Differences among benefits across MBB?
Infosys reached to me today offering a new role… after some research, not interested. PTO: too low (10 days), 401k 3%, Comp. and bonuses seem low from employee feedbacks. Cannot take a role with higher responsibilities and low comp and PTO lol
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)!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.

New mom here currently on my maternity leave! Both my spouse and I are working from home because of covid. I go “back” to work in January when baby will be 3 months old. Because we are working from home, we are contemplating balancing her and work between the two of us (until she is more mobile/active) and introducing pumping to help baby and me get used to it for when/if we do go back into the office. Would that be manageable? And at what age did you put baby in childcare (nanny? daycare?)?

Setting up a 401k for the first time. Did you decide to do pre-tax or post-tax? Why did you decide that? Retirement savings and options are all overwhelming!
I left my former employer in Q4 2019 but didn’t rollover my Roth 401k prior to the crash, so I’ve left it there this whole time and it’s rebuilt nicely (not back to where it was, but closer)...cont
About to close on our first house and wondering if you can pay mortgage using credit cards to get additional point benefits (or a prepaid debit card that is replenished using a credit card). Don’t want to let 30k worth of expenses go without benefits if at all possible. Thanks in advance
EY - are tennis rackets and tennis lessons permissible under our $500 fitness reimbursement program?
Can't decide if this thinking is crazy or smart: Staying in consulting for another 1-1.5 years for good maternity healthcare benefits and smoother pathway to ramp off and back on work, with opportunity to extend leave further with limited professional risk (e.g., in corporate a backfill might become your permanent fill). Worried that this A.) could result in staying much longer than planned B.) would still ultimately result in crazy consulting hours and C.) wouldn't go as smoothly as idealized
Just realized, I didn’t max out my 401k this year. Any way I can still contribute and count towards 2018 cap?

Had my 401k in all VINIX last year, and it served me well. I rebalanced to 20% large cap, 20% mid cap, 20% small cap, 20% Int’l, and 20% bonds. The Int’l diversification is pulling me down significantly. Would you shift that 20% back to large cap or just say it will payoff later to diversify? My IRA is pretty yeah heavy, so trying to be mindful.
