I received an MD offer with Deloitte. When I got the verbal, it was presented as a base number but when I had more detailed call, I found out that about $30k of that is forced into the profit sharing plan annually. Has anyone else been surprised by this and did it affect how you negotiated?


I’m interviewing at Google’s Treasury team. The role would be as a rates analyst managing their portfolio - primarily cash and short duration fixed income products (100bn aum). TC: ~150k, not sure of breakdown.

I currently work as a quant/middle office at a very well reputed mutual fund, but this is not a market facing role. TC: 125k, but they have a very generous profit sharing plan that contributes 25% of my pay to retirement accts if I stay for 6 years, so ~160k?

Any thoughts?


Can someone from bcg explain the profit sharing plan in lieu of a 401k match? How much do you actually get per year


I left my old firm a few months ago and I just received a contribution to my old 401k and I believe it’s coming from a profit sharing plan that I was in. Am I able to rollover the full amount to my current 401k? Vanguard says it’s 25% vested so I don’t think I can


Can you all shed light on management consulting firms that have a profit sharing plan included with your salary/bonuses? Would those be quarterly bonuses usually?


Is anyone here taking part in their firm’s profit sharing plan? Any advice on what makes the plan good or bad? Pros/cons? I max out my HSA and 401k already.

Hi fishes,

I have received my first offer letter which they wanted me to accept by e- signing it and after i did that theh have sent out form 11 and other documents to be filled in 2 days.
I have never filled form 11 and other personal details untill 1 week before my joining date.

My joining date would be after my notice period which is usually 2 months.
Should I share the person details and form 11 they asked for now itself?
Will it be a problem if i don't wish to join the company later


Agree or disagree?

I found out night before last that my middle through high school sweetheart passed away in a freak accident. We have not spoken in 20 years but I remained in touch with his family and best friend. He said keeping in touch hurt too much. I'm happily married with a 2 beautiful kids. But I'm on an island of grief. I'm feeling so emotional and memories are flooding back. He lived with my family too when his mom lost her home. I feel so guilty grieving because I feel like I don't deserve too.
