Unpopular opinion- maxing out your 401K is overrated. I would rather have the money for other investments that I can access now ( ie real estate). Thoughts ?

Anyone know anything about PwC's culture? I just interviewed with a recruiter and they seem so tired that it brought down my mood.
I’m 25. Not a saver. Never have been. I’m not sure why, but I dislike the idea of locking money away in a 401K. Is saving really that important? Are there non 401K options?

Partners, what would be a typical monthly pension check be for MBB / Big 4? All firms welcome.
I know the UK pays less but I am seeing differences of $80-100k for Advisory M at one of the Big 4. Why in the world are salaries so low? And don’t say healthcare. My healthcare is like $140/month for a PPO w low deductible. Plus taxes are less here. Makes the thought of a potential move over there hard :/
What’s with people going from Big 4 or other accounting firms to recruiters? Several of the last recruiters I connected with came from accounting firms. 🧐

My current firm didn’t require a case interview. Would like to leave soon, but want to have my ducks in a row. How can I best prepare for Big 4 and MBB interviews? How did you all do it?
New to this so any guidance is appreciated. Currently have my Roth 401k, Roth IRA, and HSA all through fidelity. 401k is invested my target retirement year fund. Both ira and hsa are fully in FXAIX, Fidelity’s 500 index fund. Is this fine? Obviously I know investing and saving is good but still learning the ins and outs
I am still learning and my sr manager is really making me feel stupid. And maybe its just my firms culture but I am on a new engagement and have no senior above me to guide me, the work stream is just me and my senior manager. She had asked me a question about the engagement as to why we are doing something and she got mad because this was the second time she was telling me. I know she is really upset with me but this is all new and I have no one to go to for regular questions. I feel so dumb

Folks - my parents are planning on visiting us in Nov and I am looking to buy health insurance. They asked in India and an agent is selling them a “cashless policy” which I am a bit unsure if it will work cleanly out here anything happens. My other option is to buy a policy from here where the underwriter is a US based insurance co and get coverage (similar to what we have). Any recommendations?
Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?
Started my first job out of undergrad: base salary 105k. Grew up extremely privileged and have no debts of my own, but also no money of my own and I am completely financially illiterate. Any kind souls willing to help guide me on what I should be doing with all this money now? My company offers a 3% 401k match which I am maxing. Right now I’ve got a fat lump sum just sitting and wasting in savings.
Hello Fishes. I have received positive feedback from KPMG interviews for consultant position and have submitted documents. It has been 4 days since I haven't received any call for negotiation or offer letter. How long does it take to get that?
Which Big 4 has the least layoffs right now on the West Coast? If so, why? More clients, hired just enough, realistic goals, etc...?
I spent the last 3 months "growing up" & now I'm ready to go. 1st thing is for me to get my own place. I'd like to buy instead of rent because I don't want to pay someone else's mortgage. I'm thinking of selling my car & cash out some of my 401k to buy a house. My thought is to put down 3.5% for a FHA loan then make a big payment towards the principal to reduce long-term interest. Anything wrong with this thinking or anything else I should consider?

Got a call from Amazon devices, but it sounds like it can be a crazy / difficult place to work and no one stays there long. What’s the consensus regarding Amazon, is it worth the stress or should I look elsewhere? The salary wouldn’t be that much more than my current one, but the stock vesting might make this interesting
