Help with an offer at pre-IPO tech unicorn. Current: 112k base, 15k bonus, 3YOE Offer: 120k base, 16k bonus, no sign-on, 70k RSUs vesting 25% after 1 year and 7% each quarter after that. I’d like to ask for 135k plus 10k sign-on since I’m forfeiting 5k bonus and another 8-9k in unvested 401k. Is that reasonable? I’d be ok with 130k and 5k sign-on

Anyone here travel with their dog in the cabin domestically? How strict are airlines about the size of the dog bag? I’m flying JetBlue later this month with my dog but none of the bags that meet the JetBlue’s dimension requirements will fit my dog..
one of my biggest personal accomplishments this year was telling my team that i’m taking a day off for a mental health day. i know that doesn’t seem that big, but i’ve always felt guilty for wanting to take a personal day for my mental health. i’m fortunate enough to have a team that is receptive and understanding of it.

Exit opportunity suggestions for a tax manager? I currently earn $100K, but specialize in small to medium sized businesses in a smaller metro area. With zero experience in audit/internal control/GAAP/SEC/SOX/finance, I don’t see how I could possibly land a six figure position in industry (even remote positions from metros that pay more). With my health off the rails after nearly a decade in public accounting, I’m honestly starting to look even at positions in the $70s. Suggestions welcome.

Admittedly a men’s fashion question, but looking for men’s tech/fintech fashion advice for my dad. His old-school insurance company was acquired by a more techy company, and he is trying to figure out what to wear. Any advice? I already sent him the midtown uniform Instagram page as some jokes/inspiration but that seems more finance and less tech. Thanks!

I graduated June 2019, started full-time September 2019 and I feel like I have been so bad with tracking, saving, and overall being responsible with my money. My savings amount has been pretty stagnant for as long as I remember and I don't do any "investing" apart from contributing to my 401K and making HSA contributions. Can't help but feel like I'm behind everyone and don't know how to get myself out of this rut feeling. Any tips for how to turn myself around (i.e. creating budget, etc.)?

I went for my h1b visa stamping and got a section 221g and they gave me the passport back and i received an email asking for background information for past 15 years to which i responded with a detailed response. This was my second h1b stamping, i got the first one successfully last year with no issues, and not sure why i got section 221g this time. I had not changed any job, the stamping was for the same exact job. Anyone has any insight or been in the same boat? Should i be worried?
