What is an acceptable or rule of thumb % of your salary to spend on a watch? I really love and have followed luxury watches, but feels dumb to spend $5000 on a watch when I make $75k. Currently have a $300 Citizen that I quite like but want to upgrade.

Have an offer from Deloitte doing the exact same thing I do at KPMG for 45% more. Partners at KPMG have basically told me they can get close to matching but not until raises happen in October. Should I trust them or jump? Worried about having to build an internal network from scratch at Deloitte but also worried about getting screwed in October and getting like a 10% raise only. M2 if it matters. Thoughts?

I am currently a full-time product designer at a small agency in Toronto. A really good opportunity came up to work at a big corporate as a product designer as a contract 6+months they also offered to pay x2 my current salary. I don’t want to give up my full time job for a contract job (kind of risky for me) but I also don’t want to lose this opportunity. What should I do? Is it possible to take on both jobs for now?

Does anyone know what the salary range is for a Sr Advisor for someone with a Masters and over 10 years consulting experience and the subject matter expertise at Public Consulting Group?
Anyone know what recruiting/HR depts are like at HRT, Two Sigma, Jane Street, Point72, and other similar funds? Considering an offer & in final stages -- FAANG, start-ups and financial firms/hedge funds. I am fairly happy in my current role (at med-large FinTech company, prior experience from FAANG). But would move for a role that is challenging but provides time/opportunity for learning, innovation, more strategic practices, actual growth, etc. Comp is a factor**
