I saved 50% of my take home on 85k. Saving in NYC isn’t impossible. Hell its not even hard, it’s just a trade off between housing, location, lifestyle, debt, etc.

I save about 25% on $120k but I’m also putting 13% into my student loans too. The key is to really put thought into tour living situation and how you spend money on your free time. I split a 1Br with my SO and we try to do lots of free/cheap things in the city instead of dining out or clubbing. Most of our disposable income is spent on international travel. Cook at home, and think hard about your lodging situation and you’ll be well on your way to saving.

It’s totally possible. Honestly it depends on how much you wanna spend on rent. My SO and I choose to spend less on rent so that we have more disposable income to travel and do other fun things + save at the same time.

I am in the process of transferring internally to EYP, but received an offer from a small/boutique financial consulting firm with a 30% bump in base comp (and a significant bonus at year end). I was never planning on staying in consulting for longer than a couple more years, but how much is the brand at EYP going to benefit me in the future vs a relatively unknown (but reputable) firm focusing on a niche market? I am extremely conflicted.

I got a bonus from my old Boston based employer in January 2021, by which time I’d moved to NYC for business school.

Do I have to pay NY taxes on this bonus?

Hi , 1.Does Accenture pays the variable pay 100 percent ? How is it paid (half Yearly/quarterly/yearly)? 2. Does the joining bonus is paid in full in the first month of joining itself ?

Decision - I was out the door of my nationwide ins dfense firm. Was going to top local firm with a lot more clout where everything would be private pay and I’d be more on bigger exposure cases. However, my firm outmatched the new firm, made a much better bonus structure, and said I could do more work with their complex bus lit group. I’d still likely do about 50 percent ins defense but I really like the partners I work for, and I handle own cases/take depos, and get autonomy. Am I right to stay?

I was caught off guard at my compensation meeting by getting a raise to $100k but also getting a promotion. The raise was decent and it was the minimum I was expecting, but since I got promoted as well I thought the amount should have been higher. We offered a potential candidate $100k for my previous title. For future reference, how can I bring that up without sounding ungrateful and unappreciative? Thoughts?

I’m making just under $55k. I haven’t had movement in my salary in around two years. My best work has come in the last two years, however, and my managers are aware of this. A promotion - god/holding company willing - is anticipated in 2021. I was told by a coworker in 2017 this next step in my career would be at $60k. That was then, though. With all of this in mind, am I out of touch to try and negotiate closer to $70k if need be?

Will also be managing teams around the world, so opportunity to travel internationally, which is a perk in my book.
