Are firm holiday party's always formal? Ours has been formal in the past but was always at formal venues. This year it's at a fratty-ish bar so really dressy would seem weird

No, varies by year.

In Atlanta it's cocktail party 'wear'.

My first holiday season in-house after a couple of decades in private practice, doing the same kind of transactional work that I’ve always done. My year is functionally done. No one else is around or working. I’ve been so conditioned to expect to grind out through the holidays that it makes me think of how Brooks in Shawshank had become “institutionalized.” I only worked hard the last couple of days because I set some deadlines so as to get things tied up before the holidays - the old mindset!

Looking to get some insights in PwC's bonus policies. I have an offer from PwC in their Salesforce practice and the bonus offered is a range of 27% to 35%. But they have not included that bonus % in the offer letter. For those who have worked at PwC, is this a norm? Have you seen them follow through the Bonus payout? Does the bonus % change significantly from YOY? What are the individual objectives/targets that need to be met at the Sr Manager level to earn the bonus?

It seems that common advice after getting your emergency fund, is to max out 401k, then IRA. But 401k limits are relatively high at $19500. Is that really where I should be putting all of my money prior to investing in my IRA, or should I invest only what my employer will match? I feel like if I aim to max out 401k limits, I’ll never touch my IRA.
