Is Management/Strategy Consulting really worth the trouble? I currently work in risk/compliance engagements in and offered a role at a respected healthcare strategy consulting firm. Caveats are that..
22 yo that just moved to NYC... how the hell do I get Prep? I’m very confused and online resources don’t seem to spell it out very well for me as a young person with no knowledge of insurance.
Got a job offer at Deloitte for manager level. Looking for a summary of benefits. I know 401k match but is there a waiting period, do you have something like pwc’s wealth builder. What is parental leave? What is the phone benefit? (Pwc subsidizes phone and pays plan). Health insurance I assume is crap but who is it through? Any random benefits that stick out to you that other firms might not have?
Anybody know Deerfield Management - healthcare hedge fund? Recruiter reached out to me..

3 YoE in health consulting (generalist w/agile and change management experience), and finally received a secret clearance. But now concerned I'm pigeonholing myself over the next 3 years as I think a lot of health work at my firm that requires clearances are more "butts in seats" My goal is to learn as much as I can over next 3 years (WLB is not a concern). With that said, despite the job security of a clearance, would it be better to consider looking at commercial consulting roles?
Had no idea how good my previous firm’s insurance was until I signed up for Deloitte’s.....

I’m looking if a certain dentist accepts my dental via EY’s Better You “Find a network provider”. If the dentist doesn’t show up, that that mean the dentist doesn’t take insurance or that insurance doesn’t work with that dentist? Meaning if I wanted to ask if my dental insurance would be accepted, would I first ask the dentist in question or get on a call with my insurance provider?
Not a surprise, just a reminder of the mental and emotional health damage caused by isolation and policies that is also wrecking lives
If your agency is not diverse, these are some reasons why: • Internships (either hosting interns, or using internships as a prerequisite) • Degree requirements (either mandating a degree, or hiring based on any unrelated degree just for the sake of having one) • Only young, white recruiters (especially those without bias training)

I worked at a large insurance defense firm for 4 years out of law school. I really enjoyed the work itself, but the hour expectations kept increasing and I was getting burnt out. I decided to try a new type of law and have been at the new firm 3 months. I have way less responsibilities and none of my own cases. I’m worried this was a wrong move/too far of a step backwards. I know I don’t see myself here long term, but I’m not sure how long I need to stay to avoid looking like a job hopper—help!
Massive layoffs happened on Friday, and my CD was let go. He hired me, and we had a great work relationship. Today I just feel lost and weird. He won't be replaced because there's "no budget"...

Hi, where or what types of companies should sophomores & juniors apply for next summer (2022) to recruit for IB the following summer (2023)? This summer BBs wrapped up SA IB recruitment, EBs even earlier, and a fair amount of my friends missed out big time. Also, if a sophomore or junior doesn’t get a finance-related summer internship (I.e tech) and aims for an IB SA or FT position, is it harder to break in? Appreciate any advice and insight, thank you.
