Just moved in-house & am hiring a designer - NO clue what salary to propose for this role. Full benefits, mid-level, Chicago-based, mostly designing internal materials (town halls, etc.). Help?
Back when we were travelling, how did team dinners work given the strict per diem? Does Accenture Strategy just never get to indulge in nice meals / drinks? Was one of the best perks of the job ☹️
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Is KPMG more adversely affected by the downturn? Friends at other big four don’t seem to have as many benefits cut or raises and bonuses eliminated. Are we not as fiscally sound or relevant in the market?
Hi 🐠! What are some tangible methods you have successfully used to avoid lifestyle creep?

Could you claim tuition paid to a church for daycare when they were closed due to COVID as a donation? Normally tuition isn’t tax deductible but during these periods of time no reciprocating benefits were received. I plan to talk to a CPA but thought I’d check here?

I am 24 years old and the advice I have been given is to max out my IRA and 401k before investing into a taxable brokerage account. If I do not plan on working until I am 59 1/2, is this sound advice since there is a 10% penalty of early withdrawals for both accounts?
Do I need personal car insurance to rent a car while traveling? Compliance and benefits said 'encouraged', but interested to know if any of you all don't.
Would appreciate thoughts on when to pay of student loans. Have about 40k left @ 4.5% (refinanced twice). I should be able to pay them off in one lump sum in a few months with personal savings. I’m currently paying the minimum, while saving aggressively in HYSA account , contributing to 401k to employer match, and contributing to Roth IRA. Does it make sense to just knock them out or should I increase investments focus? I know there’s likely not a “right” answer but what would you do?
Would you rather get an MBA from any program of your choosing (all loans) or guaranteed 130K/year, 40 hours a week until you retire (no chance for raises/bonuses)?

We have HHI of 260k excluding bonus. Currently own a house (current value is 440k) with 45% mortgage remaining. Planning to buy a new house of 500k. Combined mortgage of both house would be approx 4.7k per month. We both max out 401k and I normally invest 25k via megadoor roth + 2 529s for both kids. Q is Can I afford new house or should I sell current buy and book the profit since realty mkt is so high and our house has the max value currently?

Is anyone’s school system taking any of the lessons learned since last March about education and changing how they do business? Our county is reverting to the pre-pandemic factory model of education. I thought we might have some significant changes in education, but sadly it is business as usual- 7 classes of 25-35 students a day.

What are the odds: I randomly clicked at a profile shown here on the networking bar. Upon checking their LinkedIn, it turns out they used to work at the boutique company I’m currently interviewing for (same role!) and left just a month back for a role in industry.

Vacation ideas for Thanksgiving? Six of us (ages 25 to 60) and everyone’s vaccinated. Thought about going to the Caribbean but I guess it’s the wet/hurricane season at that time.
