53 here and thinking about the future - looking at a major decision point at 60 and then seeing where I am at that point. Opinions and plans on transitioning to “the next phase”?
Real talk - do you feel that you need to wear heels at work to be taken more seriously by everyone? Managers, partners, clients? I feel like the culture is for women to be in heels? New joiner.
I have $20k sitting around. I was recently laid off, but am currently working an internship in Private Equity (try before you buy type of thing). My 401k is not maxed for this year and I don’t have a a Roth IRA. What should I do with the money? I’ve been doing really well in my personal investing and want to put the money to work.
I’m confused by backdoor Roth pro rata rule. I’d appreciate any explanation or a link. 2 issues: 1. I switched jobs in March and converted my old 401k of $120k to a rollover-IRA and invested. Am I going to get taxed pro rata rule and get taxes if I backdoor $6k from my rollover IRA to Roth after 7/15 though it’s a new tax year? 2. My wife did a 401k rollover 4 years ago and invested IRA since. Does she get taxed if backdoor? 3. What if I transfer taxed $ from bank -> IRA -> Roth w/o investing?
This morning I was missing all my SPG points and reservations, then all was fixed when I checked at 1:00.. . and now it’s all lost again. And somehow I’m platinum elite with maybe 30 nights last year
Just need to vent among people who understand me. So we have a multi-generational workplace which is kinda a good thing, generally, but not lately. With the whole opinion polarization around racism, I feel like I don’t know how to be empathetic, impartial and connect people anymore.
Idk if I should be offended. I'm on client site and one of the managers I've been working with is eating a gyro next to me and says," Your people sure knows how to cook." I'm not Greek... From Iran.
Been on a project for 3 months. Only great reviews, being told I'm doing a really good job, client is happy, etc. why sometimes do I still feel like I have no idea wtf I'm doing?
Dear Me, In the future, do not promise a shit ton of extra work to the client for no other reason than being too spineless to push back. Regards, Sunday Scaries
Does anyone else have a tough time crafting emails? I always get straight to the point and cut to the chase and need help on the fluff.
Bain FBers: What, exactly, do Knowledge Specialists do? No offense meant, but it sounds like glorified PMO. What's their culture and work schedule like? Is it still 80%+ travel? Thanks in advance!
