Hi ladies- can you tell me what you pay in premiums for your healthcare? My employer is saying they’re competitive in the market but I don’t think that’s the case and I’d like to negotiate based on that. Monthly premium for you (and fam if@you have kids?)
My wife is asked to take unpaid time off for an indefinite amount of time vs. being officially furloughed. Is this disadvantageous to her since she can’t get unemployment benefits?
How much to expect in Cobra insurance costs? Description just says I have to pay my full premiums, but I don’t know how much ACN pays (so can’t calc full cost). Thinking of switching jobs to a startup and I’ve already met my deductible so might make sense to keep on my current plan. Anyone who used cobra, how much did it cost? Single or family?
To the folks that don’t want to get the vaccine, what is your reason? This seems like a strange hill to die on considering people losing their livelihood over this
Am I too old? Too old to chase a wild dream of living in a beach town? Too old to follow a hunch? Too old to sell everything and start over somewhere else? Some days I feel like I am. With parents in failing health and a grandpa that is lonely most of the time, I feel obligated to stay here. To keep living the life that “makes sense”. I’m 32 single, no kids, own my home, essentially have life by the tail. I live an hour from where I grew up. Feel like I don’t fit in with my friends anymore…
I can’t stand people who are “taking time off” and are online doing work. Like, why?!? Have some boundaries for yourself. No one thinks you’re a hero for doing this.
Am I the only one afraid to take a mental health day because I know the crap show I'll have to return to?
Need some vacation advice. I’m at an all-inclusive that was billed as “luxury”, but food and service are mediocre, the resort is run down, and we’ve had mult instances with other guests making drunken scenes. My wife and I have been doing the all-inclusive route for a while now and I think we’ve come to the conclusion that we need to just go to an expensive, pay as you go resort to get the food, service, and higher caliber of guests. Suggestions on such a place? Carribean preferred. Thanks.
I have PTO scheduled over Memorial Day but I am planning to put my two weeks this week. Should I tack on the additional days to cover the PTO time? Not sure how to handle the awkward timing
Do you have life insurance? What co do you use / how much do you pay / are you happy with them? Thanks in advance!

First year SC at the D federal in enterprise ops - base salary is 90k with MBA, am I getting screwed on comp? I feel like I am.
What laptops does your firm use? Specifically KPMG and other big 4. Is everyone using Lenovos?
I'm exhausted. Our district has scripted everything we do in a classroom--very little wiggle room to slow down when we need to. Kids feel like they're in prison; teachers are deflated. If it isn't a curriculum that's so tight kids and teachers can't keep up, there's the district progress monitoring tests and debriefs that have taken up to 5 days of instruction time--another reason things are so tight. I'm very happy to be retiring in the spring. My 10 hour school days are done.
In Amsterdam for the weekend! Any recs on best hotel to stay at (Marriott preferred) or things to see? Didn’t have much time to research so appreciate any tips you have
If your agency wins a proportionally significant new account, what is a reasonable amount of time client should allow for staffing up and onboarding? Follow up q… how strict is your agency about starting work before contracts are signed?
Any tips for getting my resume seen at FAANG/major tech companies in the SF Bay Area? I’ve already tried going through as many contacts that I know of in the groups I’m interested in. I’m trying to make a jump from PwC manager (8 YOE) in Cyber, Risk & Reg into a project management or program management role on the business side (bus ops or strategy). My background is in information systems and business IT operations/contracting. Microsoft Facebook Apple Netflix Google Airbnb Salesforce
Wanting to apply for a role at LinkedIn, but noticed it asks if you are a Deloitte employee. Are they going to ask Deloitte for information or alert them in any way that I’m applying elsewhere?

First year manager in strategy consulting, what total comp (base, bonus and equity) to expect moving to a tech company (facebook, google, etc)?
the client is being uncooperative and it is stressing me out. just needed to get that off my chest lol
Career question. I want to eventually get to be Director or VP Strategy at a F500, and most of these roles say they require a M7 MBA. I currently have 3 YOE and have the opportunity to exit at the manager level in strategy. Will not having a MBA gate keep these senior levels from me?
I’ve gotten an RFE sheet request for my H1-B petition. Does this hamper my chances of getting the visa ? Because my degree is directly related to my role and is also clearly mentioned in the job description. So I’m not sure why I’ve gotten this. Anyone have experience with the same ?
https://hbr.org/2020/01/what-top-consulting-firms-gets-wrong-about-hiring thoughts? Article mentions case interviews as a poor predictor of performance.
Does anyone have an archive of consulting prep casebooks, courses/programs (think iGotAnOffer, MConsultingPrep etc) ? I am preparing for MBB interviews (unsuccessful last year) and have limited money to spend on these programs. I am willing to swap my case materials (including paid structuring drills course from crafting cases). Thank you!!
Sen. Durbin says he is worried that reviewing 3 provisions passed by House will inundate Parliamentarian. Not sure why they hate EB green card applicants so much. While I understand the lots of opposition to S386 from ROW even though there was no harm provisions, deafening silence from them on showing any solidarity now is just sad.
How to deal with not being staffed on deals and seeing others in your year be staffed? When asking partners directly for work, they refer you to the staffing partners. When asking staffing partners (repeatedly), they say “thanks for interest, we will have something soon.” Weeks and weeks pass by and you’re always below where you should be for billable hours (at this point, very far below). All reviews are essentially perfect and no negative feedback. Extremely frustrating and discouraging.
