Has there ever been an effort to organize/unionize adworkers the way we see with the Writer's Guild? There are a lot more people in this business than in entertainment. Healthcare access?
I m thinking of buying term life insurance. Can you renew the policy after 10 years, 20 years once it is lapsed and you r still alive?
Insurance Defense Associates: Why not unionize? A lot of people are complaining about very low salaries and high billable requirements. This is a product of low rates and stringent billing requirements imposed by insurance carriers. Unionization at a few large shops like Wilson Elser and Lewis Brisbois can single-handedly turn the entire ID industry around. A rising tide lifts all boats.
Deloitte opportunity... so I’m looking at transitioning to Deloitte and have a couple roles on the table which are Healthcare Systems Engineering Manager and Healthcare Payer Core Admin Manager.

Hi 🙋🏼♀️ Accenture moms. Re healthcare benefits: did you select HDHP or PPO plan and why? I’ve been on the HDHP plan for the last few years, which has worked well as I almost never see a doctor, but we’re planning to get pregnant next year and I’m reevaluating my options. How many prenatal apts should I expect? Is PPO better for this? Anything you wish you had known about being pregnant with ACN health benefits?
Hows GE healthcare for a business analyst? In terms of wb, job security and work environment?
What would you do if you were me? Late 30s. Burned out. 1.4M invested in index funds (75% in in post tax accounts). 4k/month fixed housing expense. Untilites/insurance/subscriptions at 1k/month. After that it's food, clothing, and one-off expenses. Dual income family of 4. Monthly burn rate gets up to 9k when we're not paying attention so I'm not traditional FIRE yet. Coasting options? Sabbatical? A few more years in the salt mines? Rental properties or other time suck investments?

Can't find the Cartier ring my husband got me for our 10th anniversary - that I forgot to add to our insurance. FML
I had my 9 week scan today and everything went well - we saw the baby and heard the heartbeat. The doctor asked me to come in next week for the myriad prenatal blood test - is this common or is this because of my high bmi and PCOS? I checked with my insurance and looks like they won't cover it. Happy to hear from anyone else who has had this test done!

Final round interview at FAANG. One of the interviewers was the one I interviewed with during my 1st round interview. Is this common? Does this help me or hurt me in anyway?
PHR or SHRM-CP?
Apartment above mine seems to have invested in a new sound system… what to do about floor and walls vibrating from bass? Went up to talk and they were extremely combative saying “it’s my home and I’ll do what I want”. Involve the landlord? Non-emergency police line? Hard to WFH like this
What’s the best WFH desk chair?

How do you find women mentors when there aren’t any senior ones at your office? I see great benefits in having a professional mentor and wish I had one to learn from and ask advice to. I’ve looked at organizations that connect industry professionals, but don’t know how well these work.
I am married for 4 years and my wife is pregnant in her 2nd trimester. As much we love each other, We always had our share of fights and arguments over one thing or the other since the very first year of marriage but we somehow sailed through. Now when she is pregnant our arguments have now almost doubled. Since she is pregnant I am always the one who is apologizing and trying to be the nice guy though internally my soul is really pissed off and I feel like not to be with her. I want to tell h
