So I’m excited I have three pretty solid options 1. Being a trust tax manager at a bank ( I’ve done banking/trust world before) 2. Contract to hire at a private equity firm 3. Staff accountant role at a healthcare company. Thoughts on these options?

Anyone successfully negotiate maternity leave in industry? I feel like the only reason I’m staying in B4 is for the maternity/parental leave benefit. It’s hard to find a tax manager role in industry with a comparable 16 weeks paid leave. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome!

Anyone successfully negotiated maternity/parental leave in industry? I feel like the only reason I’m at B4 is for the maternity leave benefits. It’s very hard to find a tax manager role in industry that comes close to the 16 paid weeks plus vacation benefit. Any advice? I’m not pregnant yet but just planning ahead.

Had dinner with a friend last night and they told me someone who is a Tax Manager in BTS at KPMG was leaving to take a job as a tax Director in industry making $175k + stock options. Not in a major city. Does that sound accurate on both (1) big 4 manager to tax director and (2) tax director in a smaller city making $175k + stock options and benefits? Managers in our office in BTS probably make $110k and that’s on the high end.

Product Management - I am somewhat interested in trying to move into product management.

I work in healthcare and would want to stay there. I’m wondering if others have any thoughts on these transitions.

I know the usual advice for saving is emergency fund - 401k up to match - max IRA - max 401k - HSA?/personal brokerage. However, where does saving for a house deposit and car deposit (want used but only ~2-3 yrs old) fit in? I’m 26, 100k salary and have been trying to put away 3k per month into HYSA/emergency fund, was maxing 401k at ~$800 per pay period (lowered to $400 a month a few months ago since no firm match and would like to put $ into HYSA/house/car fund), and $500/month to max IRA.
