Hallelujah, my husband is finally talking about leaving startups and getting a job at an established company that will provide things like benefits, retirement savings, and an HR department.

I've bit my tongue for 2 years because he was really passionate about the product and loved the creativity, but it's been so hard watching the toll of such a disorganized workplace and incredibly incompetent leadership from a 28yr old "CEO" and all of the associated drama.

With all the change happening right now, my one hope is the PwC and other firms will stop treating their staff like they own their lives. I would hope 7 day 90+ hour weeks will go away at some point. I hope starting salaries will be better and bonuses will start being paid out more meaningfully to all levels, and not just management. Our CEO Tim Ryan has been giving sappy calls to all of PwC for several years while quietly reducing benefits and maximizing profits for the partners

I'm an in-house counsel at a national company. Our GC is leaving. I’m the only other in-house attorney, and I’ve only been here for 4 months. I like the job. Previously, I was a 6th-year associate.
The CEO asked me to stay and implied a larger role, but doesn't have a clear picture of what that looks like. Asked for my help in redefining. Even unsure as to timing or whether we'll hire another GC. Questions for Fishbowl: (1) benefits or pitfalls? (2) questions or requests you'd have for CEO?

Have an offer to move to a Fortune 500 company as a finance manager and an offer to move to a small PE owned company ($200m in revenue) as a business strategy manager. Same pay. Small company has me working with CFO/CEO/PE firm directly and large company has more benefits and defined career progression. Also the small company doesn’t have maternity leave and only has short term disability whereas the F500 has 1 month leave + disability. Which to take (kids in 2-3 years)? High impact or security?
