I did. Took 8 weeks, fully paid from short term disability. My team handled work, and I was fine getting back into things. No impact as far as work. It was all there when I got back.

Yes, not an issue. Generally people are very supportive.

People are supportive. So is leadership. Shouldn't be an issue

I did! 3 months! 100% salary. Super easy. Highly recommend.

Perfect timing. Just went to the surgeon today who said no travel for a month. Thanks y'all!

Life / Career Advice: I applied to medical school since my MCAT score was set to expire, ended up getting into 1 program. I also have an opp to join a well funded/well established Healthtech Startup (6 figure salary w/ equity + benefits) as a BD professional. I enjoy the business side of things and am unsure if I would end up practicing Medicine (medicine is also a long arduous path). At the same time, having an MD holds a lot of clout/authority in HC. Any thoughts on what I should do?

My SA is clearly taking credit for all my work. He pushes all his slides onto me and then says it’s better for me to be working when he gets facetime with seniors. The other week, I was feeling nauseous and asked for a break and he denied saying workload was too high. Then, when I filed for a sick leave, he blamed me saying that seniors think he’s overworking associates and I’m making him look bad. I’m new to consulting so really don’t want to leave a bad impression. But how do I tackle this?

Returned from sick leave and found out from other people at the office I totally messed up on a project that I worked on prior to sick leave. Now that my reputation has been ruined and facing an upcoming negative performance review. No one at the office stood up for me despite of positive work done prior to COVID or wants to hear what I have to say. I m bothered by this gaslighting practice both professionally and personally. I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.

I was offered a position at Deloitte for ~26k more than I’m making currently, but they told me that in 2.5 years when the contract is over I will be out of a job. Obviously I’ll be able to network within those two years and probably find something more permanent, so it’s very similar to gig work at BAH. I also just started a new project at BAH last month so I feel uneasy leaving after a month. Can someone at Deloitte give me more insight about PDM work at the company?
