The only thing worse than a work flight being delayed is a personal one on Christmas Eve. Time to drink away my sorrows.
I accepted an offer from a company based in SF couple of weeks ago for a 70% raise from my current pay (TC). Currently in East Coast. Base pay increase was only 10% and rest is all in RSU’s. I can’t stop thinking if am making the right move. Currently in Big 4, I like my current job & I learn a lot day to day. But very clearly underpaid. Also, Pandemic has put a lot of strain on my mental health. My productivity is all time low, can’t focus and concentrate. (Cont..)
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?

Has anyone been offered a status buy-up for 2021. ~$1700 short of United 1k this year and think my travel will increase a good bit starting next year. Think it could make sense, especially given the 2021 thresholds
This might be a dumb question but when folks say max out 401k contributions, do they mean the full 19.5k per year? I usually do the 5% to get my company match.

I am pregnant, high risk (CH mama from yesterday’s post), and can’t risk getting Covid again. What would you do? Do I ask her to get vaccinated for my/her future niece’s sake? If she doesn’t, should I sit out the wedding events?

Ich habe 5 Jahre Berufserfahrung und komme mit Bonus bei ca. 70.000€ realistisch raus. Kann nicht einschätzen ob das gut oder schlecht ist. Auf dem Papier könnte es mehr sein, aber Wunsch und Wirklichkeit passen da nicht so 🥲 Wie sieht es bei euch aus?
