Do any firms offer medical insurance benefits that cover IVF, freezing eggs, or surrogate assistance?

This kind of benefit typically has a max lifetime benefit of like $50k. I wouldn’t advise picking a firm based on that benefit alone.

I think it is a good reason to pass on an offer. A surprising number of people I know who waited to have kids have had to go through IVF. My old firm, which was a Texas firm and did not provide great benefits in general and is loosing associates, only paid 20k

Yes! A bunch of firms have pretty substantial fertility benefits, but it varies quite a bit. There’s a spreadsheet comparing the benefits somewhere. I’ll see if I can find it.

Hi everyone! I'm looking to emerge into the IT tech field and have recently completed the CompTIA A+ as well as Okta and Google certifications. I currently work in customer service and utilize a lot of tech and SaaS tools but other then training for the certifications I have very little experience as an IT administrator. I just landed an interview with a San Francisco based tech company as an IT engineer, and I'm looking for any interview advice and salary suggestions if I'm asked? Thanks!

I had an interview last week for a Jr CW job. All went well it seemed. The CCO’s exact closing words were “You’re gonna have a great career. Your ideas are good”. Additionally, a CD there I contacted on LinkedIn said the CCO liked my book. But he ended by telling me they’re still getting things sorted out and to follow up this week. Don’t know if this is a bad sign I won’t get it or if I’m just being insanely impatient and unrealistic.

I feel annoyed/triggered whenever my colleagues make reference to “being late”/ “turning camera off”/ “on mute because of” their children - whether that is dropping them off at daycare or at a doctors appointment. This has happened more because of the remote working environment. Why can’t people just make general comments and not bring their children into every excuse every time? Same as why I don’t go about explaining why I am off camera / dialed in late etc because of a fertility appointment.
