Slalom 🐠: Tell me about the Client Service Leader position. What does this equate to on in the traditional firms (ACN, B4). Also, any ideas on comp other than Glassdoor would be helpful. Thanks!

When figuring out how much money you need to save before retirement, do you follow the 4% rule? Fidelity recommends to play it extra safe and plan for 1.8% (instead of 4) as the annual percentage I can take out from my investments once I retire. Any thoughts on this? What percentage do you guys use?
I have an opportunity to take over the 401k at my credit union and was thinking about getting this as it seems like it could be done pretty quickly and may pay dividends in the future.
I’m leaving EY and got a note that I am eligible to be paid out my 401k balance. This is the first time I’m leaving a firm, so not sure if I should do this, or is there a way to transfer the account to the new employer? Which one is better?

Has anyone had experience adding their old employers 401k account to their new employers 401k? Is this a pretty standard thing?
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

I want to move (and plan to fairly soon) a few states away from the current office I am in now. I have only been with my firm for a year.

Advice to young lawyers. Read a book. I saw the thread about savings and many young lawyers (20s and 30s) don’t know how to open up a brokerage account or invest in their 401k. I know they don’t teach personal finance in school (though they should!), but my advice is that you should go to your local library and read a book about the subject. You have the skills necessary but you must invest in yourself. No one will look out for you.
Tuck vs Ross ($$) goal is MBB or big tech

We risk exposure and bringing it home to our families every time we walk into work, yet are limited to time off work without penalty. What's your sick leave policy?
I’ve got an offer for a job I think is going to be much more interesting than my current role and significant pay bump. Downside is it’s permanent WFH and I think part of why I’ve got the urge to leave DT is the lack of people connection right now. Worth it?
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
