How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
I’m separating from my wife before we can start the divorce next year. This year I’m going to file taxes married filing separately and expect to pay a lot to IRS (salary increased and got allowances for office relocation besides the type of filing). Is anything I can start to do to minimize the tax impact later? E.g maxing out 401k and HSA will help?
Contacted by a recruiter from PwC, I have 4 yrs of experience in management consulting with a health background. Been doing mostly healthcare operations & strategy work—what area would I align @ PwC?
Should I move my 401K contributions into less stock heavy investments? I'm at a biglaw firm with no employer matching.
Why healthcare agencies only serve big pharmaceutical clients with inyectable or pill products and don’t work with “consumer healthcare” brands like Advil, Tylenol, Aquafresh, Pepito-Bismo, etc?
Why is expense reimbursement so tough? Why hasn't anyone thought of improving the process yet? 🤐
Will tenured FA’s retire due to this ?
Am I crazy for thinking being a mom is harder than working in biglaw? I’m a mid level associate and FTM currently on maternity leave and the amount of sleeplessness over the past few weeks have convinced me my job is a piece of cake in comparison. I’m so overwhelmed.
Anyone know if IPG as a network still grandfathers in time spent on staff at other IPG-owned agencies towards certain benefits, such as vesting in the 401(k) plan or vacation time?
Has the blush come off the rose for this shining city on a hill? Have any other foreign fish in the US been asking yourself why we made the conscious decision to seek out a life in this country? The racial tensions and frequent shootings (including a much covered grocery store that I used to frequent) are outweighing the benefits of staying here. Never have I had to worry this much about going to the grocery store. The reaction of society here towards these issues is also dismal. Is it worth it?
I understand that traditional vs. Roth 401k depends on tax bracket now vs. expected tax bracket in retirement. And of course there is the risk of changing tax laws. But what if you just don't know? Do you just split 50/50? Or once you're making over a certain amount, does it naturally make more sense to lean towards traditional? Not sure what other people do and what income level they make the shift to traditional, if at all.
Data strategy question: My Fintech organization has 2 banking products, both of which have similar features, but one caters to smaller banks and credit unions while the other focuses on the top 100 banks in the US. The product and engineering teams for both these products operate independently and rarely use any common technology vendors (except AWS, our common infra partner). Does it make sense to have a common data strategy and a single data lake across this products? What are the benefits?
Setting up our first small business 401k! Should we be an ERISA 3(38) advisor? What are the pros and cons?
Just realized my firm offers a Roth 401k option. I’ve been contributing pre-tax but now not sure what to do. I know Roth is theoretically better, but is there any reason to do pre-tax? What about a combination of the two?
Is anyone here a foreigner working in the US, and contributing to your 401(k)? Is it worth it if you don’t plan to retire here? Insights appreciated.
If I won't be needing health insurance from a full time gig could I ask that be added to my paycheck?
Looking to flip to a firm with less travel. I live in Colorado and work with planning software. Anyone know of any good firms to apply to?
I have a controversial observation: Facebook seems to be using recruitment process managers to get diversity hires. I've looked at all the RPM hires over the past few years and every one of them seems to be a woman, most commonly a woman of color. I'm all for diversity, but this feels out of balance. Am I wrong?

Interviewing for a senior project manager role in Salesforce CSG. Can anyone tell me about the role, culture, WLB, etc at Salesforce? Is WLB and culture really as good as they claim?
End goal in PE career? Let’s say you make it to MD at UMM shop. How is comp compared to let’s say F500 C-suite? I’d imagine both to be 10 - 30M, but a cushier rise in F500. Am I wrong? Just trying to figure out this giant rush by so many colleagues to the buy-side
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
When it comes to LinkedIn connections with clients, do you usually send them a request after a project or wait and see if they connect with you?
When interviewing have you noticed certain races are harder/easier on us? Me and my friend have noticed a trend and would like to see if this holds across different people.
It’s pretty wild how much Big 4 demonizes people who leave. Even worse if you’re looking to jump to a competitor. It’s never that serious
Anyone else at a shop that makes PTO for creatives a total rat race? Only 9 creatives per day.
Just picked up Whiskey Bible's #1 rated whiskey for 2021 (and 2020 World Whisky of the year) - can't wait for the weekend to crack this baby open. Alberta Premium Rye Cask Strength.
First time back through LGA post facelift. Terminal B (AA) are there restaurants/bars open? Or is a Hudson News my only shot at food
We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
My husband and I (both 27) max out our Roth IRAs each year, have a complete emergency fund, and I’m able to start maxing my 401K this year (he contributes 10% to his 401K - it isn’t possible for him to max his based on his current pay). We contribute 18% extra towards principal on our mortgage each month. We now have about $20k of additional savings we want to figure out what to do with. What would you recommend to someone who is new to stocks/investments?
