What are some benefits of mid-tier firms vs the big 4. Is there actually a thing as work-life balance? Do hours really get capped at 55 during busy season? Do the external opportunities get worse without the big 4 name recognition?
Besides pay/benefits, what are changes that happen when you move from a C to M levels? Do you have access/exposure to different tools that help you do your job/take on bigger responsibilities?

Self-directed IRAs. So many questions! Have any of you ever tried a self directed IRA? I’m thinking about it in relation to investing in a company (to the tune of 150-200k) or possibly purchasing a vacation property as an investment in a location we’d like to retire (if I did that, could we use it to vacation personally occasionally in the meantime? Even if we needed to pay the IRA for the rental?) Thoughts? Warnings?

Advice to young lawyers. Read a book. I saw the thread about savings and many young lawyers (20s and 30s) don’t know how to open up a brokerage account or invest in their 401k. I know they don’t teach personal finance in school (though they should!), but my advice is that you should go to your local library and read a book about the subject. You have the skills necessary but you must invest in yourself. No one will look out for you.

Does anyone have an idea of base comp for BizOps and StratOps at Stripe and the yoe that determine leveling? More specifically, I’m trying to gauge what the high end of the band is for a L2 and L3. I was told145-155 for L2 and 180 for L3. These are pretty tight bands and typically there’s more variance within a band. From what I have observed/people I have spoken to L3 is generally 5 yoe or more. But there are people who have 5 yoe that are placed at L2.

Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.

Can i just move that money back to capital one and get a bonus? Or would it count as “old money” and disqualify me from bonus since im just transferring the funds back to capital one from chase? How do they do determine this? Thank you!!
