Mid life crisis maybe? I recently sold my house (mid renovation, was just sick of it) so now I am renting. I don't like my city, I am just here for the job. I don't really like that either, I had the job to pay for my house. I had a house because I had a lot of stuff. I have learned due to covid I can live happily out of my van/camper. I have no plan for kids and have decided I am happiest solo. Wtf do I do now? Feeling very aimless. Like I could probably coast-retire n live on $20k/yr.

I’m in audit looking to be promoted to senior in July. Wondering if there’s any reason to stay at my firm for that promotion if my goal is to get away from auditing. Thinking I might end up in advisory or even pivot farther away from accounting in general. Does having that senior title on my resume matter?
2nd tri. Anyone else order two dishes at restaurants because the things you loved eating pre-pregnancy now have 50-50 chance of making you sick?
Hi, looking for medical professionals who studied in the EU at university and went to the UK for the Foundation Years 1 & 2 and subsequently their residency? I'd like to discuss the process - thanks a lot!

Hi all, Need your advice. One of our worker’s wife is fighting cancer. We know that he needs to take care of her and work the same time to cover medical bills. So we decided to collect money for him. Should I do it secretly and only let him know after I’m done collecting money or should I get his permission first? I need to figure out which way would be less uncomfortable for him. Thanks!
Sitting in the middle seat. Guy on my left is significantly obese, probably a medical condition. Guy on right, his email signature says Weight Watchers. I want to introduce them to each other.
Is the grass always greener. I’m super happy in my current job. I like my coworkers, I get to do the projects that I want, and I have an all around good support network. I have also built my reputation up enough to the point where I have a lot of flexibility and can control how I work. But sometimes it bothers me knowing that I could leave and get a significant raise. Reading fishbowl it seems like everyone chases money regardless of how happy they are currently
Hey there Female Bosses! I have a sensitive question and I'd love your opinion... I was tracking for a promotion and pay rise, by all company measures I earned it! The reviews ran into my maternity leave, which resulted in the company telling me nothing will happen while I'm on leave (literal discrimination). Do you have a suggestion on how I make sure I get what I earned over the past number of years? Thanks for your advice
[Promotion & PERM] Scenario1: The firm already sent PWD and did the market test for Manager level, but before they got to file in the PERM, you're promoted Senior Manager. Q1. What's the impact of a promotion from Manager to Senior Manager on the ongoing PERM? Does it void the PWD and Market test? Would need to start over? Anyone went through this? Scenario2: The firm didn't file PWD yet: Q2. Could they anticipat the promotion and start PWD and Market test for SM before your promotion?
I was checking and comparing healthcare costs for the two companies my spouse and I work for. For me with HSA it is around $900 per month for just Medical, Vision and Dental. For my wife (with HSA) it is $300 per month. Both have $3000 deductible. My out of pocket max is $14000 while my wife’s is $7000. All of these numbers are for a family of 4. Why do we have such a huge difference in healthcare costs for similar coverage? My wife’s company is 30K employees and my company is 300K employees.
Need advice on whether or not to use an MBA consultant. Any opinions / thoughts appreciated! Situation: just turned down a promotion and quit my job because it doesn’t align with my career goals and was becoming a waste of time. Planning on spending the next 10 weeks studying for GMAT and applying for new jobs/volunteering, then applying R2 for 2021. I have a 3.9 GPA in a non-traditional major (French lit) from a “fake Ivy.” Only M7s I’m interested in are Kellogg and Sloan. (Cont.)
Serious note to all those posting on LinkedIn offering to write a recommendation for anyone they know who has been laid off. How about just writing it without having to be asked first. The last thing someone who just lost their job wants to do is ask you for help, even if they need it. If you want to make their day, just go ahead and do it. Oh, and don’t write about them in the past tense, especially if they haven’t changed their employment status on LinkedIn.

Advice on taking and passing the SPHR exam?
I currently work for a mid market firm (regionally known, ranked between top 30 and 50). I am doing well and very well liked here. It’s a great fit culturally and I rarely work more than 45 hours a week doing FDD and my total comp is 115K this year. The last transaction I worked on closed for $380M so I do get to see deals of larger sizes. I’ve only been here about a year. I got an opportunity to leave to an investment banking role. Should I take it?

So, Agoda. What’s up with this recruiting process? No info on comp, just constant bragging about how they have members from FAANG from around the world joining, and that should be enough to convince you to consider relocating to Bangkok and undergo 5 - 6 rounds of interviews, a 30 minute assessment and a 2 day case study?
