Apparently Amex plat will now charge for guests in the centurion lounge. Between that and increasing the fees, the value of the card has gone way down. They haven’t introduced any new tangible benefits, at least not ones that I use. https://thepointsguy.com/news/amex-centurion-lounge-new-guest-policy/amp/
Big Law Dads: How much time do you usually take off when your wife has a baby? And do you actually get to take off, or do you just end up working from home half the time? My wife is due Mid-December, and I’m staffed on 4 M&A deals trying to close by year end, so it’s not looking promising.
For 401k, Deloitte contributes 25 cents for every 1 dollar we contribute. Its matched upto 6% of our salary. How is it other big 4?
Has anyone ever worked in healthcare advertising or PR? Is it true that it’s hard to get out of pharma once you’re in it? Say you want to work on consumer brands later.
which pension fund manager is best for nps ?
Spouse makes significantly less income than I (both F/T), and they have only just started saving (~$40K in 401k at 42yo). My individual retirement outlook looks solid, but combined not so much. I'd like to use some of my cash/investment savings to pay off the house faster, do more renovations, etc, but I know I would feel bitter that I would be paying for all of it. Does anyone have a similar situation? Do you look at it differently or have a strategy?
In your retirement plans, are you including a steady Social Security income? My advisor says that given our frugal lifestyle, decent-ish 401K, and good SS, we will be quite well off. But ....
I go on maternity leave soon, and my firm offers 16 weeks paid leave, which I plan to fully take advantage of. The only female shareholder in our office keeps pushing me to only take 6 weeks though, because that's what she did. I feel really put off by her comments, but its also making me feel guilty about taking the full time. This is mostly a vent, but if anyone wants to give me some words of wisdom or thoughts, I will take them!
Change healthcare. Does anyone know what the onboarding process is like? I just got a verbal offer and I’m waiting for the final offer. I need to leave my current job.
I don’t know if anyone follows Grant Cardone here. He’s a bit over the top but one thing I really like that he says is to invest 40% pretax no matter what and then whatever is left over after taxes you live on. Forecasting this out 20-30 years it seems so attainable to have a ridiculous amount of money. Curious to see what people think of this rule of thumb. Is it just naive to think this is attainable over a lifetime?
I came across some posts online stating that the EY MENA health team is expanding. Is this true? I am looking to transition from healthcare consulting in US to Dubai. Can someone help out with a referral for the same?

Just got the bill from a hospital visit two weeks ago (we woke up to a miscarriage, our “nurse-on-call” said to call 911 immediately since the bleeding was so extreme and not clotting, and had to have an emergency D&E at the hospital) $21,000....!!! And the bill says “Payment due upon receipt” with no other information. Luckily we have insurance, they just filed it wrong but HOLY HELL! I’m honestly shocked.. I knew our healthcare system was bad but this is just unacceptable.
Hi all 👋🏼 I would like to read your suggestions: What are some questions you would ask or what are some things you would make sure to have in place before accepting a remote position? I am thinking asking about taxes, equipment, health insurance, what happens if I move, etc. Am I missing anything?
