Any financial advice for us younger professionals who have not weathered a recession? I’m nearly three years out of college and it freaks me out to see my (small) 401k losing thousands of dollars.
Won’t get employee match on 401k until next year I believe. Should I continue to contribute 15% or lower it and wait to contribute more when I get matched? Or does it matter? Hope to get some advice!

Has anyone gone on maternity or paternity leave while going up for promotion in the same year that is willing to share story or any impact?
Campus hire. New to investing/retirement savings. I know it’s important to “max out my 401(k)” so I selected my pre-tax 401k contribution to the % that my employer matches to on my account. Is that al
Should I stay on my parents’ health insurance or start my own to start saving in HSA? (Just started at Deloitte, new to this). Thanks

How does 401k works in Deloitte. Is it 25% match only? Isn't it too low? And when does the matching occur?
Anyone have experience with 401k rollovers? Leaving Accenture for Deloitte and it seems like I need to rollover my 401k into an IRA with a brokerage account? Do I do this after I leave the company?
Thoughts on selecting the Russell 1000 index fund for my 401k? Expense ratio of 0.01%. I was considering the target date fund, but I’m 25 and don’t really want any bonds atm.
I’m coming back to work from maternity leave soon. The daycares I’m on the waitlists for won’t have an opening for 2 more months after that. What do you think is the best set up for the 2 interim months without daycare? Hire a nanny to come to the house (convenient but SO expensive), or do a flex arrangement with reduced hours? I’m leaning towards the flex arrangement and either trying to work early in the day and then watching the baby while my husbands at work. Any thoughts or experiences?

Ugh. Democrats will see this as obvious proof that many conservatives are conspiracy theorists that have lost their minds, conservatives will see this as proof the deep state exists and that this dude fought it with inside information. Or proof that you can be fired for "conservative views..." https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/09/21/nih-william-crews-covid-19-fraud-retire-anthony-fauci/5860559002/
This may sound odd but I want to eventually work at all the big 4. To me it'll be like collecting infinity stones. Once you work at all 4, what crappy super power do you get? Currently 25% of the way there
People who actually post: “DM me for a rec to <your company >” Does this work? Do you find applicants and they get interviews/roles?

In the final round of interview with a San Fran startup that’s about to go IPO... but I know I’d be also giving up lots of the structures & project flexibility & diversity offered here at big 4. What rationale would you use to make a decision?
Recently started B4 accounting advisory - my projects keep getting delayed or cancelled and for the last few months I’ve only worked about two weeks. My next engagement just got cancelled and now I’m seriously worried about my utilization and about getting fired after just starting. My counselor was aware of my situation but didn’t mention too much about it and I’ve been reaching out + letting people know I’m available this whole time. Don’t know what else to do and how concerned I should be
Hi there, I have a Facebook Program Manager role on-site coming up. Has anyone been through this and care to share their experiences with me? Looking for some insight on the interview questions & prep
If you were fired / terminated by a prior employer, when searching for a new job, what would you say if the application / recruiter asks if you got fired or why you left the prior job? Will the reason pop up during background check? Would companies really give you a 2nd chance if you are being honest about the fact that you got fired? (Note: assuming pre-COVID)
I’ll be promoted next year to senior but I’m in a niche role where I don’t see myself long term. Should I make a job switch now or should I wait to get promoted to senior? I currently have 1.5 years of experience.

Up for promotion to manager, have an offer to leave Big 4 for a 35% pay bump. Would you try to negotiate if you know others who have jumped to the same company for 15% more?
Anyone knows what's the equivalent of the capital markets function of Accenture in the big 4? Would it be S&o for Deloitte? How about the rest?
No room service at Marriott properties in NYC. Then they expect you to go down to the lobby to get your delivery because of security, meanwhile anyone in plain clothes can go upstairs. Wtf Marriott?
