Has the blush come off the rose for this shining city on a hill? Have any other foreign fish in the US been asking yourself why we made the conscious decision to seek out a life in this country? The racial tensions and frequent shootings (including a much covered grocery store that I used to frequent) are outweighing the benefits of staying here. Never have I had to worry this much about going to the grocery store. The reaction of society here towards these issues is also dismal. Is it worth it?

I saw a Harvard? study circa 2013ish that said effectively “be most conservative when you retire and get more aggressive as you age”. But can’t find it now. Anyone seen this and know where to find it?

I’m separating from my wife before we can start the divorce next year. This year I’m going to file taxes married filing separately and expect to pay a lot to IRS (salary increased and got allowances for office relocation besides the type of filing). Is anything I can start to do to minimize the tax impact later? E.g maxing out 401k and HSA will help?
Anyone heard of CrowdHealth for health insurance? Seems pretty good for a freelancer and someone who doesn’t usually go to the doctor that much but wants to be insured. https://www.joincrowdhealth.com/
Just realized my firm offers a Roth 401k option. I’ve been contributing pre-tax but now not sure what to do. I know Roth is theoretically better, but is there any reason to do pre-tax? What about a combination of the two?
Is consulting salary across EMEA generally lower than US? Do other benefits and additional holidays make up the lower salary in EMEA? Expats opinion would be awesome!
My husband and I (both 27) max out our Roth IRAs each year, have a complete emergency fund, and I’m able to start maxing my 401K this year (he contributes 10% to his 401K - it isn’t possible for him to max his based on his current pay). We contribute 18% extra towards principal on our mortgage each month. We now have about $20k of additional savings we want to figure out what to do with. What would you recommend to someone who is new to stocks/investments?

One of the SMs is supporting my promotion case but they are lately trying to micromanage me and ask all nagging questions unnecessarily. Unsure how to handle this professionally.

Is it time to leave? I started in late 2019, have pulled almost 20 all-nighters working, took over other peoples clients when they struggled on multiple occasions, never missed a billable hours goal, and prepared/gave training presentations for coworkers. I started a little bit before Covid and there were no bonuses given out by my firm so far in my career until this year because of it. I was passed up for my first real bonus with no explanation. Is it time?
Trump wants to ban Tik Tok. If he added Facebook and Instagram Stories + all the social media rules to his ban, I'd vote for him. Imagine a world without the 9x16 format. Imagine a world without anyone telling you to "add more branding before 6 seconds". Imagine a world without any brief saying "there's a great opportunity to use Tik Tok". That's the kind of thing the humanity needs.

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
Why do I feel so guilty about wanting to take another offer and leaving my team? I like my current teammates just HATE the client and project. I’ve also asked for a raise multiple times and have been told no. I’m underpaid but am up for promotion this year (June). I don’t think Deloitte can/willmatch. I want to take the money but I feel like I’m still learning leaderships skills and can see the potential for beefing out the management portion of my resume. What would you do? (Offer 50% more)
