How often do you convert your after tax 401k contributions as part of the mega backdoor?
What % of your net pay do you invest? I max out my 401k, and I currently put $7k away (either in an ETF or in my bank account). I just bought a place and now I’ll only be able to put away $4k or so. I usually keep $5-6k from my paycheck and spend it on whatever, but I’m wondering if I should be putting a lot more away? I’m not trying to retire early and I like to live comfortably.
Hello fishies! Curious to know everyone’s experience with networking during a transition. When chatting with someone who is trying to pivot into a new role, do you find that they often withhold saying anything negative or potential conflicts/challenges about the team dynamic or role itself. Do you find yourself doing this? If so, why? It seems like only benefits the employer and keeps employees in a perpetual state of discomfort. Thanks
Can't imagine how people not having health insurance survive these insane costs. So fortunate 🙏🏽
Anyone on here consider taking a federal position? Pros/cons for going from federal consultant to taking a GS-14 federal position? I’m debating it for the flexibility and benefits

What are some of the challenges and benefits of pursuing an international career trajectory? As a young professional in the US, I have an interest in returning to China/SE Asia to work or study, and perhaps one day go to Europe. This certainly would fulfill my endless sense of adventure but I’m wary of the implications this may have on my relationships, career, identity, etc. Any fish who are older/mid-career that may have a longer term perspective on this? Consulting is not my long term career
When are we supposed to submit reimbursement for health benefits? (Gym, treadmill, etc...)
Neither of my parents have a 401k, investments, or savings. They have nothing. I want to help them retire at 65 which would be about 15 years away. I’m looking to put about $15k/ year until then into an account for them. A couple questions i have though: 1. What type of investment account would be best to maximize? 2. Once gifted to them, will they be taxed if they receive a certain amount? I have little to no knowledge in investing so I’m open to any other ideas and/or advice.
Anyone at UnitedHeath Group willing to refer? Or specifically at Optum? Have a healthcare background + 4 years of commercial experience.
Early 20s. Have amassed around 100k in my 401k. I have been contributing pre tax and just recently this year did both pre tax 19,500 and 6k in my Roth IRA as well. Am I doing this correctly? Should I be contributing into the after tax bucket vs. pre tax going forward for next year?
Currently mid twenties, and trying to take financing more seriously and would really appreciate some insight on how to allocate my income into savings! Make about roughly 70k a year (post-tax, no pre-tax contributions). I spent about $3,350 a month (~40k a year on rent, car loan, bills etc), so I have about roughly 30k to save annually. Obviously putting 6k into roth ira, and I need help with insight on how to allocate he remaining 24k between Roth 401k, emergency fund, personal saving, etc.
That time of the year when you've been maxing the 401k all year and finally hit the limit. The extra bread in your paycheck feels like a fake bonus.
Got a new job in tech and the office opens up in a month. What should I expect to wear? Haven’t started so don’t know who to ask lol. It’s a strategic role at a healthcare tech company
401k match question - what are the benefits for your firm? For Accenture we get 100% match up to 6% (total of 12%) after we are employed for at least 2 years. Just wondering how it’s like in other consulting firms.
For those of you that are nonreligious, how do you cope with the fear of death/being dead?
For Advisory folks: compensation is out (bonus is still a mystery). Go to "ht tps://deloittenet.deloitte. Com /cb/pages/ home.aspx. Then go to "access the benefit enrollment tool" then login to SAP. Then search for core life.

To all consultants out there: I am rather introvert and quite confcall - how did you learn to boost your confidence? Culturally I come from a region where self promotion is seen negatively. You always down-play.
Which one should i @ join Legato Societe generale Altimetrik Epam Tech :- big data engineer Location:-Bangalore Salary :- all most same (socgen gives bit higher )
Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting. I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Moral of the post: there is none, I just want to brag about how happy I am now 😂
Is there a clause I can include in the lease to prepare for a tenant that stops paying and tries to claim I can’t evict them due to covid? Not saying I’m expecting it, but a cousin had a bad experience recently and I don’t want to repeat the mistake
