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
No judgements please :( need advice! I am nearing 30, and have over 100k. I have no idea how to invest! I am maxing my 401K, have a few high profile stocks, and some money in crypto - but on holding pattern on all! How do I invest the rest of my money wisely?
What are partners going to do with the massive amount of senior turnover? Considering changing anything? Upping pay, benefits, hours? Less understaffing? Anything?
Gearing up towards salary negotiations, I've got 2 YOE and 66.668$ TC as a consultant with no benefits. My role description has changed quite a bit since I started and I'm now the only colleague with a qualified QA degree in my team. I am considering putting forward a proposal of a 25-30% increase to match my role as QA lead, is this to bold?
What would you value more when deciding between jobs (both non-PA) - a company w/ prestige or with work life balance & good benefits. Let’s say same salary and potential for growth. I’m ambitious but also totally burnt out and over public accounting.
How much money is enough? We fish come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have taken a multitude of career paths around the world. I’m curious to hear how high of an annual pretax income (cont’d)
Have recently seen analyst/consultant roles at McKinsey that include the words "delivery" or "insights". Are these akin to US Delivery Centers? One title for example: Healthcare Capabilities & Insights Analyst
Hey any suggested way of how i should split my investment post 401k max out n IRA? Say i have 50k in saving then around 15k in HYSA, 20k in S&P500 and 15k in stocks? Something on these lines as in what is suggested
Having grown up in the lower middle class and not with much money family wise, I always thought one day when I made six figures I would have tons of money coming in, but lately I am discouraged with my “take home pay”. Combined my wife and I make about $275k, we max both our 401k accounts out and after all taxes, and other deductions we take home roughly $150k. Don’t get me wrong this is a great amount. I just always dreamed my take home would be more. Anyone else feel this way? We lose over 40%
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.
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!
As an entry level analyst is it better to enroll in the Pre-Tax or Roth 401k ? What are the benefits of each?
What brokerage does Deloitte use for 401k?
Does anyone have anecdata as to whether there is a waiting period (and if so, how long) before maternity leave benefits kick in for laterals in biglaw? I know in other industries, a year is common, but not sure if that is the case among large law firms.
Has anyone done the Caesar Diamond status match and taken advantage of those benefits? I’m curious as to the requirement to unlock things like the Atlantis trip etc.
Our office isn't mandating people to come in until next year. But I went in and ended up staying until 11pm. Can I request reimbursement for a ride back home? Not sure if I can because the firm hasn't told us we must come in...
Both SO and I are new in our careers, about a year+ in. We don’t make the amount of money that some of you all make (yet) but we’re doing above average compared to our peers just a year out of school. Looking for advice as we start our personal finance and investment journey: pay off consumer debt before maxing out 401k? And where does student debt and/or mortgage fit into the picture? FWIW, both of our parents probably won’t be able to retire anytime soon, so can’t get much advice from family.

Im someone with a "business" background (supply chain, procurement) that went to work for as a consultant for tech consulting firm after finishing my MBA, but now having trouble finding a project.

Are bitmoji classrooms just for google classroom or can you use them in a different platform, too?
Quick check-in. As you get ready for a new week in the classroom. On a scale of 1-10, how are you feeling?
What are some good headphones for Skype calls? Preferably bluetooth. My current headphones bring in too much background noise of the slightest things for the person on the other end.
Just realized I carried more than 20 vacation days over to VY2019. Days, not hours. Whoops.
That sinking feeling when you're barely holding pace to make your hours and bonus this quarter, then you're volun-told to take on a big nonbillable firm training project. 😭
