Here’s an out of the box question: How do you get out of the insurance industry? I’ve heard that the longer you stay in, the harder it is to get out. Are there any other industries I can transition to?
I also have so many other interests like yoga, art, nutrition, real estate investing… I’m 25 and would ultimately like to be my own boss at some point.
I work for a huge company for 11 years and haven’t been happy for a while. I feel emotionally attached to it because of great benefits, my growth (had multiple roles) and overall culture. Leaving it feels almost like ending a marriage (nuts, right?). Have you ever felt this way about your career before? I’ve seen people leaving and regretting it and seen people leaving and telling me there’s life post XYZ company.
I’d appreciate any thoughts and reading your pov.
What is the firm policy for paid parental leave at D? Read it is 16 weeks. Any eligibility criteria ? What’s the catch?
I have $100K liquid cash over and above maxing out 401K, HSA, College fund, investments in Index funds and emergency fund. I plan to leave $25K for contingency. Of the $75K is it wise if I purchase I bonds worth $30K (myself, spouse, kid)? Current combined rate is 9.62 Does anyone foresee the interest rate drastically reducing? I don’t intend to cash them out before 5 years.
Prosecutor here considering career shift. I’m a first year DA making $87k in CA and have very good work/life balance + benefits. I’m passionate about the work but honestly need to make more to buy a house/someday raise a family in OC area. Any former prosecutors here feel the same way? Any insight from those in private sector re: higher pay but (possibly) worse hours? Considering L&E or plaintiff PI
I’m waiting for my background check as I accepted an offer for Remote Licensed Insurance Customer Service Rep. While I’m a 1099 for my current role, I still haven’t told them I am leaving for a full time role that can change my life. It’s a small agency, and I’ve gotten close with the director. She’s the employment reference I gave; I’m a nervous that when they receive the call to verify employment, my days will be difficult. I’d hate to be let go before I start with LM. Thoughts?

I'm a relatively new financial advisor and my office is sticking me with a lot of trade shows/summer block parties/benefits fairs. Any tips and advice or do's and don'ts for those types of events?
Has anyone taken a job with great medical benefits but no dental or vision coverage? Did you find coverage on your own?
Got approached by another agency (media) regarding a Director role. Somewhat nice client and benefits +30%, but when the offer came, salary and responsibility were as discussed but title downgraded to Associate Director.
Hiring manager told me he got pushback against my years of experience, but they still went ahead with salary and task description of a director. Should I consider it?
26.5 weeks pregnant and feeling this lower abdominal pain (under my belly button). It comes and goes. It’s coming in waves and goes away but I can feel it’s there waiting to flash another wave, if that makes sense. I read online that women go through Braxton Hicks contractions. Is that how they feel like? Baby moving as usual so I know (guess) is fine.
I have my Bachelors & I accepted a job at a starter up healthcare tech company which is growing. When I accepted the position and salary I honestly didn’t know what to expect or how to negotiate a salary pay. I accepted the job and salary because it was more than my old job and I needed to get my foot in the door. I’ve been here for 3 months and I have found out I am getting underpaid than what other project coordinators are getting paid. 10k less than them. How should I ask for a salary adjust
Received a job offer. Was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on a concern I had about it. It's an entry level position, and I don't have much experience. The billables are 2040 a year. For billable hours in civil litigation and insurance defense, is 2040 hours for a 1st year associate on the high end in this field for a small or midsize firm? It seems like most attorneys I know have minimum requirements of around 1800. The compensation is around 80k a year.
Brand new (like, just-had-a-kid new) mom here. Life seems manageable with the baby sleeping much of the time. It gets worse from here doesn’t it? I’m scared 😱😱😱
Makkaley, with the transportation reimbursement policy - chennai la enga venalum suthalam eh enna ? Illaa, verum office location pona Mattum dhan eligible eh?
I’ve been back from Mat Lave for 6 months and recently sat down to meet with my new Supervisor to discuss future opportunities for advancement and express that I’m hoping to have a salary review soon.
He told me he agreed I was undervalued when reviewing my comp and mentioned a few times now that my maternity leave was a factor in me being underpaid - what do I do I feel heartbroken and discouraged? I feel so stuck - I love my work but how can I feel ok every day knowing this?
Does anyone do math stations in class? How often, what are the benefits you love, what are the drawbacks? I would love to try but am afraid of chaos.
Houston: Insurance associate. DM me!
Hi. I’m an exempt employee (my boss’s only W-2 employee) and have two weeks of PTO. He’s making me use that for my physical therapy and doctors appointments, and I just got diagnosed with something related to my I jury (not work related) that could qualify me for temporary disability. How do I approach this and can I get fired for this? I have to take care of my body! And he’s insanely rigid, cheap, stubborn, and at this point I don’t even think he cares about me. I’m a very hard worker!
In my biglaw team, partners mostly speak in court and draft crucial subs - my associate 2.5 years in has her first hearing next week as first chair (it's a small interloc). Is this normal?
I am in a relationship for 3.5 years now. .
We both love each other. Used to enjoy the company emotionally and physically. We took it bit slow as it was 1st relationship for both of us.
For initial years we tried various stuff on bed and we both enjoyed it thoroughly.
And finally last year after 2-2.5 years of dating when we were comfortable enough, we decided to have sex.
But, after many unsuccessful attempts we discover that she might have medical condition vaginismus

Does anyone have an editable copy of the Florida non resident petition for summary adjudication? Trying to settle a Disney timeshare for my sister in law who died and my wife is administering the estate. Timeshare going to minor children (also in our custody). Florida law library gave me a large pdf with SAMPLE watermarked across all pages and I wouldn’t want to submit that as a formal filing.

Do you get any training when promoted to senior associate/reviewer? I received my salary adjustment last Thursday. Friday, I was cc'd on an email to an associate that I am supposed to start reviewing her Q4 work. I barely know how to prep Q4 calcs myself and now they want me to start reviewing? Been with the firm 1.5 yrs. No prior discussion with my manager about this. Got more emails today about reviewing more work starting next week.
