Health Advances interview coming up - would love insights into the culture and trends in project work! TIA!
Pardon my rage - Just got a call from a partner, announcing that billable hours will increase to 45-50 hrs/wk, and under no circumstances may asso bill below 40 hrs. My practice group is insurance coverage/coverage lit, and as a 3rd year asso, I get paid at $92k (a $2k increase from last year). When the work gets slow, I had to chase diff. partners, begging for work, and I still can’t meet the hours. Went to T20 law school, did comm lit before ending up in this sweatshop, and will def. leave!
For those of you who got furloughed, did they ask you to sign a termination letter? Mine is asking us to sign that with a shitty severance and trying to mask it as a furlough “trying to get us back”..
What’s it looking like at Twitter right now? Hiring freezes ? Layoffs? Are things goood?👀
Any advice? I’m working in healthcare in aesthetics and have been asked to sign a non-compete contract. Wondering if anyone is familiar with this and if it holds up.
So I recently accepted a position to become director at another healthcare organization in my area. I’ve been at my current job 4 years. Any suggestions on the resignation letter? I don’t want to share too much but I report to the head of my hospital and have mixed feelings on what to share.
Does anyone work at Blue Cross Blue Shield Association ? I'd like to apply for a regulatory policy role that's open and would appreciate a referral or help getting my application to a human!
Anyone that works at Anthem or United Health Group able to tell me how or what they’re looking for in a therapy reviewer. I’ve applied to numerous positions… and nothing. I’ve even kept ATS in mind but haven’t gotten much of a response.
II’m close to ready to go out on my own. The hardest part is leaving the perks of a firm: receptionist, assistant, CLE’s/insurance/bar dues/organizations all paid for, etc. Advice on overcoming that?
How does everyone feel about their Health Coverage?
Does it seem too expensive when you barely use your coverage?
Do you have a hard time finding facilities that accept your coverage?
Do you find it hard to trust Insurance Agents?
Accenture healthcare is aggressively recruiting - let me know if there’s any Payer consultants looking for a new gig.
One of my best friends of 15+ yrs just disclosed a lot of concerning things to me about her mental health over a phone call. I live far away and i’m not sure the best way to help. :( Any suggestions?
Social Justice - Remote?
I have a disability & am on immune suppressants. I know how fortunate I am to have a remote position for a respected medical corporation; It helps me keep myself protected and healthy.
While this feels insane - I would love to pivot to the social Justice, non-profit, or profit-for-purpose sectors. I have a deep gratitude for all the privilege that allows me to prioritize my health. I would love to lend my efforts towards making a difference.
Any advice or leads?
How do you get into healthcare consulting?

Hello, fish friends. Hope you’re having a relaxing weekend.
I’m a new community leader for this bowl, and I was wondering — is there anything you’d like to see more of here? Things you’d like to see less of? Anything I can do to help?
This bowl has helped me through my own mental health journey, and I hope it’s been beneficial to you, too.

I’m new to billable hours, I come from a litigation firm where we didn’t have any billing requirements. Now a few months in I’m being called out by my managing partner each month for not meeting the hours.
I set expectations that it will take me time to get the hang of things and I haven’t missed any deadlines reports or appearances. Additionally, my hours have been increasing month over month and last month I was only 5 hours under the minimum. I have only been here for 6 months. What to do?
For those of you with young children and a 2000 billable requirement, could you share what your typical daily schedule is like? Also do you have time to fit in exercise?

What would you recommend for a senior associate who has been passed over for partnership, but is more senior than most (say, 11-12 years in)? Whole career with solid top Amlaw/Vault firm, T20 law school, law review, top notch reviews from firm. I'm working with partners internally,touching my contacts, and doing a lot of resume/application work. My ideal and preferred move would be in house, but is some lateral firm move feasible given my level? I feel like I've aged out of law firms.
Let's pour one out for the junior associates who are going to be working diligence on the twitter acquisition and financing. We salute ye!
Time to admit that I hate billable hours because some days I just want to do a bare minimum four hours of work without having to make it up later and not for any high minded ideological reasons.
Hi! If a new firm asks you to start conflicts before any formal offer is extended, is that a sign that you are likely to get the job? Is it just to get the ball rolling? Does it mean nothing? Ty for the insight! (This may have already been asked but a quick search didn’t render my exact question).
