Suggestions for car insurance? Finally combining with wife. She was on her parents still (she transfers payments) but she just got in a fender bender that was her fault and they want her to switch
Anyone know what my friend should do in this situation? He started his job 2 weeks ago but last night had to get hospitalized from an allergic reaction. His new insurance hasn't kicked in yet and he thinks he's super fucked financially
I have a VUL with cash value I've decided I no longer need the life insurance associated with this policy. Is there a way to get access to the cash value without owing taxes? If no, how will it be taxed and how to determine how much gain/tax? I paid maybe $20k into this policy many years ago. Since then it has increased in value and also paid the premiums from the cash value. Today it shows $70k cash value. TIA
I really don’t understand the hate against Diversity and Inclusion efforts. I grew up hearing my parents worry about being passed over for promotions and denied opportunities, due to race. It’s a real concern for black professionals.
I'm a young female minority (black) on the Creative side. Curious to know how well you think your agency hires and promotes diversity?
Tryin to see which companies are gay-friendly. How’s your company giving importance to diversity and inclusion nowadays?
Health Advances interview coming up - would love insights into the culture and trends in project work! TIA!
A partner asked me if I was planning on having a 2nd child. We are a small, close firm, so it wasn’t a weird question for us. I told him no, and that it had to do with my husband’s age/health (47 with multiple health issues, I’m 32.) But the real reason is that, while I love my firm, and though it’s clear the partners want to believe they are family-friendly, I felt completely unsupported as a mother once my son was no longer a newborn.

Why is pharma/healthcare unpopular? Have seen a few things in the bowl and just curious!
Do you think gender ratios in this industry would change if HR / talent departments were more 50:50, than 99:1 or so?
Someone in an HR session asked how Diversity and Inclusion retention/promotion efforts could negatively impact people who aren't "diverse." That's a bad look bruh.
Is this place for gender/sexual minorities as well? I'm a gay transgender man, but as I'm white, I'm not sure if I belong here.
Heads of Diversity & Inclusion. Do we never get any Asian persons to qualify for such positions in Corp America??
I would like to ask for a few recommendations of books that is related to mental health or psychology
Have you participated in LeanIn Circles at your firm? Thoughts? Also, let's please keep the gender issue hating comments civil if they come at all
Any other women get so overwhelmed the more we learn about our bodies and waht women have to deal with? Like PCOS, Thyroid, hashimotos, chronic pain, hormone imbalance, leg pain, endometriosis, undiagnosed ADD, birth control effects, PMDD etc. WHY didn’t we learn about this is health class???? Would have saved me so much struggling as adult had I been more educated on my body, what to look for and how to help it😭I hope anyone going through it knows you’re not alone!
Lady 🐠, every time I see one of these lists publish I always puke. For the most part I don't see our most talented and creative being highlighted...

What is an average salary for a technology strategy senior consultant at Deloitte in financial services ?
Got a message saying I could change my United flight with no change fee because of an itinerary change. I checked and there are fully refundable rates I could change to (current rate is not fully refundable). Couldn't I change it to a fully refundable rate then... Get a full refund? What's the catch? Is it that normally you would pay $200 change fee to go to a fully refundable fare? In that case it still seems better than losing your entire fare in the case you really can't make a flight.
Is it recommended to get two full years of consulting experience before looking for a move elsewhere...for more comp (say to another Big 4, industry, attempt at MBB or FAANG)? Already have 8 yoe in the DoD space outside of consulting. And about 16 months of consulting exp

How do you all keep your goals organized? For example, I want to travel more this year, take down my debt, and buy a home. Would I focus of taking down my debt first, then saving—->travel, then simultaneously buy a house? Unsure how to keep track of everything I want to do. Makes me feel like I won’t accomplish any of it because there’s too much I want to do.
How are you guys preparing for next year? I'm thinking of of using Facebook ads to generate seminar invites in hopes of replacing mailing. Doesn't cost much to try and see if I get any benefits

I secured a 2-year lease on my luxury studio during covid but am looking to transfer it to someone new around the 1-year mark (moving in with SO). Would it be reasonable to ask the new tenant to split the penalty with me (we each pay $2400) since they get to keep the low rent rate that I secured? The studio is back at market price now (~$1200 more than my current rent).
Final night of a 3 night stay at a Staybridge in a nice part of a nice city the other night paid completely with IHG points. Came back at 2am to find cockroaches all over the bathroom. Called front desk and they didnt have bug spray nor an additional room. Woke my friend up at 2:30am and my wife and I ended up crashing on her couch. As we left that night night manager said "I actually have a two bedroom but didn't offer it to you because you were only two people". Manager calls wife (continued
Will Deloitte send rejected mail if not selected after first round? I gave my L1 interview on Thursday for SAP FICO. Still haven't heard anything from them.
I have one year of big 4 experience. When I was applying for a company they are asking me for my SAT score. Do you think this is a red flag?
