I am deeply influenced by the FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) principles.. wondering.. have people seen young partners (say A level partners) retire after a couple years? How does it affect pension for such partners? Context: I'm trying to retire in the next 10-12 years.. which (if i stay in consulting) will probably be y2 or so as PPMD. Trying to gather some historical precedence info from the expert here!Deloitte

I need some loan advice. I have 55k in the stock market earning roughly 8% a year (not including 401k retirement money). I have 40k in student loans and 27k in car loans both at roughly 9% APR. Should I keep investing and paying the monthly payments or sell some stock and pay off the car at least?
So, a month ago I was offered a data engineer position at a fintech firm. I was going to accept it. The interview process had taken over a month. Then, at the last minute, an old coworker/friend - who is a manager at FAANG now - randomly offered me a data engineer __contractor__ position at a FAANG. The rate was really good - more than the fintech company was offering as annual salary. Rate was 160/HR and fintech was 275K TC. The benefits are ok - it’s a W2 contractor. But I’m thinking of...
Are the benefits really worth dumping my bonus into my loans v. Investing? For reference I have 280k (undergrad+law school 🥵) and nothing besides my 401k which is maxed for the year… class of 20 so relatively new

I’m a third year tax associate with my LLM. I left the IRS for a small boutique M&A firm that had a great reputation in my region. I have been at the firm for 3 weeks and I just found out that 2 of the 4 partners are leaving and taking a bunch of the senior associates with them. The only tax partner is leaving to go in-house and semi retire. I am going to be the only tax associate at the firm. So what’s the play here, look for a way out as fast as possible or ride it out for the time being?

Hello, I am 36 and have over 250k in savings. I started saving late (at 32) as I didn’t make much and lived in NYC. I used to be on a visa and had little to say on my salary negotiations. Upon getting my green card, my salary doubled when I changed jobs and I started saving extensively. Today I make around 180k a year and am able to save $4.5k a month and 7% towards 401k. I have no kids and I am looking to maximize savings. Any advice? Thanks!

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.

Thoughts on the best way to hold cash I'm planning to use it as housing down payment in ~6 months?

Sources will be existing investments, cast bonus and sale of current property.

As a member of the bar, it is unfortunate some of the fellow lawyers abuse their position by threatening non-lawyers who find a concept of litigation too intimidating. A family member was trying to rent out an apartment and received multiple offers. One of the prospective renters is now threatening to sue unless they get paid for a month worth of rent or they actually get the apt. No paper signed, but they tried to make it sound like they actually had a meritorious case using lawyer status.
