Need some advice. I’ve been working with my current employer for 10 months. I have a bachelors in business management and 4.5 years of experience in different functions of HR & have worked for large organizations such as Blue Cross Blue Shield. Someone was hired in my team recently and I found out that this person makes $27K more than me. This new team member has 3-4 years of experience in HR and a BS in Psychology. They are the Sr HR Specialist and I am HR Specialist. Continue in comments

Not bragging or showing off, but our household TC is £225k excluding bonuses. Somehow we manage to save £6k a month after paying out mortgage & bills and then a further £2k in corporate pension schemes. We invest our savings but the feeling of putting away £8k each month feels great. I thought when I'd get to this stage I'd have more desires to spend the money but there is nothing I can honestly think of right now that I'd love to buy. I didn't even spend a penny during the black Friday sales

Indexed Universal Life Insurance (IUL) - Anyone have one of these ? Never heard of this until the other day when a financial planner mentioned it. He said it’s a better vehicle than 401K.

Pros/Cons ? Something to add on including the standard 401K, Roth, HSA, etc ?

Just found out that one of my colleagues got promoted from AAE to SAE in one year. I’m incredibly happy for her, but I’m also feeling a little bothered since we joined the agency almost at the same time and I, on the other hand, didn’t get promoted this year (not even a pay raise). We’re on a different department (I work in Digital) and I’m happy for her but it makes me a bit uneasy. Should I be bothered? How can I be better advocate for myself during reviews?
