I was 3 years ago, I went on a stress leave, found a job, came back, gave my resignation and left!

uplifting

Thought about this myself. I weighed not doing it since not having a paycheck will also not help elevate my mental health. Stressed > broke and stressed.

Go on LOA before you quit with nothing lined up

Dont let yourself get fully burnt out. It will take very long to come back from that. Take care of yourself!

I did! Best decision I ever made. If you have the financial means just do it. I considered taking an LOA but was really just so done w the company and didn't want to be tied to it anymore

I definitely have the liquid funds to support myself for a bit, but the insurance thing would be an issue :/ I’m just working my network hard at this point and hoping to get through the holidays

Are there any Partner firms that will not be requiring vaccination for employment? Family has history of genetic heart disease issues and several family members are experiencing adverse health complications following vaccination. Deloitte implemented mandatory vaccination requirement for return to office with no health exemption mention. Not here to debate the merits of the vaccine, solely interested in whether this is expected to be a de-facto Partner firm requirement across the board soon.

EY High Deductible Health Plan vs Open Access Select (don’t have EY bowl access yet) I just started at the firm and am trying to pick my healthcare. I don’t really ever go to the Dr so I’m thinking of getting the High Deductible plan. My question is, what does it mean that it’s not a “national network (Is this a national network?: No)” but it’s “network coverage: see any licensed doctor”? Those seem to contradict. Also HSA vs FSA, as a healthy 26yo, which is right for me (High D only has HSA)

As a heads up. If any of you are interviewing at Facebook and were planning to leverage their offer to negotiate at another company, they will recall their emails to you with any offer information as soon as they think it’s a no. I told them I was not interested 2 hours ago because it was an exploding offer (even though I haven’t finished negotiating my other offers), and the email is already gone. Thankfully I took a screenshot as soon as I got it.
