Dear new freelancers: stop lowballing your rate by charging like you were a fulltimer. You have to pay for your own healthcare, equipment, holidays, sick days AND downtime between gigs.
How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
Anyone get acupuncture? (Chicago) I know sometimes it’s covered under our insurance. Where do you like to go?
Incredibly random question. Does anyone know the specific insurance plan BCG employees get? I believe it’s Aetna. I am looking at getting a surgery in the next few months when I start this fall but trying to plan for if/how much would be covered. Boston Consulting Group
Has anyone started utilizing therapy to make sure that you’re in the happiest/most useful mindset in this demanding job? Do most firm’s insurance cover and will the firm know (worried about stigma)?
Anyone here have experience with secondary insurance? Any examples of how it was useful to you or not worth it at all? Thank you 🙏🏼
Looking for a Gay male doctor in NYC. Want a doctor I can talk to openly about sexual health, especially about colorectal health and reducing risks of disease/cancer in that area.

Haven't spoken to my mother for 5 years. Started to talk to my dad about 3 years ago, but he wouldn't let her know we are talking for fear that she would freak out. My dad has some health issues.
health-ish tip of the day! if it’s a good weather day, opt for a lunch outside! i feel so much better with lunch, coffee, and this breeze. specifically directed to NYC fish because the weather is 💯
Hi 🐠! I started with a health tech startup immediately after my Mat Leave finished and have been so happy since i made the change. We are on a hiring push and I wanted to shoot a link out to the bowl in case anyone is looking to make a change. Perks are amazing (4-5m paid mat leave, 100% employer paid medical, unlimited PTO, lifestyle spending account stipend, ESOP). The biggest pushes are in our tech and product areas. If you or anyone you know is looking to make a change, take a look!
I tried to handle a mental health issue on my own, but failed and am at a breaking point. My work is clearly suffering, but I have no medical history to request FMLA or accomodation. What should I do? Request unpaid, unprotected leave? Get a psychiatrist and try to treat now while hoping to improve at work? Something else? Before you ask: taking a week off to recharge won't work. Self-harm isn't an issue beyond risk of failed self-medication.
Wasted 2 years and good health working at Deloitte, never getting strategy work. Now I'm too burned out to do MBB and will never be able to break into strategy. Fml 😤
How do you handle a spouse who doesn’t understand the stress of being an attorney? I recently switched to a new field of law, still insurance defense, but an entirely different practice. I come home some evenings absolutely drained. Yet my partner expects me to be ready to go for whatever evening activities going on. I’ve tried to explain why I’m drained, but my spouse just doesn’t understand why I’m so mentally exhausted. I don’t know what else to do.
Dk where this belongs but do any of you have life insurance policies on your parents? If so, how did you approach your parents?
Our healthcare practice is hiring! DM if you are interested with your background and positions you're interested in.
My brother just told me that he paid $400 to get a COVID test and he has insurance…is that not wild? I thought COVID tests were all free or fully covered by insurance. This was back in like Feb/March
I Have an interview with kpmg for AAS under M&A, does anyone have any tips on how I should prepare for my interview?
I get more nervous in client meetings when my Director or Manager are present, than if meeting directly with the client 😳
For data science roles, senior (L6) at AWS or post MBA level (specialist track, so same pay as generalists) at MBB? Comp is 20% higher at AWS just to start. But maybe looks like MBB has better upside - solid path to promotion to manager level with solid comp increase. But worse WLB and it's unclear to me whether MBB data scientist on the resume is up to par with big tech data scientist on the resume. Coming from big 4 so I am considering brand so I can do better with future resume screens.
Hey guys, how are y’all doing?! I’m new to the industry, I’ve started as an SD Consultant in march, and since then I did a SD Academy and recently got the S/4HANA Sales 2020 Upskilling certification. However, I can still get another certification, which one would you suggest me getting and why? Thank you in advance!
Should I open a 529 or a taxable brokerage account? Might go get an MBA down the line, but also would hopefully be with a company that would pay for it.
I’m due for a review and possibly a raise. Any thoughts on asking for a raise during a pandemic?
Tax savvy people, i have questions. my employer reduced everyones salary during the first 6 months of covid, but offered a “bonus” (aka back to normal rate) if you were required to travel during this time. How will the temporary salary cut + travel bonus affect my filing? Idk I’m feeling petty
Finally get to ORD....6 hours late and there is no gate for us...sitting on the Tarmac 😳😩😑
Can you precharge your car rental to one car and then change it after returning? Want to use the CSR in case I need primary car insurance, but would get more points on another card. Heard this was
On the bench 3 weeks because rather lame project that was set to start this week was delayed. Just got pinged for a really cool project that starts 4/18 but other project now starts 4/11. Do I wait?
Any Alvarez & Marsal people on here? Two questions: How is the annual performance bonus for managers usually set, and where does it typically fall in terms of percentage / multiple of the base?
Applying to T15 in R2. Currently have a 700 GMAT (43Q, 41V) after taking once. Even if I raise my quant to 47, which would be impressive for me, I’ll still be at a 700 (possibly 710). 3.6 undergrad GPA. Worth retaking? Or just focus on the rest of my applications?
I'm not one to advocate people being fired, but how the fuck are these refs still employed??
Heading into benefits open enrollment and beginning to receive current provider renewal percentage increases (medical and dental) as well as market offers from other providers. Curious what other employers have experienced and hoping to receive successful negotiating techniques. My company is too small to receive claims experience data from the provider. What % increase did you see for a small to mid size company?
