Cheap health insurance for LA freelancers ?
Hi Fishes, I have been offered a role in UST in banglore. How is the WLB , benefits and culture? Thanks in advance.
Any examples of pharma/healthcare TikToks?
I am 36 and took out 80K out of the 200k in my 401k due to unforeseen hardship (pretty upset that I lost the before tax ROI which I’ll never get back). I have a rental property, a primary home with mortgage, and no other investment (sold all my stocks due to the same hardship). Any recommendations as to how to build back up (other than maxing out 401k each year)?
I’m a 28F who is barely getting into investing. It’s frustrating that it took this long but as a first gen college grad, my parents didn’t know anything about this stuff until very recently, so naturally I was never taught about it. It’s crazy to see people younger than me with all this knowledge on saving and investing. How did you learn so much at such a young age? Any advice for someone like me who is starting out so late in the game?
Just got an offer from a growing private company for an FP&A analyst role. 2 YOE at Big 4 plus CPA. They offered 75K plus decent benefits. No 401K currently (told its in the works for 2021) or bonus. Its their final offer. It’s a MCOL. I like the people I’ve met but the only thing holding me back is I feel like I should be making at least 80K plus a bonus. Do y’all think the offer is reasonable? The recruiter said not many companies hire someone directly from an audit background for this role.
My friend posted this so I thought I’d share here. Might work for early career people looking to transition from healthcare into program management/desk research? I know they also have software, so there would be some tech involved. The range has some flex if you have a MS degree and relevant experience. I love how open she is with the salary - I’m willing to bet there is a little flex on the upper end of you have relevant experience. https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/research-analyst-at-aurora-wdc-2021934311
Are any of you ladies based in the D(M)V and know of companies hiring that have great WLB and benefits? My background is in Operations, and I’m currently looking for new opportunities.
Campus recruiters at professional service firms — has scheduling final rounds changed in a virtual world for your firm or do you still try to schedule your candidates on Fridays with a full day of back to back interviews? Is it easier or now preferred to schedule ad hoc through the week? I was on maternity leave last year during COVID and I’m curious if preferences for students (or interview teams) have changed? I would still think the former/old way is better from work planning perspective.
Government can’t even count votes or build a website to buy health care but let’s trust it to take over our healthcare.
What's the best health insurance policy that I can take for my parents . Does Ericsson offer good one ? I left HCL and joined Ericsson but I I would like to continue the same insurance that I got from HCl but not sure how should I port. Suggestions are appreciated.
Newbie to healthcare here with a very basic question: if a provider stores medical records electronically, and a patient requests those records to be sent via mail, is it still considered ePHI/EHI? In other words, is it the way the data is maintained rather than the method of transmission? (Asking in context of new Information Blocking rule)
Hi Fishes, I am getting calls from various consultancy from naukri, for scheduling a interview for various companies. I want to know like what is the benefits these consultancy gets. Will they ask money from us once we are selected , or take money from the company which results in our package reduction ?
Interviewing at Kearney and BCG, but currently on maternity leave at Deloitte until mid-Oct. Should I tell the recruiters now that I would need a delayed start date or leave that to negotiations if I get an offer? Would happily start sooner but D’s policy says I need to wait 30 days after returning from mat leave or I might have to “pay back” the benefit.
Currently at an M7 MBA with Healthcare Consulting experience - is there a chance I can break into lower to middle market VCs or PEs without going through IB? Any suggestions on how I can make it happen
I accepted a job 4 weeks ago and found out I was pregnant the weekend I accepted. I’m 2 weeks into the role and just discovered that I only qualify for maternity leave after one year. I come from a tech background and had never encountered these waiting periods. When you don’t have maternity leave because you don’t qualify, what do new moms do instead?
Nice! The post animation looks good!

Have you worked more than one job while wfh? — If so, how is it going or how did it go? Same industry or different? How do you balance meetings? Transparency to companies? Tips? Recommendations?
a recruiter reached out asking if I was interested in an accounting role with a 60k salary (I have 5 YoE). anyone have any similar clueless recruiter stories?
To MBB fish, how do you like the people you work with? There’s a stereotype that the MBB culture is cut-throat and people can be unnecessarily aggressive. No offense but most of those I met in social settings gave me a generally arrogant vibe too. I’m looking to apply to MBB from Tech consulting, but wonder if I’d fit in their cultures.

Asked staff for help on fire drill and they said they would start right away. Call 5 hours later at 10PM and they haven't started because they wanted to watch "their show". Should I go off in the AM?
Best level to exit? C or M?
Didn't know I was supposed to be tipping the entire time I've been on this project (3 months). This is my last week, how much should I leave the bellmen, housekeeping, etc? Apparently I can expense it
If we had to use an car analogy for consulting firms McKinsey = Rolls Royce, BCG = Lamborghini, Bain = Ferrari, Deloitte = BMW, PwC = Mercedes, EY = Volvo, KPMG = Audi and Accenture = Acura ? Thoughts
What's the deal around LTA? Everybody talks about it, but nobody seems to give enough f**ks to do something about it on a project.
I’m 28 years old and just realized that I make more money than a surgeon just to make ppt slides. Life is insane and we are all incredible lucky. Keep grinding kings
Is it possible to be taken off a role if it says you've "filled" it? Process was a bit unclear (new hire) and another opp came up! Please help!! 😥
Big4 company wants me to tell my current employer (big client) that I am intending to join them and sort of get a soft approval. This is before even giving a written offer. I have no interaction with anyone from this Big4 co, nor has anyone associated with both companies has helped. This is all after interview, offer negotiation, offer approval. Does this happen? Seems like I wasted my time.
I don't want to brag but I just finished a chapstick 😎
