They’re all abysmal. I had 100% of 6% in industry prior

Honestly PwC is good at higher levels. 6% match for full income (base and bonus) at SM and Director and then a separate 401k match for 25% up to 6% of income.

Why do consulting firms offer such a poor 401k match? Left for industry and I’m getting 100% up to max.

PwC matches up to 25% of 6% of salary (1.5%) but also does a separate program where they contribute 3-5% of salary to a different account (that I believe has the same best schedule)

Just checked, based on firm match it’s 25% of 6%. 😒

Way back in the day they gave you 10% of your salary without you contributing. It used to be great…

Does that matter? It’s probably only 1 or 2% difference in the range among the 4

Hi everyone. I interviewed for a sales role at Amazon. I was told the role was an L6 and I can stay based in Chicago. Well, the recruiter emailed me today saying the hiring team felt I was better suited for an L5 role (estimated total comp is $140K-$150K) and I would have to move to Seattle. They'll send me an offer if that works. Any advice or opinions on how to negotiate? For context, I gave a desired salary range of $280K-$310K since this was an L6 role, and my current TC at P&G is $200K.

It’s kind of a lot of $ for me to just do, and I’d rather like, invest it… but I don’t want to be selfish. Idk.
