I think the stock market is going to crash any day. Should I have my 401k and index funds moved from high risk to low risk allocations or should I just ride the crash and not time the market?
What would make you choose a 3 person firm with less pay/benefits over a BigCo? I’m hiring in the new year and I’d love some thoughts from you all. Thanks!
PwC fish, how many years does it take the combination of the wealth builder and 401k match to effectively equal the 6% match that other firms offer comparatively right out of the gate?
Canadian living in the US, should I max out my 401k? Not sure if I’m going to stay in the US for the long term or move away. Employer will match but there’s a 4year vest
Feeling cash strapped - Just bought a home and feeling cash strapped. Thinking about stopping 401k contributions for a year or so to get more cash. My firm matches 25% up to 6% of my contribution, so I will also lose this. Thoughts???

What options do I have to address these excess contributions?

Booz folks, how is your health insurance?
Vaguely interested in the concept of a facial, but I’m sure I’d never make it a regular thing. Is it worth doing if it’s something you’d likely only do like once or twice a year? E.g., are there still benefits if that infrequent?
What would you choose if you were in your mid 20s- A great company in a very tiny city or a relatively unknown company in a big city. Let's assume the pay, benefits etc are great for both.
Got a verbal offer for a job that I want. The offer is pretty good too, more in line with the work I want to do, 40% raise in base salary, and other benefits are roughly the same. Waiting on the official offer, to come on Monday. The problem is, Stockholm syndrome is real, I keep feeling bad for leaving my team as busy season is kicking off. What are ways to deal with this “guilt”?
Does what I contribute to an employer 401k affect how much I can contribute to my own Roth IRA/IRA or are the max contributions counted separately? I’m looking to contribute the max to my Roth for the first time but don’t want to accidentally over contribute. Any advice is appreciated :)
Unpopular opinion. I’m a young woman of color. I think we’re all focusing on race when it comes to violence in America when the issue is actually with men. Men of all colors have been terrorizing America yet everyone is arguing about white supremacy.
I should have trusted in you earlier than I did Cathie Wood. Should have purchased a lot more ARKK earlier this year, but hesitated because of the expense ratio. But over the past few weeks, I realize that this actually fits well out into what I'm aiming for in my taxable investment portfolio in terms of allocation.

Best Marriott properties in Chattanooga (maybe Nashville)? Looking to use some free nights and upgrades.
Just got my exit offer, approx. 30% increase in TC to work for a pre-IPO tech company with better WLB and growth opportunity. At D, I feel overworked and underpaid / underleveles. But I am sad to leave my team and will weirdly miss this place. Stockholm syndrome?
Hi everyone. I am having a rough time with morale at my company. The issues can be traced back directly to senior leadership, and I have rolled up the feedback and issues time and time again. I am no longer sure what to tell employees who come to me for help. We just launched an engagement survey (my last ditch effort to get senior leaders to LISTEN). Any advice on how best to coach employees through this if I am losing hope that things will change?
