401k Offer

We received a comment on one of the 401k postings over night from someone who has assisted various ex-Hellerites in the past with handling their 401k and other retirement accounts.

While, as with the recruiter listings, this is not an endorsement of any one company or person and the services they offer, it is a way of making the information available so that Heller support staff can make informed decisions.

That said, there is now a Benefits page which will list various links that might be helpful.

And here is the full context of Chris Hereford’s comment:

“Retirement accounts and benefits can seem intimidating, but in times of transition it is a great opportunity to evaluate your options. If anyone has questions about 401k plans, profit sharing plans, ect. please feel free to give me a call or send me an email. My partner and I are financial advisors for a major Wall Street firm and we specialize in helping individuals with their retirement accounts. We have worked with many people from Heller in the past and would be glad to answer any questions you may have.”

    Comrades, it is not difficult to plan your finances by yourself. Vanguard offers free advice. (As do most financial firms). There’s a lot of good educational material free on the internet. Check out the “personal finance” section in your bookstore. You don’t have to pay a “Financial Advisor” to map out your money. And if you do, you’re still going to be in the dark. Invest a little time in self-education and (1) avoid paying “Financial Advisor” fees and (2) let YOU be in control of your own finances. Empower yourself! (And don’t be fooled by the stealth advertisement above.)

- Don't be a dill weed.

- Treat other people the way you want to be treated.

- Ladies and children first.

- This is a rescue, not a bitch session.

- Help don't harm.

- Save the snarks for the attorneys and Above The Law.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
