Freelance Q: any tips on health insurance? There's a myriad of stuff out there ...not sure which one or how to choose.
Is the United Card worth it? Going to have status via match with SPG wondering if the card benefits are worth the annual fee.
Currently make 120k base salary. Can probably get promoted to manager in next 6-12 months. What’s the minimum base salary you’d jump for? Assume similar benefits, bonus, and 401k match. Got an offer for $135k but don’t think that’s worth jumping for. I told the recruiter I could not leave for less than $150k. What do y’all think?
Needed a new roof and hired a carpenter. He stops by my office to pick up paperwork and asks me about my retirement plans. I find out he has about a million in his 401k.
Who here got ****ed in the a** by their health insurance? Had a simple 15 min ear check up with an in-network provider and my bill is $397. Unbelievable. Pls tell me I am not the only one. I can't be.
Anyone have experience using Delta8 THC cartridges? Not even to get high but the actual health benefits.
Age 36. $1M in my investment accounts across 401K, stocks, bonds etc etc. Curious where others stand. I don't own a house yet.
I have a TIA annuity contract from my first job (non-profit) that has around ~$2k in it. I have never touched it or contributed. Should I roll it into my Roth IRA (which I can no longer contribute to due to income limits) or should I start contributing? FTR, I already contribute to a 401k that my employer matches.
So I found out I was pregnant the same day I started a new job. :( How screwed am I in terms of maternity benefits?
About to retire and planing to downsize. My home is now worth ~4m and its outrageous to think that realtors would charge me 6% in fees ~$240k. Should I list by owner? Can I negotiate down realtor fees?
Both my husband and I are in tax and I’m about to go back to work full time after maternity leave. Anyone have similar experiences and how do you deal with a six month old at home while both of you work in PA? Any advise will be appreciated!
I would love to see the federal pension for elected officials be means tested. You want to collect a pension from the government? Cool. Give us your taxes for the last year. Anything below 3 times your salary as an elected person qualifies. You're making a mint on K street? Well, sorry. Uncle Sam isn't gilding the lily.
Have offers from both Accenture and EY. Need help deciding, questions in post. So far Accenture is willing to pay more. Both are management consulting (EY FSO, ACN MC). No idea about benefits yet.
Partners, what types of compensation and benefits do your employees find the most compelling? What are the things they really appreciate? Financial and otherwise.
Has any working mom felt they could negotiate maternity leave policy time off before starting at a new company? Feels forward, but they don’t put it into a benefits package unless you ask what the policy is and find out. However it’s treated with PTO, and that’s sometimes negotiable. Part of me is apologetic about doing this and thinks it could be detrimental to how they view me or worse, could rescind my offer, and part of me thinks I should get what I want to feel comfortable and empowered.
Anyone left EY recently and opted for cash payout from the pension plan? Looking to see how close it was to the estimate calculated in Benefits.
I start at EY in 2 weeks, any really cool benefits I should be aware of? I know the wellness subsidy, but any other tips and tricks would be great!
Anyone remember a spot that was a talking head interview but with line drawings of women in the 'boiling lines' style? Can't remember the product.

How much TC can I expect for Senior Cybersecurity Advisor (level 1 or level 2 depending on how my interview went)? Interviewing for San Francisco location. YOE: 4 years of tech/consulting experience
I can’t help but feel I’m underpaid I was an experienced hire at a boutique consulting firm with 2.5YOE in industry. I have now been working for a year at this firm and only make 75k base salary. I accepted the offer out of desperation at the time and now regret not negotiating a better deal for myself. Would love some advise on how I can get myself the salary I deserve.
I'm a lawyer. Does opening a law firm and forming LLCs corporations and drafting operating agreements, writing wills, drafting leases, dealing with evictions violate my employment agreement?
Desperate to get out of Audit Readiness. Best way to spin experience into a strategy/operations role? Best firms to target?

When 10 partners don't review your 100 slide deck and then go to a 3 hour session with the client leadership.....anxious and scared. #timeforabeerlunch
What are some activities or programs you would participate in (either at or outside of work) to bridge the divide / foster ties between the Asian and Black community? I’m damn proud of being Asian and while I personally find it harder to befriend black people because of my personal lack of culture overlap, I absolutely believe in strengthening ties between all minorities. Know my Asian buds might feel the same or prefer other activities first so crowdsourcing what would make y’all interested?...
BCG people: Considering a move to BCG in Toronto, Dallas, Miami or Atlanta. Thoughts on best office, culture, US vs CA pay, etc.? I’d be a single, mid-30s, PL with no major ties to any of those cities
Elon rumored to leave the Bay Area and move to Nevada/Texas. Covid has likely decimated the NYC economy for the short term, with many companies and employees questioning if they’ll ever go back. What do we think will be the new hot housing market post-Covid? Will NYC/SF/LA recover, or will people move to cheaper COL? Will the net result be 0 change?
