Is it normal for a Partner to tell me “you know this will delay your promotion by 6 months” a day before my STD for mental health reasons? (P.S. He assumed I took the leave for mental health reasons although I never mentioned that to him). He also said “people like you leave and never come back so make sure you talk to your sponsors before making any decision, there are people who are excited to work with you”.. the conversation is on replay in my head

A&M folks, how good (or not) are your health / dental/ vision benefits ? How much are out-of-pocket expenses for families? Also how is the 401(k) match?

Have any of your agencies taken steps towards acknowledging and addressing mental health issues in your office? Care to share, good or bad? Hoping to get ideas to take back to our leadership. Thanks!!
Is a pet insurance needed/ worth -if my pup is from a responsible breeder (and so hoping potentially less health issues)? If so - any recommendations? Thanks..
Unpopular opinion, crucify me as you may: Bacon is overrated. I mean, it is pretty good. But it's way overhyped, as like the best thing ever. I'm no health freak, but for how bad bacon is for you, it just ain't worth it 🤷♂️

CD who decided to try strategy for 1.5 yrs. Was recruited for the role I am in, but really unhappy. The role is not what it seemed and moved from non-health to health for it. Advice on how to go back?
Thoughts: my colleague passed away this week. He had no bank nomination or will. His personal savings gone to the state and not his family. Observations: Beef up your life insurance
Since partners no longer get subsidized health care coverage from their firms, do any partners purchase health care through the aca marketplace exchange? Even without a premium tax credit from the exchange, it would have to be cheaper than paying full price via the firm’s plan unsubsidized. I heard that some get coverage thru a spouse’s plan, but what if the spouse’s family plan from their employer is really bad? Curious to hear about options out there.

My Havanese puppy seems to accidentally puke / have loose stools at least once a week. No problems prior to those one of those incidents and she seems active and normal right after that as well. We are super strict about her food portions, meal schedules and try to ensure she doesn’t eat crap on her walks. What am I missing here? Is this normal behaviour amongst puppies? Any tips to improve her digestive health. Thank you! 🙏🏻
Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
I woke up and had a rush of anxiety thinking about my family and future. Dad isn’t working. Sister can’t find a job. Moms health is deteriorating. Two mortgages. Job security. Whew child

About to get an offer to move to a health agency. Anyone else make that move? How was it? I’ve lost major interest in the hustle glorified at traditional agencies, and have a fam so need better WLB. Realizing regular agencies aren’t made to work around family life…more like the other way around. Even when setting boundaries you get comments and pressure…working til midnight every night to “make up” for having to log off between 6 and 9 every night isn’t a good balance for me.
Being headhunted for a few portfolio ops / research roles at growth equity firms. Thoughts on prestige for MBA admissions? Is it worth it to move or stay in consulting (kearney / s& tier)
What are the exit opportunities for big 4 M&A tax? Any chances to go to investment bank M&A or retiring as a big four partner is the best scenario?
I’ve put on about 20 lbs during covid lockdowns and haven’t lost a pound since. My SO loves me but (and I agree) has always been big about us keeping appearance and weight in check, first for our health but also for overall attraction. His take is if a disease somehow made me put on weight there’s not a comment he would make but in this case it’s really bad exercise and diet habits. I don’t disagree but I’ve never been so far from my target weight that I just don’t know where and how (cont)
I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.

Recent graduate (class of 21) from the UW business school. I came across an open FT associate position at Strategy&’s deal strategy team and was wondering if anyone from S& would be willing to chat? I’m really passionate about consulting and have a major interest in the PE vertical so this was a huge surprise. I’ve been prepping for a couple of months now and would really appreciate the help/opportunity! Would send over credentials but not sure how! PwC Thanks!

Hey, incase you are interested in SALESFORCE referral for any openings , send me your resume and details at email@example.com Full Name : Phone number: Country phone code: Email id : Linkedln link : Job id : Why you are fit for this role:
At my client site 5days a week (gps) , and home office has little to no consulting presence. Rolling off around August and looking for a supply chain related project (commercial). Advice!
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
