Anyone working in PWC AC Kolkata office or anyone aware of the work culture & Employee benefits etc. Pls do let me know in the comments section. I have recently received an offer from the same ..So wanted to know
What's the reason a recruiter would want to know my current benefits package (401k match & Salary)? I moderately understand why they try to gauge salary but 401k seems odd. Were they trying to wow me or is there some other reasoning?
Hi Fishes! I am moving to the Dallas area and I am looking for new opportunities in healthcare. I’d like to transition out of consulting into industry. If you know of any opportunities please...
New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA. I know everyone recommends backdooring this into a Roth IRA, but if my plan is to move/retire to a state with no state income tax, wouldn't traditional make more sense? Or am I overthinking this? Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!
For those of you who have taken maternity leave while working at a firm - what level of involvement did you keep with work while away? I mean in terms of checking in with the firm, reading emails, etc. For context, I will be gone for about 8 weeks unpaid.
Been doing a lot more 401k biz and want to eventually do that alone. Want to complement the 401k with group DI/group life. Is it possible with smaller companies? What about group life? Any experience?
Hi Fishes, I have recently joined PwC SDC as an Associate 2. Wanted to know that is there any smartphone reimbursement or mobile phone program here. TIA!
Appreciate some help with evaluating two offers: 1.Non-FAANG big tech: 155k base + 15% bonus + 90k stock + 401k match 2. Late stage startup (expected to ipo in 2-3 years): 130k base + 160k stock. Both are very similar roles in a HCOL city. Is it worth to take a pay cut to bet for the IPO? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
Best firm to work for that is making the biggest impact in healthcare IT and which city?
PwC moms - I am a FTM due on May. I have been with pwc for 6 years now. I want to maximize my STD and maternity leave. How much am I eligible for and how to get the maximum benefit?
At 45, just have 430k saving in 401k, ETFs and saving accounts. I was late starter in consulting. Any advise for making it up to always 800-1’ in next 15 years.
What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits. Apparently it is quite a tough study. Is it worth the time or should I invest my time elsewhere? Also do you have learning material you are willing to share :D?
What salary did you find that you no longer had to worry about money? Basically you didn't have to think twice about buying something you want For reference, currently make 135k in a T2 city but am the sole earner for my family and also have 1200/month in student loans, so still feel like I'm not there yet.
I feel like I am so behind in my savings/finances. Senior 2, I have about $30K in liquid $/cash and $60K total (incl. investments, 401k etc.). I know I made conscious choices to live in my own apartment since graduating (in HCOL area) and lease a car (to be fair, no help from parents and couldn't afford to buy one), but I feel like I'm way behind in life. Anyone else constantly feel like everyone else has more $$?
Deloitte 🐠 Can you please tell, what is the cost for the health insurance for employee + family and what are the different coverage options (e.g. 80/90/100 % plans) ?
Real talk. My employer doesn’t offer 401K or any investment or tax-sheltered vehicles. That said—I have a side company I own but isn’t making income right now. Is it possible to invest in my own company, set up a 401K for myself there and get the 57K/year max contribution? Effectively, if I were to do this, the company would have me on payroll, contribute to 401K and ultimately take a loss.
What are the general thoughts on automatic rebalancing of 401k? Good idea to maximize returns or better to pick some funds and stick to them?
Any financial advice for us younger professionals who have not weathered a recession? I’m nearly three years out of college and it freaks me out to see my (small) 401k losing thousands of dollars.
Second year Consultant who came from a benefits broker. I feel like I am very much still learning the ropes of consulting. Was asked to help on a deck for proposal work for something I have no background/knowledge in. Told by the partner that I wouldn’t be creating content just story boarding and managing and organizing in the deck. The manager, familiar with the proposed solution, however seems to be annoyed with me that I didn’t create content. Not sure what to make of this?

Super bummed - took my health seriously this year, lost 40 pounds, found my love for running again, and was preparing to post a PR marathon in a couple weeks. My first day of tapering and I suffered a grade 3 ankle sprain. Now that my sob story is over - how do I stay healthy and relatively fit while being immobile for a bit? Do I just really need to focus on diet? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
