401k? Easy to take money out?
Looking for some direction. Just finished paying off my law school debt. I'm 29 years old. $40k in taxable brokerage account, $15k emergency fund (3.5 months), $20k in 401k. In September I'm starting a new job that will pay me $200k which doubles my current salary. Will max my HSA, 401k etc. But should I be making Roth 401k contributions in this tax bracket?
Please suggest. Yoe : 5 years 10 months, Offer from HCL Technologies Designation : Technical Lead, Band :E2 CTC : 22 LPA (18 fixed) Please suggest if is it good to join HCL ? How is the hike and variable pay/bonus ? Is it paid in 100% ? And what are the perks and benefits ?
Is LinkedIn helpful? I only see it as a means to showcase one's experience/education background. Am I missing out on its benefits? Not a lot of big agencies post jobs there (atleast in my city) and the recruiters that do reach out have vague, often marketing-related, job offers.
I feel like I am losing my language and articulation skills day by day and there seems to be nothing I can do about it. Is anyone on the same boat? Can it be because of health issues?
Does maxing out your 401k reduce your taxable income by that respective amount so that you can reduce your tax liability at the end of the year? Sorry if it’s obvious/dumb!
I am looking to switch careers. I have been in my current career for nearly 20 years. I need a change. I have masters degree in instructional technology, health care administration, and English. I am working on trying to work my current skills into today's job market. That is more difficult than I anticipated. I guess I'm wondering if there really is anything out there to switch to? I feel lucky to have a job, but it is getting very depressing and difficult to get up for work.
Is a $25k pay bump enough to move to EY? I’m debating if it’s worth leaving my current company where we get per diem (extra income if you spend smart) vs. Going to EY where you submit actuals.

Interesting read about folks who won’t take vaccines. Lots of different rationales, but they all boil down to people thinking they’re smarter than experts (a common problem in modern America) and a general “you can’t tell me what to do” attitude. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/05/the-people-who-wont-get-the-vaccine/618765/
Just went on LinkedIn. It’s terrifying how similar everyone’s cheesy profiles are. Also so many profiles are beefed up beyond belief. Judging by the profiles, everyone is a top tier corporate god aka data wizard aka game changer. Saw one piece of gold today where a guy said he was a “Healthcare Strategy and Operations Aficionado” lol….I’m a cigar aficionado but this guy is over here is getting a hard on for healthcare
I'm a benefits director at a large company, and we're adding a fertility benefit starting Jan 1. It looks a lot like Deloitte's program (just noticing Deloitte a lot in this bowl), though ours will be slightly more generous with lifetime maxes. I'd love your feedback about what your employers do especially well or poorly, just to ensure we don't have huge blindspots as we roll it out from scratch. Honest feedback from people who are on this journey is appreciated!!

For those back in office are y’all just wearing masks indoors and is it affecting the way you work? I’m pro-vaccine and masks indoors when crowded. But can’t help think it being uncomfortable having the mask on working 8+ hours and taking client calls when you could have it off working at home 🏠

It seems that management doesn’t always understand that employee engagement is tied to many things such as work/life balance, benefits, workload, etc. Any ideas on how to present this type of info to management? We have already done an engagement survey and delivered results but there is lack of action planning which is also not heavily backed up by leadership. Any ideas on how to deliver this message so it makes an impact?
