Hello, anyone from Akamai technologies, Bangalore?? Need some info on the employee benefits (covid benefits). Thank you.
Anyone have experience with being laid off after coming back from maternity leave? My family member recently did and we have email documentation that it’s related to her maternity leave...
Do you tip the housekeeping staff at the hotel? If so, how much? And do you expense this or consider it part of your per diem?
I am very conservative in investment. Have $650K in CDs/HYS, $50K in stock funds, and maxing out 401K. I have no debt except $520K of house mortgage @ 2.6% interest rate (house value is approx $1M). Does it make sense to pay out a portion of the mortgage or should I invest more in the market?
Considering a move to KPMG for their pension plan. Can anyone give me details for their plan? Also any other advice regarding KPMG.
I’m sure this won’t come across well but I have to say it… my husband and I make good money (about $600k combined) and are grateful for it but these Biden tax increases are going to kill us. The truly rich don’t get hit hard meanwhile it sucks to be an upper middle class family. No matter how much I make somehow my take home seems to keep going down.
Has anyone taken one of those online executive courses, like the Harvard Extension School offers? Looking to use my $5k of tuition reimbursement and already have an MBA. Worth it? Best programs?
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Free and Reduced Lunch, pensions, health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, caring for your neighbor, and PUBLIC EDUCATION. That’s just a small list of things I’m told I should hate because they’re all socialist. I’m not at all sorry to report that I’m FOR all of those things. Call me whatever you want.
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.
What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits. Apparently it is quite a tough study. Is it worth the time or should I invest my time elsewhere? Also do you have learning material you are willing to share :D?
I’m changing jobs and near my 401k limit in my current plan. How do I limit contributions with my new employer while still maximizing the match?
Have 3 401k and 1 ira account. Now have to consolidate all of them in vanguard. Any recommendations on how to move them Looking for options to take advantage of rollover.
401k or Roth ira which is better
What should you allocate to traditional and ROTH 401k if you want to max out your contribution?
Anyone else feel like we’re all getting a raw deal on healthcare? Switched to industry and one 30 minute doc appointment is $450 out of pocket.
🐟s: I'm trying to decide which credit card to axe if I get approved for the CSR. Are there any real benefits of the American Airlines Advantage Citi Platinum Card? At $95/year,time to get rid of it?
EY - are tennis rackets and tennis lessons permissible under our $500 fitness reimbursement program?
Do you stay at a good firm with a good reputation where you are siloed in a back office role with no growth or go to a lesser known firm with less track record and opportunity to learn and grow? I’m in an extremely operational role and want to leave but the benefits down the line could be grand. How do you evaluate a decision like this?
New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA. I know everyone recommends backdooring this into a Roth IRA, but if my plan is to move/retire to a state with no state income tax, wouldn't traditional make more sense? Or am I overthinking this? Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!

Given the hot job market, do ya’ll desi fish get inundated with messages from recruiters on LinkedIn? Somehow I have not had even one reach out outside of some boutique firms. Wondering if we are being ignored because of the whole visa thing.
Current undergrad. Have internship offers for two very different roles. The first is a public sector generalist management consulting position in DC. The second is for a smaller early-stage incubation venture capital firm in NYC. I've always been somewhat of a generalist, with varying interests. I feel as though based on my decision my life could go in very different directions... Any insights? Esp if you're in public sector consulting or have made a similar dec. Gratitude.
Is garbage man a good exit op?
When leading a team through a reasonably large process change (e.g. changing from non existent to… something), is it a better idea to adopt a Big Bang approach (huge change, but all at once) or through smaller iterative changes (over many months)? What are the pros / cons of either approach? And any suggestions for dimensions to keep in mind when deciding?
Tired/disgusted about all the gender discrimination and sexual harassment we face at work ? Me too. Post about your experiences on www.hesaidwhaaat.com
So, do B4 typically ghost candidates they are not interested in or do they generally let them know they weren’t selected?
One of my favorite things about consulting is county of origin diversity. Can we do a quick poll here of various CoO represented. Put your flag and have the fellow nationals upvote!
I have a 401(k) plan that I am being requested pricing on for a local medical group. It's about $2M with 57 participants. What would you guys take as far as compensation goes for a plan of this size?
I’m all about that work from home life. However it is insulting and unprofessional when a colleague who is in the office blows off a scheduled meeting with you when you are virtual as they bumped into another colleague in the office. Anyone else noticing issues like this now that we are in this hybrid mode. How do you address it?
Wife is a US citizen and I’m a Canadian citizen. We both live in Canada. She can cross the US land border from Canada because US citizens are exempted from the travel restrictions. Can I cross with her (from Canada to US) as her spouse?
Have my first phone interview with a really small boutique firm. Hope it goes well. Any last minute advice?
Is it okay to give one week notice if your last week is a training week and your unassigned the following week? I’ve already used up all my PTO. I’m just afraid of burning bridges
Once, a M friend said "men are stronger than women, I could dominate you right now" and at the moment I didn't know what to say cause he was in fact bigger and stronger than me. But this is something that bothers me still... I think people in general, regardless of gender, have different abilities and it is not a matter of comparing but rather understanding how best to use them, for yourself and for the society. It pisses me off to know ppl can think like this, and he is actually a good friend
