In Aus we get a discretionary 5k wellness allowance


For Boston, there’s a deal with Equinox in the area. Also you can get reimbursed up to $300 per year for gym/fitness items through Aetna health insurance.

Thanks! 300 per year is very low. Do I need to be on BCG's health insurance to be able to avail it?
I'm wondering if the NY office has some deals as well with gyms in the area?

Here is my monthly budget. Family of 4. I’m saving about 6k (48%). I max out my 401(k) and HSA.

-400k equity in house
-75k in 401k
-65k in investment account
-4.5k in HSA
-15k in Crypto (was 60k a couple months ago)

We need to get a bigger SUV (about to become a family of 5). How much would you spend on an SUV and what would you want your monthly payments to be? I can get 2.9%/60 months at my credit union. I need something big (no minivan). Thinking Toyota Sequoia. Thanks.

Hi guys! I’ve been with the company for about 3 years but feeling like it’s time to move on. I don’t feel very connected to my workplace or colleagues, but overall it’s a good place to be, good pay and benefits. The catch is that my company is just starting a PR process for me, so I’m stuck here for 2+ years which seems like an awful lot amount of time. Do you think I should stay put and wait for my GC or try to find a new job and relocate to another city like I wanted to? Cont.

I am a sales rep and have worked extremely hard to build a large book of business. Every year upper management seems to find a way to cut commissions and make my hard work, worth less. Is this common? It’s pretty draining to work harder and get paid less year over year even though you’re typically getting more business. I don’t feel valued. Do more for less? Any other great sales companies/ industries that people are happy with and compensated accordingly? Preferably uncapped commissions

We just had a new associate start today. They are still on their old biglaw firm’s website. As someone who was previously let go (and has had friends let go), I know what this means. PSA to people who were laid off/fired, remember to let your old firm know when you’re starting at your new firm so it isn’t so obvious that you were let go. I don’t judge people for being let go, but many people are not as friendly/kind.

So I’m probably thinking too much. But I’m looking to leave public accounting and have an opportunity with internal audit. I want to make sure where I go I have good opportunities to advance and if needed be marketable to other companies. Do you think internal audit makes you more or less marketable to other opportunities in the future?

Would you find it weird if you go out on a date with a girls once or twice and she tells you her real name?

Job, school, instagram etc is not there either. Never thought about it being weird tbh but want to hear from others
