What are the benefits of using a general (not working for the target company) recruiter?
Considering role at KPMG just found out from the offer that I wouldn't get any 401k match until 2 years which wasn't mentioned in interviews just that benefits offer 6% and didn't specify how eligibility works? So if I start I'm not eligible to next year then following year is when the match is paid? That is a lot of time value of money lost. Are other firms more competitive, I'm following up with pending offers from Deloitte and PWC, do they do the same?
Post-job, pre-MBA checklist? In terms of things like benefits, health insurance, moving points over, etc ... anything I should be aware of or take care of before leaving?

What is your firm’s paternity leave policy?
I only have a 401k but wondering what I need to do, if anything, when it comes to tax season. I was late to the savings game so I have no idea if I need to report anything, pay taxes, etc when I do my yearly taxes.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was giving his employees amazing benefits but not enough time to use them
I invest in S&P 500 for my primary 401k account. I just created a Roth IRA and not sure what funds to invest in. I want to diversify. Any recommendations?
Hi 🙋🏼♀️ Accenture moms. Re healthcare benefits: did you select HDHP or PPO plan and why? I’ve been on the HDHP plan for the last few years, which has worked well as I almost never see a doctor, but we’re planning to get pregnant next year and I’m reevaluating my options. How many prenatal apts should I expect? Is PPO better for this? Anything you wish you had known about being pregnant with ACN health benefits?
How is your company’s health insurance. I recently left PwC and I thought the $300 a month for a family of 3 for the HD plan with $8,000 deductible was high. But at new firm I’m paying double that with a $10,000 deductible.
I work as a developer in an insurance company, and I've noticed that all my friends at tech companies seem to have much better benefits. Are the differences between non-tech and tech company benefits really that high?
Does EY 401k provides Brokeragelink feature from fidelity? If so how to start the process?

Hi all, I am new to the freelance world and also tbh saving for retirement world smh Now that there is no company 401k…what are freelancers doing to plan for their retirement?
I received a job offer today for an entry level position. I lack experience in this field and didn't tick off all the boxes in the job description. I completed 2 conversational interviews + 1 additional interview with a skills test. They were very impressed with my skills test and all the interviewers seemed to like me a lot. I think the offer they gave was fair with market price & it pays more than my current job + benefits. I've been told to always negotiate but should I in this case?
28 yoe - Is my 401k too heavy on total stock/s&p500 if I decide to change allocation to 50% VFIAX, 40% VTSAX and 10% International total mrkt? Currently my allocation is 50% S&P, 30% Total stock, 10% International and 10% Bonds. Realized bond is making almost no money so thinking of switching moving forward. Outside of 401K, I auto-invest $500 in S&P500 every week. Am I going too heavy on one index?😭
I just turned 33 and currently have 165k in my 401k. I have a couple questions for folks who are much smarter than me on this stuff.. 1. Is that a decent amount for my age? I know some have more or less but want to make sure I’m doing okay 2. This money is split between three companies (Fidelity, T Rowe Price, etc) as I never rolled together throughout the years when switching jobs. Did I hurt myself a lot by not doing that and should I combine asap?
I have a hard time getting along with my future mother in law. She likes to talk about money, judging people/me and I never heard her compliment others. I understand it maybe her culture and background make her that way. But every time after she visited us I am extremely unhappy. She is picky about food I make, always want things changed in my house etc. Herself is not wealthy like she acts so maybe that’s why she comes off that way? She visits us quite often and I don’t know what to do…

Ended up owing $700 tax.. nothing much to file just w-2 numbers and that were it - used turboCurrently putting 6% to meet company match, would putting more into 401k avoid owing tax at the year-end?

Going on a two week Italy and Greece trip (Florence and Rome in Italy, Athens Mykonos and Santorini in Greece). Most Marriott property redemptions are about 0.5c for when I want to go (mid May). Should I just use cash and pay for cheaper non Marriott hotels instead?

18 weeks pregnant (1st time) and have always been an active/fit person workingout 5x/wk cardio/treadmill and some weight lifting. I've toned down my workout routine since I found out I'm preg as I got 2 v diff advice from the NP I first saw then the OB/GYN herself. NP warned of exercising as this should not be my priority now (which I agree) he warned from any running/or weight lift (were talking 40-70 lbs). Ob was so flexible about it and said I can maintain my routine as long as not exhausted.
