One thing I miss about travel is the actual expensing.

I was on a NYC project getting nearly 90 bucks a day in per diem, I rarely spent more than 20, 4 days a week of that added up QUICK

Are you EY? Expense reports in other firms aren't too bad. Expensing at EY is a different level of hell

Folks, recently moved to an employer who doesn't offer 401k match and I am considering a traditional IRA to rollover my ~75k 401k funds. Any bank recommendations which offers the best fee/rate compared to the benefits ? Potentially some level of wealth mgmt for a smaller fee compared to the $25 + expense ratios with fidelity??

I have two offers - same comp: Big4 A - I used to work there so I have some network and connections. But it’s a specialized group in niche industry (good balance of provision and compliance) Big4 B - never worked there. It’s a provision only group specialized in tax accounting but no specific industries (probably will see everything) I value my network especially in the middle of the pandemic but I don’t really want to be confined in a niche industry. Provision > compliance. Any advise? TIA!

Did your salary freeze when you went on mat leave? (I.e. if you got a raise/promotion while on mat leave, it’s not effective until after you come back to work). I heard this has to do with short-term-disability insurance companies. They only pay your salary/rate at the time you start leave. But I feel like the employer should make up for the difference. I mean, why do you have to be paid less just because you are on mat leave. Thoughts?
