LA has a tough job market. I think the best move is to request a transfer within your firm.

Where are you located now? I was in the same spot except I had the opportunity to move there. Came to the conclusion it’s not worth it to pay a fuck ton for housing, get taxed on my income and the possibly never own a home.

There are jobs in LA in healthcare, but not federal jobs. Make the shift out of federal and you can find work. Good luck

There actually are, albeit mostly DoD focused jobs at Raytheon and Northrop Grumman.

But at this point (mid 20s) is between moving out West or just buying a house here on east coast. My lease is up at the end of the year so trying to figure it all out 😔 Open to really anywhere in Cali or West Coast but I only know people in LA.

Anyone have perspective on how MBB (specifically Bain) benefits are better than big 4? I heard Bain contributes 4.5% of salary to your 401k regardless of any employee contributions, which is great. Any other big perks that make their benefits package superior to others (eg. Big 4)?

I go on maternity leave soon, and my firm offers 16 weeks paid leave, which I plan to fully take advantage of. The only female shareholder in our office keeps pushing me to only take 6 weeks though, because that's what she did. I feel really put off by her comments, but its also making me feel guilty about taking the full time. This is mostly a vent, but if anyone wants to give me some words of wisdom or thoughts, I will take them!

I recently switched employers. I used to have Kaiser Permanente health insurance & loved my doctors. Have been with them for almost 3 years. My new insurance isn’t so great, but because of employer contribution, it’s affordable to go that route. Has anyone paid for health insurance out of pocket? Thinking of just paying for it to keep KP, but it’s a difference of ~$200. Or just find new doctors?

I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?

Anything wrong with this thinking or anything else I should consider?
