Do Capgemini gives monthly internet bill reimbursement? Also is any other work from home reimbursement budget is there? Capgemini
I want to order a treadmill using well being subsidy. If I order one worth 40k, and submit its bill, will I get 25k reimbursement and the remaining 15k is out of pocket right? I'd like to order this using my husband's Amazon account and pay using his card. Will I still get reimbursed ?
My firm pays contract partners using a K-1. Is that normal? The taxes are crazy - we have offices in so many states and with the cap on the SALT deduction it is awful. Also do firms provide matching 401k for contract partners? I am at an Amlaw 200 firm (not Biglaw) for comparison purposes. I’m not trying to compare to the really high end firms. Just trying to figure out if I’m getting as raw a deal as it seems.
Has there ever been an effort to organize/unionize adworkers the way we see with the Writer's Guild? There are a lot more people in this business than in entertainment. Healthcare access?
I know this is a loaded question and “depends on the standard of living you want to enjoy” but how much is enough to retire? Like I’m looking for an actual number. 5M? 10M? What’s your number and why?
Should I open an IRA Roth account? Need suggestion on better allocation. Im mid 20s, making 80K pre-tax. My allocation is as followed: 1) 401k account has only $21K. 5% in Roth and 3% in pre-tax, no IRA account yet. My company matches 100% up til 3%, and 50% til 5%. 2) 85K in stocks, including both base and profits 3) 50K in real estate 4) 25K emergency funds. No debt. Should I open an IRA roth account and max it out? Not sure what my goal is. Im 40% high risk high reward, 60% stability.
Hoping to max out my 401k this year but i think the market could decline in the first half of the year. Anyone else lowering contributions to start the year off then raising it later on? Or are people sticking with time in the market > timing the market?
Pretty new to Talent Acquisition since I used to work HR for the gov. I really like the pace of recruiting/ sourcing, but I think I am a little underpaid considering I have no benefits on contract/ RPO outsource. But as I was looking at other JDs in postings to get a better idea. I noticed a lot of companies specifically ask for in-house or agency experience... Some even say ( no RPO ) Can someone explain to me why? Apple Google Amazon
How do you feel about your firm's benefits package, on retirement (401K), PTO, parental leave, and health insurance? Curious to see whether and how you think your firm needs to make adjustments.
EY folks, why does Independence ask that your spouse rolls over their ex-employer's 401k to a current one? What if the spouse doesn't want to do it? What are the options?
Anyone here at pwc and recently went on maternity leave? How many weeks did u take? And do you accrue pto during that time? I would think you can use disability benefits first and then add the 8 weeks parental leave and then use your pto. Just didn’t know if you still accrue during your paid leave. Thanks
I want to FIRE. IRA and 401k are beyond my definition of the ‘RE’ idea since they can only be withdrawn without penalty at 55. Is the only other way to save for retiring at 40-55 an individual brokerage account and just accept the tax upon withdrawal?
What is your firm’s paternity leave policy?

How much would you spend on a car if you make 70k a year? 23 y/o, 14k in debt, 75k in investments. Want to retire as early as possible.
Does anyone else find it challenging to max out their 401k? I know it’s almost the first thing recommended here but contributing $20500 for someone making $70k is different than if you’re making $150k. I’m slightly envious of you guys
