While this may be bad for companies, it opens doors for those looking for work and advancement for the rest of us. Obviously people wouldn’t retire without adequate savings and so I think this is amazing news for us all. Right? Thoughts please. 🤔

Where do you work, and what educational benefits does your employer provide? Currently working full time and taking some classes toward my master’s. I’ve been at my firm for a little over 2 years as it was my first gig out of undergrad. It provides an annual stipend for education, but I’m bored, unchallenged, unfulfilled, and underpaid. I want to explore what other companies offer to make an educated decision as to whether I should go elsewhere. TIA!

Are there any US immigrants in this bowl? How did you learn and navigate the system here? 401k, Roth IRA, HSA all these things are new to me. In Australia our employer pays our retirement fund. Would love to have some resources to understand the basics of where I should start and how all these funds work.
Indexed Universal Life Insurance (IUL) - Anyone have one of these ? Never heard of this until the other day when a financial planner mentioned it. He said it’s a better vehicle than 401K. I took what he said with a grain of salt because he was trying to acquire customers, but I haven’t heard anyone talk about it here. At a quick glance it seems pretty solid. Anyone have experience ? Pros/Cons ? Something to add on including the standard 401K, Roth, HSA, etc ?

I’m not sure if some of you other firms have heard but EY America’s recently switched to “unlimited PTO”. I want to know your thoughts and if you’d like your firm to do it. We do have 19 paid holidays up from 12 last year.
Have any of you approached your employer for reimbursement for being asked to use your phone at work? Specifically things like texting your boss while they are in court? I started a new job and am trying to set boundaries but this is one that I cannot set as it is standard practice. In our state, an employer must reimburse you if they direct you to use your personal phone for work. It seems petty, but I’m trying to (rightfully) cash in on something that I would rather not have to do.

I was thinking of pivoting to an ESG related position. Does anyone here have experience working within this service line and/or have any advice/suggestions (I.e obtaining certain certs , etc.)? Not much info about ESG experiences within the big 4 online but it does seem interesting given the ambiguity around it. Thanks!

If a recruiter asks for your resume when do you send it? I’ve heard some send it immediately, others wait until they know about the specific position, still others even later? I’m not sure when is best and would appreciate thoughts as to when and why!
So I’m looking for entry level design gigs, I got a request from a company to do an ‘assignment’. I know how these can go, but I’m really desperate for work. I don’t want to get burned. Is there a way I can advise them that the work may not be used on their website/social channels, but I’m interesting in the role without sounding like a dick lol.
Any idea about how to return the joining bonus when its not going to get deducted completely from fnf payment. Thanks for response!
