Seems like this is a good place to get a reality check on what I am looking for in a position. I am trying to leave my current firm. I am a Senior Tax Accountant. Been the only Senior for a year. Currently make $76k. Had a bonus of $4500 this year. Not sure what the bonus is going to be next year (or if there will be any) since they are moving to a new bonus plan that is supposed to be more "fair and generous" We have a Safe harbor 401k plan. So get an automatic 3% contribution to 401K.
What does a relatively good benefits package look like? I’m a youngster and want to make sure I’m not being ~exploited~ 😊
Anyone else care more about getting into a top grad school (ivy- MIT-Stanford) more to please your grandparents and overseas relatives than the career benefits? I feel a weight has been lifted as the eldest sibling
Hi Fishes, I have recently joined PwC SDC as an Associate 2. Wanted to know that is there any smartphone reimbursement or mobile phone program here. TIA!
What percentages should you contribute for before-tax and Roth 401k? How much does ACN match up to?
Has the blush come off the rose for this shining city on a hill? Have any other foreign fish in the US been asking yourself why we made the conscious decision to seek out a life in this country? The racial tensions and frequent shootings (including a much covered grocery store that I used to frequent) are outweighing the benefits of staying here. Never have I had to worry this much about going to the grocery store. The reaction of society here towards these issues is also dismal. Is it worth it?
Should I move my 401K contributions into less stock heavy investments? I'm at a biglaw firm with no employer matching.
My husband and I (both 27) max out our Roth IRAs each year, have a complete emergency fund, and I’m able to start maxing my 401K this year (he contributes 10% to his 401K - it isn’t possible for him to max his based on his current pay). We contribute 18% extra towards principal on our mortgage each month. We now have about $20k of additional savings we want to figure out what to do with. What would you recommend to someone who is new to stocks/investments?
I have my MHA and upon graduation I saw myself working for a large hospital/ healthcare org in a more administrative role. Ended up in consulting despite my desires and am regretting it almost 2 yrs later. Not sure where to start looking since I would take a pay cut with many admin roles or I don’t have enough experience yet for higher paying roles. Trying to determine if switching to industry is worth the pay cut or if anyone has any other suggestions of jobs to look towards, please lmk

Have any of you quit to take a break - 3 month or a 6 month sabbatical to pursue other interests or just to clear your head and figure out what’s next. How easy was it to find a job after the break and how did you manage your health insurance? Any other things to keep in mind when considering a sabbatical beyond money?
ACN 🐟 Is there a reason why the benefits package is hush hush? I'd like to compare my current package to the one ACN offers and I was told by the recruiter that they can't give it to me. I'm not asking for cost, just what's covered. Which honestly, not even saying how much it'll cost you is weird, too.
State your firms retirement benefits...401k and so on. Accenture is 100% match up to 6%, but only after year 1.
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.
Is it advisable to withdraw from 401K savings? In a financial difficulty & trying to assess options where I don't have to ask friends/family. I'm an international, so tax implications vary.
This might be a dumb question but when folks say max out 401k contributions, do they mean the full 19.5k per year? I usually do the 5% to get my company match.
What should I do? My 401k went from gaining 38% year after year for the past 4 years, now I'm losing money rapidly. I lost over 11k twice this week already. I been down almost every day this week. Please offer some good advice. What should I do? Should I put everything into safer stocks or just sit tight and ride it out?

Had a 3.2 in undergrad at UC Berkeley. Struggled with mental health 2 of my semesters, which reflects in my transcript pretty evidently. Is it worth writing an optional essay about? Just don’t want to be dinged and not seen as capable for grad level courses bc of that

Are there any disability insurance companies who would take a bipolar client? Please help!
Just received cousin's invite to her wedding and it's on a Sunday. It's not necessarily a destination wedding but is in a city that neither she nor her family, nor her partner's family lives, so everybody has to fly + get hotels. I'm annoyed because I think it's a but disrespectful to your guests to make them all travel and do it on a Sunday so people have to take time off work Monday in order to attend. I know I don't have to attend, but shouldn't it be convenient for guests?
Stuck in india due to delayed visa processing. HR just asked me to either take vacation time or unpaid time off while I wait. Curious to know if anyone in my situation explored any other options ?

Does anyone have any tips to get back into a healthy lifestyle after giving yourself a break for a few days. I had been doing really well for the last 2-3 months, was feeling great and lost about 20lbs. I went away for the weekend and didn’t go crazy but let myself have cocktails and dessert and now I’m having a hard time getting back into the habits I had developed. I feel sick but I keep making bad choices

QQ for any TTP users: what would you recommend as the most accelerated use of the portal? I have my GMAT in about 10 days. I've had access for half a month and I'm through ~20% problems. I've only targeted sections where I felt I needed the most improvement mainly focusing on chapter tests. If I haven't met the accuracy needed, I've then spent time on the lessons and usually hit the accuracy after. For additional context, aiming for Q47+. I was on a Q45 on a Veritas mock last week.
