Does anyone know someone who exited healthcare consulting to pursue a PhD in health policy, health services management, etc? Were they happy with their decision? Is it worth going back to school for 4-5 years? I know I would love academia and research, but at the same time I don’t know if the investment in time and the pay cut (compared to what I’m making now) is worth it. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance
Constantly hearing keeping money just siting in the bank isn’t a good idea and I should have my money “working for me”. So for someone who knows nothing about investing (other than having a 401k and opened a Roth recently), where to begin with investing/where else should I put my money? Stocks require caution due to independence requirements at my current firm.

For those of you who are married… is there any benefit to having one spouse maxing out 401k while the other contributes none? (Assuming you currently contribute ~10k per year each and can’t afford to both be maxing?)
Finished paying off my student loans!! Its like I got an 18% raise. Its a shame Im not exactly sure what to do with this extra money. I dont want to fall into the trap of earn more=spend more. Max 401K? house?
Hi folks, Planning to join Legato Health Technologies. Is it a good option from learning and internal hike perspective? What is the shift allowance and other perks/benefits?
While this may be bad for companies, it opens doors for those looking for work and advancement for the rest of us. Obviously people wouldn’t retire without adequate savings and so I think this is amazing news for us all. Right? Thoughts please. 🤔

I’m eligible for 401k %match from my employer on aug 1 2021. The max total amount I could get from them for 2021 is ~$420. I plan on maxing out & my 401k has an aggressive strategy. Would you wait to contribute until later in the year in order to maximize the match, or invest early in the year for the compound interest gains? Am I wrong to think the latter?
Should i sell off baba stock? Have 17 shares at an average of 270 or so. Lost half of it already. Cut losses or play long run? Don’t want to average down and throw more money at it.

I recently became PMP certified and am working as a Project Coordinator on a large ERP project. I’ve been in the position for 2 months, enjoy the work, and would like more responsibility and work from home. The director made an inappropriate (sexual) comment; it was so inappropriate that I don’t want to work with the company and am looking for a new opportunity. I would like to get into IT, but I don’t have a speciality. What are tech companies looking for in a Project/Product Manager?
Anyone here heard of McKinsey Academy? What is this team like? WLB? compensation? Was approached about a Client Delivery Associate role within the group.

Would anyone be willing to help me / give advice for an interview I have coming up for a strategy consultant role? Most of my experience is tech consulting and I really want to kill this interview

If you make a lump sum after tax HSA contribution, can you still deduct that from your taxes? Assuming it’s all under the applicable limits. Haven’t really contributed much to date, but wife is pregnant and has lots of bills due before year end and would like to use HSA if possible. Thanks!
During 2016, I was selected for wipro as a fresher undergone training, but I did not clear the training exams, so wipro terminated me.During tht time I created NSR profile, after tht I joined another MNC as fresher. I never mentioned wipro exp as previous exp anywhere. Now recently I got a offer frm wipro. here also I did not tell that I was earlier termined by wipro.If wipro asks me to provide NSR details during my joining, does NSR have my previous exp in their db? Does it affect my joining with wipro?
