Creating a budget for myself. What % would you say is a good estimate for taxes paid/withheld? I was thinking 40% of gross income. Too high?
I’ve been getting a reverse education in advertising since I started at each consecutive shop I go to. Started with heavy social and activations, moved on to broadcast and OOH, and now all I do is make print ads.
Not much of a confession but it’s so weird.
How is ACN’s change management practice?
Anyone pursuing FIRE and live in NYC? I pay around 20k in state and local taxes each year plus the high rent. That translates to approximately $2k of extra savings if I lived in a state with no income taxes. I love the big city but all the taxes is painful...
What’s your effective hourly wage?
Example: $300K, but you work 80 hours and have 3 weeks vacation. 80 hours x 49 weeks = 3920 hours. Take $300K / 3920 = $76.53 / hour.
Moving to Toronto in September and looking for a male roommate to split a 2 bedroom downtown condo. DM if you or anyone you know would be interested!
Usually a big fan of Mannings in spots, always fun & self-deprecating, but this was hard to watch. Felt like they were just...making it up as they went along.
Busy season. Either it makes you or it breaks you.
I love my job. I’m horribly underpaid. Like at LEAST 75k underpaid. That’s a whole lotta money to sacrifice for love. Right?
Y'ALL I'M GETTING OUTTTTT
2 YOE in life science strategy consulting, about to exit to biotech for $185k TC and somehow this was only the third application I submitted!! Sorry to brag but I'm on the moon right now, and this bowl was hella encouraging so I wanted to share a little positivity :)
EY is making us use 2 vacation days for our “Christmas Break” and 3 for our “Summer Break”. What do other firms that close their office for the holidays do? That’s 1/3 of my yearly vacation
I keep getting terrible scores with ninja and am starting panic. Is this normal? What do people usually get on ninja questions.
Firm will pay $10k annually for education. I’m a manager in a tax related consulting group. Pay isn’t stellar and work is old school. 4.5 YOE $106k base if you must know. Is there any value in getting an affordable online MBA with focus on Business Analytics? So free (ish) or very cheap to me MBA likely no name school but would focus on hard skill development. Thoughts? Worth the 3 years of part time stress? I personally think it would expand my career opptys and help stay skill relevant.
Considering that social distancing seems like it will be with us for a while what do we since we are working in open office cube farms?
