Anyone have perspective on how MBB (specifically Bain) benefits are better than big 4? I heard Bain contributes 4.5% of salary to your 401k regardless of any employee contributions, which is great. Any other big perks that make their benefits package superior to others (eg. Big 4)?

Mck - 7.5% if tc deposited into retirement account regardless of personal contribution. Free healthcare if single, +$15 parter, $25 whole fam

Benefits are unreal. Not only is it free, you make money on healthcare as a couple. Vision is $500/pp annual reimbursement. To put 1 partner on plan is just $180 a year. For family, just pay $300 and get $1000/+ back based on family size.

BCG has about the best healthcare money can buy and we pay 0 premiums, we also get 5% of our TC deposited into a retirement account regardless of personal contributions

The 5% is for A/C and includes all cash comp (base+bonus). Amount is 10% of cash comp. once you become PL.

Health care is biggest perk

10% at PL+

401k advice requested - 25 years old, live in nyc, make 125k. I’ve always maxed my 401k to 19500 with a split of regular and roth. Always do the 6k of Roth IRA too. New firm has no matching policy. I understand the benefits of tax so maxing it is beneficial, however, I’m almost breaking even each month. Is it smart to slow the contributions, keep investing myself so I will have money for a down payment down the road? Don’t want to pull on my 401k if not needed

I know this topic does not get talked about much but will eventually impact almost all of us so here goes. I am thinking of retiring (early) and would love recommendations for countries that I can retire to that. Primary factors would be cost if living, safety, warm climate, good health care system, (preferably) close to the US - not a requirement, stable government and laws, diversity in landscape (beach, rivers, mountains). Definitely not super rich so thinking of 5k a month in expenses.
