Very appropriate to ask. Doubt an agency that operates that way will give you the raise though

I’m pretty high for my level and city and have been told by recruiters that it might be tough to keep me where I’m at. I was willing in my mind to go $2k down as that’s not a huge difference in standard of living. They ended up coming in exactly $2k lower, after I negotiated it up. I’m currently freelancing so do need a job, it’d be four brands that I’d manage on a new type of business (cpg) and I’d have three account people under me. So excited about growth and leadership opportunities not being offered other places

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?
