Hello, anyone from Akamai technologies, Bangalore?? Need some info on the employee benefits (covid benefits). Thank you.
I am very conservative in investment. Have $650K in CDs/HYS, $50K in stock funds, and maxing out 401K. I have no debt except $520K of house mortgage @ 2.6% interest rate (house value is approx $1M). Does it make sense to pay out a portion of the mortgage or should I invest more in the market?
How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
Is 1.68 for a townhouse is expensive for house hold income ~600k? we can do 20% down. I am just nervous as we are in the hook for $7.5k mortgage every month including property tax, hoa and insurance. Just can’t seem to decide or let go!
I don’t own a car as I don’t need it on a daily basis and where I leave there is not a big need for it. I normally rent a car 2-4 days a month on the weekends which is much cheaper. My credit cards provide me with insurance for damage on the car but not for liability, I was thinking that getting a non-owners insurance would be better/cheaper than pay one at the rental Company every time. Any advice on this? Is it worth it? Any non-owner insurance recommendations? Thanks!!
M2 NYC metro area working in healthcare consulting base around $131K low for an M2 in a high COL or market? No MBA, but want to pursue in the next 2 years to pivot to working in health strategy.
Deciding that next year (ideally before) is my cut off for leaving this job; whether it’s through a new career path, manual labor or just quitting without a backup plan. My mental health deserves better, sticking it out for one more year as I aim to to be vested in my 401K and save up for 6-9month emergencies. I feel insane for leaving consulting especially with only 1-2 YOE but it’s just not worth it anymore.
Very niche but freelance moms in the UK - is there a way to get (federal) maternity leave benefits?
It seems that management doesn’t always understand that employee engagement is tied to many things such as work/life balance, benefits, workload, etc. Any ideas on how to present this type of info to management? We have already done an engagement survey and delivered results but there is lack of action planning which is also not heavily backed up by leadership. Any ideas on how to deliver this message so it makes an impact?
Speaking of boutique firms. What's the name of the trendy millennial one with crazy health benefits that was ranked #1 recently for fun and WLB? I think it was in PA and did primarily healthcare...
Just discovered that the SO and I have the ability to mega back door IRA at our respective jobs. Wondering if we should be investing there vs our after tax investment account. Already maxing 401k, backdoor roth IRA, HSA, and 1k a month to a joint after tax account
What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits. Apparently it is quite a tough study. Is it worth the time or should I invest my time elsewhere? Also do you have learning material you are willing to share :D?
Really tempted to get a car so I have a bit more freedom, esp. these days (I live in a small apartment downtown). Should I get one if I can afford the monthly payments plus insurance, fuel, and parking? Lease or finance?
Considering a move to KPMG for their pension plan. Can anyone give me details for their plan? Also any other advice regarding KPMG.
When folks provide total compensation numbers....does that include just base + bonus or base + bonus + pension + 401k match
How do you get better at contract negotiations? (I’m a 4th yr. in commercial real estate) I feel like I’m generally good at pulling together an initial draft of an agreement (ex PSAs)...but I struggle when comments come back. Specifically, I struggle with reading newly proposed language & deciding what stays, what goes, & what needs to be tweaked. Are there books I can read (or CLEs I can watch) to get better at this?
That moment when client data is garbage but it's up to you to decipher through it and make sense of it ☹️
I am a finance consultant at Wells Fargo who graduated May of 2019. Have two years of experience in the finance industry and am looking to make the switch to IB, preferably in NYC. Does anybody have any tips on how to break into IB? Is it possible without prior internship experience in banking? What are best practices? Thanks for the help!
Anybody done the Hilton Grand Vacations package in Hawaii? Where you sit through a timeshare pitch for 70% discount on hotel. Was it worth it? Was the property nice? Hidden fees?
Very weird watching a presidential candidate explain/defend management consulting in a NYT interview. Even some questions about federal contractors! Maybe people will stop asking what my job “means”

How much salary should I expect for a supervisor position at a mid sized accounting firm?
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Free and Reduced Lunch, pensions, health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, caring for your neighbor, and PUBLIC EDUCATION. That’s just a small list of things I’m told I should hate because they’re all socialist. I’m not at all sorry to report that I’m FOR all of those things. Call me whatever you want.
There's a consulting team (probably big 4) that's been working in the conference room next to mine and they have 2 Costco-sized bags of trail mix on their table. #respect

Anyone ever had trouble with a doctor not wanting to certify a family member’s condition, in order to take a leave of absence? My brother attempted suicide via drug OD (he was addicted) and he’s been hospitalized for over a week with seizures, psychosis, peeing blood, etc. We have visited him every day, driving 100+ miles round trip. The doctor is giving my father and me grief, saying (quote) “you aren’t providing care, the hospital is” and “there’s no reason you can’t go back to work.”
