Current intern at a very well known tech company in their consulting arm… but have had zero luck on applications.

I will be joining EY India by next week, just need few suggestions. EY have offered me almost 225% hike on my current CTC but all is in fixed part no Variable or joining bonus they are ready to pay.

Experienced hire manager at big 4 only a couple months into my new role and seriously stressed out by the long hours, nonstop pace, and constant fires. Would these issues be as prevalent in tech? How soon can I switch without it hurting my resume? Its so bad my therapist is coaching me using trauma response methods she uses for her military and EMT clients.
Reallocating my 401k investment mix. Check my logic. Previous: VTI 75% VXUS 25% New: VTI 30% VB (Small Cap ETF) 20% VUG (Growth ETF) 50% I'm 32 with less than 60k in retirement savings. Don't plan on retiring for another 18-20 years at least. My justification for nixing VXUS is because VTI already has 40% exposure to international sales. I want to focus on growth and I believe that I can accept risk with a 20-year runway. Added VB because VTI and VUG cover large and mid-cap. Thoughts?
My AmLaw 100 firm just launched an affinity group for attorneys with disabilities. I have a disability that is not visible and for which I have never requested an accommodation. I’d like to have the opportunity to be in a space with other attorneys who may have similar struggles as me, but I am nervous about “outing” myself. Has anyone had a beneficial experience with affinity groups and do you think the benefits of joining outweigh the risks?
