Can anyone opine on NY 529 plans? Have one kid and debating if it is beneficial. I like the tax benefits it provides but not sure if the advantages go away if I end up relocating outside US after 4-5 years, or if my kid decides to not study in US or NY in future.

I should be more sensitive but I think it's fucked up to start a new job and tell your boss after a week that you will be out on maternity leave in 4 months.

How would you change your life if you woke up tomorrow with a million dollars in the bank? It’s not really enough to “retire” if you have 50 more years to live (maybe you could make it work through) but it’s enough to give you a lot of freedom to make new life choices.
Hello I just started my first job (I’m 22) and I need to set up a 401k for matching with my company. I’m really confused how this works because I want to try to hit the IRS maximum of $19,500 for Roth contributions this year. Maybe it’s too late in the year now, but it’s asking me to pick my desired contribution % per pay period, but I’m not sure how much to do because it says it’ll kick in 1-2 pay cycles and I don’t even know when the next pay check comes yet. Any tips would be great

thoughts on ZS vs. LEK vs. Putnam for healthcare / LS strategy work? Currently Phd + 1 YOE (w early promo) - would lateral to ~Sr LSS in a LON office + relocate to NY within a year. Dilemma: giving up decent-ish culture & WLB / friendships w Ps / fast track to manager for greater diversity of strategy projects (current focus quite P&MA heavy). What would you do - jump now and diversify (to be a more rounded manager in more time) or stay (for fast tracked manager w narrower expertise)?
What are the ultimate consulting exit apps (I.e? specific role/team & industry) for the non-technical consultants? Looking to understand the exit opps available that: 1.

Currently working in IT audit and exit ops are tough to find outside of audit (applying /interviewing for 6 months now…). At this point I’m considering a masters program in either cybersecurity or data science in order to make the jump to a new career path. Does anyone have experience taking this route? Would love to obtain some perspective or advice from someone who experienced a similar situation. Also, my degree is in accounting, but most professional experience is in cyber-focused audits.

Hi All, what would be starting salary (approx.) for management level 8 in Accenture ATCI?
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
