Why is pharma/healthcare unpopular? Have seen a few things in the bowl and just curious!
Does Healthcare companies like Anthem, Humana or United Health pay more than 160+ in their Technology group? Experienced on Docker, Kubernetes and Cloud Native world and Google Cloud certified..
Does Deloitte offer any fitness fund reimbursement and if so, how much is it? Can we purchase home office equipment with it? Would I be able to get stuff reimbursed this calendar year (my start date is Nov. 8th)?
I was invited to an event hosted by an insurance group. One of the three principals is a cfp but is not registered as a rr or iar. Does the cfp board let this happen?
Posts about 401k’s and IRAs dominate here. I never liked em for their restrictions. I buy land instead. Third time now. Tend to double my money at least, each time. Am I still missing out or I have I stumbled on something better???!
How are you guys preparing for next year? I'm thinking of of using Facebook ads to generate seminar invites in hopes of replacing mailing. Doesn't cost much to try and see if I get any benefits
What does big tech in house counsel salary look like? Is there a salary scale? Are there unspoken benefits that make it closer to big law salaries- like by stock options, 401k match, other perks?
Hey I am a Software Engineer with a experience of around 3 years. I am looking for a switch to a Data Engineer position. Any refferals would help. Referal from Rakuten , Tredence , Tiger Analytics, Lowe's , Legato , GE and other healthcare and Data Analytics will be helpful for me. Thank you
Unpopular opinion- maxing out your 401K is overrated. I would rather have the money for other investments that I can access now ( ie real estate). Thoughts ?
Thoughts on states that are trying to pass laws prohibiting mandatory vaccination of health care providers/employees?
Looking at buying a single family home in Austin to live in, and curious if anyone has a recommendation on home insurance providers with the best rates and what to watch out for when shopping around?
Thought I was going to get an offer for an internship but I was told they went with a candidate that had more experience :/ Now I’m freaking out because it seems like a lot of agencies already have their interns for the summer. Are there any agencies that still have their applications open?
I am currently studying at CSUEB (NorCal), and had some internship experience. I try to look for that values work life balance and values staffs at all ages. Unlike young folks fresh out of college, I am almost 40 and this is my second degree (switched my career path). The firm I interned with have full of young folks and I felt like a bit left out. Any suggestions for a cpa firm that is family oriented, value staffs, and relatively has variety of staffs coming from different background? Thanks
This is how life feels for me right now trying to get a foot into IP/data privacy law: Me, with a JD: Please let me work for you for free (i.e. internship) Company/firm: You are not good enough.
Setting up a 401k for the first time. Did you decide to do pre-tax or post-tax? Why did you decide that? Retirement savings and options are all overwhelming!
Is this reasonable or am I missing something? I started maxing my 401k from year 1 and I hope to have $5 million or more by the time I retire around 60. Wouldn’t it make sense to put all of my yearly $19,500 401k contribution to ROTH 401k instead of traditional 401k? My reasoning is that I would pay 35% tax now and my remaining 65% would grow tax-free in ROTH 401k…. versus traditional 401k where I deposit 100% but every distribution will be taxed 35% assuming I make a lot in retirement.
I need a profession with greater job security. What should I do? Big 4 seems like a shit hole?
Any Indians here who applied for Global entry? Do we still need to go interview in India or can we interview in the US now?
Booked a 48 hr trip to Orlando cause it was cheap ($120 round trip from dc!) just to get some warmth. Anything I must do? Staying at the ritz. Traveling alone. 32m single.
Who has taken a huge risk and failed? LinkedIn, business forums, and media love to normalize the “all-in” risks that led to reward, but who has a true failure story? How did or how are you working to come back from it? Life lessons exist in failure. Sharing these could hopefully help someone else facing the same crossroads.
Been working midsize for 9 months. I really want to go up to the big 4… 1) is it too early to leave? 2) Is it too late to apply? I’m on the east coast. Preferably NY/NJ if anyone can reference. 3) how do I explain to the recruiter why I’m leaving so early?
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
Successfully wrapping up a tough client engagement and the partner wants to know how you hung in there
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/05/26/magazine/stock-market-coronavirus-pandemic.html. Good read and it’s taken me a while to realize that the stock market isn’t the same as the economy and remember how forward looking the market is not just the next quarter
Do any of the top consulting firms have analytics roles (preferably not super technical) that don’t require weekly travel?
Just had a talk with a senior member about my declining mental health and how to best navigate an exit. Response was “blah blah do these things for your next study” which is fine I guess because he wants to see my career here continue. What bothers me is “there are lots of other people here feeling the same way”. How does help me in any way, we’re getting together in a circle of poor mental health and it’s going to solve everything? McKinsey & Company
When you track your travel expenses, do you include booked (and paid) travel for NEXT year as a current year expense or a next-year expense? I have separate excel workbooks for 2021 and 2022 but am curious what the norm is!
For the gentlemen who haven’t planned anything yet for Valentine’s Day, look into a staycation at Boro Hotel in LIC. They have Manhattan skyline views with balcony. Hotel offers services like these: rose petals to the room for $35, chocolate covered strawberries for $40, charcuterie board for $65, and get a bottle of champagne. Simple but romantic
Plan on moving to Dallas Texas next year. Currently with Deloitte MTS team and will be a senior at that time. Im wondering how the culture of the office is there? Also, how is the culture of the other firms. Im not opposed to moving firms. Just finished working three 80 hour weeks, so that would be a big plus to find a team where that is not expected on a regular basis!

Anyone know anything about culture / hours / associate lifestyle at Orrick’s NY office? Specifically looking for information about the IP transactions group, but also information on the overall firm culture.
This post is totally the definition of privilege, but I want to spend a small % of my bonus on something that’s just for ME (not house, car, daycare, practical, etc). Any suggestions for fun things?
