Apologies for the dumb question but what exactly does partner mean in today’s world? In olden times it would have meant you were a partial owner right? Does it still? Or does it just mean extra highly paid employee with a lot of leadership responsibilities? We don’t use the term at Accenture of course since we’re public, but I’m curious what it really means at b4 or MBB, beyond just extra high paychecks? Are there actual partner benefits, like owning private shares of the company?
PSA: with bonuses coming up don't forget to plan ahead for how you'll handle the windfall (e.g if you don't want a big chunk going into your 401k reduce you contribution percentage). http://www.investopedia.com/articles/personal-finance/062014/five-tax-strategies-bonus-or-windfall.asp
I have 60k worth of student loans from a grad program with an interest rate less than 5%. Would it be wise to continue to max 401k and Roth IRA, and pay the remaining into student loans or reduce retirement contributions and pay off loan ASAP?
For our Canadian friends, have you heard of Sparkrock? Culture/ wlb, type of rock, comp & benefits
I countered with a recruiter and they responded to my concerns and questions with “don’t worry about PTO days, I don’t even take them”, “you’re focused on the wrong things” (when speaking about health insurance costs), “I can’t see them going for that (my counter), let me see your experience again, 10 years hm”, “it’s really not an apples to apples comparison, this is a really good offer, don’t focus on that other stuff”. Don’t do this! I was leaning towards taking the job and now I may pass.
Is consulting really even worth it anymore if I have to pay for my own food now and travel moving forward is going to be at the max 1/3 of what it used to be (if things are ever “normal” again) so all those benefits we forced ourselves to accept as worth are now gone?
What should I do if I accidentally go over the maximum individual 401k contribution? I’ve changed my contribution but it won’t kick in before my next paycheck, which will put me slightly over the limit.

Has anyone filed taxes after a 401k/IRA withdrawal under the CARES act? Seems like Turbo tax does not accommodate the change yet, so I'm wondering how ppl have done it (if they have so far)?
Rookie question - i had a vanguard 401k with my old firm and now have a different one with my new firm. What happens to my old 401k? Does it get merged with my new one?? How does 401k’s work when u move from one firm to another

The dumbest of all questions, but bare with me I am a youngin. Any money I invest in a 401K, what exactly does it get invested in? Can I pick stocks from that money or no? I use vanguard.
What’s the best place to save money besides 401k and Roth? One that preferably isn’t restricted until retirement
Got an offer from a really small consulting firm that offers no health insurance or 401k match. Otherwise the firm seems like a great fit and something I’d love to be a part of. What are some things I should consider with the lack of benefits? I’m thinking I should negotiate a higher offer to make up for it? Thoughts?

Hi fishes 🐟 Wondering what’s the salary for senior risk consultant like in London? Thanks for your input! Deciding on my offer now.
I just received a job offer for a position that better aligns with my skills and education. It’s also something I want to do and would get me out of banking, so to speak. The proposed salary offer is only 10% more than what I am making now, though. I currently have a fully remote job and have tons of free time and flexibility. I love my current job as it affords me time with my kids and it’s stress free. The new job is in an office setting and will have more responsibility. Not sure what to do?
Did you know? “Women receive ‘negative personality criticism’, such as being called bossy or told to ‘watch their tone’ in around 75% of performance reviews. Men, on the other hand, rarely do.” From https://cultureplusconsulting.com/2018/03/10/gender-bias-work-assertiveness-double-bind/
Currently at EY senior 3 up for promotion to manager just interviewed with Deloitte and people seem great! Salary increase is amazing… is this a good decision hmm… you guys tell me. I have no issues with EY but my salary is not what I would like it to be and when I promote I don’t think they will come close to offer from Deloitte.
How do you ask/negotiate a sign-on bonus if not mentioned? Assume most positions today with a $220k+ base + bonus + RSUs can command one. Is that accurate?

Can someone help me calculate the differences in a SEP IRA with a lower base pay vs. a higher base with 401k pre-tax contributions? Employer pays the SEP but I figure if I got a higher base and paid into the 401k myself I’d still get the tax benefit.
