Is working at Goldman Sachs worth it? I’ve heard there’s no WLB and I’m hesitant on taking an offer. The pay increase is great about 20k more then I’m making but not worth sacrificing my mental health, time, driving distance and schedule if it will be too demanding in the HCM department. I’m also worried because I’m fresh out of school and though I know I have a good background (bachelors) I know I’m not as qualified as others that have worked there. I’m worried they just need people.
Maxed out Roth IRA contributions when I wasn't eligible for 2021 (got a salary bump mid year). Do I need to recharacterize? It's a very small account that's been open for only two years. That's the only IRA account I own. Do I need to open a traditional IRA and roll over 6k + realized gains into that account and keep the Roth IRA. So confused how this works and got conflicting information from Merrill.

Any tips for negotiation?
So strange, I’ve been stuck at 199 ‘smart’ points for a few days. I woke up this morning and it still hadn’t advanced to 200. Wondering which of you hasn’t chipped in yet? Total BS move if you ask me.

Did anyone see the post in the Work-Life bowl posted by the analyst? Saying that he(26M) was scared to be judged at corporate events for his gfs(19F!!!) hair color & tattoos? If you didn’t, please check out the comments. And then remember that these are men in the financial industry, that could very well be your coworkers. The grooming. The objectification. I am disgusted, but not surprised.

culture of india is more or less similar. I have lived in various parts of india & I can say with full confidence that there is absolutely no difference in living standards , social values etc. for a middle class family living in lucknow or Patna or bengal or gujrat or maharashtra or karnataka or tamil nadu .
Wife beating is not common in Bengal, so is Dowry. These things are only limited to a certain section of the society. Anyone who is educated will despise the act. Of course there are exceptions and they get what they deserve.
South Indian folks are way more conservative than anyone I have seen or met. Even the rich/ well educated ones have, so I am not surprised here.
SPM 1 - South Indians are always honest and don’t tell lies during surveys. It’s a well known fact that north India is infamous for chauvinism, rape culture and religious intolerance.
What was the sample for this? Any links to how the survey was conducted?
Maybe it shows where the beating is more prevalent? 😃🤓
MP & UP 👀 👀 👀
Ok my Telugu people…
I believe they missed the a word in the header… percent of women who believe wife beating “husband” is justified…
