Non-accounting rant…Our lease is up at the end of April and we recently got our new lease contract. All of a sudden, the leasing company is requiring renter’s insurance. It’s apparently a new requirement for all new and current residents. It’s definitely a good thing to have, but isn’t there some sort of requirement for landlords to communicate big changes to leases in advance and not just stick it on the lease and hope everyone reads it? It seems kinda predatory and sneaky.

The culture around PTO on my 6-7 person team is one where: 1) no one (besides me) takes more than 1-2 days off a year, 2) people frequently brag about how little time off they take…”I only took one day off for my child being born”, 3) people make comments that I’m “always on vacation” (in the last 2.5 years working at my company, I’ve taken cumulatively ~4 weeks off). Team workflow is deal-based so it’s difficult to plan in advance for taking time off as deals often come up unexpectedly. Cont…
So! As many of you begin to prepare for a return to school, I prepare to exit the classroom with Friday being my last teacher workday as I switch careers. I guess I wanted to say that I wish you all well and the best of luck. I hope mental health becomes a focus going forward. I hope that teachers can be at the center of decisions instead of everything always being for the students. Martyrdom should not be expectation and it is my hope that you all get held to reasonable standards. You matter

Hey Pharma Senior Associates, how is your work life balance? Pharma gets a bad rep but I would love to work on an account with insight into healthcare. What account are you on/ how do you enjoy it?

I grew up in a low income and single parent family. Humble beginnings. Now doing an average job as an accountant. I always feel inferior and insecure during a relationship. I know it’s not good but I cannot stop feeling that way. I don’t know how to become the confident, outgoing and stress free version of myself.
Hi! I have a young family and wanted to start a life insurance policy in addition to that one provided by my firm. I’m early 30s and I think permanent life over term has more advantages, but really looking for suggestions on where to start? Thanks.
Just found out my mother is dying from cancer and does not have much longer to live. I took a week of PTO to help my dad. I can’t afford to take leave and my family thinks I should continue working. Has anyone gone through the same? How did it impact you? I told my team and they’re supportive, but I’m at a loss about how this will impact me professionally.
Would love to hear from moms whose babies went to daycare / school right after maternity leave (no nanny etc). Due in March and on the list for a stellar Montessori daycare / preschool near us to start in August (school year) when baby is 4-5 months old. Feeling guilty and struggling to decide if keeping baby home a year with a nanny is better, starting school in 2023? However, I’m worried about cost - we really would not be able to afford a nanny in our city on our salaries. Advice welcome!

I am married for 4 years and my wife is pregnant in her 2nd trimester. As much we love each other, We always had our share of fights and arguments over one thing or the other since the very first year of marriage but we somehow sailed through. Now when she is pregnant our arguments have now almost doubled. Since she is pregnant I am always the one who is apologizing and trying to be the nice guy though internally my soul is really pissed off and I feel like not to be with her. I want to tell h

Should I be concerned for my career with lack of billable projects? Background: Analyst hired out of undergrad in July 2020. I have worked on 3 proposals in the last 2 weeks, and 5 in the last 2 months. In the past year since I was hired, I have 8 months of billable work which is actually slightly higher than the other Analysts I joined with. Should I keep collecting paychecks and hoping for projects, or is this a serious issue that should prompt an exit strategy?
Has anyone worked another FT job in conjunction with the current? Any lowkey project or rolls I can do?
Current firm is pretty slow and I don’t feel like I’ve gotten as much substantive experience as I could have elsewhere. I guess I was TOO honest about that during lateral interviews, so a firm gave me an offer but would want me to take a class cut. Thoughts?
I I’ve been working remote full-time since March 2020. I’ve hired people remotely. Ive sold shit to clients remotely. I’ve done good work that I’m really proud of remotely. I think I figured out the work from home/remote thing pretty well. I’m starting a new job on Monday that is also fully remote and I’m kind of terrified. Have no idea what it’s gonna be like to start a job this way. Any advice?
