Everyone is scared to accept a new job offer now, why? Is it true you have to be employed with the SAME employer for 6 months to get benefits if laid off? Can't find online, help!
Creating a company and going the self funded route. Is it silly for me to cut tax advantage account contributions (e.g., 401k) to gain cash on hand? - even if I lose firm contributions.
Want a better car, how much can I spend? 500 HHI, all expenses 10k a month including 3.5k mortgage, maxed out 401k, 529, and even fund after market investments. Stayed simple and have only 1 car, a small hatchback (gti) and have 1 son is sprouting and is heading towards 6 ft at 14. Want to upgrade but never bought anything fancy. Am I allowed? 😩

Is 50% commission a good “salary”? Just received an offer with the following details: - 50% commission. Stepwise increase by 5% for every $5k per month (e.g., 50% of first $5k, 55% of next $5k, etc) (Resets every month) - treated as independent contractor - no health insurance, no 401k - no hour requirement, WFH option, flexible hours - they cover bar dues, CLEs I feel like 50% is very high. Obviously being an independent contractor costs me a bit more, but does this look like a decent deal?
While the law requires it, it seems that there’s no mandatory lunch for being a nurse or other healthcare provider. What's your experience?
How do you get your toddler to adjust to new nanny/au pair, especially if you are home with another kid or working? Our 2.5 year old loved our last au pair but always asked to be with me instead. I’ve been home with him now for a few months and new au pair comes in two weeks. I’ll still be on maternity leave till August so I’ll be home with him and infant and au pair…. Just trying to figure out how best to handle this without stressing him too much.

New grad here! Do you recommend enrolling in FSA? I like the idea but worried that there may be complications involved with the process of using FSA for reimbursement. What are your experiences with it, and anything troublesome that I should be aware of? Could I change the amount any time like the commuter program or is it more based upon new hire/qualifying event?
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)

Considering an expert role in healthcare in mid Atlantic region at McKinsey. Any thoughts about culture, wlb, tc, etc? Have read through a bunch of older threads. Opinion seems mixed. Negatives mentioned include more intense work hours than integrative track, second class citizen, slower career progression, lower pay than integrative, harder to get staffed on engagements, poor integration into teams, and subpar exit opportunities. Also read this is changing. Would appreciate recent thoughts. 🙏
