At Deloitte we have a $1000 wellness subsidy which is fabulous. I wish it included more women-centered self care items, though. Such as facials, mani/pedis, waxing, eyelash extensions, brow treatments hair and skincare. I got a musical instrument, Oculus VR glasses and two new Apple Watches for me and the husband last year. I have $400 left and nothing qualifying to spend it on. First world problem, I know.

We can use ours for a lot of things like flights for vacation or pay for an all-inclusive resort. There's so many things you can spend it on that I don't feel frustrated about what it doesn't include

You’re right. This is very much a first world problem

We bought a new mattress with our subsidy - it only covered part of it, but that’s $1000 off on a brand new $$ mattress which has been a tremendous benefit to us, every day. Definitely longer lasting than something like a mani-pedi.

True.

You can get massages.
You can also get running shoes. And of course class passes for Yoga and all other kinds of things.

They don’t need to be 60 mins; you can do 90 mins.

Well, one thing is that you can't actually buy gifts for other people with your well being subsidy. I think when it starts dipping into beauty, we start to undermine the intent of the well being subsidy.

Theyve expanded the options a lot in the last few years. Put it in the talent survey or something. Im sure it'll eventually get there.

They allow video games - very male centric

Another reason I left that company

I’m assuming they meant video games and consoles like Wii or some system marketed for “fitness” focused games but I totally agree with you that it’s a BS regardless because the majority of the gaming market is men. I also left the company and I’m now adding this to one of my reasons why just so I can hate Deloitte more 😂😇

I don’t think those things should really count but one day any spa service might as they expand the options every year.

Also, this is one of my favorite things at Deloitte and I am constantly torn on what to spend it on because there are so many options so I am kinda surprised you can't find a way to spend. Do you like water sports, hiking, do you have a child you could buy a running stroller or child carry pack? I have bought so many awesome things to add to my gym and to carry my child around with me all bought by Deloitte.

D5, it's fine. We don't need to dig in on them.

You could probably propose these be added and I would not be shocked if they added them.

WOW a lot of hate on a post that seems like a rather lighthearted comment on a policy… Hang in there OP!

I appreciate the point of your post and agree with you. Wellness takes many forms and spa service self-care seems like an obvious next step but may not to others if they don’t already get this stuff done to feel the benefits.

I bought gardening supplies with mine (cute west elm planters for my apartment) which seems like much more of a stretch than what you are proposing.

Does anyone have guidance on timing job offers? Companies move at different paces in the interview process. I know it’s good to have competing offers for negotiating too. I want to avoid a situation where I get an offer from one company but they only give x amount of time for me to accept and I’m still waiting to hear back from another company. One way is to inform the companies I have an offer or am interviewing with another company to speed things up. Any other tips?
