Does anyone know what PwC's health benefits are like? I am onboarding and the packet just says it covers up to 75% of a gym membership or something like that. I'll be in the NYC office too if that affects anything
Having an off day already and wondering how so many people seem to be able to keep it all together so easily. I have friends and family that just handle everything with such grace and never seem to drop the ball or have to scramble to find time or energy to put into all of their priorities/obligations. Why is it so hard for me to even remember to schedule regular maintenance things for house/car/health, etc.? Maybe this career is just draining my cognitive capacity. I'm so tired.

Been severely struggling with depression and anxiety lately. Obviously this job is one big reason why. I opened up to the partner a few months back about it when I started missing random days when I couldn’t get out of bed. Maybe 2/3 days over the last 4 months total. This week he sat me down and told me he is worried about my mental health causing me to be a “liability” to the firm. I can’t stop thinking about this and don’t know how to turn it around.

Speaking of boutique firms. What's the name of the trendy millennial one with crazy health benefits that was ranked #1 recently for fun and WLB? I think it was in PA and did primarily healthcare...
Interesting read about folks who won’t take vaccines. Lots of different rationales, but they all boil down to people thinking they’re smarter than experts (a common problem in modern America) and a general “you can’t tell me what to do” attitude. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/05/the-people-who-wont-get-the-vaccine/618765/

Looking to buy some disability insurance but since our 'duties' as advisors include sitting in a chair, looking at the computer screen, talking on the phone, how hard is it for us to qualify for DI?
Has anyone ever taken a short term leave of absence to deal with mental health issues relating to being overloaded and overwhelmed with work? I’m at my breaking point with no end in sight of things slowing down. If I tell the COO, will this affect my career at the firm by doing this? Is there another option?
How do you opt out of health insurance at EY?
Helping a friend navigate through severe mental health issues, and it’s starting to take a toll on me now - not even that it’s exhausting, but it’s triggering my own past memories of trauma and intrusive thoughts. I am in a much better place in life now thankfully, but the thought that I may slip/relapse again keeps nagging at me, even though I am determined not to let that happen. Any advice from people who may have been in a similar situation?
I just started at a new job and noticed that whenever I go to start work, my blood pressure spikes (from 120/80 to 150/110) along with my pulse (from 80 to 110). I like what I do but it’s hard to ignore the affect on my health. What should I do, aside from meditation and deep breathing (which I’m doing)?
Anyone feel like they are conditioned to always try harder, do better, etc? I'm having such a hard time dialing it back (I want to do this for my own mental health). I want to be okay with just being average, but it's like I'm working against myself...I don't know if it's just a consulting thing, but it's taking A LOT of effort, and I hate feeling like I'm letting ppl down, but ppl let me down all the time lol.
Struggling hard to land a new job. Go through many interviews and then end up running into a hitch like “the team likes you, but still waiting on some shoes to fall”. Tell me I’m not the only one
I'll be renovating my house (gut all existing bathrooms and kitchen, extend house to make room for an extra bathroom). It's currently my primary residence but I likely have to move in early 2022 to another city where I also own a house and then I plan to rent my current residence via Airbnb. What should I consider from a tax perspective? For example, if my current residence becomes an investment property before or when I renovate, does the renovation count as a tax deductible expense?
I am having 5+ years of experience in backend development and I have cleared all technical rounds of EY for SDE 2 role. Tomorrow, I am going to have an HR round for a salary discussion. can anyone suggest the expected salary for the same profile, what should I ask HR about related to compensation?

Does Accenture usually reject via email? Finished the entire interview process and they reached out to schedule a call. Was curious to know if I should expect and offer or possible rejection.
Will Big 4 let you stay as SM if you don’t want to make partner but are still hitting SM targets? Once you take the promotion BS and partner-promotion-chasing out of the equation SM is quite fun!
How do I reach more BIPOC designers? Let me start off by saying I identify as Latinx and I am not trying to tokenize anyone or to discriminate against white candidates. I’m looking to add to our design team and I’ve been really trying to add diversity to our company. Anytime we put out the word we’re looking for more senior design roles the majority of candidates are white males. I don’t want to shut talent out, I just want to make sure our opportunities are seen.
