The trick is to create as much financial value whilst minimising the amount of human health you benefit. Every time someone gets healthy, they stop buying drugs. So you want to target chronic conditions (so you can take their money for a long time with no pressure to heal them) or the acute stage of other conditions. Early on in illness there is less pressure to get treatment and the treatments are easier. This means a patient can shop around for alternatives and it is hard to make profit. If you wait until they are desperate, you can charge whatever you like.

For actual hospital management, make sure to spend money on things that add no healthcare value but give the impression of quality. So make sure the uniforms are always new and trendy. Make sure all the rooms look fancy and all the fixtures (lights, bathrooms etc) are new and shiny even if they don’t actually do anything more than the previous version. This way, people will feel superior to other hospitals that might prioritise more expensive things like actual healthcare.

Lastly, use fear to make everyone get too much treatment. Stubbed your toe? Better get an MRI and a stay in hospital for 3 days. That will be $60,000👍

To avoid your patent expiring, make a similar molecule with a change that has no impact on efficacy, and patent that! Now bribe, sorry, ‘incentivise’, doctors to keep prescribing the branded version.

I am coach for someone in the USDC. I was talking about the pension and I was told that they only get the 401. I looked at our 401k plan and noticed the match is very poor. The match is .25.

This is horrible and if I was being honest then I would advise people to look to a company that cares for their future. I googled average matches and Deloitte is not even close to the average.

Hello,

I have 6.9 YOE as insurance Business analyst, I have worked in just one company, recently trying to switch and manage to secure an offer of 18 CTC from LTI as P3 (pune location)

Current CTC : 7.5 lacs (Indore location)

Is it a good deal? Or should I ask for more, as i was going through other people post, I found big figures for LTI P3 roles. Plz suggest as per my YOE and current CTC will LTI consider for more pay?

I was offered similar positions at competing banks. The salary for both roles are the same. What are other things I should negotiate (I’ve only negotiated salary in the past never additional benefits). Also, I would love either position.
