Can we not call it TrumpCare or ObamaCare and just call it the Affordable Care Act like it should have been from day one. Stop playing politics with healthcare. People die from this BS.
A friend opened up to me about her extra marital interest/dilemma surrounding that interest. She realizes her pattern due to some underlying issue she needs to resolve and is seeing a therapist, yet whenever we talk she goes into details related to this guy and about her dilemma. I have listened to her for 3 months and weighed in where I could, and I care about HER and her mental health. But if ask about her mental health she goes into stories about this dude. How do I establish my boundary? 🙏🏼
Hi Fishes, I have recently joined PwC SDC as an Associate 2. Wanted to know that is there any smartphone reimbursement or mobile phone program here. TIA!
Appreciate some help with evaluating two offers: 1.Non-FAANG big tech: 155k base + 15% bonus + 90k stock + 401k match 2. Late stage startup (expected to ipo in 2-3 years): 130k base + 160k stock. Both are very similar roles in a HCOL city. Is it worth to take a pay cut to bet for the IPO? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits.

Interested in a career in life sciences/health space. What are some potential career options? My background is business with some tech exposure as well. I’d be open to pursuing a masters if there are better opportunities available with post graduation.
I am looking to switch careers. I have been in my current career for nearly 20 years. I need a change. I have masters degree in instructional technology, health care administration, and English. I am working on trying to work my current skills into today's job market. That is more difficult than I anticipated. I guess I'm wondering if there really is anything out there to switch to? I feel lucky to have a job, but it is getting very depressing and difficult to get up for work.

Second year Consultant who came from a benefits broker. I feel like I am very much still learning the ropes of consulting. Was asked to help on a deck for proposal work for something I have no background/knowledge in. Told by the partner that I wouldn’t be creating content just story boarding and managing and organizing in the deck. The manager, familiar with the proposed solution, however seems to be annoyed with me that I didn’t create content. Not sure what to make of this?

What's the norm for consulting firms during a shutdown? Do people on non funded projects usually get furloughed or kept on? Asking because I've been at a bigger firm that kept everyone on during the last shutdown, but I'm at a much smaller company now that is going to furlough on a project by project basis (if your project is shutdown, you get furloughed). Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?
