Anyone have perspective on how MBB (specifically Bain) benefits are better than big 4? I heard Bain contributes 4.5% of salary to your 401k regardless of any employee contributions, which is great. Any other big perks that make their benefits package superior to others (eg. Big 4)?
has anyone figured out how to mimic a mega-backdoor Roth IRA without after-tax contributions in your 401k?
How much money is enough money? I know you’re probably raising an eyebrow at this question but I grew up in a financially unstable household and I never had talks with parents about money matters… grateful to have a salaried legal now job but am always wondering… when will it ever feel like there’s enough?
Anyone came to delottie from accenture? How do u enter accenture 401k into the track & trading? Thanks!
I currently max out my 401k, HSA, and Roth IRA. I also invest in stock and crypto. With the latter doing so well, does it make sense to reduce my 401k contributions by a few % to capitalize more on those investments? 26yo
Started a new job and trying to decide whether to rollover my 401k from my old firm at schwab to my new firm at fidelity or invest in a roth 401k. i've had a company 401k since I was 22 yo almost 15 years ago but the balance is embarrassingly low. Maybe i'll have better control in a roth? thoughts ?
Solo 401k or SEP IRA?
Hi fish fam. Outside of 401k/IRA/Roth/Trading/Real Estate, are there are any investment options that yield a ~7-10% annual return? Looking to make more than the 2% banks/fixed deposits give. Thanks!
I’m new to investing and putting money aside for retirement. I started putting money into my 401k for the past 2 years (though I may need to increase the amount since it’s half the IRS limit). I looked into a Roth IRA but I don’t qualify- where else can I put my money? I have emergency funds already covered. Thanks.
Can I roll over my Roth 401K to a Roth IRA and then withdraw my contributions with no penalty? I know it’s not recommended, but have extenuating circumstances
I have CFP but see need for more managed account in my practice. Would it be wise to get CIMA (Certified Investment Management Analyst) to obtain more knowledge and skills? Thank you.
Any 🐠 have a CFP? Was it worth the time investment? Trying to decide whether to pursue CPA or CFP for long-term market competitiveness. (Not looking to dedicate several years for CFA.)
Making 90K in Texas, it’s my first job out of college so I’m not sure of best retirement plan: should I max Roth 401k or Traditional 401K?
I am looking to drop my series 7 and join an RIA. I’ve finally accepted that the BD environment is a terrible fit for me. I would like to join an RIA team because I’m just over 5 years in and I would like to have some mentors to continue learning from, but if I can’t find the right fit then my plan is to launch my own. Where to start looking for an established RIA? I have not completed my CFP yet.
6 week cram sesh for CFP. Any recommendations?
Any advice on how to find a CFP? Or any suggestions in the DC area? Parents are thinking about retiring soon and need more advice/guidance than I feel comfortable giving
My company offered to pay my way through the CFP program, on the contingency that I will pass and also stay with them for 10 years after the fact. Is this normal? It seems unfair to make me pay them back down the road if I decide to take a better opportunity. It’s a small business that is worried I will leave.
Anyone have success charging an hourly fee for financial planning? Considering making a jump into it, have cfp designation, but am mostly commission at the moment. Won’t be a total switch.
I want to start on the chfc and cfp but the courses are 8k through American college. Is there a better alternative out there? I definitely think there's value in them but that's a bit steep for me
Dear men: stop asking your female peers to schedule meetings for you. It’s a bad look. Just sayin’.
Can you get back Virgin Atlantic miles spent on booking a reward delta international flight if you cancel the flight due to coronavirus?
I’ve been out of work for a significant amount of time due to Covid decimating my industry. Lots of interviews and a few final rounds. Today I finally got an offer. Pay is the best yet and team seems great. I just can’t help but feel a little disappointed bc it’s not the industry I was in/am passionate about/reason I went to law school. Is one bird in hand really better than two in the bush? Anyone have a similar situation? I’m worried about regret & giving up on my dreams.
I had a final round interview with Blackrock about 3 weeks ago and haven’t heard anything. I’ve reached out to the recruiter and hiring manager for updates but nothing. Is this normal? Just confused why they can’t tell me I’m cut or they’re still deciding…
Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?
Anyone familiar with PwC's Life Science Quality Management Systems Manager role and what they do? Curious about the culture, responsibilities and levels of compensation.
New-ish analyst currently on the bench. Any tips on how to network and find a good project that aligns to my skills? I go to events and reach out...what else can I do? What works for you?

What’s the correlation between compensation & happiness? I have never been a very happy person (depressed from time to time) and my comp is only 150k. What compensation do I need to reach so that I can become immediately happy? 200k, 300k, 500k?
Brought and conquered for breakfast my leftover 4 ounces of cold Ruth's Chris Filet Mignon to the client today. How else could I give a nice little "fuck you" for almost two years of slavery to them?
Consulting vets, normal? I was lured into consulting and lost benefits due to the challenging transformation program being right up my alley. I have a multi year contract with heavy director duties promising fast track to Sr leadership. Day 1 I find out Iead no one and the MD is in charge. A few months later I get involved in spending nights and weekends for 3 weeks making a 60+ page deck. Company wins part of the contract and hires 12 more. Since then I have been ignored by them. No bonus!
I changed companies 6 months ago. I hate it here. If i start looking for another job does it look bad for new companies i'm applying to? I currently manage a department
Interviewing for MD role @ EY Digital Transformation team, looking for any suggestions on base + bonus ranges to expect?
Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.
Is WLB better at S& than MBB/Tier2 or worse? I feel like it’s probably the latter because of Utilization/PwC culture, but want to validate.
