I'm single M. Mid 30s and have been working since early 20s. 300k in investments ( including emergency fund) and another 200k in 401k retirement .
What is it like to work in the KPMG Consulting- Healthcare team at KGS Bangalore? Also, What is the office location as I heard there are 2 locations in Bangalore itself? Thank you in Advance.
If given the opportunity, would you leave your current job to run/work at a start up? I think most people would say yes, but would you actually give up the job security/pay/benefits and take a risk?
Help! I'm afraid I might be doing something wrong. I am paying for my Traditional IRA with my salary (so after tax). When I withdraw it, it will also be taxed. Where is the benefit?
HHI is $265 and I believe we will be in a lower tax bracket when we retire (hence not using roth)
I currently work in Atlanta for a healthcare management company that is local to the area. I just got into the healthcare industry and have my bachelors degree in health science. I work in a position in the revenue cycle and I am looking to possibly get a new job in a more established company. I want more stability and opportunity within a company. Does anyone know of any places in/around Atlanta or remote that may fit this criteria? Sorry for the vagueness. Thanks!
McK 🐠: anyone tried claiming their younger sibling (freshman in college) as a dependent for the health insurance? I’m paying for the tuition but not sure if a sibling qualifies as a dependent
I think this recent fiasco of shafting employees and their benefits should make young workers and millennials really plan out for the future. Save and Invest as much as you can so you can get financial independence. Embrace minimalism so you can have the power to say F You to any employer.
If I decline health insurance at IBM, do I get a cash payment? I have an offer from another firm that gives me $5k... does IBM give anything?
(Wife has free health insurance via her city job)

Why do I feel so guilty going on maternity leave? I feel like a bad employee but then again I feel like a bad mom. I felt so ashamed to let them know that I was expecting that I postponed telling them until I was 6 going on 7 months
One of the reasons I’m still long volatility. Short vol positions just hit another record high with max divergence which has turned into a vol spike at all of these points.
Last week I got an email from a job that I interviewed for months ago asking me if I was still looking, the current person they hired got called back to active duty and resigned. This job is a manager position with a large university and has amazing benefits, only draw back I have to go back into the office. After our 3 hour interview with the department chair, dean, and other managers they seemed very interested in me. They have completely ghosted me and I am stressing me out.
Best office chair for pregnancy? My ikea chair is not cutting it. I have a standing desk at home so bonus points if it works well with that. I have short legs, so it needs to be able to go lower to the floor than other chairs. Maybe one that has a great range so I could use it to lean on while standing and also sit ergonomically.

How gender diverse is your recruitment pipeline? Have been observing a year-on-year decline in female candidates as a % of total candidates. Recent few years have been in the low to mid 30s. Interested to see how other firms are going.
I am at a new level. I have a headache I can’t get rid of. I’ve take a 2 hour nap and I feel like I need much more. And it’s only the beginning of October?!
Can you help me? I’m working on my mission statement and would love some feedback! Due to length constrains I’m putting it in the comments.
Could someone explain the "you can always go back" response to leaving a current company for a competitor? What would that conversation look like? Would you simply reach out to your manager and actively manage the network you established in case this were to happen? TIA!

I’m at adam&eve DDB. Emails begin at 5:30am and go on until 22:00. We never, ever gets lunchtimes. We don’t finish on time. People are going sick with stress. Curious to know if we are the only agency where leadership haven’t put any rules or protections in place for mental health. What about your agency? (Didn’t WK stop emails after a certain time and make sure everybody got lunch break where there were no meetings allowed - something like that?)

Does anyone have a professional side hustle? Closer to white collar stuff than driving Uber or making hand bags, as examples. I need a side hustle that I can do from home.

So, I’m struggling. Used to be a pathological saver and had tons on money anxiety. Now, I have totally fallen victim to lifestyle creep and need to cut back on frivolous expenses (eating out and clothing). I’m SO ashamed that my monthly spend is so high (approx $7k/month). I make big law money and can afford it but I am stunned at how easily I spend money now. I’d like to divert more of that cash to retirement, but I need to rein in that spending before I do. Good god.
Any good resources for understanding 529 options in Texas? What have fellow Texans on here used for 529? Thanks!
Manager with a big 4 and finally have enough liquid cash to make some meaningful market investments. I am admittedly a newbie to trading and honestly don’t have a lot of interest in self-managing but would like a brokerage and/or CFP guided account (that understands/can accommodate independence requirements).
Any recommendations on brokerage or service to get started? Looking at Vanguard Personal Advisor service at the moment… Thanks for any advise
Newbie investor asked me a question, they have $5k to invest and were wondering if they should put it in an index fund (S&P500 - which is what I’d normally recommend plus DCA thereafter) or if they should buy AMZN given that it is well off of its highs, is a solid company and would, in 12-18 months, likely grow faster than the S&P, as interest rates normalize over that time period, etc. That got me thinking… so I’m asking all of you, what would you do/recommend?
Looking at refinancing my home and I’m trying to figure out how to best include additional equity in the equation since I’d go to a shorter term, but effectively keep the same payment ($50 more per month). If I roll all of the closing costs into the loan, I show myself coming out ahead immediately due to gaining nearly $500 in additional equity.
Am I missing something in how I should treat that equity? It seems too good to be true to be ahead Day 1.

Health is #1. Do it.
You can do Workaways here and there to save money if funds get tight (workaway.info). Exchanging part-time work for free housing and often meals for a few weeks or months. Anyone can host, so the “jobs” are things like helping with grape harvest in Bordeaux, au pairing in Paris, volunteering at an elephant sanctuary in northern Thailand. Great way to have a truly local experience and meet people while getting free basics and only working 4 hours/day.
A2 - Was it an loa? If so, how easy/difficult to get the approval?
Remote part time work with your own team.
Full time on my team is 12 hours. Part time would be 6 hrs/day and I don't think that will reduce the stress either.
Try to figure out what you’ll do for health insurance.
I’m surprised you can find health insurance that cheap
While you are chilling with no income take advantage of your low tax bracket and convert your pretax 401k into Roth
Haven’t done it myself at this stage of my life, but is work and travel an option? This way you could leave your funds almost untouched and it’s probably not too stressful compared to a corporate job. Alternatively, remote gigs related to your area of expertise are probably more lucrative, but at the same time more stressful.
Traveled solo for 5 months pre-covid and biggest expenses were flights/trains and then food in HCOL cities. Are you planning to stay in hostels? Depending on where you go, you could see nightly bed cost $7-$60. Some people work part time at hostels to pay for their stays. Others took part time jobs in cities doing construction/waiting tables. Met one or two that were doing part time 20hrs/week at a corporate job for half pay. I spent $10k across 6 months but could have done it cheaper if I didn’t move around so much. Feel free to DM with any questions :)
Why not freelance some work? Find remote work that you can do anywhere. Lots of interesting temp work abroad.
Can you rent out your current place or airbnb it out? With the help of a property manager, this could bring in extra money while you’re abroad.
Start with ACN’s future leave. They support health insurance.
Future leave is only for that calendar year PTO? Or have I need to check something different? Any pointers?
Negotiate a sabbatical and start with a month. Everyone is feeling massive burnout as a result of COVID. 2 years is a lot of time and I assume it will get very uncomfortable not having income for such a long period.
I think you should do it! But budgeting 2k/month seems a little low depending on lifestyle you're looking for as you travel. I spent about $4k/month for 3-4 months after I quit my last job in 2015. I spent an avg of $100-150/day for entrance fees to museums/churches/etc., hotel, transportation, food, entertainment as I toured around Asia and Italy. I guess it depends on how much you'll be moving around (train/plane tickets) as well as if you're OK sleeping in hostel bunks vs private room.
