Does anyone have co workers who brag about their salary?
And brag about what they can afford and what is in their bank account? And how did you handle it? I know this sounds like an odd question but my co workers constantly talk about money.

Should I tell my manager I’m about to go through IVF, as I can imagine I’ll have a lot of doctors appointments.
My company is very flexible with appointments and working from home up to twice a week when needed, but should I give them a heads up? I’m not the type of person to tell my manager my personal stuff but they’re very laid back and I’ll probably need to be in and out for appointments.

Company/firm exaggerating its size, not what they claim to be?
Hi everyone - I just interviewed with the CEO/Director of an immigration law firm. The CEO said some pretty impressive things: ex. that the firm is the largest in the state next to a really well known national firm; that their lawyers handle 100 files/clients each; and do 30 - 40 visa lodgements each a month; that their lawyers have the best, world-class support staff and resources, etc.
He also mentioned that his firm already has an office in my city, but the recruiter told me that they do not yet have an office here. He also said that the role would be full time and onsite but again the recruiter told me that the work would be remote since they do not yet have an office here. Also, he explained that he wants his firm to eventually be a law firm, which means they're not yet a legally incorporated practice.
I called the lawyers admission office / law society in his state and they told me that the CEO did have a practice certificate but that was in 2016 and he doesn't currently have one.
I tried searching for more information on his firmn online just to familiarise myself more with the firm but couldn't get much information outside of their website. Their website does not actually list the lawyers on their legal team, or any one for that matter. It says they have offices all over the country.
I checked the CEO's LinkedIn profile and it's extremely brief, quite incompete actually. Doesn't even have a profile photo or full name on his profile page. Graduated in 2011 then worked in a big law firm for 2 years before starting this current firm.
Finally, I looked up the firm's reviews on GlaassDoor and there are just 2 reviews on there - both extremely negative aginst the firm (like, "avoid at all costs").
Are there any red flags I should be seeing here? Is it common for companies/firms to exaggerate their size, status, etc? If I get another interview, should I ask these questions? I emailed the recruiter to tactfully and discretely ask more details about the firm.

I’m so miserable at my current job, really hoping I’ll get this job I’m interviewing for.
Every single day I’m miserable at my current job. The company is toxic, Im overworked and my talents are underutilized. I wanted to quit so bad right away (within the first month) and Im now here for 7 months and it eats me up inside daily. Im taking a month long medical leave soon (this job has also made me physically ill and worsened all the health problems I have). But I can’t afford to just permanently quit. I’ve been looking for other jobs and finally got referred by a friend for this job that sounds so ideal for me. My friend/previous co-worker is the hiring manager for this role as well. I just finished the 2nd interview and hopefully going to the 3rd and final one. I’m so scared I won’t get this job as I really need it.
Any tips on how to stop thinking about this job and how to not get so invested?
