Hey there Female Bosses! I have a sensitive question and I'd love your opinion... I was tracking for a promotion and pay rise, by all company measures I earned it! The reviews ran into my maternity leave, which resulted in the company telling me nothing will happen while I'm on leave (literal discrimination). Do you have a suggestion on how I make sure I get what I earned over the past number of years? Thanks for your advice
Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today? Women are half the population and at an average of 2.1 kids per woman, these are major issues. Are we not vocal enough? Organized enough? Not a serious voting demographic? Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?
Does anyone know any career coaches in the health and wellness tech world? Trying to transition from consulting. Thanks 🤍
Tip for young ones looking to go to BSchool. Put all your money in traditional 401k. Then when you go to bschool, and have zero wages for that year (maybe the internship), convert to Roth with very low income tax. Tax arbitrage right there! 💸💸💸

Not really a physical health question, but more mental health. I had a rough breakup after a long term relationship and I am having a hard time healing. I’m taking depression meds, but still having a hard time. Anyone have any tips to heal?
Having grown up in the lower middle class and not with much money family wise, I always thought one day when I made six figures I would have tons of money coming in, but lately I am discouraged with my “take home pay”. Combined my wife and I make about $275k, we max both our 401k accounts out and after all taxes, and other deductions we take home roughly $150k. Don’t get me wrong this is a great amount. I just always dreamed my take home would be more. Anyone else feel this way? We lose over 40%
Anyone here invest in whole life insurance? I just started working with a financial advisor and I'm questioning whether this is pretty commonplace for lawyers/ a good idea. Just want to hear if anyone has an opinion on it. Thanks!
35 yo with 340k in 401k. Same amount between investment and savings. Would it be stupid to lower 401k contribution to pay down mortgage faster? (250k remaining, 2.5%/15 yr).
Just realized, I didn’t max out my 401k this year. Any way I can still contribute and count towards 2018 cap?
I currently have an autoimmune disease , receive two immunosuppressive drugs , had my vaccine and still have Covid pretty bad . I am thinking of taking a. Leave of absence because I can’t keep getting sick like this . Has anyone else been in similar shoes ?
I’m a fourth-year associate who just got an offer to go in house. My experience is in litigation but I’d be working on more corporate matters, which scares me. But I hate billables and firm culture and the in-house company is a huge company where you can make moves in once you’re there. My salary would be the same but I’d get better benefits and bonus opportunities in house. Plus I’m a mom and will have on-site childcare. Should I be scared that switching from litigation will be boring?
Getting into “Rental Property”. How many insurances do I have to get in total? I’m still confused about that (assume condo or single-family home): (1) Homeowner insurance (2) landlord insurance (3) renter insurance..... I assume tenant would get no. 3, but as an owner do I have to get no1. AND no.2 or just one of them? Any other insurance I’m missing? 🙏🏼

Dear recruiters - put your comp range in the email if you want a response. The Salesforce market is just so competitive that I’m sure just like all of you, I get dozens of inquiries a week. It just feels like a waste of everyone’s time if I don’t know what it is. Now that I’m actively looking it’s just hard to see where to start!
