Why is US healthcare so expensive?
Any fish here dealt with a lonely/toxic parent? I recently came to the realization that my mom is toxic (think guilt-tripping, saying mother-child bond is sacred, making comparisons, etc.) and has become very dependent of me, and as much as I want to be there I can only do so much since I have a family myself. She refuses to move to a nursing/retirement home, look for companionship, and seek professional help for tasks she needs done such as car maintenance, insurance inquiries, etc. (Cont’d)
Hey mummas, I'm struggling with how I feel about my team at work. None of them, including my manager, have children and they just don't get it. I'm pregnant with my third and my manager has never once asked me how I'm doing, only ever refers to it in terms of me 'leaving' for maternity leave so he'll be a resource down. Never once asked how I'm coping with juggling wfh & full time caring for my children through covid, and icing on the cake my baby just recently.. (continued in comment)
Is the iPhone Upgrade Program w/ Apples’ monthly expense reimbursable under EY policy? Like for the monthly $60 reimbursement?
Anyone receive all expenses paid psychotherapy through their company?? Maybe you’re offered some EAP sessions?? Would love to learn more about how y’all are being supported at work. Working on collecting lots of data on this subject with the goal of advocating for more and BETTER benefits. Your health especially and your mental health are PARAMOUNT! If you’re comfortable I’d love to know more about how you’re being supported/unsupported by your employer 💖
23YO, saved 90K, 70k salary, been working for 1 year. Started investing in crypto and stocks a few months ago, maxing out 401k and Roth IRA. Any advice for investment or saving strategy?
How do you know if you're over saving for retirement? I get the advantages of 401k / Roth, but you have to wait until 65 for those benefits. For those planning early retirement, how are you thinking about this?
About to open a Solo 401K for my S-Corp and can't decide between Vanguard and Fidelity. Anyone strongly advise one or the other? Does it really matter much?
Hey all. Considering trying out Talkspace or Betterhelp, could anyone share experiences with them? Also does insurance cover part of these?
Folks with great benefits - which do you value most as a queer person? Folks with crappy benefits - what do you wish your company provided?
I’m getting married in 6 months. How can I lose fat in my arms?! I feel like my arms in my stomach are my biggest problem areas. Or at least the ones that make me the most self-conscious. And honestly my stomach isn’t that bad, it’s really just my arms. Any advice would help! I’m 27 with no real health issues other than being overweight, and I’m allergic to fish and nuts if that is helpful. I work out at least twice a week but trying to make it more like 4 for at least for the next three mo￼nths
What do your health plans look like? My coworkers often complain, but I think our coverage is quite good. My stats: single person, top end plan, $154/month with a $1300 deductible. No payout cap
Caused some damage on my car that cost ~$600 to repair. The following week was involved in a hit and run collision on the same side. Would insurance let me combine the claim?
Any tips on finding motivation after maternity leave? I’ve never been so uninterested in my job and am instead just thinking of all the time i’m missing with my baby 😕
Does anyone have any thoughts about a company terminating an employee within the HR team for testing positive for COVID 19 and further accusing the said employee of being the one that created the entire team to become infected by not answering the health screening questions accurately? The week prior to employee being tested the entire team was in the office sick. The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.
Folks - my parents are planning on visiting us in Nov and I am looking to buy health insurance. They asked in India and an agent is selling them a “cashless policy” which I am a bit unsure if it will work cleanly out here anything happens. My other option is to buy a policy from here where the underwriter is a US based insurance co and get coverage (similar to what we have). Any recommendations?
Our office isn't mandating people to come in until next year. But I went in and ended up staying until 11pm. Can I request reimbursement for a ride back home? Not sure if I can because the firm hasn't told us we must come in...
Trump’s health care plan is like knowing you have an essay due in 4 years, and then the day before it’s due you copy someone from your class, remove one paragraph and say it’s the best essay that’s ever been written in the history of that class

Fed Tax staff 1yr exp and no specialty. Want to do nonprofit tax but not sure I want to stay with my current firm. Should I try to make the jump here and switch later or start applying to other firms?
If you leave a local firm and go to big 4, there's an obvious learning curve, no? How have you all seen that addressed if coming in at the SA level from a smaller firm ?
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
Career advice: I became an HR mgr/BP relatively early on in my career so have 7 years BP exp. and 9 overall. I work in pharma as a Sr. BP/manager now. I’d like to make a move into an AD or higher role but seem to only get consideration for lateral moves. Not sure if it’s because I don’t have enough experience or if I’ve never had direct reports? How did you make that first jump? I’d need to relocate for anything at my current org which is not possible for me right now. Thanks for insights!
Product Manager vs Strategy/Business Operations at a Tech company if the goal is to optimize compensation and WLB? Current TC 125K (2nd year SC post MBA)
Does anyone know the salary difference between quantitative finance/data science jobs at big banks and FIs vs data science jobs in big tech? Assume similar COL between NYC and Bay Area/Seattle. I have always wanted to work in quant fin but given the current economic trend and desire to earn more, I am wondering if I should pivot to big tech to build a data science career.

Does anyone else feel depressed, sick and just totally burned out after this busy season?
Looking for advice and tips. I am due in December, will be taking a year off for mat leave. I don’t have “hobbies” and my current job wouldn’t allow part-time. The position is neither something where I could turn it into a “consulting” type of job/skill. How would I find a part-time gig if I didn’t want to go back working full-time? Hope my question makes sense
I’m currently a senior accountant and I mainly focus on accruals and expense analysis. Prior to this role I was in State & Local Tax. I wasn’t sure if tax is where I wanted to be at the time especially because I heard you can get pigeonholed. I actually kind of miss the work that I used to but also found tax can be very mentally challenging. I’m struggling with trying to decide if I should go back to tax or maybe use my current experience to go into FP&A or a Finance related role. Advise please!
Currently remote working from Santa Fe and I love it here. Anyone know what the scene is like for single people in their 30s as I know that the population skews older (like retirees)?
How have you guys celebrated career milestones? I told myself when I made manager, I'd finally treat myself and buy my first "big girl" bag. I feel like a big baby, but when I saw comp numbers this year, I cried. I haven't been in the mood to celebrate, but now trying to think of alternatives that might be easier on the wallet.
