Working with a financial advisor who is trying to sell me on Indexed Universal Life Insurance (IUL) as an investment vehicle. Supposedly there’s no downside risk and 5-7% returns and it’s not taxed. It seems too good to be true and makes me raise an eyebrow. Wondering if anyone has any insights into this or if my advisor is taking me down a risky path.

Moms, I am 14 weeks pregnant. At KPMG, the new year starts in October and basically by spring of the following year, so April 2021, is when they put people up for promotion for the following year. My goal is to make it on that promo list in April 2021 - But thats when I am due. When should I inform my team that I am pregnant and how do I let them know that I am still willing to work hard for this promo despite my pregnancy? Thank you!
If you get some development points and a partially at level in your third year, are you screwed for promotion?
I'm a first year and just received a raise, even though I haven't been at the firm for a year yet. It's a great amount, and I'm so thankful. The partners told me in person but I'm just wondering if I should ask them to put it in writing, just to confirm it and in case anything happens down the road? If I learned anything as an attorney, it's to always have everything in writing lol
Guess who makes me feel better after a rough day at school... my dog :) Thank goodness for our fur babies! Raise your hand if you agree!
Does having a “veteran” designator play any part in the promotion advancement or internal growth? Haven’t seen a lot of ex-military in the firms.
What is the path to a GC for a senior associate on a TN? I’ve been with my firm since college (2 years) - firm policy is that they initiate the process after a two year tenure (and provided you are senior associate rank, at minimum). Will I be able to pass the PERM evaluation? If not, would things get easier with a subsequent promotion? Or would it be best to lateral to a new firm and start the process there? Sorry, super green when it comes to this
Front row. Empty middle seat. Heading back home. Promotion confirmed. Cheers everyone 🥃

Been getting approached by multiple recruiters for boutique consulting firms, and salary expectations never seem to align (mine are too high). I’m an experienced A in S& up for promotion fairly soon, which is why I benchmarked my salary expectation to SA level (140k base - even gave a slight discount there). More details: I’m happy where I am, with no great desire to move. Should I generally be setting lower expectations? What would your considerations be?
Have you guys noticed a difference in reactions when asking for a raise from men/women supervisors? I feel like the women supervisors that I’ve asked get really uncomfortable and look at me like I’m asking for a lot, whereas the men at least are a bit more composed in their reaction and almost expect it. I don’t know though as I only have 2 situations to go by. any thoughts? Curious to know others’ experience

Currently a third year associate. I don’t have any desire to move to a private audit role ever - should I be looking to get out immediately or would it benefit me to wait until senior or manager to attempt to pivot out of auditing? I’d like to get into more of a finance or consulting position.
How do you repeatedly turn down work for one partner or effectively avoid working with a particular person within your firm? Assuming hours are met and your standing is strong otherwise.
