Hey guys, parents live in Dxb and I’m concerned they don’t have health insurance. The number an insurance agent quoted my Dad seems ridiculously high.. any recommendations on Health Insurance options in Dxb for aged folks with pre-existing conditions?

not sure what # you were quoted but I know a couple (both under 40) who pays 25K AED / year for a decent coverage plan. I can imagine that a premium for an old couple with pre-existing conditions could be much higher. Ask if you can get your parents on your employer's plan (and pay for the premium out of pockets). Always much cheaper that way than paying as an individual. Doubt you can, but worth asking.

Trying to see what my options are.

I wish people would think clearly and hard about having children beforehand. Working as a school counselor and a youth therapist, so much trauma starts early simply because parents don't know any better or do what they were taught. It's tough when it isn't abuse or neglect, but it's still having a negative impact on the child's life. Should I recommend family therapy? Is it overstepping to recommend the parent go to private therapy as well?

I have an in-house offer. $200k base, 25% target bonus and 25% equity grant. I am currently a rising third year in biglaw.

My recruiter claims that if I take the in-house position, she’d expect that in 3-4 years my base salary would increase to the mid to high 200s, with target bonus and equity each increasing to 40-50% of base.

Is this realistic or is she blowing smoke?

As background, this offer is at a young but rapidly growing PE firm in TX.
