Best ESPP plans out there? I know Adobe does 25% comp at a 15% discount on a 24 month lookback period…is that the best? Anyone aware of any that are better than that?

Probably not depending on how lookback is determined if just beginning and end, I’d want a shorter lookback period. I don’t really put a ton of emphasis on percentage of salary as the IRS caps qualifying plans at 25k anyway and even 10% gets me there.

There are non qualified plans. For qualified plans discounts cannot be more than 15% and fmv of stock can’t be more than 25k a year

Accenture

Haha meh. 10% up to 150k at 15% of market price on purchasing date isn’t that great. If they took off the 150k max or raised it to 15% or had a lookback period it’d be a lot better.

Recruiting pitch! Recently left EY (I was so unhappy) for a smaller firm that really emphasizes WLB. Salary is decent, benefits are great, hours are reasonable, and the people are awesome (most are ex big 4 but with none of the attitude). We also get overtime pay if you happen to work more than 40 hours (!!) We have a ton of needs (seniors and up) right now so pls DM me if you enjoy the work you do but hate the hours/stress/lack of balance/independence requirements 🤗
