I wish PwC had some initiative/classes to guide employees on financial planning etc

Good thing you guys are not financial advisors. Maybe he wants to understand how a ‘Backdoor Roth’ works...maybe he wants to know why PwC offers the ability to add post-tax dollars to his 401k and what that means to a Roth? (Something only 10% of companies offer according to Vanguard.)

OP, talk to an advisor who is paid based on performance of your investments with them, not paid by the funds themselves.
If you want some amateur tips, let me know.

Open a Wealthfront account. Never worry about it again. Don’t pay a human for Beta strategies - doesn’t sound like you are investing at a level where your advisor will have any clue how to generate alpha anyway.

Let's try and be compassionate to our fellow H1Bs! Times are difficult but we have the immigrant endurance and persistence. Whichever path our lives take, we will survive and thrive! Special shout out to folks who take time to update such as EO reform implications! Chin up! Let's not let our disappointment with the system impact our mental health

Ever had to "collaborate" with someone who just takes over and drives the entire thing without giving you time to talk?

Just do it all yourself.
