Is this salary too low? I'm @ final interview for senior accountant and job posting said $60-65k. Before you say it's too low right away, my experience is on a low end of this of this role. Just 1 year auditer @ national top 10, 6 months intern at same firm, 1 year accounting intern at local private firm, and 2 years doing AP clerk. I'm a licensed CPA and in MCOL. I really want this title for growth but don't want to get stiffed. It's a large corp w/ great benefits.

What are some good baby books. This is baby 2 so didn’t do baby shower and some of the things we did with our first, so would like something that is easily customizable and not too much work!
Looking to boomerang back to PwC. The offer for a salaried position was pretty solid, but that one-time sign on bonus will go away the next year (obviously). They mentioned ‘Talent-Exchange’ and getting paid hourly with no benefits. If I did that, I would make about 205k (gross, with no benefits). That’s assuming I would average 55 hours a week throughout the year (pretty similar to what I work right now). Anyone have experience doing this? I’m worried averaging 55 is not possible.
Is anyone else feeling a sense of increased anxiety but can’t put their finger on why? My workload actually feels a bit lighter, but I’m feeling a sense of almost suffocation. The holidays? Seasonal depression? General fatigue from covid?
Need some advice. I’m 21, my partner is 29. We have a son together. As I get older, I realize I don’t know if I’m ready to settle down completely. I know that sounds crazy, because I am a mom, but I want to travel around and my partner thinks it’s not doable with a family. I also want to eventually move out of state to explore other opportunities, but he’s not interested. He thinks we are just at two different points in our life. Is this a reason to part ways?
My parents have always said put the most amount into your 401k but I only put around 8-9%. I currently have 223k in it at 35. I would put more but I have been investing that money in the market to hopefully use in the next couple of years. Any advice on what is a good percentage. I'm sure most will tell me to max out.

Favouritism? I got screwed over, paired with another art director. Same job title, salary, started at the same time. After doing good work together, I won awards individually, turned down a job offer to stay in this company...was let go and it turned out my cd who dealt with my pay etc and decided where briefs went had never raised the job I turned down with management, I was earning less and he had been giving the good opportunities to the other junior ad. Ended in me getting a pay off...
