Recently found out a male colleague with the same amount of experience and title is making 40% more than me. Any advice?
Anyone has experience negotiating a medical bill with MGH. I got some blood work done and was sent a bill of 1800. The bill was 2700 but negotiated rate with my insurance is 1800. I got the exact same blood work done in NC 2 years back and it cost me <200. My insurance said i should have gone to labcorp. I am new to Boston and didn't know this. MGH says prices are higher as we are a teaching hospital. It's just open loot and does not make sense. Anyone dealt with a similar situation.

Are MBAs valued in corporate strategy roles at F500? Or does just your work experience matter
Do you sometimes feel like you’re doing all of the conceptual work while your AD partner “just” adds some pictures? I recently feel like work load (especially intellectual) is not equal but don’t know how to adress or deal with this.
Are there any law firms out there with better comp than Big 4 tax and won’t work you more than 50 hours a week?

So I am a CFE and I recently switched to a new organization that doesn’t provide CPE trainings regularly each year like my old firm. CFE requires 20 CPEs per year plus a membership fee & I don’t think

UTI on the job. Kill. Me. Now.
How do you feel what you want to feel but also not take it personally? I can let a situation/conversation go, but my reaction doesn’t mean I’m necessarily taking it personally right?
Hi guys, what will you do when a man thinks you’re “all about the money” when 1. You have never asked him for anything 2. You highlight the importance of financial security/capability (contd)
My employer wants to make sure I feel ‘supported’, feel free to be ‘my authentic self’, and have ‘work life balance’.
Bless their hearts, they really believe they want ALL that.
No f’ing way.
I would like to have your opinion on this : I feel like I'm not appreciative and grateful enough for the amazing person my husband is and all he does. I often find myself focusing more on how he could be better, more this, less that, instead of appreciating all the positive. I am very critical of him and this is not something I like of myself. Any advise on how I can improve this?
We have been together 10 years and I don't want to take something amazing for granted.
Question. So I had this old friend reach out to hang out (male). Thought he just wanted to grab coffee and catch up. He tried to hook up with me and there's a speculation that he is schizophrenic. I left an awful marriage last year and this interaction with this guy was triggering. I told my friend I was going to meet this guy for coffee and apparently she knew he was 'off' but didn't warn me and only told me after the fact despite knowing about the divorce etc. Would you be mad about this?
Ladies, if your alumnae group were organizing a fitness class, when would you be most likely to join?
I was pinging with two male SMs and we’re all leading the vision on an RFP. One SM wrote a bunch of comments on a slide I did which was complete opposite direction of what we discussed. I inquired about how it didn’t match the RFP request and wouldn’t be the best soln for the client and he replied “calm down.” Now I’m infuriated. I am sure he wouldn’t say that to the male colleague for asking questions. I feel like I want to call him out on that but not trying to blow up any drama. Just venting
Ladies who added your husband’s last name to yours? Is it bothersome to have such a long name? Do people usually just use yours and leave out your husband’s for simplification purposes? Just curious about your experiences (ladies who chose not to add/change name, I understand your POV so no need to sell me on it 😊)
Would you go to a wedding if you never met the bride and only are friends with the guy? I was invited many times to their place but couldn’t go during the virus and they’ve been together for 2 years. I’m Indian and so is my friend but the girl is Caucasian so it’s an American wedding and the only reason I mention that is because I kinda feel she could’ve invited someone else that she was close to than someone she never met. What do you all think? Tia! :)
Anyone who has gone through egg freezing? I’d love to start the process ASAP to avoid paying more once my deductible resets in January. Any tips to make the process faster? Should I start pre natal vitamins now? Should I get off birth control? My first appointment is at the end of the month and I’d like to do everything right so I can expedite the process
Work with all men & asked for permission to a shared drive and the males are sending me links to the documents as if I don’t know how to open a link instead of granting me access 🤦🏻♀️
Hi ladies how did you know your “person” was your “person” ? Did you click instantly or it took some time ?
Worst headache ever from my period..already took ibuprofen but it's not helping. Anyone have any recommendations?
I’m 24 and I feel lonely. It’s so hard making meaningful friendships at this stage in my life and I’m so depressed about it. I’m stuck with my high school friends and don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for them but I just want to meet new people and build new relationships already. I currently wfh and am in a long term relationship. How do I make new friends and keep them? I tried bumble but that failed completely. Seems like all people want to do now is find other people to go clubbing with ☹️
Have only 7 weeks left to write my 10k dissertation and need some well wishes and positive vibes please!!! Not making much progress and between work and life it’s been stressful. Hoping to use my dissertation as a launch pad for my career.
Got back my wedding pictures today. Instead of focusing on all of the love all I can see is how much I dislike the way I look. Disappointed in my reaction. Not exactly asking a question, just venting
