I hear all the criticisms about the inadequate knowledge base for a sixth year associate.

Just got offered a remote job with a startup for $75k base + 2k stock options, and benefits (100% covered insurance, wellness, 401(K) (no match 🥲) and tons more, BUT I enjoy the company I’m at and the people.

How do you rise above toxic colleagues?
They divide people, fail to act, blame others, undermine and insult. They are the problem, it is known. If I get drawn in, I end up looking junior and petulant.
Not sure what the right bowl for this is, but healthcare question.
Received services from a healthcare provider that I believe are reasonably classified as routine, preventive care. However, the provider charged for the services as a problem-oriented office visit. Because of the procedure code used, our health plan does not cover the costs of the visit.
Anyone have success contesting the procedure code used in medical billing, and willing to share tips?
I’m looking for a new job!! It has been impossible to build a good relationship with my manager, he isn’t transparent with me and never provides any constructive feedback so I have no idea how I’m performing. I recently asked for a raise since I completed all my assigned projects for this year plus a few that I took on due to resignations and was denied with no reason. I’m so checked out and looking for a new job and manager that I can learn from and will help me grow, any help is appreciated!

Hello my sharks 🦈 from IBM 😇
I have a query with regards to HRA deduction that we can claim as non taxable.
So in my offer letter, it is written that max 50% of basic salary can be used for house rent.
My basic salary is 7,00,000. So how much deduction can I show for HRA, considering the The Income Tax Act Section 10-13A?
I want to reduce the tax as much as possible through HRA, but I believe there is a limit upto which deductions will be considered.
Thanks in advance guys🙂
