What generally produces better returns - 401k invested in index, or landlords with leverage?
I’m leaving EY and got a note that I am eligible to be paid out my 401k balance. This is the first time I’m leaving a firm, so not sure if I should do this, or is there a way to transfer the account to the new employer? Which one is better?

Is it normal for a Partner to tell me “you know this will delay your promotion by 6 months” a day before my STD for mental health reasons? (P.S. He assumed I took the leave for mental health reasons although I never mentioned that to him). He also said “people like you leave and never come back so make sure you talk to your sponsors before making any decision, there are people who are excited to work with you”.. the conversation is on replay in my head

Does anyone know what can be done for erroneous negative reviews on health grades or similar websites? There’s a patient who wrote a review about me and I checked months worth of notes - I never saw this patient. She cited a virtual visit that we don’t do at the office and said the appointment was at a time I wasn’t at the office. Not sure why they wrote the review but I wish it could be removed because I’m worried it will affect my future career prospects. Thanks!

Looking at 401k. Some funds are -10%+ YTD, others are -1% YTD. Does that mean there is more upside to the -10%+ YTD funds? I'm staying away from energy ones, but looking at VEIRX, -17% for the year

Someone want to explain how everyone in consulting can be this duped... we accept promotions for more responsibilities without knowledge of compensation... that literally doesn’t happen anywhere else.

Kind of a different question ... for those who made the move to PE, any questions or things you wish you would’ve asked / known when you were interviewing that you know now working in the role?
I asked a vice chair in my group to talk informally about working remotely going forward (we already are remote now and was largely flexible pre covid) and also a possible pay bump. This is my first salary/work benefit negotiation and I’m so nervous I might just unhire myself before we actually get to talk 😭😭
EY folks - Is it possible to claim phone expense if you are in a group plan? I have paid my share of the bill through Amex but the cumulative bill is not in my name as I am not the account owner. Would this work?
For those that are observing yom kippur, have an easy and meaningful fast. For those with Jewish people on your teams, don’t wish them a “happy Yom Kippur” or ask them to “enjoy the time”- it’s a solemn holiday. It’s also not the responsibility of the Jewish person on the team to teach you about the holiday - you have Google. And it’s really terrible to guilt them for signing off early/taking PTO to observe.
Thoughts on Indexed Universal Life Insurance as an investment vehicle? I hear the pros and cons from the sellers of this, whom I understand gain heavy commissions. But wanted to get thoughts from investors and if this isn't a good vehicle, what alternative investment vehicles do you suggest (outside of stocks, Roth, 401k, and real estate)? Looking to diversify my portfolio. I'm 43, married, income 600k combined, and we have 2 properties worth 3m and investment accounts worth ~2-3m. Thanks!

I went through a pretty rigorous interview process for a marketing project manager but ultimately wasn't given job. Though most of the feedback was positive, the other candidate had more direct experience with the job responsibilities (digital assets, social media, etc.) My job/company dabbles in digital but it's primarily traditional media. How do I again the experience if I'm limited by the type of work we do?
