Our policy is TOTAL BULLSHIT. I had to buy a medication that literally I would die without (in a matter of 1 to 3 days) on the black market for about a year, and I know how to navigate health insurance. Either that or our benefits manager sucks. Possibly both.

It also matters what type of plan. Companies will often cover more of a plan like an HMO but more of a 50/50 split if it’s a more expensive more comprehensive PPO. Personally I’d rather kick in a couple hundred bucks a month to ensure a good PPO.

Me too! While I COULD use the paid for plan I don’t. Because it sucks.

100% covered by the agency is definitely not industry standard. I have heard of this yet never have enjoyed it. Must be a pretty dope perk

Maybe people don’t realize they are paying for it because it’s coming out of their paycheck?

Nothing comes out of my paycheck besides the standard taxes, retirement, etc.

Not enough... IPG insurance is criminal

100% for my family of four on the consultancy side. We still have deductibles (not too high) and copays (reasonable). And an FSA, not an HSA, which I don’t love but I’m not complaining!

It is not common for health insurance to be fully covered. At least, not that I’m aware of from my precious agency experience or my in house role

Pay around $75 per paycheck, so basically $2,000 per year for health insurance. Agency/holding company pays the rest. I also pay extra for Vision and Dental, around $30 per paycheck for that. I have a $35 copay for doctors, and dental is limited to $1500-2000 in benefits per year.

Have a Q on the Mega Backdoor Roth:

I contributed 10% of after tax pay to a normal 401k and called Fidelity to rollover the after tax amount to Roth IRA. The issue though is that the after tax amount gets invested in my 401k investment election. So by the time I called Fidelity to process the rollover, there was a $12 gain on after tax amount. Fidelity transferred the original after tax amount to my Roth and transferred $12 gain to traditional IRA

Is that correct? Any tax implications to this?

Pros:
- astounding financial benefits, great healthcare

Cons:

- too many cultists
- closed culture with extremely compartmentalized information, working on a small piece of the puzzle, with reduced ability to demonstrate true value, unless already high up. 
- collaboration across teams is made unusually difficult and doesn’t seem encouraged.
- not remote friendly -- making everyone go back

Does anyone have experience working for a ALSP? How does compensation work (pay and benefits)? Are you an employee or technically an IC? Do you have billable requirements like at a firm? How do you think it prepared you to potentially move in house? I'm currently at a firm but thinking of taking a position with an ALSP but my goal is to go in house.

Do any carriers in Europe pay salaries equal to their American counterparts? I’ve found that the salary for my role is pretty much halved across the Atlantic.

I know that my company, Chubb, does and from time to time they have rotational programs where not only do you maintain your US salary but you also get COLA and a housing allowance, unfortunately nothing right now nor permanent.

Another option would be insurance companies that pay your American salary while working abroad.

Any leads?

Had a second baby almost a year ago now and just can’t get back into work mode. I used to be a workaholic and now can’t find any motivation in my current job. Most of it is probably sleep deprivation and feeling like I don’t have any time to myself anymore, plus burnout. Anyone go through this after having kids? How long did it last? I don’t have the option of simply quitting, but contemplating switching to a true 9-5, no-stress job, possibly out of law, while they’re young. But that’s scary.
