I was laid off yesterday due to change in my departments objectives, does anyone know of any Medicare Advantage opportunities in the Payer Space that align with IT and Operations?
Looking for advice on dealing with a boss who is extremely difficult to work for. For example, my colleague has worked entirely remotely since COVID hit in March. She had planned to make 2 trips out to her family out of state during the holidays (for Thanksgiving & Christmas) but recently requested to stay during the interim, when it looked like her apartment might be under voluntary evacuation due to wildfires. Said colleague lives alone and found it beneficial to be around family (cont below)
I’ve seen a few posts about long waits but does anyone know the typical time it takes to receive an offer or rejection after lateral callbacks? Or, if we could start a list of recent experiences with offer timing that would give me an idea. I feel like covid has made everything wonky. Pref big law corporate positions
Pre-COVID, or even now, which agencies did you consider to have good reputations/be going places? Where would you want to work?
Hey Everyone! I’ve unfortunately just got laid off from my company. This is my second time in 5 months getting laid off due to budget cuts. Quite frankly, I’m drained and in need of leads. I’m a DEI TA sourcing specialist with experience sourcing Technical, Finance, HR, Sales, Marketing, Supply Chain, Operations and Shared Services. I’m seeking a full time FINTECH company, but I’m open to opportunities because beggars can’t be choosers. Feel free me if you know of anything! —-thank you!
For anyone who was laid off, recently got laid off, or just feeling hollow and empty inside cause life seems to be in the shitters...things will get better. Reach out on here or DM me if you ever feel like the demons are too much to handle.
Is anyone’s SO getting them on their nerves? I am engaged, and i remember before COVID19 I was so sure about marrying this guy.. we argue almost every day and now i think we’re not compatible.
Does anyone here know the mat leave policy at Accenture? And what’s their take on travel once things start opening up - will it be 80% like pre COVID times? Interested in connecting with someone in the Change Management practice
Anyone know what the COVID vaccine roll out for Toronto is? When can we expect to get it and is there a website to register?
I keep getting surprised each month by our firm financial reports indicating we are relatively on track with our pre-Covid budget, while also watching our overall billable hour numbers for the year continue to go down. So, it is really 2021, when our 2020 backlog AR won’t be rolling in, that I should really be planning to hunker down for?? Seems a bit like the disconnected stock market to economy.
Since I got laid off in April I’ve been focusing on freelance until I get a full time job. Do I put freelance on my resume as my present job or is that not important?
What’s a really great gift for a friend who helped me a lot with my newborn? Budget is $200-300 - don’t want to do restaurant or massage given covid, and alcohol feels too impersonal. Thanks!
Someone under me was laid off. I referred her to the position I turned down. She got it. Happy for her. Can I ask what her offer was/what she’s making? I know I shouldn’t need to.....
Pre-Covid vs Post-Covid Era:
A 20 LPA CTC during Pre-Covid era equivalent in Post-Covid Era would be:
A) <=25 LPA
B) 25-30 LPA
C) 30-35 LPA

This is for a survey. I will record all responses and post the percentage of responses to each option after receiving a good number of responses.
So i was seeing the post around Deloitte USI work life balance, culture, hikes and bonuses were comparing to others. Let me tell you, this is the same company which gave me 1 lakh joining bonus, 20k award,10k special compensation, 5k spot award,15k furniture expense, 25k smartphone, 1.5k internet, awesome laptop to work, 15 days covid leaves. And today 22% hike 160% bonus. I mean i just joined 6 months back. What else you want from any company? I have great WLB since joined. #greatCompany #Love❤
Are the layoffs done in Analytics Dept or are they yet to do it?
Also is this layoff a regular periodic exercise? I am asking this since I came to know that Innovaccer did a similar thing back in 2020 where 100 people were layed off and most were interns.
I’m looking to start investing with a brokerage account. Should I max out my Roth first? My current contributions for 2020 is about 4000 do I send a lump sum of $ to hit the max before year end? For the brokerage, I know time in the market beats timing the market but when is the market going to drop with political and Covid uncertainty? Seems inflated a bit. Thank you for your help!
EPAM Systems EPAM Anywhere
Another layoff at epam today. She was on pool and joined the company two months back. EPAM layoffs only who are on pool ☹️☹️
Got one of the rapid covid nose swab tests last week (negative thankfully). But good lord it was unbelievable uncomfortable! If I had to get my little kids tested I don’t know that I could physically get them to do it without seriously restraining them. Have you had your little kids get the nose swab? How did it go?

Interesting article in American lawyer about returning to the office. Funny quotes…
“Another said they sensed a “shift in commitment at all levels in the firm.”
“In the past ‘life’ was organized around work with clients being the center of our focus. Now colleagues seem to think that work can be organized around life whether that is walking the dog, picking up from nursery or isolating because of upcoming holidays. The business of law and serving the clients has lost priority.”
Has anyone worked for The Segal Group in their claims department? How is it and how is working at this company? Pros? Cons? Thank you.Segal
Does anyone feel they interview poorly because of their nerves, even if you prepare prior to the interview and find good examples of your skills and experience to match the role requirements? My nerves always get the best of me and I tend to ramble when I’m nervous. I had a phone interview with the hiring manager and members of the team that the role would be working with and I feel like I shot myself in the foot a few times. Does anyone have any tips to get past their nerves in the interview?

Looking for some honest opinions on a career in law: I have always wanted to be an attorney but I got married young and went the entrepreneur route as a software developer. However, now that I’m in my 30’s, I’ve started the last year of my undergrad and I’m strongly considering law school.
For those of you in the field, what would you tell someone in my position? Would you recommend law school? Would you do it again? Would you discourage it?
The community manager for our community/networking sites is a lot more casual than I think is appropriate, do you think there is a way I can suggest to him that he start cracking down on the rules without making it sound like I am accusing him of not taking his job seriously enough?

On a track for promotion for Q1 but feeling burnt out and like I can’t manage the workload in order to make that happen. I brought this up to my manager and she said “well we probably won’t be able to get you the promo until Q2 then in order to get all the data points needed”. Her point is pretty accurate, but am I crazy to slow down for my mental health and sanity at the expense of delaying promo by 3 months?

I just don’t want to sign a 12 month lease rn then get laid off next week
Exactly...just asked my apt if we could do month to month, anticipate landlords are gonna need to be accommodating to get rents at all
Do you have the offer already? If not, wouldn’t worry about this yet
Oh hm, I know a few people who have moved during this time to other cities and they said it went fine
You can find 6 month leases on Craigslist pretty easily, limits your options a bit more, but can be a good idea for a new job you’re not sure you’d keep for a year
I’m not worried about breaking a lease. I signed a lease in NYC last month as well. Makes the same difference if I get laid off.
