Just got a big raise (50%+) starting July 1st that is going to move me out of income limits for direct Roth IRA contributions (prior to raise was under the limit) even with maxed pretax 401k and HSA - however I am already halfway through contributions ($3000). What options do I have to address these excess contributions?
Wow. Just had the most detailed dream about missing a connection in PHL due to issues with the terminal buses that was so vivid and detailed it took me way too long to realize it didn't happen.
Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.
Recently I have been exploring a career change but a successful first shot at IUI has me panicking about staying or going. Any lessons learned on how to approach this huge decision?

I have been offered a 25 percent hike at a big 4 but have another offer with 40 percent hike in a Boutiqe firm. I asked the HR of the big 4 if she could adjust since I have a 40 percent hike letter. She said she’ll check. She hasn’t gotten back to me yet. Should I contact her? Currently working at one of the Big 4.

Anybody leave big law for a couple of years to raise your kids and successfully rejoined the legal field? Is big law ever an option again?
I am sooo tired of people being inconsiderate and thinking I only work for them, when I have 5 different things that I need to get to.
Mothers, how do you keep your life going / live your life for yourself without having all your time sucked up by work and kids? I grew up with a doting stay-at-home mom, so I don’t have many examples of what balanced motherhood looks like. Also, it seems like American society erases your entire identity as a human being beyond “mom” once you have a kid, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Thinking of having kids someday, but worried I’m too selfish to go for it.
How long did it take to process H4 and H4 EAD this past year. My SO just got their EB1 denied after multiple RFEs. Now have to switch to H4, as the H1B is expiring soon. We’re applying for an O in parallel. Looking for advise or positive stories to stay hopeful. I have an approved I-140
Anyone nervous about h1b ??

What does each firms performance review process look like? I’ll kick off - we have individual case reviews after each case and each 6 months we have a formal consensus review process where all seniors in the level above you discuss each candidate and their rating / promotion decision if they are up for promotion. We also have these mini consensus reviews at the 3 months mark as well within these 6 months to discuss off cycle promotions. What do you like / dislike about yours?
