Sitting with a college friend who is in KPMG and just bragged that she is enrolled in a pension plan sponsored by KPMG and it is separate than 401K . I doubt this . Can anyone from KPMG confirm?
Does your sign on bonus require you to work for the company for at least several years? Any way to negotiate out of it?
Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!
Good news for everyone no matter where you are politically: New research indicates COVID immunity could last more than a year, especially after vaccination.
Your yearly reminder that if you’d bought the DJIA in 1929 you didn’t become profitable in real terms until 1955. It wasn’t just WW2. If you’d bought the DJIA at the beginning of 1966 you lost almost 75% to inflation over two decades and didn’t recover in real terms until 1995. You’d have made nothing between JFK’s death and Clinton’s second term. We are in a particularly weird period of “stonks only go up” but remember those 8% returns over the long run mask generation-defining risks.
Interviewing with startups. What's the average amount of time from initial conversation to offer? Any other startup interview advice is appreciated as well.
How does the holiday weekend impact your quota? Still the same? It's still the same for me, which I feel is unfair.

Best office chair? And other WFH splurges. Looks like we’ll be stuck working from home for a while. What are some worthwhile splurges to make WFH more enjoyable?
This one is for the moms: my husband and I are trying to conceive and I’m wondering what life will look like once we have a baby. I have a job where I work completely from home/remote, and I’m wondering if I will need childcare services of some kind. Is it possible for me to handle taking care of a baby while working a full-time job from home? Is it crazy to think I can do this myself?￼ I’d like to think, if it’s necessary, I could adjust my work hours and do a little when my husband gets home.￼
I know the usual advice for saving is emergency fund - 401k up to match - max IRA - max 401k - HSA?/personal brokerage. However, where does saving for a house deposit and car deposit (want used but only ~2-3 yrs old) fit in? I’m 26, 100k salary and have been trying to put away 3k per month into HYSA/emergency fund, was maxing 401k at ~$800 per pay period (lowered to $400 a month a few months ago since no firm match and would like to put $ into HYSA/house/car fund), and $500/month to max IRA.
Layoffs are coming
I am a intern turned casual/part-time while at uni. I have been in the team for more than a year and I’ve built a really strong relationship with my director. However, recently people haven’t been (1)

Took some CS courses in undergrad, but have been functional in cloud strategy for the past year. Applying to entry level SA position, and worried I don’t have the chops to compete with fresh CS grads. What advice do you have?
What do unemployment benefits look like now? 450/week plus an additional 600/wk if it’s covid related? Is it taxed as income?
Hello EY 🐠! Anyone kind enough to share what kind of questions you were asked by the interviewer when at interview? Specially for core tax, manager position. Wonder if it’s gonna be behavior question, technical, or mostly casual talk, etc? TIA.
I have been 😂😂😂 all morning all by myself. So, I started taking out my sew in cause this summer heat is killing me. I was about to take down the closure when I suddenly remembered that I had to be on a video call for work. So, I just brushed the closure and positioned myself in front of the camera as if I still have the full hair do. Front view is 💯. Back view is 🙈😂😂😂. When have you all had to improvise while WFH?
