I am currently covering for someone on paternity leave. This means I've doubled the Sales Managers I'm supporting as well as the clients I'm supporting. I don't mind doing the work but I'd like to ask to be compensated for the increased workload. Has anyone done this? If so, how did you go about it? I'm relatively new to Tech so I'm not sure how to start the conversation.

Hi all reposting here in case I get some help.
I've go an offer for a position as an SRE at Google Dublin. Even though I'll be losing some base salary, and a level from where I am at Microsoft, I'm considering moving. However, I was hoping somebody working at Google in Dublin could share which benefits you have to compare with (currently at Microsoft we have health insurance, life insurance, pension plan, subsidized meals).
Also, does anybody know if Google Dublin pays for the on call?
CONTRACTORS: I have a quickfire round of questions because I'm really trying to get back into setting good habits now that I'm consulting full-time again.
How do you typically go about preparing your day?
1) What's your process?
2) What are some MUSTs you prioritize each day to maintain your work-life balance, mental health, etc. (i.e., phones/email notifications off after X PM; no work on the weekends, etc)
3) Must haves/dos for productivity and time management?
Thanks in advance!
Anyone has experience negotiating a medical bill with MGH. I got some blood work done and was sent a bill of 1800. The bill was 2700 but negotiated rate with my insurance is 1800. I got the exact same blood work done in NC 2 years back and it cost me <200. My insurance said i should have gone to labcorp. I am new to Boston and didn't know this. MGH says prices are higher as we are a teaching hospital. It's just open loot and does not make sense. Anyone dealt with a similar situation.
I am in the customer service and sales side of travel insurance, and I am looking for a new job, possibly in another field. A much larger company purchased us 2 years ago, and over the last 6 months I have lost 2 designations, one as an advocate, which was my most rewarding. I was told that it had nothing to do with my performance. Any suggestions on how to obtain a position in another area? Such as going from strictly customer service and sales to advocate and claims? Thanks

I really need help from everyone here: I am a tax senior, and I have offer from both EY and MNP. I was at Deloitte earlier and I am not sure which to pick. Same package/benefits. While EY is a great firm and the partners are amazing and all experiences of Big4 and it's resources, MNP has this charm of a Canadian firm and great culture. I don't know much but people say MNP is a great organization. The people I will work with are all amazing to speak during interview. What to do now?
Pregnant IBanking Director who will be a single mom needs advice on negotiating maternity leave - I have been with a boutique Ibank for 10 hrs and wish to ask for paid maternity leave and flexible WFH for another 3 months. Can you share any precedents form the industry? Our company policy is terrible (12 wk unpaid) and I wish to use my leverage to advocate for changing the policy for all future parents, not just for myself. Many thanks in advance.
Is the Workday Payroll Certification really worth it?
Especially considering you can make a similar amount of money doing the other core HCM modules without having to learn about the Practitioner side of things in Payroll.
Also, if you want to exit to an internal role, 9/10 job openings that I see do not even list payroll as a requirement but you'll always see the core modules+ Absence & TT.
Please share your thoughts.
Anyone resigned bc of no support/burnout taking a toll on mental health, and in the convo your firm acts as if you never asked for support?
Better exit opps:
EG/VC & MA or benefits (no specific specialization; would try to stay generally well rounded)?
Any other considerations? Torn between the two. Trying to make partner as well, so any considerations there would help (WLB, predictability, job safety, etc.)
Will a pinched nerve under your shoulder blade, and elbow ever get fully recovered? Has anyone's? As long as I continue to stay working in tech on the computer, I feel like it's just gonna stay this way. Hate to even think this, but I feel like I might need to step away eventually. Even with PT for the last 3 years, I'm still in pain, numb and uncomfortable. On weekends now, I'm intentionally staying off the computer and my shoulder is less tight, but once M-F comes around, it's a cycle

When starting a new case, I always feel a bit insecure/ uncomfortable for the first weeks, worried if I can perform, if I will get a long with the team and get a good rating in the end. How do you deal with this?
I keep hearing about huge hiring sprees at agencies right now. Is that still the case for Jrs and Mids? Or more senior talent? I got out of school a week before lockdown and freelanced the whole time up until a month ago. Now FT, but honestly, took it just for stability while I still look. Still trying to find FT at a good shop.

Hi all - looking for some advice. I’m currently a manager at T2 (Deloitte, ACN, etc) & looking to exit into life sciences/healthcare related work. I have a background in biology/biochemistry (undergrad major from top 10 uni) and have mainly worked in change management/cloud & tech implementations while in consulting.
Where do I even start looking for exit ops/what are possibilities? Would love to do healthcare tech work, but not sure how my skills translate
