If you live in NYC now but plan to move out eventually does it make sense to pick pre-tax 401k over a Roth 401k?
Can you quit your job while on short term disability? Will you get penalized somehow? Going on maternity leave (which is just short term disability) and planning my options out.
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Deloitte hiring freeze? I had a verbal offer and reviewed benefits 3 weeks before the covid environment. I was informed that I would be contacted when there was an update. Wait or reach out? Advice?
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
Need some advice! I'm a recent PhD grad (30 yo) in STEM, and just got some offers from different companies. Particularly, two of them are interesting to me. 1) from a Energy Market Company in Pennsylvania as an Operations Research Scientist, 95k + 15% bonus + very good benefits and generous PTO. It's a very chill job (9-5) with good people but limited opportunity to growth. 2) from a consulting company in NYC as a data science consultant, 130k + 10k signing bonus. Which one you choose? why?
If my firm allows both traditional and Roth 401K, which one should I invest in? 27 years old, $90k salary.

How can I become more “okay” with being an average performer? I’m two years out of school and have been considered a high performer so far, but it’s taken a toll on my mental health and I feel anxious most days. I’ve realized that the cost of being a high performer outweighs the benefits, and am trying to loosen up and be more comfortable with coasting on occasion... I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
trying to decide if i downgrade from CSR to CSP. for anyone who has done so, do you qualify for the perks like free dashpass and peloton credit? do you get to keep existing benefits like lyft pink? sadly not eligible for the CSP bonus yet.
What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits. Apparently it is quite a tough study. Is it worth the time or should I invest my time elsewhere? Also do you have learning material you are willing to share :D?
I got fired from Facebook in 2013 and then got a better job at Google (five years now). I want to go back to Facebook, but I'm not sure if they'd consider me again, or if it's even less likely.
i just fired someone today
Interviewing w/ IBM Watson Health... Anyone have feedback on the firm / direction? Curious about brand new CEO...firm has acquired a lot in healthcare recently, but also had major layoffs last year
My first cross team interaction was with contractors. I felt like ZS is similar to any other IT company keeping the culture in mind. After a few days, I have had a chance to talk with ZSers and I must say you guys are one of the best people I have interacted with in my career. So empathetic and helpful. Cheer guys. How can we inculcate the same behaviour in contractors?
Does thinking about ur project at home count as "billable hours"?Apparently my manager thinks so. The joy of fed consulting.

Moving to NYC next year, and my SO is based in Seattle. He is very keen to spend more time with me in NYC, even suggesting living there while remote working is still a thing. I’m a little hesitant bc we’ve only been dating for 2-3 months and it would feel like moving in tgt. Also not sure if i should be looking for a studio or 1br for more space but at a much higher price tag that i have to pay for. Any thoughts?
Do people in analytics groups (Quantum Black, Gamma, Lighthouse, etc) get access and exposure to the parent firm's training for general mgmt consultants?

LEK vs Parthenon? Heard both are sweatshops. Would love to hear real life data points. Thank you in advance!
A&M fishes do you feel pressure while taking vacations as your comp is tied to billable hours? Also what’s the policy on remote work, can people work from another country (eg. Canada or Europe ) for a few days if they are supporting during US work hours. Big 4 is strict about international work location, so just curious.
Any tips on how I can land an MBB interview. My goal is to work there instead of doing an MBA and doing the switch. I have a fairly prestigious undergrad background. ~top 30
