Exited to industry in May and already looking to leave. However the other person I'm working with is going for maternity leave soon. We are working together as PMO for a huge transformation project and I technically can't leave until she is back because there is no one else to step in.... I feel like it's not ethical to leave them now but i can't take it anymore. They rushed me to join them and I didn't know that was because she was leaving soon.. :( What are your thoughts ?
Did any US citizens move successfully to Europe? I have a medical thing, as a freelancer I can’t afford healthcare here, and I’m afraid I will become broke and homeless living in NYC. I want a better quality of life, and to just live while I still have time...
As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp. America, there’s so much that I wasn’t prepared for like 401k, investing, along with other things that increase your TC that aren’t bonuses or your base salary or how to diversify your income. I’m 25 and I feel like there is SO much I still don’t know. Any good book recommendations/youtubers/podcasts that helps navigate this?
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA
Incredibly random question. Does anyone know the specific insurance plan BCG employees get? I believe it’s Aetna. I am looking at getting a surgery in the next few months when I start this fall but trying to plan for if/how much would be covered. Boston Consulting Group
For Mega Backdoor Roth contributions why do most articles/people focus on conversion to Roth IRA vs. Roth 401k? Been doing the former for years but starting to think latter might be easier/cheaper.
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
Switched jobs in the middle of the year. Will my 401k contributions automatically cap off or do I need to manually stop payments around the time I hit the fed max limit?
Any one know or work for Friedman LLP? Curious about their green card policy. Any requirement? Easier than big 4?
Just got a big raise (50%+) starting July 1st that is going to move me out of income limits for direct Roth IRA contributions (prior to raise was under the limit) even with maxed pretax 401k and HSA - however I am already halfway through contributions ($3000). What options do I have to address these excess contributions?
23 years old, $0 in debt, $71k cash in the bank, $12.4K invested in the stock market and working Big 4 making 76.2k a year. Currently invested in VOO, VOOG, BRK.B, and MSFT (ROTH IRA & Individual Brokerage A/Cs). Should I be investing more heavily with all the cash I’ve saved up; I’m a little worried about the market volatility, but also I’m 23 so want to cash in on compounding interest.

We're thinking of rolling out a weight loss competition company wide as part of our Health and Wellness month. Has anyone done something like this at their company and if so, is there an app that you recommend using? We want to keep people's actual weight loss amount confidential - we would love something that would record their percentage lost instead! Thanks in advance for any tips!
When you get a rental car, what do you do to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of for some bogus issue/scratch that’s already on the car? Take pic/video before, tell the checkout person of any issues (although this can be hard especially if at a smaller airport & you get the keys in the airport and there’s no gate when you leave), buy the rental insurance? If you have a card that covers rental cars (CSR, Amex Hilton) do you decline rental insurance and use the card benefits?
Hi all looking for exit opportunities to the big 4. Been unlucky with ICAS exams and have 1.5 years exp. glum thinking I will have to leave once tier 2 visa expires :( any support is very appreciated!
At a B4 stressed but managing it. Partner passed me over for a sr manager but treats me like one (constantly managing multiple projects, driving his practice initiatives and driving 1-2 /$300-500k of proposals every month. Boutique is offering me the TC that I won’t make here for 3-4 years - same level, more focused scope. Also talking to a tech firm that will be a slight bump (10-15%) but likely 25% less work/stress. Worried a little bit about career progression. Thoughts?
The idea of a CPA/CFP combo to me makes a lot of sense and seems like if someone were to market it well they could do well. Are there any that do okay?

Has anyone ever tried negotiating for more vacation rather than a higher salary? I'm applying and interviewing for jobs right now. Some firms have unlimited PTO while others only give a few weeks. Personally, I'm much more interested in getting an additional week of vacation and would rather negotiate for that but usually only hear of people negotiating for salary. Has anyone had experience with this?

I am in the process of negotiating an offer for a new job. At my current job, bonuses will be paid out on august 20th. The bonus is sizable so I would like to stay long enough to obtain it. Ideally, I would wait until the bonus hits my account before I put in my 2 weeks. If the new job wants me to start sooner than august 20th, is it acceptable to say that I want to stay because of the bonus, or should I give a different reason? Is it a bad look if I say I want to stay for the bonus?
