I’m a lazy investor and don’t want to think about my money, so I invest my Roth IRA and 401K into a Vanguard target fund (2065). Should I be doing more with my money?
I’m looking for assistance on building your own portfolio in my traditional 401K. I’ve been reading that it’s important to choose funds with low expense ratios. Also, that it is recommended to have at least one US stock, international stock , and bond. I am 24yo so ideally, I’d want to allocate 90%-100% to stocks and 0%-10% to the bond. Any other things I should be looking at?
Just turned 50 and allocated about 10% in my 401k to a long term bond fund which is already down 3% this year . I am not a fan of bonds especially with the current rate environment. Any suggestions instead of bonds to protect principal . Money market ? Target date fund ?
Joining KPMG as an intern in healthcare advisory practice. Considering that I am in a MHA program (healthcare administration) any way to leverage to receive an offer as a senior associate?
Seeking portfolio advice. 23 years old- 95k comp, 20k currently in market through the most basic Schwab index funds and Vanguard ETF’s, already max out 401k & IRA. My returns over the past year have been meager. I want to take on more risk and pick more concentrated investments. Whatever I go with, I want to hold them for the long run with no intention to sell. Any advice?
Besides pay/benefits, what are changes that happen when you move from a C to M levels? Do you have access/exposure to different tools that help you do your job/take on bigger responsibilities?
Is wlb for consulting in UK (London) better than that in US? Trying to convince myself that the pay parity is worth it. Also, could you please help me understand whether the total long term col (inc healthcare, childcare etc) in London is less than that in a hcol US city (say NYC), and thus the saving potential is similar? TIA!

Any recs on finding a good tutor for GMAT? Should I look a different place for quant vs. verbal tutors, or are there tutors that can help with both? Also, is it realistic to think I can get someone for $150 an hour, or is that too low? Lastly, how many tutoring sessions do you think are necessary to reap the benefits? (Lots of Qs, sorry!) For context, am considering using a tutor specifically to help tighten up weak points between my 1st and 2nd sitting
My last day at my current job is Wednesday and I’m not starting my new job until 10/4. My health insurance ends on midnight Wednesday. What should I do for those 10 days in between? Seems ridiculous to pay for COBRA for only 10 days.
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.

Going back to work next week after 4 months of maternity leave and I’m super nervous about it 😔. I’m sure it’ll be fine but I wish that I could stay home a bit longer 😔
30 y.o. M here, just changed my 401k allocation from a target retirement fund to 85% S&P500 and 15% international index funds. Anyone think this is stupid? Thoughts appreciated!
They just announced that layoffs and reduced schedules will be communicated starting next week. I’m super stressed as I’m on maternity leave. Do you think I should contact partners or just wait until I return in a few months?
Folks that have been laid off in their careers, did you take a pay cut in your rebound role? How big and how'd you cope?
Is Deloitte the only top firm to have layoffs? I heard this from my manager today and find it hard to believe
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

I'm sorry if this is out of place, but is anyone interested in coming on my veteran podcast? I work for a Nonprofit Organization that provides supportive services to veterans in CA, NV and AZ and our podcast discusses issues relevant to veterans. I'm organically searching for veterans who are willing to talk about their experiences, mental health and healthcare, employment, case management, housing for the homeless, etc. We don't require you to be an expert on anything.
Thoughts on JD/MBA?’
I have been on my SO’s case about drinking. He is unemployed and has been laid off. He has been having drinks 3x a week. One or two glasses a session. I drink 2-3x a month. I say it is too much. He’s Irish and I’ve lived in Ireland. People binge drink the entire weekend until they fall over. Someone who comes home from work drinks one dram of whiskey every night. This is normal. Americans define this as alcoholism.Do you think this is a cultural difference or actual excessive drinking?
