New manager for a team. 1 person is not pulling their weight (is assigned less because he is also new, but still misses deadlines, regularly misses the mark on prioritizing and communicating, slows down other work streams by publicly asking questions and giving feedback that isn’t requested). However, he has a MAJOR outside work distraction that is understandable (think immediate-family potentially life-altering health issue). Any advice on how to sensitively bring up that he’s not (cont)
Attempting to renter the workforce after a 2 year hiatus due to health issues followed by the pandemic. During this time off I had minor success running a small business, but not enough to pay the bills. I have 3 YOE, 1.5 as a Loan Officer, and 1.5 as a consultant within compliance and Fintech. Please let me know of any fully remote positions, or hybrid positions based out of Chicago or Milwaukee. I live in Dubuque IA, so for in office work it would have to be in Dubuque. TIA!
This may be a dumb question, but what happens if you have your own employer provided health insurance/ medical coverage, and are still on your parents’ coverage? Which becomes your primary?
Deloitte folks - how does our basic vision coverage work outside of the plan you pay for. Getting an eye exam at warby Parker which takes no insurance but can get reimbursed possibly.
Just bought the 23 and Me health and ancestry. Anyone ever get their results and see something that shocked them?
My wife and I just had a baby boy and are getting a lot of pressure from her family to get him circumcised. Not for religious reasons but for social ones, they are worried he wouldn’t fit in. I am opposed to doing this our pediatrician said there was no appreciable health benefit and that today it is about 50/50 circumcised vs not in the US (much lower circumcision rates elsewhere) Is there something I am missing here?
Anyone aware of any open consulting opportunities at BCG within healthcare? Got 5+ YOE within healthcare

can you appeal a prescription insurance claim? I was not told it would cost me over 2k just for 90 pilIs I do not need (theyre anti inflammatory meds, instruction says "take as needed")
Let me get this straight. So, Jeep decides to spend millions on a cutdown from their SB spot just to say “stay in” instead of actively help health services and the Americans who lost their jobs.
I was just speaking with a couple of coworkers who told me they see doctors who don’t take insurance. Why would anyone do that? Is this just a flex?
I had an eye appointment in June due to an issue with my eyes. When I called to make the appointment, they told me they would bill xx code, and insurance will cover a certain amount and I will have to cover $100. I confirmed with my insurance before the appointment. After the appointment, I received a bill with the incorrect code billed (similar code description), and I have to pay $180. I went to a different doctor in August because I still had the eye issue, and they billed the correct code..

Anyone up for case interview practice?
*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??

Is there a path from FDD that leads to a realistic WLB? I want to start a family someday, but just don’t see how it’s possible to be a good spouse or parent with the time demands of this career. 3yrs of work experience if that matters.
The unsatisfactory crunch of a stapler failing to punch through paper is the bane of my existence

And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station

I am completing Noogler period this month. I joined in January with 3-4 years of experience and Google offered me L3 Level and despite having other offers in hand, Google didn’t negotiate. And since Google was my dream company, I joined Google thinking I’ll ask for promotion in one year and do the hardwork. Till now I wasn’t having any problem. But now it starts mentally for me. So, I referred one of my friend from my same batch of college and previous organisation. contd. in comments!
