My firm has a reduced hours policy, and I know people who have negotiated reduced hours after having kids. I do not have kids yet (we recently started trying), but I’m seriously considering asking for a reduced hours arrangement (partly for future kids, but partly for sustainability of the career, mental health, physical health, etc.). The written policy doesn’t require it, but do I have to give a “reason” when asking for reduced hours? Anyone have experience with this?
Since partners no longer get subsidized health care coverage from their firms, do any partners purchase health care through the aca marketplace exchange? Even without a premium tax credit from the exchange, it would have to be cheaper than paying full price via the firm’s plan unsubsidized. I heard that some get coverage thru a spouse’s plan, but what if the spouse’s family plan from their employer is really bad? Curious to hear about options out there.

Thoughts on Indexed Universal Life Insurance as an investment vehicle? I hear the pros and cons from the sellers of this, whom I understand gain heavy commissions. But wanted to get thoughts from investors and if this isn't a good vehicle, what alternative investment vehicles do you suggest (outside of stocks, Roth, 401k, and real estate)? Looking to diversify my portfolio. I'm 43, married, income 600k combined, and we have 2 properties worth 3m and investment accounts worth ~2-3m. Thanks!

Does anyone have any thoughts about a company terminating an employee within the HR team for testing positive for COVID 19 and further accusing the said employee of being the one that created the entire team to become infected by not answering the health screening questions accurately? The week prior to employee being tested the entire team was in the office sick. The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.

I am looking for some advice or opinions to apply for consulting jobs right now. I currently work at a mid-sized/regional firm, but plan move to a different city later this year. I have ~4 yr xp working on system implementations, IT policies/controls, and BPO, but my undergrad GPA wasn't the best (I did become a CPA and CISA though). Should I try to apply to big 3/big 4? Stay mid-sized? Get an MBA or Masters? Move and pray? Thanks in advanced for any comments!

Have you guys noticed a difference in reactions when asking for a raise from men/women supervisors? I feel like the women supervisors that I’ve asked get really uncomfortable and look at me like I’m asking for a lot, whereas the men at least are a bit more composed in their reaction and almost expect it. I don’t know though as I only have 2 situations to go by. any thoughts? Curious to know others’ experience
