Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.

28yo single male, no debt, 110k income, LCOL (Dallas). I've been living fairly frugally, maxing out 401k and reached 170k NW. I kind of want to splurge on a LUXURY ($2,100/mo) apartment. It's an amazing place, high rise, 20th floor, large balcony, floor to ceiling windows, loft style in the middle of the nicest part in Dallas 🥰😍 1) would my application even get approved due to my income? 2) is this too much? Open to all opinions! TiA!

Any opinions would be really helpful.
Hello I just started my first job (I’m 22) and I need to set up a 401k for matching with my company. I’m really confused how this works because I want to try to hit the IRS maximum of $19,500 for Roth contributions this year. Maybe it’s too late in the year now, but it’s asking me to pick my desired contribution % per pay period, but I’m not sure how much to do because it says it’ll kick in 1-2 pay cycles and I don’t even know when the next pay check comes yet. Any tips would be great

What would you do - jump now and diversify (to be a more rounded manager in more time) or stay (for fast tracked manager w narrower expertise)?
