Just joined a startup after 4 YOE in consulting. My title is “Associate”, and the new hires that we are planning to add this summer (new grads) will also be coming in at the “Associate” title.

Advice on holding/selling: I started investing last year, mostly in index funds but also in ETFs of sectors I believe most in (renewables, hydrogen, biotech).

Is it worth holding on despite 20-30 percent losses, or are even worse times ahead/will get eaten up by fees? Lesson learned to not overindex on growth…
At EY, does progression happen every non-promotion year or one can be at the same level for multiple years?
