How much ($ amount and % of income) do you put towards 401(k)? I put $535 per month and it is 15% of my salary. I contemplating if I need to increase this. I’m 24 and am a worrier about retirement.
Vuzix, got in at $4.50 and this company is going places. Their smart glasses can be used across nearly all industries and has a ton of applications, and they hold critical patents for their industry. Very long on this one - cell phones went from clunky to sexy in just a few years. The wearable tech is getting better and better by the day and the pricing more affordable, just about to gain steam. High insider ownership and no selling with the run up or attempts to raise capital
If you have a flight delay due to weather (not snow, but “high winds” 🙄) - how long of a delay does it need to be for it to be reasonable to ask for compensation? 3.5 hours and counting...
Currently a consultant and looking to exit opps as a product manager for a startup. What should my salary expectations be? I feel like I'm going to have to take a pay cut for the long term experience.
Hi Fishes, I joined EY GDS in July 2021 as Consultant-2 with YOE- 5.11 yrs. Can I expect a promotion next year as Senior? Kindly guide.
What are some signs that it’s time to move on to a new job/ career path? I’m not looking at promotion for realistically another 2 years, same timing for pay raise. On a long term project so I’m locked in for another 2 years at least doing the same thing so not learning nearly like I was when first joining consulting. I’m starting to lose sight of my overall goals and what’s the point of doing all this. Please help!

I got an offer in TCS with 15lpa for AWS Devops but also I got an offer with BMW with 18 lpa.Can I ask TCS HR to revise the salary as I have accepted the offer letter.Will they revise.
Sometimes I wish I never learned about this career path. Ever since I have it’s only caused me stress and anxiety. Anything I accomplish is never good enough since I always have to be working towards the next goal, whether that be another promotion, more impactful projects, an MBA.
I just had my first annual performance review meeting with my manager this past Friday. She had nothing but good things to say about my work, effort etc. thus far. After that she indicated a raise of a little less than 3%. Is this something I can counter? Should companies be giving raises that are at least at the percentage of the inflation rate (Being ~ 6% this year)? I appreciate any feedback!
What goes into the pre-employment background check? Do they really call your previous employer and see the type of work, salary, and etc.?
For those at firms other than PwC, do you guys feel ready to be promoted to senior after only 2 years? I’m a third year at PwC up for promotion but I still don’t know if I feel ready. Just curious
Hello all, I got an offer of x lpa from a company, but on the same day I was informed that I have been promoted in my current organization and the CTC will be around y lpa. y is less than x (around 3 lacs less). Can I negotiate with the HR that I have been promoted as they are offering me a equivalent designation I was on before promotion?
Spoke too soon and gave a lower number than I should have for salary range. What do I say when they come back ?
Does anyone love the fact about FB that the comments are gender neutral - meaning you don't know whether they are from a guy/gal explicitly ?
I work in a 7-attorney firm with a national presence. Partly because I’m only a few months in, I work a roughly 8-6 day. I’m also new to billing and often find myself working all day and billing just 4 hours. Whenever I bring this up to the partner, he says it’s good we’re not over billing our client. We don’t have minimum billable hours so it doesn’t matter much for the firm’s sake but I think I’m missing out on learning the important skill of billing my time. Has anyone ever experienced this?
So peeps, office opening up. What's your plans on moving to Mumbai? Knowing apartment hunting can be a real bitch, some are planning to go back to hometown in the WFH week. i.e work at office at designated week and live in temporary accommodation, and then travel back.
So I earn about $10k a day in a side gig... should I continue to work in consulting? With the work from home thing I can do both.

Interviewing for a role at Deloitte in their Operations Transformation practice (FS background). Read a comment pushing against moving to Big 4 that read "I'd be wary about being an unknown entity at a large company during a global pandemic." Is this valid? How did most people fare during the pandemic? Is joining a big 4 now a bad idea?
Folks who moved from MBB to a top-tier tech firm (E.g. FAANG): how does the talent compare between the two?

What does the market look like for M&A consultants in the next two years? I'm talking to a firm that has 90%+ utilization so they have open roles. Changing companies in a time like this appears risky though. What is everyone else seeing?

I’m nearing the end of my project and I’d like to express to my team managers and leads that a teammate should be put on PIP for continually disobeying project guidelines and not listening or following any of my instructions / suggestions. This person has made the project almost unbearable but the project is close to finish. I have real concerns though I might encounter them in other projects . What do I do?
Just came across this great resource: How to design with intentionality and inclusivity https://chetnetwork.com/pathway/how-to-design-with-intention-and-inclusion?utm_source=Reddit&utm_medium=Post&utm_campaign=productdesign_divyamicrocourse
Final round of interview was last week Tuesday. Still haven’t heard anything 😩. I really really really want the position. Please pray for me 🥴🥺
Please don’t waste someone’s time asking for a referral if someone else already gave you one. Most companies won’t let you have more than one referral and all you do is eat up someone’s time that is willing to help you out. It’s happened more than a few times now; just be honest that you want to learn more about a company / role and I’ll be just as willing to help you.
Anyone from PwC deals willing to chat? Would love to learn about the work, culture, your experience. Thanks in advance!
