Prestige or 30% better take home salary?
Has anyone used their solo 401k to purchase income property real estate? Just discovered this feature today and want to hear about experiences. And no, I don’t mean borrowing up to 50k for a primary residence purchase. Been there done that. Thanks!
This will either make me feel sad or okay.... at 25, how much did you have saved? Not including 401k.
Slalom Seattle - How’s growth going? Any increase in benefits - 401k match or standard PTO? Heard it’s on low side.
Anyone recently gone on maternity leave in California? Mine starts next week & it seems like the only option to receive the State paid disability portion is on a debit card instead of direct deposit?
Fishies, I need your help. I received an offer for $160k from guidehouse. I’m currently paid $133k at EY. I don’t particularly love my practice as it is testing and the new practice with guidehouse would be IT strategy. EY has gotten me comfortable with the reimbursement for fitness, phone and internet and the promises from Kelly Grier of “really good bonuses and raises” this year. What would you do?
Anybody have any insight (good bad or indifferent) about Davis Wright Tremaine in NYC? Any word on their remote policies, comp, hours, etc?
Does your sign on bonus require you to work for the company for at least several years? Any way to negotiate out of it?
Do you spend your entire per diem? Or do you prefer low-cost food options (chipotle for example) and save the rest of the per diem?
Thinking about going in-house to lead performance media. I know titling is different, but what kind of title and salary should I be looking for with 15 yrs of experience?
I have some spare cash lying around, how can I put it into retirement accounts? I know that I can’t write a check to 401k, and I’ve already maxed out IRA contribution for the year. Is taxable brokerage the only way to go? Really appreciate the advice here
Does anyone know if anywhere in Michigan needs nonmedical volunteers for vaccine sites? I’d like to help the effort and if I get jabbed at the end that’d be a nice bonus too.
25 with about $50k in 401k roth and $50k in pension. Changed jobs and nobody has given me any direction on best way to roll things over. 401k roth to my roth IRA? 401k to new 401k? Pension as lump sum or just leave it or roll into what?? Thanks for any help!!
I hope every day that the assholes that fired me for bullshit reasons (other than my salary was too high and they were awful managers and worse people) would perish in flames.
Do employers automatically put part of your bonus payout towards 401k based on your preset contribution %? Will they not do that if you’re already contributing close to the annual IRS limit?
Am I being underpaid? Chicago. Started in 2017. Work at a mid-size insurance defense firm as the only associate in my practice group. I pretty much handle my own files except if I need to run something by a partner. Minimum billable 1950 (with expectation you exceed that). Partners consistently give me good reviews, feedback, tell me I'm the best associate, will make partner, etc. Make 110k with around ~10k yearly bonus.
Should I be investing my 401k contributions right now? I’m afraid that the market’s going to crash. Would it be a better option to just hold the funds uninvested in the pre tax account?
Opinions wanted-Does randomly calling on students using a random generator create an emotionally safe classroom? I had a very quiet class last year where no one wanted to answer (Precalc) and I called on the students randomly and that caused anxiety among some students. I want it to be safe to answer, but of course I don’t know the students previous classroom experiences with other teachers. What are your best practices?
Anyone ever consider moving to another city for their partner? I’m having such a hard time finding a new job during covid, I’m rethinking it all! Not really but that’s how frustrating it is.
About to get an offer from Grant Thornton. So excited! Can anyone share the benefit? Work phone? PTO? Maternity Leave?
Help! I may have screwed myself over. I got an offer for $80,000 from a company for a role that was very hard/impossible to find salary data for online (I currently make $78,000) and I negotiated and asked for $94,000 (knowing that was a little high and I wouldn’t get that). The recruiter came back to me and asked if I could provide her data to support this ask. It’s literally based on my current salary and expected promotion/bonus (I know neither of those are certain). I just don’t know how to
Has anyone ever rebounded to B4 but completely new role and department? How does it work?
Hi there, Been in consulting for 18 years, 13 years in offshore delivery positions and 5 years in US. Have been thinking to switch from consulting into low stress jobs, no travel and decent salary.

US fish here. Considering applying for an MBA internationally (INSEAD, LBS, HEC) as a way to pivot to working in the EU. I don’t have a visa so would need sponsorship, does this seem like it would be a possible gateway to getting to work in Europe? Or should I just try to apply for jobs instead. 2 YOE in strategy consulting
My first holiday season in-house after a couple of decades in private practice, doing the same kind of transactional work that I’ve always done. My year is functionally done. No one else is around or working. I’ve been so conditioned to expect to grind out through the holidays that it makes me think of how Brooks in Shawshank had become “institutionalized.” I only worked hard the last couple of days because I set some deadlines so as to get things tied up before the holidays - the old mindset!
Are there any ladies here who want to stay single (or not really prioritize relationships), and stay child free?
