I’m a manager making roughly $120K, but am interested in exploring different career paths. Most recently, Commercial Real Estate has struck me as an interest. I’m comfortable with the idea of taking a step back in my career (in terms of salary and role level) as long as it isn’t a hard reset (starting again from the very bottom). Any recommendations on how to pivot effectively without encountering severe financial setbacks?
What’s non equity partnership like years 1-5? Specifically, how much does your compensation increase and how do you make your way towards equity partner? Question coming from curious v50 mid level doing finance / corp. work in v busy sector likely to continue for next couple decades. 1st gen.

Obv this has been asked / debated before :)
Will there be a salary bubble like the housing bubble? Hearing how much people with 2-7 yrs experience are getting offered to move companies is blowing my mind. At some point this is not going to be sustainable and salaries will drop back down to reality. However, I am concerned that all of those folks with inflated salaries will get in situations they can’t support after the correction. Then what happens?

Looking for advice on how/when to tell my bosses I’m pregnant. I’m only 8 weeks and have my first doctor’s appointment this week to confirm the pregnancy. We haven’t told any family or friends yet. We have been back in the office since June, so I’m not working remotely. I plan to wait until 12/13 weeks to tell anyone at work. I’m 29 and a 4th year associate. I do work for 4 main partners, though I have closer working relationships with some more than others. Any advice appreciated!

Moms, I am 14 weeks pregnant and I went through a lot of anxiety and depression during my first trimester. This has impacted my relationship with my husband and especially my in-laws. When I am anxious, I need space. But my in-laws wanted to support me by coming over or inviting me over. All that was too much for me. So anytime I was at their place, I would literally just hide in one of the rooms with the lights off. My nausea was so bad that I was having a hard time even thinking straight.
I get there is no such thing as optimal 401k contribution as it varies by person but is 20% too much for someone just starting out? No ROTH offered
Teacher, I need help …. When you see, out of compliance IEPs, students not getting FAPE, treated differently for integration from their peers… who helps you? Union won’t, parents are not even involved with their child so that’s not a help, I emailed all the possible emails for Department of Ed , and all those listed under IDEA/ADA… I don’t know what else to do…
Has anyone used bright horizon’s back up child care? I’m currently juggling my two little ones (almost 1 and 3) because grandma had a procedure that sidelined her for a few weeks. We’ve never done care centers or outside help - so naturally I’m apprehensive, but with busy season ending, these final few weeks are proving to be too much. I can do in home or a center- but my nerves are holding me back, esp for my almost 1 year old.
This might be a dumb question but when folks say max out 401k contributions, do they mean the full 19.5k per year? I usually do the 5% to get my company match.
