Neither of my parents have a 401k, investments, or savings. They have nothing. I want to help them retire at 65 which would be about 15 years away. I’m looking to put about $15k/ year until then into an account for them. A couple questions i have though: 1. What type of investment account would be best to maximize? 2. Once gifted to them, will they be taxed if they receive a certain amount? I have little to no knowledge in investing so I’m open to any other ideas and/or advice.

Hi folks, New joiner!! I do see a lot of negative feedbacks on WLB in Deloitte.. as it is not my first Big4, I do see normal work culture and WLB which was in my prior Big4s. If I do compare it with Infy or other ITES than yes it is horrible here. There is a big difference in working hours and actual constructive work, people from consulting can relate it. One small thing if new joiners or D folks are so unhappy why they want be with the organisation..
