I am turning 30 soon. Had paid off my student loan and other debts (except my home mortgage). Making almost $100K a year and have saved around $45K (stocks + 401K). Want to know how am I doing?
What are the general thoughts on automatic rebalancing of 401k? Good idea to maximize returns or better to pick some funds and stick to them?

Which health insurance plan do you recommend for pregnancy and maternity care? Looking for switching during current open enrollment . From the Deloitte sponsored plans, narrowed down to these 3 - Anthem Bluecard PPO, Aetna Select, UHC PPO. I am currently enrolled for Anthem Bluecard PPO and looking for other best options, if any. Also, if I get pregnant in December and switch to any other from Jan, will that works or the new insurance provider might raise a concern to cover the expenses? TIA!
A buddy just told me the average American needs at least $4M in the bank to retire safely. Isnt this crazy high? I did a quick Google search and found $8M as another benchmark lol

401K question - if I max my contribution this year and then join another firm - can I still contribute and max that one out as well - within the same fiscal year? Or is it just allowed to max out overall total within a year irrespective of company
Hi Fishes, I have got an offer from Wipro, was hired for an immediate requirement for some project named ELC. Does anyone know about this account? I confirmed from the HR that it is a support and development role and has only day shift. Just doubting the shift, I can't work in night shifts How is the work life balance in Wipro? Does they provide any reimbursement for WFH peripherals like Accenture does?
Outside of the Big 4 - what are some other good consulting firms in the DC/MD/VA area that have Healthcare arms? Have had interviews at 3 of the Big 4 now trying to cast my net wider.
Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.

Does anyone know anything about Barbarian’s internal culture? What’s work life balance like? How are the people?
So...I recently started a new position (within the past year). While I like the practice area, I'm not a huge fan of the type of work I'm doing. I'm a new lawyer. I had planned to stay in this position for years, but I've learned there is very little chance that I will get to do any litigation. Most of the attorneys at my job were previously trial attorneys and they took this position for the slower pace and regular hours. I'm worried about moving on too quickly. Thoughts?
Recently got my CFP and wanted to push more in the planning direction. Kind of young for seminars so I thought maybe do more door knocking. What do you think about no soliciting signs though?
Does anyone have a work culture that prioritizes WLB? Sometimes I feel like it's all talk for branding.
I’m in digital planning/buying. Do people need to get a masters at some point to keep progressing in their careers? What type of careers (needed for client side?) is an MBA helpful for down the line?

I’ve now had 2 instances where a tech startup calls me the day after final round to tell me feedback is positive and ask logistics questions (relocation, start date, vague comp discussion). Then they reject me the next day saying “some discussions happened in the room that didn’t come up in written feedback” Wtf is going on.
How valuable is having a B4 name on the resume? Currently at a boutique and have the option to join B4 (not KPMG) or industry. Industry would pay more for the first couple years. Wondering if B4 would be the better option for the long run
When do interviews go on until? Do they typically happen beyond mid Nov? Only asking about M7 R1, in case that matters.

Hi ladies, Is the 6 month mark too early to ask for a raise? I have been required to over step my job role in almost every capacity. My bosses boss is contacting my personal phone on this weekend as the main point of contact for crisis comms on social media. I am also helping more senior social media members often. I have received 5 pieces of overwhelmingly positive written feedback from colleagues and these will be reviewed at the end of probation talk. I just don't know how to ask. 😔
