Yes, normal.

Ugh

Classic. Consulting firms love when you win them $$$ work but don’t reward you directly for it. It’s so hard to know how it impacts your year end bonus too depending on the firm which I find pretty annoying.

Hey all - curious to learn more about independent consulting (doing your own thing vs. working at a firm). Can anyone here speak to this, specifically touching on: - is there a lot of market demand? What type of consulting is most prevalent, is it only specialized knowledge areas? - how did you get started? - how does it compare to working at a firm, say MBB, in terms of comp, WLB, etc. Thanks for any insights!

Does contributing to 401k beyond the match make sense? You can’t touch it until you’re 59.5. If i were to invest on my own in various etfs Ill pay the 22% tax upfront and then cap gains would be 15% when i sell. I’d have freedom to use that money to invest in real estate. when i pull my yearly salary out in retirement I’d Atleast be in the 22% bracket if not higher. Since the last 3 dem presidents have increased spending like crazy i expect massive tax hikes in the future. Am i wrong?

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.
