Question: The company that you are working for offers cloud managed services and has been approached by a potential client. What are some areas (or red flags) you would consider before responding to their RFP? ( I started putting together a response but would love to get your insights) Answer: 1) Understanding of current annual spending vs spending if they adopted our cloud services 2) Clients expected growth rate 3) Regulatory requirements depending on industry (medical, fed etc)
What do you do when you legitimately have run out of PTO because you’re sick a lot? I take prescribed medication that weakens my immune system but don’t want to explain that if I can avoid it.
Hello All, I have a question about Ey Health insurance. My MIL is sick and now admitted in hospital. I had taken second set parental insurance for her. Will they be covering all the hospital expenses. Is there any exclusions. Can someone help me on this Thanks
FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴
How many people have gotten sick of accounting and switched to something different like resource management? How was the experience?
Lol my firm halted all sales travel but continued client travel. Just waiting for someone to get sick so I can sleep in my own bed for more than 8 nights a month
Finally emailed HR about potentially taking short-term disability or an LOA. Feeling like shit rn. I'll try to keep this updated regarding the process.
I'm so sick of this industry. I got into Finance because I felt I had something to prove to other students around me... that I could make it. 24 y/o and I can no longer care what others think.

We just got our oath ceremony scheduled. The appointment letter says “no guests permitted” except for anyone helping with disability. We have a toddler, and no option for babysitter since we have no family here and everything is still closed. Any idea if a dependent minor can accompany us? Tried calling them and haven’t been able to reach a person to speak to yet.
10w 🤰🏻, traveling at the moment and prenatal vitamins are really making me sick. I throw up whenever I take them, but that’s my only source of folic acid. Is it risky to not take them?
Recently lateralled to a new firm and I have mild “PTSD” from my old firm 😶 everything from the way docs are saved on the system, file naming, email writing style, team conventions etc - I keep thinking any small mistake would get me yelled at / be at the receiving end of snarky or passive aggressive emails but people at my new firm are so lovely and far from that. I’m trying really hard to move past this and my new colleagues are probably getting sick of my questions 😂 Anyone else can relate?

I'm sick of the generalist track... what are the options to do something else but still stay a "first class citizen" of the McK community?
Hi all, Need your advice. One of our worker’s wife is fighting cancer. We know that he needs to take care of her and work the same time to cover medical bills. So we decided to collect money for him. Should I do it secretly and only let him know after I’m done collecting money or should I get his permission first? I need to figure out which way would be less uncomfortable for him. Thanks!
Can anybody suggest any books or resources to get smart on medical device marketing and/or medical device manufacturing?
Is it okay to tell your boss you aren’t feeling well and need to take a sick day because of medication side effects? We are going into the office later in the week and I don’t want her to think I have something contagious. Started new meds and the side effects are intense today so I’m just off my game and need to log off, but not sure if that’s inappropriate or TMI.

Hi everyone, I hope you are well. I live in London, UK. I am looking to change career and move into Data Science. I achieved several Microsoft certifications including the "Data Analyst Associate".

How hard is the CFE exam? Worth the price?
For those of you who had to go through egg freezing but didn’t have insurance cover your medicines (except lupron which is usually covered), which discounts did you apply to the other three drugs to minimize the cost? ~7k for injections is so much...
Other struggling to find work? I graduated law school in 2018 and have had such a tough time. I started out at a boutique firm, but was laid off in Oct 2019 due to a restructuring decision. After months of searching, I finally landed another position at a boutique firm only to get laid off again one month later due to the pandemic. I look for work daily and have had a handful of interviews, but nothing has stuck. It’s difficult to handle the rejection and I just don’t know what to do anymore...

Kind of embarrassed to ask this, but how does one ask for a sign on bonus? I’ve never asked for one but I always hear about them. At what stage do you ask and how do you phrase it? I’m usually really bad at talking about/negotiating pay and it’s something I’m trying to work on when I eventually switch firms.
Is it generally recommended that one does not roll over a 401k into a tIRA because it complicates the ability to backdoor Roth?

Are there women here that have a significantly larger income than their male partner/ spouse? My husband used to make a little more money 10 years ago when we first met (when we were both making under 60k). Then I started climbing a fast track career ladder and now make a total comp of close to 300k and he is still under 80k... (which is totally fine with me btw). But I have noticed that this has caused a lot of serious issues for our relationship. any advice?

Maybe I'm too much of a economist/ accountant but I don't believe the wage gap in the US is accurate. I believe it has more to do with career choices and the % of women who stop working to raise a fam
SO exhausting having Trumpie parents. Mom asked about my friend with COVID: “is she hospitalized? Or dead?” And then got upset with ME when I said the questions were insensitive.
