Does the contract job provide benefits (Health Insurance, 401k). If I were in your position, I would go with HCL because of job stability. However, I would negotiate to increase my pay.


Thanks for replying. Really appreciate.
No benefits with contract job and that's the main reason I'm likely to go for HCL.

When is a referral bonus paid out? After signing, after starting, 30 days after starting?


I am curious. What do you pay your registered CSA/CA/assistant? Do you pay a % of revenue or a flat amount monthly? Do you bonus too? What’s a good % of revenue for them to work towards getting, 1%, 2%? Do you even know what they get paid by the firm?
I have heard many mixed things, so I’m truly curious what has worked for others.

Hello all,

Anything else that I should be doing? This is not a brag post. I just want to make sure I’m maximizing everything I can. For context, I’m a 25 M, 110 base

- Maxing out Roth IRA (~20k balance atm)
- Maxing out 401k (~18k balance atm)
- Maxing out HSA
- 45k in HYSA as emergency fund (I can probably reallocate 20k to the market but waiting for the market to drop a little)
- 18k in the market
- Keep enough money in my primary checking account for rent, groceries, etc.


Help me choose between these offers:

€105k TC corp strat SM at a DAX company in Germany in a LCOL but nice city. €7.5k signing bonus + relocation. Culture is pretty good, pay should go up to €130k+ within a couple of years.

$200k base M at B4 in Chicago. The culture is the culture. $25k signing bonus.

Long-term, I'd rather live in Germany, but I have a personal network in Chicago from business school so either is fine in the short-term. Thanks for your input.
