Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
Has anyone here considered switching into the mental health field? Considering becoming a therapist because I feel it would be much more rewarding, but I’m hung up on the lower salary (which I know sounds awful). Thoughts?
What’s a realistic amount to save on 130K of gross earnings per year assuming no loans and your goal is to save? I would imagine it’s (assuming HCOL) 85K net - (1.5K a month plus 100ish for utilities) 20K a year, 10K on necessities like food(mix of eating out/in, car insurance, gas, phone), 5-10K on luxuries like vacations, nice-to-have clothes, subscriptions, miscellaneous. This would net to 45K-50K saved a year right? What are your thoughts? Any costs I’m grossly underestimating/missing?
Just curious to hear from Other fishes - how much of your salary do you invest in 401k? Myself and my husband so 12% each also because we are not us citizens yet. But thinking of maximizing it to 18%

I recently changed jobs and my new 401K provider - Principal has very limited MF investment options. My prior employer’s 401K was managed by Fidelity and provided me access to a range of MF options. I believe that the fund options are negotiated by the employer and provider? Two questions. First - I have not rolled over my previous 401K to the new one. Would there be any problems. Second - is there a way I could move my current 401K to another (precious) provider?

Hi Desi 🐠 I need US health plan recommendations for my parents (non-resident B1/B2). My dad recently had major surgery and wants further eval in the US if they visit (post current crisis).

Tip for young ones looking to go to BSchool. Put all your money in traditional 401k. Then when you go to bschool, and have zero wages for that year (maybe the internship), convert to Roth with very low income tax. Tax arbitrage right there! 💸💸💸

KPMG interview process on to 3 months. What gives? Do they actually need cyber people or not? Do I even want to work here now?
MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.
