Applying for MBA programs in Fall 2021. When I matriculate I’ll have 7 years of healthcare consulting experience. Will this give me a competitive advantage when I apply and will I be among the oldest students by far?
I’m trying to take leave due to mental health/ burnout. Has anyone been successful in getting approved for Short Term Disability and /or FMLA via a therapist/licensed counselor (LPC) or do they need to be a psychiatrist? Thank you I’m advance 👍
My wife sells insurance so I am sure she views me as a customer but I am curious how much life insurance you 30 and 40 somethings have out on yourself?
Does anyone here work for Silicon Valley Bank? They recently acquired Boston Private. I’m a candidate for a job at Boston Private. Wondering if SVB is planning layoffs in the near term at BP? Also, does anyone know the anticipated benefits to be rolled out from SVB as the parent company? Specifically interested in health insurance providers. Thanks in advance for any information!

Pulling an all-nighter tonight (23 hrs) after a whole week (last week too) of midnight/2am nights. Do I really need to go into work today or can I take a mental health day off? Do I need to ask?
Any fish here dealt with a lonely/toxic parent? I recently came to the realization that my mom is toxic (think guilt-tripping, saying mother-child bond is sacred, making comparisons, etc.) and has become very dependent of me, and as much as I want to be there I can only do so much since I have a family myself. She refuses to move to a nursing/retirement home, look for companionship, and seek professional help for tasks she needs done such as car maintenance, insurance inquiries, etc. (Cont’d)
Anyone have recommendations for foods that help with anti-inflammatory symptoms and/or gut health? Please don't say yogurt, I can't stand the texture.
Is there any healthcare analytics job that requires a top secret clearance? Like I want to get a TS but I have seen a lot of projects dont need a TS for healthcare.
It’s so disappointing that people still don’t pay equal attention or importance to mental and emotional health.
Does McCann Health have their own bowl ?
Trying to chart my next move and not sure what direction to go. All I know is I’m tired of being always “on” in a client-facing environment. Any podcasts, books, etc I can read for insight into more internal roles like biz ops, corporate dev/strategy, other?? 4 YOE total all in consulting. Currently a SC. Clients/work have been commercial healthcare implementation & public health strategy, risk, process imp etc.
SF 🐠: any suggestions for semi-regular weekend volunteering that would leverage a consulting skill set? Preferably healthcare orgs but no clinical background needed. Thanks!
There is a paralegal (not mine) in my firm that is making everyone miserable. She cries at her desk, complains about being overworked and is rude to the other paralegals, staff, and a couple of the attorneys. She is so disrespectful to me that I recently asked to work from home for a month (I am dealing with some other mental health issues and she is too much). My request was granted, and last Friday I was in the office to make sure several motions were filed properly. Continued in comment:
Does your company's health plan cover infertility treatment? If so, what is the lifetime cap if any? My company just implemented a cap—admittedly we were lucky before—but this new cap of $30k only covers ~$6k in medical expenses (another ~$23k in prescriptions) which wouldn't even get us through one IVF cycle (extract/implant once).
Anyone (high performer throughout their career) laid off for non-performance related reasons, have you seen a severe dent on your morale and mental health after the layoff? How are you coping with it?
I have to say, R/GA is probably by far the worst “agency” to work at. Their culture and core values as a company are close to zero. This agency is heavily sugar coated. Welcome to R/GJail.
Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!
FAAS or Audit? Salary & Exit opp?
I'm a broker dealer lawyer who was in house for a few years. My position is ending soon and all my offers just seem shitty less than 100K in nyc. I'm thinking about starting my own shop as I truly believe I can do much better than that. I just don't know how I would get clients to start. For background I have a few of my own businesses outside of law that I do on the side that make more than my offers.
Finishing internship soon and wondering what files I can keep and which I need to delete. What’s the best way to transfer personal files, etc, off company pc?
You have a male and female and they are the same level on a project. In my experience 90% of the time, why is the male always given the facilitator role?
Im considering joining LinkedIn - does anyone know if they have any restrictions on fertility benefits (ex// you have to be an employee for at least a year)? I’d rather not ask my recruiter/hiring mgr. Thanks!
Does anyone else hate the interviews that you think have gone well, but then you end up being ghosted? I thought I did well because the interviewer told me I would ‘fit right into the team and team culture’ and said ‘keep an eye on your email, we move quickly and you’ll probably hear about next steps in the next few days’. Makes me feel like I am terrible at reading situations (on top of being terrible at interviewing). I hate not knowing what I did wrong and what I should be fixing.
Having the last week off has really shown me the toll this client has taken on my life in 3 months. My last client, I would have been bummed to take a week off, this one... Dreading going back on Tues
For everyone asking where they should move to work. Here’s a list. San Francisco, LA and NYC all surprisingly made the cut. https://theurbandeveloper.com/articles/best-20-cities-to-work-in
Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say
Phone screen on Friday. Told them I had final rounds coming up and gave them free days of Monday - Thursday for interviews. Haven’t heard back yet. Should I reach out tomorrow if I don’t hear anythinn
