I have two Big Pharma Associate Director job offers: 1) Medical Affairs, 2) R&D Strategy. Which function in Biopharma offers the best career trajectory? I’m a MD with 2 YOE in consulting.
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. :(
Biglaw first year deferred from September to late January with a $10k advance. I had to incur $11,000 in credit card debt to live, & right when I started work, had a medical emergency that ended up costing me another $3,500. My paychecks have been smaller due to paying back the advance and prioritizing maxing out my 401k and HSA (my credit card debt was interest free). It was depressing working these hours to mostly just pay needs and my debt. Today I paid it all off! Woooooo! I feel so free.
I’m so sick of politics and people politicizing things that don’t need to be. This is the perfect time for a new political party to come out called the “I hate politics, let’s just” party (pun intended). Instead of blue or red it’ll be colorless. It’ll just include normal f-ing people who meet in the middle to agree on things and avoid drama. People will stop posting polarizing political posts with misinformation, and just post about normal things. Illegitimate news outlets will have less fuel.
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.
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
Are vaccinated people so concerned with the unvaccinated because they are worried about getting them sick? I mean after all vaccinated people can still transmit the virus just like the unvaccinated.
NJ fishes, could you please recommend places for medical for the greencard process? Thanks!
TFW you're already sick of winter and realize winter hasn't even officially started yet.
Received text today from USCIS supposedly? Anyone else? We submitted our medical with application so not sure if this is spam (and if so very stupid)…
I just learned that my younger adult sibling has been severely, deeply depressed. This surfaced when sib said they needed help moving and the family showed up to find that the entire apartment was under 3-4ft of trash, including a significant amount of rotten food. (Sib has no sense of smell due to past medical issues.) We are floored. Sib is very private and no one knew. With COVID, no one has been in the apartment. Sib’s supposed to be moving across the country, and we’re worried…
Just got fired (freelancer) for being sick.
This country needs labor laws that actually protect workers is when time like this comes, average folks like us don't have to worry to sick about layoffs.
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?
Just got back from a team dinner with the practice leader. I almost gagged myself with my spoon when everyone would laugh at his asinine jokes. #BrownNosers Corporate politics really make me sick.
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?
Feeling sick from anxiety this morning. Knowing I have to leave today and tough week ahead looming
Skin advice: Not trying to get too medical here. But, I’ve been having bacne (and related pigmentation) on upper back and upper arms. Doctors have called it Keratosis Pilaris. I’ve tried multiple things but nothing REALLY seems to work. Any tips / suggestions?
Everyone I know who was crazy safe during COVID round 1 is now sick. I think it’s because they didn’t get any exposure for so long. If we have another lockdown, what does it mean for public immune system ability to fight other viruses?
Need YOUR advise. I have a concert tomorrow at a sold out stadium concert. We’re in a Covid surge here with Delta, I am vaccinated but high risk. Should I cancel? Tickets weren’t that expensive. Just not sure how I feel about being with 20K folks. Especially wit the new data from the CDC.
Any Sr. RPA developers looking for a new gig? Remote work, possibility of some travel. DM me!
Anyone have insight on what the logistics of leaving Deloitte are? Give two weeks, do I need to tell project leadership? Can I sell my PTO or should I use it? Anything else I need to do? Thanks in advance.
Huron fish: what salary range can I expect for the healthcare consulting associate role? I have 2 years exp from Big 4. Glassdoor’s range is pretty wide so trying to narrow it down. Thanks!
Car trouble has me spending the night in rural Pennsylvania. For any of you dreamers thinking this might be the remote life you're ready to live, I promise you it is not. Although, I did just see one of the absolute strangest local pawnshop ads ever. Think low budget, high-school-theater version of how Tim and Eric might do it, except unironically and lacking any real "show my face in public again after this." So if you're a GCD or up, 80% chance you'd love the ad scene here.
Just got a big raise (50%+) starting July 1st that is going to move me out of income limits for direct Roth IRA contributions (prior to raise was under the limit) even with maxed pretax 401k and HSA - however I am already halfway through contributions ($3000). What options do I have to address these excess contributions?
Good news for everyone no matter where you are politically: New research indicates COVID immunity could last more than a year, especially after vaccination.
Just decided to go independent. Having trouble finding work as a contractor with other consulting firms. How do you get projects with the MBBs, Big 4, etc? I only know about pwc talent exchange...
Hey, anyone have experience with boutique turnaround advisory consulting shops? (E.g., Getzler Heinrich, Novo Advisors, among others) How does pay look versus larger RX (Alice, A&M) Versus MBB?
Signs that the economy has fully recovered and is going full steam. About a year ago people would have given their first child for a role of toilet paper, today, they just throw it on the streets.
Anyone can share insights on what is the average salary raise and bonus at Grant Thornton and Moody's investors service? Also, what should be the salary expectation range for a 6+ YOE, MBA, CFA ,FRM for New York Location in the financial services industry?
Strongly prefer working in-person (I’m a people person) but potentially have a great too-good-to-turn-down opportunity that would be fully remote. Advice on how to make WFH better?
Anyone decide not to BF right out the gate? Please no judgement I have made no decision yet. Halfway through pregnancy and already tired of sharing my body, and husband and I want to share feeding duty equally (ie not with me pumping / being attached to baby). I realize there are significant benefits to BF which I wouldn’t take lightly in the decision just hoped to hear from anyone else who opted out from the start.
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.
What does a Mid level Art Director brand side salary in LA look like? Have an interview tomorrow wanting to know my worth on an in-house team?
First week in Big 4 and everyone is asking me to join their reinvest project… how do I say no? Or should I be taking in as much as possible? Just worried about burn out.
