for something new ❤️
What firm is best if I’m in analytics and want to get staffed on (ideally healthcare) projects primarily in the South (like TX, FL, GA, NC, DC) if I’m from NY and want to continue living in NY?
I might get roasted for asking such a basic question but - how much do you budget for eating out ($ amount or % of budget)? Pre pandemic I was traveling 5 days a week and just used left over per diem on the one night I went out with friends at home. During covid I stayed home. Now that I’m fully vaccinated and are many of my friends they want to go out to eat/drink. During covid I moved from a LCOL to HCOL city so I’m experiencing delayed sticker shock at the prices. Any tips?

Financially savvy fish - I’ve seen multiple opinions from folks regarding 401k’s. Some say to only put in what your company will match, others say max that bad boy out at 19K per year. Thoughts?

Has anyone used their credit cards fringe benefits? I see some off road side assistance car rental insurance, trip delay reimbursement, baggage insurance... etc. sounds really good but wondering how often if ever are you able to use these perks Chase sapphire for example.

FYI for Deloitters looking to exit. The pension is legit. I spent seven years at the firm and will be cashing out a 25k pension (I plan on rolling it over to a 401k but you get the idea). You have to have less than 30k to allow for a lump sum payout. Otherwise it grows at minimum 3% until retirement. But something to keep in mind as you’re trying to time your exit.

Is it ever appropriate for a supervising attorney to tell someone they’re reviewing that taking time off or reducing their hours for a portion of the year to help with childrearing or other family obligations (eg sick spouse, deceased parents) makes them seem “not serious” about the job?

Tips on conflict resolution/taking a breath/cutting your spouse and self some slack? Covid has upended our life, we have a two year old, living with family, barely have sex, at each other’s throats constantly, and are both exhausted and suffering.

Good or bad idea to max out your 401k the year before applying? Yes, i know it is generally a good investment. But does it impact one's EFC? It lowers adjusted gross income but is there an impact?
