How does one get into underwriting in the western MA area? I have an associates degree in business and 5 years of insurance experience. I just can’t seem to find a company near me to apply for an underwriting entry level position. I’d rather not start in claims and work my way into underwriting but that’s my only thought process. Thanks in advance!

I will be going back to work after a STD leave due to stress (both personal & professional). I feel like I'm ready and am looking forward to work even. Today I was told that the insurance company recommends a gradual return to work (3h/d ) for the first few weeks. Now I'm nervous about how that will be perceived by my practice, which focuses on chargeability. I'd rather go back at a 100% capacity to avoid any negative perception. People who have gone on STD leave, what was your experience?

My company promoted someone and didn’t give them a raise, citing raises they gave last year.

This is obviously idiotic of our management. The person took the promotion, and found a new job and left without giving 2 weeks notice. Stranded multiple projects for a new product of ours and our management is scrambling to help the clients and find someone to backfill his role.

I’ve never been more proud of a coworker. Management deserves this and deserves to fail.

I am product designer with a fair amount of experience (6yrs).

Recently was interviewed for a Sr. role in Booking but unfortunately, the team finds me better suited as a core individual contributor.

I am also in the advanced stages of some lead designer positions in other companies.

However I am really interested in joining the team at Booking, especially because of the design culture.

What should be my reasons to accept or not accept the offer from booking?

5 month ago I joined Ceridian IT as remote. Due to nature of work, I have very little to no involvement with other parts of my team. I like what I do, pay is ok, manager is not so involved. That’s pretty much my life rn. With all the news about recession and what not, what do you think about Ceridian’s future?
I found a few including Dropbox, Uber, Shopify hiring for the similar role that I’m in. Should I consider those or where would you place Ceridian among these companies?

Hi all, wondering if anyone any insight or advice for an attorney who has been practicing for three years now and wants to pivot out of law firm life and into in-house/regulation/compliance.
