Question: Theoretically, what kind of raise (percentage) or benefits would you need to leave a role where you have *relatively* good work, a good team and great work/life balance, with the consideration that money, location and family/personal affairs aren’t issues? My MD is pushing for me to get a 15% raise in my current role, but I know I’m worth at least 35% more than my current comp.

Hey folx! My SO is filing for unemployment benefits after being laid off due to covid. The issue here is that he lives in DC as of Nov 2019, filed his 2019 taxes in MD and his tech company was based in Los Angeles but he traveled all the time. He filed in DC and got denied since they couldn’t find the job he worked?? Not sure if he should provide his W-2 to DC or just file in MD instead. Any help is appreciated as he’s weeks behind on getting benefits.

Made EP. But I want to be an executive, SVP or managing director. My current FT role offers tuition reimbursement. Wondering if I should make them pay for an MBA. How many agency heads have one?

What are some unique benefits to consider negotiating when facing a promotion to very senior level (ie. SVP, managing director, etc.)? I'm expecting there are some interesting ones...

Can someone explain to me why the government doesn’t just freeze rent and mortgage payments during coronavirus and then provide unemployment to those who need it? Seems like everyone could get a temporary free pass if the fed on down forgives loan payments throughout the crisis, and unemployment benefits / stimulus provided to individuals could be significantly lower without having to factor in rent. What am I missing here?

New to 401k. I’ve only had it for a year. Is this a good mix in terms of percent? Any advice on changing percentage or adding new funds? I always wished I had someone to mentor me on 401k so hopefully someone can mention if I’m on the right track. Much thanks!
