Does anyone have any info about the program for very long-tenured IFS staff, where the firm will pay for your health insurance after you retire if you meet certain tenure requirements?

Just curious. What are everybody’s pension benefits out there? PwCs are fairly dismal for employees. 25% 401(k) match on first 6% deferred.

I applied for a job and received an offer from my client. 15k+ bump in salary, better benefits/remote work, and responsibilities will give me exposure to all areas of the organization (start up).

I would report directly to the controller and have 1-2 staff reporting to me...

Would go from around $140-160K TC to $250K but not sure if the instability, more hours, more limited career growth is worth it. (4 YOE out of UG)
