Wanting to buy a place and looking for benchmarks. For those of you who’ve bought, what were your specs (1) salary, (2) home cost, (3) down payment, (4) mortgage type, (5) monthly principal, interest and (6) taxes and insurance.
Am I too old? Too old to chase a wild dream of living in a beach town? Too old to follow a hunch? Too old to sell everything and start over somewhere else? Some days I feel like I am. With parents in failing health and a grandpa that is lonely most of the time, I feel obligated to stay here. To keep living the life that “makes sense”. I’m 32 single, no kids, own my home, essentially have life by the tail. I live an hour from where I grew up. Feel like I don’t fit in with my friends anymore…
Anyone have insight into Indexed Universal Life insurance as a tax free investment vehicle? My financial advisor is saying there is no downside risk and 5-7% return and tax free. Sounds either too good to be true, or is this how the wealthy avoid paying taxes??

Max 401k or use money to invest in my cash management accounts? I am maxing out the max my company will match for 401k but should I aim for the $19500 limit or invest the rest of the cash the company doesn’t match and invest it in my investment accounts?

PwC fish - Does the firm allow reverse rollovers into the 401k? In other words, can you roll assets from another 401k into the PwC 401k?
Hello! I am stuck with a problem and need help. I've been working at a start up agency with good pay and benefits for the past 3 months. The problem is, I recently decided to move to another state for my sanity at the peril of losing this job. Upon hire, my CD informed me that the agency wishes to have mandatory in office visits about 2-3 days a week in the future. Now my q is - should i look for another job, then talk to the CD, or should i speak to them now. FYI I do wish to stay with them!
Thinking about joining tech. 🐠 What are the non-FAANG companies do you see the highest potential (thinking that joining FAANG today probably doesn’t provide that much upside)? From a preference standpoint, most interested in fin tech and health tech. But trying to solve for RSU potential above all
Deloitte 🐠 what’s the typical salary for a Manager in Human Capital Management/Change Management in the Boston area ?
So the Co-Chair of the Deloitte Black Action Council was not a Black woman but an Indian Woman who is now the Chief Diversity Officer. I feel a little duped and bamboozled. As a Black American this person does not share our history with slavery, Jim Crow, etc. I don’t think anything will come of this council. I wonder are black initiatives will become an all minority initiative. Is Black hiring going to increase. Will more blacks be considered for senior management up to partner positions
Thoughts on GLG? Offer in business development team. GLG not finance but need reach!! Got 24 hours to respond. I am a finance analyst but offered a job in the team and wondering how hard do they go in on sales? They said no financial targets until year 2 but I’m sceptical. I’ve never done sales before either and the job involves prospect and account mapping. I was offered the job due to my transferable skills. I will be in a small team of 4 but my role is the only business development position.

What has this whole Covid-19 situation and the craziness (volatile economy, folks’ fragile mental health, social distancing phenomenon, life as a bubble etc etc...) associated with it taught you so far?
I work in the Human Capital space and manage projects. What is worth more - SPHR or PMP? Or do either count? Obviously want to make Director and eventually more...
What are your honest thoughts about gender inequality in the industry? Do you think gender has something to do with how far you go or is it just a matter of hard work?

Has anyone interviewed for a data specialist or product development position at YipitData? Looked over Glassdoor and saw there is a substantial take home assessment. I wanted to see if anyone could verify and share their experience. Thank you!
HI LADIES! I realize we are going through tough times but I wanted to quickly remind you all of how blessed we are. Blessed to see another day ✨ We won’t get this day back so make it count. Take it all in and remember that your current situation is not your final destination. And if you are going through an especially tough time, rock bottom will teach you lessons that mountain tops never will. You will make it past this. 💖 Have an amazing rest of your day ladies 😊♥️

How hard would it be to make the jump from designer to art director? For context, when applying for this job I thought I would be a designer with some ideation opportunities (there are no Junior Art Directors in our creative hierarchy). Craving for more ideation/big-thinking art direction in my next gig.
