Anyone have any advice on whether it’s better to roll over a 401k to a Roth IRA or a new company’s 401k when leaving a company?
Anyone know of healthcare companies in the US that are doing cool shit and need product designers?
I think being in US dominated chats makes it difficult for us to gage consultant compensation outside of US. I know the TC amounts to a lot less compared to US due to job market & better state welfare, but if you are MBB~Big 4 consultant in London, is it possible to have an upper-middle class life (let’s say ~3 kids, spouse doing ~50k job, detached house in Home Counties, HMC private schools, nice holiday once every few years, Rover and a mini)?
PSA: reminder to schedule a day or two off in the upcoming weeks for a 4 day weekend (heck maybe even an entire week). It can do wonders for alleviating stress. Today I’ve gotten my oil changed, taken my dog to the vet, cleaned up my unibrow & have a facial scheduled. The rest of my day will be applying to jobs. I’ve only checked my email once and it feels so ridiculously good not to be tied to a laptop Monday morning. Take that time off ladies!
If the office is shut down till summer, I’m going to show back up to work visibly pregnant lol. Anyone else a little pregnant right now and laughing about showing back up to work with a belly? 😂
So I understand age discrimination in the general sense and I believe in it. However, I think something that isn’t talked about is age/gender discrimination against women in the reproductive age range. I feel like people could be looking at me and thinking: if we hire her, she might get pregnant soon. It’s so unfair and this is why we have a wage gap (or one of the reasons)! Thoughts? Any ways to get around this?
160k HH income and looking at homes around $530k-$550k in the South, with no down payment (VA loan). No other debt and 1 kid. Is this excessive?
I quit my job and enjoying my first week of vacation between jobs. Today I measured my blood pressure, first time under 130/80 in years. LOL
The father of my 4 month old daughter declined to sign the parental acknowledgement to establish his name on the birth certificate, doesn’t pay child support and straight up asked that we avoid the...
Need advice: So I met this guy (who also happens to live in New York) via grindr at Southern Decadence. Over a night of causally meeting for drinks and getting to know him, I feel like I'm already falling for the guy. It's never happened to me before. I'm extremely rational and measured in my dating life (explains why I'm single). Regardless, he wants to be friends and / or friends with benefits. Definitely not looking for a relationship right now (he's recently single after 12 years). I'm potentially seeing him over the weekend during the day. Two things - what would be a good activity / date plan? And how do I approach this? I don't want to alienate the guy because of what I feel already (which realize can change over time). Thanks!
Is it normal for you to feel the baby kick you in the butt? I have an anterior placenta and don’t feel the kicks as much in the front/belly. It’s more literally in the back!
Partners - Do you ever take vacations? I have been at my current firm for about 1.5 years, and in that entire time the partner in my group hasn't been out of the office a single time. Is that normal? I can't tell if it's standard for big law partners to not take time off, if the dynamics for my group may be different (only 1 partner in the entire group), or it the partner I work with is just a masochist.
Deloitte is one of a minority of companies that holds 401K match and disperses once per year. This hurts employees as proven by Vanguard.
Paying down mortgage faster vs saving money to invest - what’s the decision point? Married no kids. Both already maxing 401k, ESPP, back door Roth, and prepaying on mortgage.
Realizing to be comfortable (max 401k/IRA, 12mo expenses in savings acc, and save 2k a month) I’ll need to make 200k+ in NY :(how does anyone afford to live here
Ladies ... I’m expecting and I am trying to put a baby registry together ... which isn’t easy considering everything is still closed. Can you please help with must haves. Thank you so much.
I see the Richards Group making Black History month content and can’t help but roll my eyes. So over agencies making empty little videos showing diversity yet the faces behind the agency stay the same.
Any suggestions on MBA loan companies? Bank rates are low, should I consider federal loan or any other private institution? Thank you for your help 🙏🏽
Why is it that when a Kardashian sends a nude selfie to everyone it is front page news, but when I do it I get fired and charged with "harassment"? #doublestandard
Part of me wants to get at MBA, open a couple businesses, travel the world and put serious relationships off for at least another decade. The other part wants to marry within 2 years and have 5 kids
Could someone write down any popular job search platform other than Indeed and linkedinin Ireland?
Performance reviews are coming up. I’ve been in a rut for the past couple of months, but up until then, I was really doing well. I know it’s difficult without going into specifics, but wondering if anyone has any tips for navigating a review after a rough patch, or if I should not get my hopes up for a promotion.
Coming from a big 4 firm, approached by a start up 75+ employees, been around 4 years, headed up by industry heavyweights with solid business experience. What questions would you want to ask?
I’m currently in IT Audit at a B4. Thinking about switching to cyber because ITA feels like it could be done by a high schooler and there aren’t any exit ops. Is the grass much greener in cyber? What do you like/dislike about it?
Which firms are openly hiring for entry-level jobs? I’m 1 year in and considering pivoting from IB to consulting. I have friends (MBB/Big 4) who can refer but not sure who to ask if, depending on whether those firms are even taking people.
Anyone else hitting the COVID 19 wall in their new relationships? (Ie, not seeing each other is limiting progression) if so how do you navigate?
I salute and admire all🐟but have special respect for those who are on the journey without "the advantages". The advantages of a role model, sinecure, legacy pref. There are a lot of us. #Grateful.
How do you think the corona virus will affect rent prices and the overpopulation in NYC going forward? Do you think this will impact certain areas of the city more than others?
Cousin, wife and his kid left after a weekend stay. Feeling so damn blue and super stressed about work tomorrow.
