Hey mummas, I'm struggling with how I feel about my team at work. None of them, including my manager, have children and they just don't get it. I'm pregnant with my third and my manager has never once asked me how I'm doing, only ever refers to it in terms of me 'leaving' for maternity leave so he'll be a resource down. Never once asked how I'm coping with juggling wfh & full time caring for my children through covid, and icing on the cake my baby just recently.. (continued in comment)
Are manager health, dental, etc benefits firm paid usually? Ive always thought this to be the case, but ive never heard for sure. I know parking and cell phone is usually covered a lot of places.
What does big tech in house counsel salary look like? Is there a salary scale? Are there unspoken benefits that make it closer to big law salaries- like by stock options, 401k match, other perks?
Unpopular opinion- maxing out your 401K is overrated. I would rather have the money for other investments that I can access now ( ie real estate). Thoughts ?
Is this reasonable or am I missing something? I started maxing my 401k from year 1 and I hope to have $5 million or more by the time I retire around 60. Wouldn’t it make sense to put all of my yearly $19,500 401k contribution to ROTH 401k instead of traditional 401k? My reasoning is that I would pay 35% tax now and my remaining 65% would grow tax-free in ROTH 401k…. versus traditional 401k where I deposit 100% but every distribution will be taxed 35% assuming I make a lot in retirement.
SaaS contract playbooks: Anyone willing to link to good resources or have some tips/best practices (or links) to drafting & negotiating SaaS contracts? I have westlaw, just wanting to read more anecdotal/personal experience type content you’d get from a mentor. Pref for healthcare tech or subscription based resources but any SaaS would be helpful!
Looking for some investment advice. I am 24, make $125K+$50k bonus. I currently max out my Roth IRA & 401K, invest in my HSA. I am living at home for a few months so have extra cash lying around. What should I do with it? (Already use a HYSA) I would like to buy a house / property in 5 years or less
Setting up a 401k for the first time. Did you decide to do pre-tax or post-tax? Why did you decide that? Retirement savings and options are all overwhelming!
Started my first job out of undergrad: base salary 105k. Grew up extremely privileged and have no debts of my own, but also no money of my own and I am completely financially illiterate. Any kind souls willing to help guide me on what I should be doing with all this money now? My company offers a 3% 401k match which I am maxing. Right now I’ve got a fat lump sum just sitting and wasting in savings.
23YO, saved 90K, 70k salary, been working for 1 year. Started investing in crypto and stocks a few months ago, maxing out 401k and Roth IRA. Any advice for investment or saving strategy?

Can you get points and Platinum benefits for your stay if you get a Marriott using Hotwire?
I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!
Why is pharma/healthcare unpopular? Have seen a few things in the bowl and just curious!
Best consulting firms in Houston for Healthcare?
Anyone have any good educational materials for participants in a 401k that you provide education for? Thanks
I am currently working as Senior Consultant in my current firm and just got an offer from Deloitte UK and Version1 for HCM Cloud practice. Version1 pays more (75k basic + quarterly profit share) and has good employee centric policies where else Deloitte has 60k basic + 5100 in flex benefits and no clarity on bonus. The only reason why I wanted Deloitte was for the exposure but is it really worth it? Considering the work life balance may not be as great here as well. Will appreciate any help
For folks who worked/lived in a foreign country, why did you leave your country? What are the benefits of working globally career-wise? Would you recommend doing it to a consultant at the early stage of his/her career?
Hey everyone - from an EEO audit perspective, I’m not sure how to classify our Solutions Consulting (pre sales), Customer Success, and Partnerships teams. All are commissioned employees so my gut says Sales Workers but they aren’t direct sales so that part thinks Professional. What are your thoughts?
It seems like the work life balance at MBB is always described as horrendous. But how does Bain keep receiving the number one best place to work per glassdoor? Heck, they received an award for best places to work for parents. Are they paying for that ranking? Is Bain really not that bad? Just seems to be some conflicting info.
Five emails from recruiters this week. I want to reply to three of them, but I've only been in public for 11 months (including my internship). 😟
My (white) manager consistently gives me feedback that I’m “very literal” when doing assignments. She asks for something, I do what her directions say, and she tells me “oh you took that very literally. You’re very literal.” Obviously consulting is subjective and we’ve all had managers give vague directions leading to multiple iterations of work, but at what point do I push back? I’ve also noticed her say this about several black colleagues including clients and the senior mgr on the project.
Got an interview for Cisco Product Manager role. Anyone have any experience with their culture, compensation and WLB?
This post is totally the definition of privilege, but I want to spend a small % of my bonus on something that’s just for ME (not house, car, daycare, practical, etc). Any suggestions for fun things?
Has anyone paid their tax bill with a CC for points? I presume there was an additional fee for this? How was your experience?
Hi European 🐠 My company is currently looking for IT architects and tech consultants (any level). We’re a boutique with a amazing team culture and really very interesting projects, great learning opportunities (aka we don’t get hired to take over tasks no one wants to do, we get hired to make a difference) + above average comp. Relocation is not necessary, as long as you’re in CET time zone and live close to an airport. DM me for more information! Cheers
I work with several people with kids and I have noticed quite often that they completely disregard any issues of people with no kids and try to one up work life imbalance conversations with stories of them being parents. It must be hard being a parent but I don’t think people at work should be treated differently or given any additional consideration just because they have a kid. You already get parental leave so If I’m expected to work 12hr I ask the same to be expected from my peers with kids.
People who have made a job switch to another state in US (H1b transfer) in last 1+ years (since covid) with most companies being remote temporarily the Uscis rule that the employee should be in commutable distance from@office location within 30 days - how is this being taken care?
