I recently received a VP offer at AlixPartners, can someone at AP help me understand this new profit sharing/ longevity bonus they have? The HR rep was not very clear given how new it is. I presume it is additive to any annual bonus or 401k match, correct? How does it work? How long is the vesting period? Etc.
Any updates on bonus, increase and promotion?
What’s the best time to switch jobs after maternity leave? Is there any policy at Blackstone on how long we need to stay after maternity leave?

Pissed off a managing partner, what to do? Here is what happened: - talked about a way forward, agreed on next steps (not clearly enough) - I did the wrong next steps given we had apparently different understandings (realised it afterwards; no severe risks resulted) - now he accuses me that I purposely misunderstood him and that I acted this way to gain personal benefits of it (wtf) - doesnt believe me that it was due to failed alignmemt - insists that I am lying How to deal with that?

Are there any CA family law firms looking to contract out work (legal research, drafting briefs, disclosures, forms, discovery, etc.)?

My wife and I would like to retire at age 50 (or earlier). We’re in our early 30s. We’ve been maxing out 401ks and IRAs for years and started contributing 20k a year into a taxable account to start filling the gap since we can’t access 401k until 55. At what point should we be reducing 401k/IRAs and redirecting to the taxable account? Otherwise our income balloons late in life. Curious how others are managing this.
