Hi ladies! Have any vitamins / supplements made a noticeable difference for you? Would love to hear what has worked for you (and what hasn’t)! Interested in any types including ones for overall health (make you feel better/help with low energy, mood etc) and visual benefits like hair/skin/nails supplements. TIA!!
Family law associate. I run a docket of about 40-50 cases and work about 50 hours a week. I currently make about 125K (self-employed, no benefits). Between jury trials for CPS termination cases and the highly adversarial nature of family law, I find this job to be incredibly draining, as I have horrid work/life balance and struggle with constant anxiety. I recently got an offer with a personal injury firm. 110K, full benefits, for a non-litigation/docket manager role. Thoughts?
Hi fishes .Hows GE healthcare for a business analyst? In terms of wb, job security and work environment?
In the start of busy season and my 8 month old goes to daycare 3 days a week. I feel worn down already by work & her (a single mom basically). I was looking forward to her going to daycare today because we had off and I could run errands and just have a DAY to myself.. her school was cancelled. Is it bad if I take a sick day on Wednesday just to have a mental break, alone.. I feel guilty because it’s busy season.. but I feel like I am drowning.
Anyone here at pwc and recently went on maternity leave? How many weeks did u take? And do you accrue pto during that time? I would think you can use disability benefits first and then add the 8 weeks parental leave and then use your pto. Just didn’t know if you still accrue during your paid leave. Thanks
HR recommended I apply for the short term disability program (mental), for which I need to have an independent therapist evaluate my mental condition. An independent therapist quoted me $2-2.5K for the evaluation (their billable rate is $350). Anyone know if this range/amount is normal for assessing a person's mental ability to work? Seems really expensive!
As United Premier Plat, if I make an award booking on an international UA flight using Singapore Airlines points, will I still have the same access to elite benefits like free economy plus seating for me and others traveling with me?
Freelancers -- what health insurance do you guys use? I really need to leave my current place but it's hard to find another gig that isn't freelance to full time. But I also need health insurance.

How to claim the mobile reimbursement at PWC ??What is the budget ? And when did we receive a mail about it
I’m an aide in a structured self contained classroom and most likely positive but have no sick days left. Are admins showing grace and not docking your aides if they exceed sick days. Are autism students cannot tolerate masks and I am toileting and doing hygiene so I am more exposed than say a special education or RTI aide
I just turned 33 and currently have 165k in my 401k. I have a couple questions for folks who are much smarter than me on this stuff.. 1. Is that a decent amount for my age? I know some have more or less but want to make sure I’m doing okay 2. This money is split between three companies (Fidelity, T Rowe Price, etc) as I never rolled together throughout the years when switching jobs. Did I hurt myself a lot by not doing that and should I combine asap?
Stellar review, 113%billable target, sold new engagement (client penetration), and not even a measly raise that would be in line with COL (because I am at top of band)? Im feeling jaded AF now and ready go, hell even a lat move with better benefits would be a better move. Don’t sing my praises with words and no action
Hi - have anyone done medical tests? How did u get a record of the vaccines that we took in India as children
Considering calling in sick just so I can have a ""The Walking Dead" marathon without any interruptions. #teamplayerhere
Faxing - where can I even do this? Have to fax some paperwork for my maternity benefits (short-term disability) and I can’t think of where I could access a fax machine since I’m 100% WFH. Also 7 months pregnant and having mega baby brain so hopefully there isn’t an obviously solution I’m missing 🥴
Anyone working for or have insight into Viking Global? What’s the culture like, work/life balance, etc. I’m currently in a smaller shop where I have lots of autonomy, flexibility and are well compensated (200k base plus bonus/deal participation). I’m lacking mentorships and fear getting too comfortable and for the learning curve to stagnate. The recruiter is telling me 400-500k total comp, but the position would be a steps down in terms of title/autonomy, and far less front facing. Any advice?
As someone who's currently actively applying I wanted to get some insights on large companies vs startups and what are some of the pros and cons for each and which you prefer. Thanks!

Best (worst) mistake you've seen? Q&A during quarterly earnings call in ER, intern doesn't know how to mute so puts tape on mic. Loud ass crinkling during questions. Sr analyst curses out intern
A friend has been interviewing at a company for 4 months. They keep adding in more interviews, saying they have found great opportunities for him, and only occasionally responding to emails. At this point I’m assuming they like him but don’t know where to place him. Is it normal to get this type of run around ?
Just asking for informational purposes. What kind of work Data Engineers do in firms like MBB, Big banks, or Big4? What knowledge areas are tested during interviews?

My parents (different citizenship status than me) are visiting me and I have been trying to get them a booster dose in Pennsylvania. 1. They don’t have any medical insurance in USA 2. They got astrazeneca as their primary vaccines. Any word of advice on how do I schedule their booster dose? CVS/RiteAid just turn us away saying they don’t know what to do.
For those of you who have kids, do you mention that during the interview? I would if they asked why do I want to leave consulting. I normally start with my personal interest, then
Current employer (not ProtonMail) pushed relocation deadline to NYC to end of Feb (from end of Jan initially). Working remote for the time being. Given how things are in the city rn (omicron, winter, lack of housing inventory), would it be better to try shooting for late Feb move instead of sticking with original plan of end of Jan move?
Friendly reminder. YOE alone doesn't determine your salary. Your Experience in those years does. This is why some Juniors are also banging great packages. If you know, you will grow.
