    I’m wary of “vendors,” consultants, and the like in the benefits area. I see them mostly as salesmen of various types.

    I’d rather get my advice from a source such as Vanguard or Schwab, where sales incentives will play far less of a role in any advice received.

    Just IMHO.

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
