Looking At my 7-8 year old tax documents , it hit me hard when I realized with a masters and 12 yr experience , PWC payed me yearly total comp $25k as part of global mobility ,bringing me to US as a specialized skillset resource . Reminds me of all the people on the same boat today going through same situation on one hand, and the other group of people displaced from their jobs due to the low wage

Deloitte Moms, I just found out I’m pregnant with my first! Super excited! I have a question about the firm maternity leave policy. Per my knowledge, our maternity leave is 4 months. However, I’ve seen coworkers who went on leave for up to 6 months. How do they manage to do that? Also, based on your experience, when’s the optimal time to tell employer/ coworkers about your pregnancy?

Been in consulting for a year now as an Associate with 1.5 years prior experience. Possibly could be promoted at my firm this year. Have an opportunity to work at getting a job with a FAANG. The job would pay 30k more base + whatever the comp comparison is. I am wondering what is a better career opportunity/what will pay more in the short term. And what are generally FAANG signing bonuses for non-engineering roles in engineering.

My situation & looking for yall’s opinions: We came into this country as immigrants last year and bought our first house with our savings (House was 410K , put down 100K down payment) in Dallas. But, we don’t have much in way of investments and only have 25K in savings + 15K in both of our checking accounts . We have a toddler and a new born baby. I was making $140K and contributing 7% to my 401K which puts me only at the 8K mark for this year. I’m 34 and felt so stupid after reading a lot of the smart decisions folks are making here. Given my unique situation and desire to play aggressive catchup and be more financially savvy especially for the sake of our kids; my wife (25 y/o) will start working next year (110K) and I got a second job (140K) to essentially double my income . Other than maxing out our 401K, What practical steps should we both start taking immediately to a) play catch up and starting building that wealth ; and b) to reduce our taxable income as much as possible since we’d be at ~ 400K household income next year?

Currently a CTL in Bain and looking for opportunities in Europe. Wanted to check whether these make sense - 1) Senior Manager Group Strategy at Philips 2) Senior Manager, International Markets at Delivery Hero The comp being offered seems to be lower than CTL comp at Bain in Amsterdam/Berlin so not quite sure on how to negotiate. Would be good to get tips on the role/firm and whether there's a way to match the comp.
