I’m due to get the vaccine tomorrow and feeling under the weather today with some cold like symptoms (fatigued, slightly sore throat, slight muscle aches). I often get these symptoms right before my period, which is scheduled to arrive in the next couple of days, so could be that, but I also don’t want to risk (i) getting anyone sick at the vaccination clinic or (ii) getting the vaccine if I’m actually sick. Would you postpone?
My sister and I are 29 and 31, respectively. I’m struggling with something that has irked me our entire lives. My parents pay for things like her dog’s medical bills, vacations and moving expenses. They always want to help. The problem is they’ve never offered to pay for those things for me, and I’ve never asked because I’m a fully grown adult and don’t want them to spend their retirement on us. She has savings and isn’t struggling financially. Why does this bother me so much?
The post earlier today about a sick baby and a bad manager hasn't left my mind. Tonight, I found the article linked in the comments. Fellow mamas, don't let this be you. This hit me hard.
Heading into benefits open enrollment and beginning to receive current provider renewal percentage increases (medical and dental) as well as market offers from other providers. Curious what other employers have experienced and hoping to receive successful negotiating techniques. My company is too small to receive claims experience data from the provider. What % increase did you see for a small to mid size company?
NJ fishes, could you please recommend places for medical for the greencard process? Thanks!
Dear new freelancers: stop lowballing your rate by charging like you were a fulltimer. You have to pay for your own healthcare, equipment, holidays, sick days AND downtime between gigs.
Does anyone else get such awful periods that you basically can’t work / get violently ill? Mine have been getting worse and worse and I’ve tried BC and hasn’t really done much for me. :(
I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
I need serious advice. I’m so sick of the one matrimonial site I’m on. Any suggestions on which ones actually work? Any success stories from those of you who went this route? 30F fwiw.
Just got fired (freelancer) for being sick.
Can anybody suggest any books or resources to get smart on medical device marketing and/or medical device manufacturing?
I am really ill with the flu but I have an end of study Steerco meeting tomorrow. What should I do?
Hi 🐠! I started with a health tech startup immediately after my Mat Leave finished and have been so happy since i made the change. We are on a hiring push and I wanted to shoot a link out to the bowl in case anyone is looking to make a change. Perks are amazing (4-5m paid mat leave, 100% employer paid medical, unlimited PTO, lifestyle spending account stipend, ESOP). The biggest pushes are in our tech and product areas. If you or anyone you know is looking to make a change, take a look!
Has anyone taken a short term leave of absence for medical reasons ? How much does it affect you?
What options do I have to leave my current job? - L1-A status (so tied to this job/company) - H1-B approved, but not used yet - I-140 approved - I-485 receipt notice received, no biometrics, AP or EAD yet My job is mentally affecting me and I'm literally sick everyday. I know the right answer is the stick it out since I'm so close, but any other creative alternatives?
Watching documentaries on serial killers and there are some sick f's in the world. Trips me out
Observation: The “vaccinations are a personal medical choice so get off my back” crowd uses fundamentally the same argument as the pro-choice crowd. And the “require vaccinations to go to school, work, mass gatherings, etc.” tactic is similar to those advocated to make the lives of undocumented immigrants hard.
Taking medical leave because of my anxiety and depression issues. Need to figure out what to do. Perhaps an intensive outpatient program. Terrified of what’s to come
I hope every day that the assholes that fired me for bullshit reasons (other than my salary was too high and they were awful managers and worse people) would perish in flames.
Came across a role at Deloitte in Richmond, VA today called HRST Talent Culture & Change Management Specialist. Can anyone give me insight into the type of role this is, day to day, comp, etc?
Does anyone actually get complimentary upgrades due to United status? I just hit gold and so far it seems like a hoax.
Life lesson from Christopher Walken: "None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought."
I am thinking of switch from plaintiff side work to defense work in employment litigation. Has anyone made this switch? Did you regret? We’re billable hours too much to handle? More in comments.
Just got my annual bonus.. looking to splurge on an espresso machine. Does anyone have any recommendations on specific models, auto vs semi auto? And my budget is $500-$1500
Do you have to join Deloitte within 2 weeks of H1B approval to get the sign on bonus? I would like to push the start date by a week but my recruiter told me that if you don’t join within 2 weeks of visa approval you would not receive the sign on bonus. Anyone been in this situation? Thoughts? TIA
Only busy season benefit: save 100% on food costs and that mileage expense.. ready to pad my checking account.
I’m working for snakes. CDs who sabotage me and my partner at every turn. Insane. Why are there people like these?
Despite our covid numbers going up, my district is starting in-person learning. I teach first grade and am scheduled to go back Dec 8th. We are using a "concurrent" model where we will be teaching both in person and online students simultaneously. Mondays will be planning days. Is anyone else doing this? What advice do you have to do this successfully without being totally exhausted?
Another analyst (male indian) starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). What should I do
What would your “walk out” song be if you could have one playing in the background as you exit on your last day?

I feel violated - stepdaughter asked me and my husband to ensure that we’re Covid free prior to traveling to visit her. I assured her we are vaccinated and limit contact with others. A few days later I learned she took her entire family to a sport event where people tested positive for Covid. It seems hypocritical.
Our healthcare practice is hiring! DM if you are interested with your background and positions you're interested in.
A pretty good exit
