Bit of a unique situation. I think my offices FDD team is falling apart. Since covid, 1/1 partner resigned , 2/3 of SM quit, 2/2 managers quit. I’m a bit concerned with deal flow moving forward. What would you do in this situation? Should I try to jump to another firm? Maybe ask for a raise? Honestly I am getting pretty crispy mental health wise
New mom here. My LO is 3 months old and I'm back at work. Has anyone tried any of those "hands-free" pumps like Willow or Elvie? They're like $500 and insurance doesn't cover them. Are they worth it?
Has anyone done home bleaching? I wanted to do the professional bleaching in the office but my dentist says they only have home bleaching. And it costs 450 euro (my insurance covers 300). Are they having the same effect? It seems extremely expensive for home bleaching...
Has anyone ever had to reshoot an entire spot because of a technical error? I guess insurance exists for a reason 🙃

Haven't spoken to my mother for 5 years. Started to talk to my dad about 3 years ago, but he wouldn't let her know we are talking for fear that she would freak out. My dad has some health issues.

Life insurance: do I need it? Not married (live with LT boyfriend - renting), own 2 investment properties, no kids, early 30s, in Canada. No “dependents”, and my family could pay for final expenses. I’m healthy and insurance is cheap. Should I just get it? Any extra $ if I pass suddenly could go to younger sibling/ family / charity, or to pay off mortgages. What am I missing?
PE is notorious for being difficult to get into unless you’re coming from IB. However, there are success stories for consultants breaking into PE even without an MBA. Which got me thinking, how difficult would it be for a healthcare management consultant to land a spot at a healthcare-focused PE firm?
Has anyone gotten an IUD through planned parenthood? My insurance doesn’t cover it at my OBGYN and I’m a huge advocate of PP but just want to hear others’ experiences
I had an eye appointment in June due to an issue with my eyes. When I called to make the appointment, they told me they would bill xx code, and insurance will cover a certain amount and I will have to cover $100. I confirmed with my insurance before the appointment. After the appointment, I received a bill with the incorrect code billed (similar code description), and I have to pay $180. I went to a different doctor in August because I still had the eye issue, and they billed the correct code..
Second year litigation associate deeply considering starting my own practice. I feel like the solo life, although difficult, would be more justified than working at a firm where all of my work is controlled and stifled. Thinking about doing property/insurance law, some family law, and debt defense. NY. Thoughts? Pros? Cons? Am I crazy?
Ladies who also abide by the “expecting better” philosophy that a glass of wine every once in a while is totally fine during pregnancy… I am going to a work women’s happy hour tomorrow. Yay or nay on using my weekly glass of wine? (I am clearly pregnant and people know I am pregnant). I kind of want to but I also fear the judgement and having to explain myself…

Tips for how you’re accumulating wealth with absolutely no financial inheritance/intelligence from parents? I want to retire early but am late in the investments game.

Let me get this straight. So, Jeep decides to spend millions on a cutdown from their SB spot just to say “stay in” instead of actively help health services and the Americans who lost their jobs.
What questions do you ask at the interview?
How do you all calm yourself down and mentally prepare for the week? Bad case of Sunday scaries knowing my colleague is going on vacation this week and I’m gonna have to balance a lot of work
Can interviewers tell if you are articulating a well-prepared story? I practiced about 15 stories for few months, used them, did not clear the interview. Versus lately, I did not prepare at all, only did "conversational stories" with interviewers and got an offer. Is this normal?
What’s the dress code for virtual interviews now? Have a first round with BCG and debating if a crisp shirt will be fine, or if I need a suit? It’s also super hot, so don’t want to be sweating the whole time 😓
How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
