Hey guys IPG Health is hiring across all agencies under the FCB Health and McCann Health networks, all levels all departments! Hit me up for any info! Healthy company and growing like crazy 😉
Morning rant : Why do we pay 50 percent marginal tax ? Healthcare was biggest argument and justification for me! But look where we are : No testing, no rapid kits or medical support for most cases and companies like shoppers just making a killing with 200 per PCR test which is available for free in US and many countries? Even US is giving free rapid kits, tests and N95 masks; the support in Europe is much better.
Working for a financial/insurance company?
Assault survivors...where do I go to get quality therapy in NYC...my EAP sent me to bottom of the barrel. Insurance won’t cover any specialists. I’ll do anything to get help some real help right now.
Anyone been to LA recently? I’m thinking of working from there for a couple weeks - I take covid very seriously, will very much social distance and wear a mask, but just curious how the 10 day self quarantine rule actually works. Does anyone actually track it or hold you to it? Not looking to break any rules, I have no plans of going out or being around ppl, but also don’t want to be arrested just for walking on the beach
Anyone see a registered dietician without having a very pressing health issue (as in, stomach issues or obese)? I just lack the willpower and focus to really effectively control my eating, I’d love to have someone to hold me accountable and help identify specific triggers I have personally to lose like 15-20 pounds. How did you go about finding one?
Keep seeing unmasked people at grocery stores I shop at, in Brooklyn. Continually. I’m thinking to speak with the management of the stores and telling them that if they don’t enforce mask rules in the store I’ll have to report them to health department. Area isn’t the most safe, so some concern of reactions against me there, but this shouldn’t be acceptable.
Anyone ever done the gut health / microbiome test? Whether with a doctor or a take home kit? There’s very obviously something unbalanced in my gut / digestive system and would like to know if these tests have been helpful for anyone!
Does anyone have Liberty Mutual for car/home insurance? I always get the AICPA sponsored letters in the mail and wonder if they are any good to deal with.
People say aicpa life insurance is good. Although the rate is low for period before 45, rate significantly increases after 45. Looking at policy genius, regular quote for 30 year old 30 term 1M contd
Anyone getting a free day off for “mental health day”? My sisters work gave them a day to use for this purpose with deducting vaca/sick....she’s at an insurance co. I think it’s very appropriate.
What percentage of your take home income is allocated to car fees ( payment/ gas/insurance)? Im trying to get an idea of what is reasonable
Any recommendations for a breast reduction surgepn in NYC. Im a 34H and i am so miserable. I want to find a good doctor though. I went to the one doc and he was like we may or may not need to do x. But then if we do it you won't be able to breast feed. So trying to avoid situations like that. (I also got insurance approved - cried tears of joy)
My doctor told me that I have depression, anxiety and paranoia and put me on treatment for it today. I’ve known for a while but had never been diagnosed or sought help before, so I just coped with it as best as I could, until I couldn’t anymore. It’s tough to digest having a medical professional make it an official diagnosis. Feels like I’ve unconsciously stigmatized mental health on myself and have evaded addressing it. I’m feeling optimistic, just a bit shocked. Sending love
Do we need a bill / law that mandates prices be communicated to patients BEFORE providing medical / health services? "Sign here saying you'll pay for co-pay / deductible / out of coverage." "How much will that be?" "You'll get a bill in about 6 weeks."
Singles best piece of health advice for high performance? Anything you incorporated into your diet, workout, etc. that makes the biggest difference? For me, cutting out sugar makes me feel great.
When did you know it was time to take medical leave for mental health? I can barely get out of bed most days.
Looking to focus a lot on my personal development next year. Taking care of my mental health, exercising and losing weight, being more mindful. Everything in that general vein. Has anyone got any advice for actually achieving it, and/or tools for doing so (apps etc)

How does this sound?
Ah now it did.
What’s the toughest lesson consulting has taught you? Been in the game for 6 years and learned this year the hard way that life ain’t fair
Best life lesson I learned from Deloitte: don’t ever, EVER sign a contract that demands you return the sign on bonus if you leave within a year. I thought to myself, “I would never leave a company within a year”, but I grossly underestimated how much I could hate a job.
I'm not a rich man, but is 250k a lot of money? Sure in some parts yes, but not in major cities. If u make that much on ur own, ur doing well. But it's not hard to make that with dual income. (Cont.)
If you've ever ________, you might be a consultant.
For haters here: I mean everyone would love to work for FAANG & live in San Francisco. The only reason you are not doing it is because you can’t get a job there. True?
On a transcon flight; had my seat fully reclined so that I could actually extend my arms long enough to type on computer. Man behind me asked my to raise my seat so that he could work on his CONT
+500k homeless ppl in the US, yet ppl care more about refugees from other countries being admitted to the system to receive US govt assistance. Why aren't we this passionate about our own citizens?
What’s the worst career advice you’ve ever gotten? How did it work out? For me, it was when my old engineering manager told me that an MBA would be a waste of time after I asked if he’d recommend the company to sponsor me. This was back in 2013 when oil was high and times were good. Now in 2021 I’m set to start a new role as VP and he’s been demoted, laid off, and has seemed to hit a career ceiling.
What was your base salary when you started out in consulting and what is it now? (Include ages)
Not from US so don’t get how can people be so rude to others. Racially motivated or not, I’m curious were they brought up by their parents to be insensitive to others, be entitled? What jobs do these guys do, where do they goto school, who are these people in real world?
This woman literally just took the wrong transcontinental 1st class seat, my seat, bc she preferred it. And would not get up. FA instructed her to move, nothing. To avoid further delays, we gave up.
