I’ve been told by my firm that I need to get a corporate amex card. I’m new to consulting- can I still use my own credit card to get the points and expense that way? If it’s the corporate card can I still get points for it also or does it only go to EYP? Curious to know if a corporate amex is even a good thing or the benefits for it. Thanks!
2 years into this job and already flagged as "pre-hypertensive" in annual health screening (all other metrics the same as 2 years ago). Guys don't forget to breathe!
What does everyone do when they max out their 401k AND IRA? Taxable investment account? Something else?
My wife makes 112k and I make 70k in NYC. She plans to go to law school in 18 months. She is very smart and so I believe she will get a scholarship. But assuming worst case scenario, we will take on debt to pay tuition (180k). My question is should we still fund our Roth 401k this year as we have in the past or stop funding it to save for Law school to decrease student loans? I believe post law school she will make 200k (big law) and I should be at around 100k.
How do you ladies invest (outside of 401k/employee stock purchase plan - already maxing those out!)/how have your investments done? Just finished my first year of work and have a stupid amount just sitting in my savings account that I know I need to invest ASAP! Not sure where to start! Thank you!
Lifetime prod co producer here, considering a jump directly to a BRAND - never been with an agency as either freelance or in-house, so it’s foreign terrain. Any pros / cons worth sharing? And most importantly - salary and benefits that are typical when going in-house? NYC here... Thank you!!
Asking for personal finance help. I’m contributing about $7.5k/year to my 401k based on my budget/spending. About to get lump sum of cash (sold car, tax returns, stimulus). Was thinking of just putting a little aside in cash for rainy day and invest the rest in brokerage acct., but would it make more sense to max out my 401k for tax purposes and use the lump sum as spending $ until it runs out? Currently 27 yr old, 73k salary in NYC, no debt, $10k in EM fund, maxed out Roth IRA for 2021. TIA
Best consulting firms in Houston for Healthcare?
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
I am 24 years old and the advice I have been given is to max out my IRA and 401k before investing into a taxable brokerage account. If I do not plan on working until I am 59 1/2, is this sound advice since there is a 10% penalty of early withdrawals for both accounts?
If your company doesn't match any amount for 401k for the first year, should you just put your money else where for that first and max those out first (HSA/Roth IRA) before opting to contribute to the 401k?
When you’re comparing offers how you put a value against benefits like vacation allowance? Just calculate the value of a paid day as a % of base?
Anyone successfully parlay a partner offer into something like opting for part time with benefits? Boutique firm w great partners but don’t want the equity lifestyle. How to prep next few years?
BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it? My spec book gets me interviews for junior and mid copywriter positions, but when they ask me what kind of work I’m doing at my current agency, the whole conversation goes south. They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.
Been at Facebook for a month in a BizOps role. However, I just got a (very delayed) offer to be a Marvel product manager at Disney Streaming. Love facebook but my end goal is product management and it looks near impossible to switch internally since I’m in one of their HQ offices and most of the roles are sales. Should I switch? Comp is 30k less at DSS and not as good benefits, I’d burn a bridge, and I’m happy at FB but scared of losing a good opp
I’d be curious for peoples thoughts on permanent life insurance. We’re early 30s, 2 kids. We can very likely comfortably afford the big up front investment for the next 15 years or so. It feels like putting the money to work in equities is a better play but don’t want to write this off if it’s worth it. Right now I’d say our net worth is around 1.5 with 55% equities. 30% home equity, 10% preferreds, 5% cash.
So is pre-promotion a busy time to jump firms? In case people don’t get promoted, leave immediately?
Is this new “don’t hire portfolios” philosophy getting out of hand and agencies are ending up hiring shitty creatives?
Hope everyone is staying warm! I would recommend using the “hotel tonight” app if your looking for a room with electricity, heat, and wifi.

Started with big 4, now at BDO.. work in IT audit (have had very successful fast tracked career in IT audit) and at Manager rank. Interested in moving over more-so to cyber security type consulting and escaping the IT audit prison (aren’t we all lol). Any advice on education / certificate requirements on how to transition more-so into cyber type space?
How do you stay confident in interviews after several rejections. Starting to doubt myself after several rejections/level-down offers. (Not a good interviewee/communicator to begin with) 😔
For those that said MC —> IB couldn’t be done. (The IB internship experience does help though)

My flight from DCA-> TPA literally just had to abort takeoff to let a 12 year old boy deplane. Ready for a damn drink!
When you work from home and set the alarm for 9AM and consider that "sleeping in"... I feel old.
Is it reasonable to expect a sign on bonus if I’m making a lateral switch to a Big 4 firm? And if it is not offered, would it be weird to ask for it during negotiations?
Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?
Any financial advice for us younger professionals who have not weathered a recession? I’m nearly three years out of college and it freaks me out to see my (small) 401k losing thousands of dollars.
Long shot - I come from a technical background in data and analytics. I have to work on my resume to make it more MBA like for applications. Any suggestions on how to proceed? any templates I can refer to? I can hire a admission consultant but doubt whether they will be able to articulate what I am looking for.
Anyone successfully transferred their points and status from Marriott to Hilton or Hyatt?
My little girl now has an option of returning to school in-person through her spring break. My spouse is a high risk + extra careful when it comes to all things pandemic. I'm worried about my little kid's lost year & want her to go to school & interact with her friends, learn, etc. She's been home since March. Schools are being extra careful, maintaining all precautions, etc. But I can't convince my spouse to agree to this. Anyone else in a similar situation?
What's your acceptable raise % with rating 1/2/3? (Please don't troll on this thread...) looking for realistic expectation.
