Attempting to renter the workforce after a 2 year hiatus due to health issues followed by the pandemic. During this time off I had minor success running a small business, but not enough to pay the bills. I have 3 YOE, 1.5 as a Loan Officer, and 1.5 as a consultant within compliance and Fintech.

Hi friends! I know mental health is very private but wondering if anyone on here has been diagnosed bipolar and would be willing to speak to me? Best friend has been diagnosed and is swinging very fast between manic & depressive states while their doctors find the right balance of medication & therapy. Want to understand how I can best support especially in the extreme lows where they have darker thoughts & feel very confused about “why” this is happening. Would appreciate any help at all!
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.
Need advice for a paper in MBA program. What’s the absolute *WORST* financial product you can think of? Insurance, annuities, mutual funds, savings accounts... (and can’t be payday loans)
We're thinking of rolling out a weight loss competition company wide as part of our Health and Wellness month. Has anyone done something like this at their company and if so, is there an app that you recommend using? We want to keep people's actual weight loss amount confidential - we would love something that would record their percentage lost instead! Thanks in advance for any tips!
Anyone familiar with the Analytics Consultant role at CVS Health? Or the company as a whole?
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
I heard PwC is going to increase their presence in Nashville and go after more of the healthcare market. Has anyone else heard that?
Does anybody know of Accenture benefits pertaining to jewelry insurance? Not feeling like the $20/mo is worth it for this engagement ring. Should be comparable to my Netflix monthly cost.

Does anyone know if there is anything like short term disability coverage for mental health leave of absence from work?
Genuinely interested in educating myself. Some people are applauding Simone Biles for withdrawing from Olympics. I am trying to understand how mental health suddenly becomes an issue in a few days? It isn’t like a bone fracture that happens suddenly. Wouldn’t Simone (who has gone through hundreds of competitions) have known the scrutiny an olympic demands to have not participated in the first place? A genuine request - please refrain from attacking or posting non-constructive comments.
Incredibly random question. Does anyone know the specific insurance plan BCG employees get? I believe it’s Aetna. I am looking at getting a surgery in the next few months when I start this fall but trying to plan for if/how much would be covered. Boston Consulting Group

Best books about product management for a good exit to industry? I already have an MBA and PMP but looking for a refreshed perspective since it’s been years since my formal education. Currently reading “Product Managements Sacred Seven” but it’s geared toward the startup world. I am in healthcare and not looking for a startup role. TIA!!!
How does one go about transferring internal consulting resume to an external one? Looking to exit
If you apply for a remote position, will they adjust your salary based on where you live?
I am in the process of negotiating an offer for a new job. At my current job, bonuses will be paid out on august 20th. The bonus is sizable so I would like to stay long enough to obtain it. Ideally, I would wait until the bonus hits my account before I put in my 2 weeks. If the new job wants me to start sooner than august 20th, is it acceptable to say that I want to stay because of the bonus, or should I give a different reason? Is it a bad look if I say I want to stay for the bonus?
Other managers- how many clients are you on right now? Are you doing everything from senior consultant tasks (execution, documenting materials, leading meetings) to manager tasks (review, rework, billing, budgeting, client decks) across all of them? I feel like I’m being taken advantage of because they expect me to cover for everything but I don’t know what other managers are doing. So not sure if this is the norm (I’m a new manager). What’s manager life at other firms?
My 18- year son is supposed to leave to upstate for college next month. Today he told me he doesn’t want to go college and wants to cancel dorming . I told him he should go for a semester and try it out before giving up completely, maybe he might like. He is contemplating on going to the military. I feel that is very confused on what to do what his life, I support him but I don’t want him to miss the opportunity of getting a degree. Help, how do I act and what is the best advice for the kid?
