BDO had great healthcare premiums 80% covered and office parking paid by partnership, but couldn’t match pay or other perks of B4 in my experience.

Paid office parking varies from office to office. I’ve worked from office that pays no parking to pay a portion of it. BDO only has one healthcare plan( low deductible); whereas Deloitte has several choices range from high deductible to low deductible. B4 perks are nice.

Worked at BDO, now at a Deloitte. Benefits are kind of the same with D has more choice for health insurance, and also has a pension plan. Also, D has way better perks.

Financial Planning Question: I’m planning on buying a house in the next 5 years. My current investment savings is 2/3’s retirement 1/3 towards a down payment for the house.

Is it worth the move and having to leave my extremely secure “network” and role at a Big 4?

EY High Deductible Health Plan vs Open Access Select (don’t have EY bowl access yet) I just started at the firm and am trying to pick my healthcare. I don’t really ever go to the Dr so I’m thinking of getting the High Deductible plan. My question is, what does it mean that it’s not a “national network (Is this a national network?: No)” but it’s “network coverage: see any licensed doctor”? Those seem to contradict. Also HSA vs FSA, as a healthy 26yo, which is right for me (High D only has HSA)
