for people whose parents might be visiting from India to the States, would you recommend any particular travel and/or medical insurance?
I love my boyfriend a lot and am worried about him. He Ubereats his food every single day for every single meal and it’s stressing me out. He only consumes carbs and his diet doesn’t consist of any veggies at all. He’s only 29 and has been feeling sick and anxious all the time. Plus work adds a lot of stress. He has obviously gained a lot of weight and he has been feeling extremely low. He said that he will start doing cardio everyday but refuses to change his diet. I don’t really care what he
Okay, I’m just going to say I’m deeply ashamed that I work for adam&eve DDB London. IMO it’s become a nasty, toxic environment run by robots. Some of the things I’ve heard this week in how they’ve treated people recently has shaken me. So many people are out sick with burnout. So many people are struggling and we pride ourselves on not giving help. I need out. It’s so elite, jumped up and unsustainable.
What are your biggest hurdles when managing your disability in the workplace? And how do you manage/overcome them? I am newly disabled and work in consulting. Unfortunately the consulting lifestyle has taken a huge toll on my physical health.
My manager thinks that because I WFH, I shouldn't be allowed to take sick time. If I do take a day off, she makes such a big deal over it, and makes life miserable for days afterwards. Problem is, I work in HR, so I'm really not sure who to go to, or if there's anything I can even do.
Honest discussion: If you’re not vaccinated against COVID-19 by now, why not? What would make you change your mind, if anything?
DPW has made the Covid-19 vaccine mandatory for all U.S. offices. Anyone who doesn‘t have the vaccine will not be permitted to enter the premises. Can I please check how the other BigLaw firms are dealing with this? Don‘t want to start a political discussion, but this seems very intruisive to me.
Posting on behalf of my friend and colleague who is an extremely gifted graphic designer and medical illustrator who is looking for freelance creative work. He is reasonably priced and a delight to work with. Here’s the link to his website:
I’m really glad someone made is bowl. I’m sick and tired of all the Cole Haan and Banana Republic posts on Consulting in Style...
Any one here have friends in medical industry (doctors or nurses) who will not take social distancing seriously? I know two that are attending gatherings regardless of working at hospitals all day.
Breakthrough thought: instead of lying and saying your sick, take a sick day for mental health reasons. 99% you need it
Husband resentment. How to deal constructively? It’s been unfortunately simmering for years and boiling now. Before we had kids we agreed I’d be the “primary” parent. Word to the wise, don’t ever do this. Anyway I thought that meant I’d be the one handling most doctors appointments and nanny sick days and random days off school. He apparently thinks it means any care he does when I’m not present is “extra”. If I went out of the house for a work event or to get my hair done he felt (continued)
Bf’s mom is ovrbearing. He got sick the other day and she drove over to take him to her house to “care for him properly” without warning. I asked him to stay here, and good thing he did cuz turns out it’s covid. She comes over every single day for 3 days to bring him soup, even though I made my own huge batch of soup and he took a pic of how full the fridge is. She calls 5 times a day and talks about him like he’s disabled. I’m exhausted from dealing with her; any advice on how to deal?
Do any of you lot worry about agism in the industry? I'm about 5yrs in and thinking about this more and more. Noticed thay most my colleagues, in mutliple agencies, were about my age with 5yrs give or take each way. Its obviously not a new industry, so either people were getting out of it by 35 or not many of them were getting hired past then. Been tellling myself ill learn to code one day to future proof but I've done fuck all so far. Anyone else planning for the future or am I being paranoid?
Started at a new company recently. Got lowballed on the role without knowing it and they’re essentially making me do the stuff of the grade below. I feel like the manager I’m working for is trying to break my spirit by only criticising me rather than acknowledging what I’ve done. I’ve also got a sneaking suspicion they’re trying to weed me out in “unrelated” ways I could never prove since I disclosed my clinical depression and a learning disability to them. I have no idea what to do.
My wife and I together make $240K per annum and that’s approximately $14k/Month after the taxes, medical/dental premium etc. We spend an average of $10K/Month on Mortgage, Property Taxes (Continued..)
Does anyone use an outside service to review and summarize medical records? What do they cost and are they any good? Thank you!

Anyone had any negative effects of rolling off early? (by your choice) Or is it best to just stick it out? (5months left)😖

Soooo at today's morning status meeting our shitty SM was absolutely railing a consultant. Consultant stands up and says, "Fuck you. You're an asshole. I'm done here." And walks out. 😳...👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Have finally gotten past the mindset of wanting to order the most expensive dish just because I can expense it.
