so.. savings mode.. 401K check, HSA check, Roth IRA check - all maxed out. rest in index funds in my brokerage account. Small DCA 300$/month in crypto over a bunch of coins - eth, btc, solana etc. two questions: what else can I do? I see people mentioning they also have traditional IRA on top of this - why?
Does it always make sense to max out your HSA? I have ~$6k parked there now as a healthy 28 yo with virtually no healthcare utilization
Just gotta tell someone and it’s totally gauche to tell anyone I know. My husband and I just hit a million dollars net worth—well, it was probably a few days ago but we just updated the spreadsheet with his 401k balance. AHHHHHH! I had planned to celebrate the occasion with a fancy restaurant dinner but we’re not going out during the pandemic. I’ll have to dig some steaks out of the freezer!
My 401k is currently maxed out, I hear I should max out Roth IRA, but looking online, looks like you need to make less than 122k- I make more than that. What else can I contribute to?
Interesting statistic I just saw: Today 50% of women aged 30 do not currently have children. This is the highest it’s been since they began keeping records of it. 🤯
I am lateraling. My start date is Sept. 7. I was planning on giving my current firm notice on Aug. 2 so my last day would be Aug. 13 and I would have a few weeks off before starting the new gig. Was just perusing the employee handbook of my current firm and found that the separation policy requires at least 4 weeks’ notice. I’ve never heard of this before, and I’m at a loss as to what I should do. I don’t want to lose the time off but don’t want to lose benefits for Aug. either.
A coworker just compared my maternity leave to her honeymoon asking if I turned off notifications on my Slack. Trying to remain calm…

Looking to move to a state that will not mandate school vaccines for my kids. I need more research before deciding to administer it to my little ones. I am not looking for advice on vaccines, just wondering where to move. Somewhere with great public schools so my kids can learn and so I can continue teaching. Would love a state that has great benefits and pay for teachers.
Can you be a socialist/antifascist and a work in biglaw? I am a biglaw associate, currently working in a practice area where I feel my work benefits society as a whole and not mainly our clients at the expense of others. I am also a socialist and care deeply about issues like systemic racism, climate change and the huge differences in income and wealth in this country. People with an income like me and partners in particular should be taxed way more. Any other biglaw folks who feel the same?
Incoming grad in May 2022. I got an interview at Alphasights, and Arbolus Technologies in NYC, and completing the Accenture assesment right now. Can someone give me insight into the salary in NYC or in general for either of these companies? Any advice on where else I'd be qualified to apply? I'm a Social Work major and I've a got a ton of healthcare experience as a medical assistant, research projects (was pre med). I have a great GPA and great EC's, and some awards. No other experience :/
Hi lovely fishes! Need your advice on how much house to buy? First time home buyers so nervous. Both of us are 34, married no kids yet. Make combined $550k and live in a no income tax state. We have $350k in retirement accounts. Maxing out 401k, Roths, a vanguard brokerage account plus $50k emergency cash. Student loan $150k. Everything we like is priced $1 to $1.3m. Husband loves vanguard index funds, thinks better to invest there instead of buying an expensive home. appreciate your advice.
Anyone use the platinum rather than regular corporate AMEX? Do you see the benefits or rather get them from a personal card?
Is the fuel reimbursement policy applicable for all levels of employees? Do they cut that part from our salary or give us a separate reimbursement?
How do you guys start over in terms of saving for future and building emergency fund? Lost around $200k trading options during pandemic. Have ~$50k in 401K and ~$20k CC debt.

If you were going to open up a Consultant Happy Hour friendly bar, what are some names you'd use for drinks or a bar name? The outside patio= "The Slide Deck"
ACN folks, what are the pros and cons of TC vs MC? I'm in TC at the moment and have been thinking about switching to MC as my skills are more relevant there.
I'm definitely more productive remote. The office just provides too many opportunities for socializing. Plus I wouldn't feel ethical billing my client for my midday nap.
Serious question: How do you guys cope with loneliness? And even more so when you no longer have anyone to talk to because everyone is coupled up and happy and you don't want to bother them?
The delta gate told me that I hit the jackpot although I paid the full price for my first class ticket.

If you were allowed to remote work from anywhere right now where would you move in the US?
Sent an email to someone with an OOO, but I also have an OOO... Is outlook smart enough to stop the cycle?
Bonus talk today -$500 raise, $150 bonus I cannot make this shit up. Started in late July And was told by the recruiter before I signed paperwork that I should expect a min of 3.5% raise and 2K bonus
This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids
Hey counselees - I want you to succeed. But you gotta give me at least something to work with!!!
Any ides when IDES (Illinois Dept of Employment Security) will actually call you back if at all? I’m missing a week of pay even though I answered all the questions. Think I’ll ever see that week’s pay ever again?
