Heading into benefits open enrollment and beginning to receive current provider renewal percentage increases (medical and dental) as well as market offers from other providers. Curious what other employers have experienced and hoping to receive successful negotiating techniques. My company is too small to receive claims experience data from the provider. What % increase did you see for a small to mid size company?
Does anyone know someone who was placed on a pip who then found a way to get on medical leave so could apply to jobs while still employed? (Idea being that you greatly extend your opportunity to look for jobs while still being able to say you’re at current firm. Example: Person gets 1 month pip, gets medical leave, then is able to look for new jobs for many months rather than 1 month. If you don’t know anyone, any opinions on how this could work?

Feeling sick from anxiety this morning. Knowing I have to leave today and tough week ahead looming
I'm sick of all my people leaving after 2-3 years. I'm great. 8.5 hour days, unlimited PTO, and we have a fire every other month at most. Remote. Pay is competitive and errs on high. Progression is transparent. There's a focus on education and growth. So what the fuck is next? I'm thinking 4 day work weeks. Let's see em get poached by companies with 5 day work weeks, amirite? Vote now on whether I'll get my retention closer to 3-4 years with this. Likes for agree, lols for nooooopes.
My puppy is sick 😭
Skin advice: Not trying to get too medical here. But, I’ve been having bacne (and related pigmentation) on upper back and upper arms. Doctors have called it Keratosis Pilaris. I’ve tried multiple things but nothing REALLY seems to work. Any tips / suggestions?
Who had the bright idea of open offices? Anyone else sick of other people phones calls and messy desks? It's counter collaborative imo
(also posted on singles bowl but want ladies opinion) I slept over at my boyfriend's apartment for the first time and found a stash of Viagra and other ED medicines in his cabinet. We have only started dating recently and his "performance" has been hit/miss. Very confused on how to approach it with him. Should I even be with him or not? I am feeling like he lied to me about his medical condition and could have brought it when I had explicitly asked him about this.
Desi guys look for american born desi girls or white girls for their American adventures or sought of to fulfill their American fantasies but when it comes to settling down, they go back to the age old "my parents want me to choose a girl from India" BS. Sick of it!
Has anyone taken short term disability leave to prolong their paid leave following pregnancy at their employer?
Sick for the first time in 2 years because I spent time with extended family and their kids. What is it about kids constantly being sick?? I spend 2 days around toddlers and my immune system takes a vacation.
I have an employee who is very sick with COVID (on life support in the ICU). I would like to do something to support his wife; they have 2 young kids & she’s expecting; I’m sure the stress on her is exhausting. Any suggestions for what would be helpful and appreciated? This is more complicated because they were out of town & he was hospitalized out of state, so it is hard for us to get anything to them in person. Also, I’m concerned about his team members and would love ideas to support them
I tried to handle a mental health issue on my own, but failed and am at a breaking point. My work is clearly suffering, but I have no medical history to request FMLA or accomodation. What should I do? Request unpaid, unprotected leave? Get a psychiatrist and try to treat now while hoping to improve at work? Something else? Before you ask: taking a week off to recharge won't work. Self-harm isn't an issue beyond risk of failed self-medication.

Am I the only one that feels like I’d be able to build a stronger network of MBA folks going to a true college town? I’ve always been under the impression that smaller towns force people to be closer (ex: attending Darden in CVille vs. going to Columbia in NYC)

Humble question: How do you know you're good enough? I'm a high performer at a local boutique firm in South Africa, looking to apply internationally at MBB/Big 4/Tier 2 (recruitment esp. international is a separate discussion). Since I've only ever been with one firm, I don't have a yardstick to compare myself to. I'm concerned about whether I match up with my peers at other firms. Any advice, experience or 2c on the above is appreciated.
Hello all, might seem a little silly to ask - but if a company proposes a "meeting" as a reply to a job request, will that mean it's an interview itself?
I am SO tired of hearing “you’re on mute”. How have people not figured out how to effectively use zoom/teams/etc yet. 🤦♀️😭
Hi Fishes! All help appreciated I received an offer from my dream co. - McKinsey. Have another discussion with HR for comp. & joining details, once I accept the offer. I want to join after 4 months (2m of notice period at Deloitte & 2m I want for personal self). How do I take that up? How much deferral of joining is normal? Suggest some reasons (something that sounds genuine | Honestly want to sit home for 2 months and relax, but not sure if HR will accept it) Share experiences if anyone?
