Who’s this employer?

It's not a consulting firm. Looks like a lot of dental plans don't do ortho work for adults, which is pretty frustrating

Set up an FSA and use pretax dollars. Prob have to wait until next year. But will prob benefit you the same

Most companies just did open enrollment, so if you didn’t sign up then you will likely need to wait until next year.

Take a vacation to Mexico, and get it done there

And you might get some free coke as prescription 🙂

Since then it has increased in value and also paid the premiums from the cash value. Today it shows $70k cash value. TIA

Hi, I'm currently with TCS. I have given technical interview with Infosys on 9th October and the very next day I got a mail to send documents. Since then I didn't receive any reply from them. How long does the process really take for one to get a call for HR discussion. It's been almost 10 days now. Similar situation happened with Accenture recently, they put me on hold for long and suddenly turned down the offer after HR discussion for which I'm really concerned now.

Hi Guys Joined TCS 2 yrs back as IT Analyst , previously worked in Infosys for 4 yrs , so total YOE is 6 yrs . But i want to do executive MBA ( 1 Year Full Time ) now , as i want to move to a managerial role .

Also how much salary will increase after i do TCS sponsored MBA ? Current CTC = 13 Lac
