It’s ridiculously boring work but has great hours and pay

Correct, it has an incredibly low hit rate for good creative work.

I do spend an awful lot of time explaining local stuff (from local landscape to advertisement regulations) but I enjoy it. What’s not to love about the client who pays you well and treats you like a king?

Creative aside- there’s some really well done and interesting healthcare stuff, depending on the agency and brand- you’ll probably have to take a much deeper dive (ie understand and interpret) pathologies of certain diseases. Generally with HCP but this is sometimes the case with DTC as well.

I have an issue: just been informed by compliance I have a violation. Using a brokerage restricted and at this point I am at a loss. I sold off all my stock just to comply. Then put the only stock I kept with the broker, the other one is my wife’s employer 401k savings broker. The instructions say they will reach me within 90 days for next steps. It also says there may be financial penalties. What should I do? I replied the email immediately asking for help. I am a new to Deloitte and the US

Starting a job on Monday - the company does not yet offer employer match for 401k. Would you still contribute or move straight to IRA? The company is a startup and working on establishing a match. All of the other benefit plans/offerings are insane.

Hello, I am 36 and have over 250k in savings. I started saving late (at 32) as I didn’t make much and lived in NYC. I used to be on a visa and had little to say on my salary negotiations. Upon getting my green card, my salary doubled when I changed jobs and I started saving extensively. Today I make around 180k a year and am able to save $4.5k a month and 7% towards 401k. I have no kids and I am looking to maximize savings. Any advice? Thanks!

Beginner and trying to get my finances in order. Income: $200k+. Maxed out 401k for the year. I have $60k in my savings account (just paid student debt off this year). I’ve searched the bowl… Are next steps: (a) invest (maybe $30k?) in ETFs and add to it each month, (b) open a HYS at HMBradley to hopefully get a high interest next quarter? I’m not convinced about the mega back door Roth (whether it makes sense for my situation) so putting in only a small amount there. Any thoughts? TIA!
