What is the WLB and culture of UnitedHealth Group like? Considering a mostly remote director role there…
One of my junior associates recently resigned and I've been trying to make an exit myself for several months now. The job market has been really competitive but I am getting closer to getting a new job and moving on. The firm culture isn't great and work-life balance is non existent. My physical and mental health have been suffering, so I really don't think I could stay. How did you avoid the guilt trips from Partners/Senior staff trying to get you to stay?
I took a promotion last year. My new Mgr doesn’t develop me, I spend 5+hours/day in meetings, I get 100+emails/day, and I had no onboarding. The department has tons of attrition and it seems like senior leadership is turning a blind eye. I love the company but the department is just bad/chaotic. I tried expressing my concerns and offering solutions but my Manager said “chaos is our culture.” I’m not sure what to do with that. I’m interviewing for other jobs but I wish i could stay.
Can some1 tell me which company is better wells fargo or Natwest in terms of wlb, year on year appraisal, work culture and diversity candidate?
Thank You in advance
Is Deutsch LA a sinking ship? I’ve heard from a few creatives the culture there has gotten more toxic in the past few months. They have a great portfolio - was considering working there one day but...
How do you know when it's time to leave?
Our agency changed owners earlier this year. Prior to that, we were a boutique agency that emphasized kindness in the culture and I loved it.
Now, they're trying to grow aggressively and are treating us pretty poorly in the process. Workloads are higher and the culture has soured and become very negative.
Are all agencies like this? If I go somewhere else, will it be more of the same?
HELP! Need some advice 🙏🏻
Ive recently interviewed at a tech unicorn (data integration tool), an IPaaS company & Amazon AWS (SDR/ BDR for all)
pay wise, the IPaaS company & AWS pays a lot better whereas culture wise tech unicorn & AWS is better. There’s potential career growth for all, just that with the tech unicorn, progression may be faster as they r expanding.
I’m torn now and don’t know which to choose. Heard it’s quite tough to work in AWS
Would appreciate any advice! Thank u

Amazon Finance question: Have a virtual onsite for a FM role coming up in a week. All I find online is very poor reviews of Amazon’s work culture, high stress levels and no work life balance. Can I get some perspectives here on how true they are and are these pervasive throughout the company or just pockets. Trying to figure out if I should really put an effort for the 5-hour interview if it’s not worth it at the end? Please help!!!Amazon

I need a hobby. Turning 40 tomorrow. 😑 My life has been nothing but work and wine for the past 16 years. I think hitting 40 seems like a wake up call to do more than work.

I am very successful as an attorney but the costs have been no partner, few friends, no kids(I am thankful for that) and just nothing that makes me happy.
