What happens when a company gets acquired by a B4? Do we keep our benefits/salaries/levels at the new firm? HR is just talking blablabla and its hard to know what is really going on and what we should expect. TIA

It really depends on what their plan is. More likely than not, you won’t get fully integrated and just keep everything you have, continue the way it has been. Unless your company does something that makes an actual integration worthwhile. Give HR some slack though… I know it doesn’t help, but my hunch is the regular HR team has no idea what the plan is and they’re as much in the dark as you are.

Benefits will probably get normalized to new firm. Salaries will stay same for awhile and you'll get gradually shifted to new firm payscale. Levels/titles will be normalized as they're needed for consistently tracking/managing people. It may take a few months for any changes to happen. Eventually in their systems you will look like any other employee. I was acquired about 10 years ago and my salary has just now caught up to the grid. If you have a useful brand (e.g., Strategy& vs. PwC) then you may remain more separate. Source: Acquired by B4, saw other acquisitions.

I am looking for some advice or opinions to apply for consulting jobs right now. I currently work at a mid-sized/regional firm, but plan move to a different city later this year. I have ~4 yr xp working on system implementations, IT policies/controls, and BPO, but my undergrad GPA wasn't the best (I did become a CPA and CISA though). Should I try to apply to big 3/big 4? Stay mid-sized? Get an MBA or Masters? Move and pray? Thanks in advanced for any comments!

Beginner and trying to get my finances in order. Income: $200k+. Maxed out 401k for the year. I have $60k in my savings account (just paid student debt off this year). I’ve searched the bowl… Are next steps: (a) invest (maybe $30k?) in ETFs and add to it each month, (b) open a HYS at HMBradley to hopefully get a high interest next quarter? I’m not convinced about the mega back door Roth (whether it makes sense for my situation) so putting in only a small amount there. Any thoughts? TIA!
