Does your company's health plan cover infertility treatment? If so, what is the lifetime cap if any? My company just implemented a cap—admittedly we were lucky before—but this new cap of $30k only covers ~$6k in medical expenses (another ~$23k in prescriptions) which wouldn't even get us through one IVF cycle (extract/implant once).
Applying for jobs and seeing that depression and anxiety is listed as a disability. I’ve been diagnosed for depression/anxiety for 5 years, I take pills and it is not a significant stopper in my life. Should I be marking that I do have a disability? What are the pros/cons from a hiring perspective (I know they say it doesn’t matter but I don’t trust people)
I am currently working as a program financial analyst in a government contracting company and wanting to pivot my career more towards human capital and org development. I am a semester into my I-O master program and looking for a way to pivot for more professional experience. My desired sector would be in the tech, medical, or even doing consulting. Previous mentors suggested to start as a recruiter (there would be a paycut). For someone starting off in this field, what would you recommend?
Dark lip hair…any long term solutions? Tried laser but it did nothing (might have actually made it worse). Sick of bleaching or using depilatory creams. Open to any ideas!
Ill say it again, we should start considerin splitting the Union. There is a minority of the US who wants a mad man in charge. There is very little reason for the majority to abide by this.
I’m starting at McKinsey & Company on Friday as an associate in an NA office. I’ve never done consulting before. Any advice? Feeling pumped but also nervous. I wanted to spend time strengthening my excel skills before starting but I just relaxed instead. Ill probably spend the first week doing that as I train.
My offer was accepted! Yay! But my offer was $45k over listed price. I’m feeling sick! My realtor and I agreed it was undervalued based on recent comps nearby and there’s a lot of development happening around the neighborhood so I’m hoping the house’s value will continue to go up. I love the house and after months of looking I’m so glad they accepted but I just hate how much over asking I’m paying for. Anyone else immediately feel this way? Make me feel better? Or call me an idiot, idk what…

What website host do you guys use? Sick and tired of Squarespace. I want something nice, simple, and easy to customize.
I am SO SICK of junior men not playing ball because I’m a woman. If I’m tough, I’m too tough. I’m nice, I’m emotional. I care too much, but I’m difficult. Can we ever win this? Tired of the cranky, toxic behavior… ironically from people I’m watching out for and taking care of. What gives???
How are you individually managing vaccine requests or mandates at your company? No political stances or medical advice please.
Anyone else think it’s weird / disheartening how many folks comment stuff that isn’t helpful? This hasn’t even happened to me, but I’m so sick of seeing the top comment on posts be “Google is your friend” or other joke replies on a lot of folks asking reasonable questions. Be helpful or keep scrolling.
Can anybody suggest any books or resources to get smart on medical device marketing and/or medical device manufacturing?
Serious question: Men, those seeking a medical opinion from a Dermatologist for hair loss, would you consult with a Dermatologist if he himself was bald? I have one that is rated well (patient reviews) as a Doc, but in his photo he is bald. I'm not sure if he would truly care for my hair loss story. Thoughts?
Have any of you quit to take a break - 3 month or a 6 month sabbatical to pursue other interests or just to clear your head and figure out what’s next. How easy was it to find a job after the break and how did you manage your health insurance? Any other things to keep in mind when considering a sabbatical beyond money?

How have you guys celebrated career milestones? I told myself when I made manager, I'd finally treat myself and buy my first "big girl" bag. I feel like a big baby, but when I saw comp numbers this year, I cried. I haven't been in the mood to celebrate, but now trying to think of alternatives that might be easier on the wallet.
Anybody aware of any recruitment agencies (at senior levels) in the APAC region (Singapore, India) for life sciences? Currently in the US and thinking of moving to another geography for personal reasons post covid
Inexperienced here if you are promoted do you have any leverage to determine your salary or do you usually get just whatever they offer right off the bat
Hi European 🐠 My company is currently looking for IT architects and tech consultants (any level). We’re a boutique with a amazing team culture and really very interesting projects, great learning opportunities (aka we don’t get hired to take over tasks no one wants to do, we get hired to make a difference) + above average comp. Relocation is not necessary, as long as you’re in CET time zone and live close to an airport. DM me for more information! Cheers
MBB or FAANG biz ops?

For those in smaller high growth tech companies, where do you turn for resources on org development, engagement, trends, etc.? I’m moving from a large tech org to a a 150 person company. SHRM does not seem relevant at all. Podcasts, social media followings, etc?
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?
How do y’all quiet the noise in your head that’s telling yourself “they’re only interviewing me to check off the diversity box”? Heading into another round for a VP role that I feel unqualified for. It’s hard to not think this is the classic Rooney Rule at play. Would love any tips.
Just sharing a story. Thanks to months of therapy I have finally become brave enough to quit in May, when my current project is over.
Fishes need advice, I'm a M3 and my Partners have repeatedly told me that I am the strongest candidate for promotion this year, they haven't said it for sure though. I got contacted by Deloitte Digital, and I am being offered a Senior Manager role with a slight bigger pay when compared to my estimated salary after promotion (10k per year). Is it worth changing? what are your thoughts?
Hi, I'm looking for book recommendations on mortgages / financing your first real estate deal. Any recommendations? Let me know if you have any general book recs for first time homeowners. Thank you!
Hey mummas, I'm struggling with how I feel about my team at work. None of them, including my manager, have children and they just don't get it. I'm pregnant with my third and my manager has never once asked me how I'm doing, only ever refers to it in terms of me 'leaving' for maternity leave so he'll be a resource down. Never once asked how I'm coping with juggling wfh & full time caring for my children through covid, and icing on the cake my baby just recently.. (continued in comment)
