Tech Salespeople: Free resource that shares what Tech companies are paying their salespeople (you have to add your comp to get access). Dat AWS comp tho 👀👀👀.
Vent: it’s really messed up to have recruiters reach out pretending they have a role for you then prying for industry contacts. I’m truly disgusted, don’t pretend to have a role for me then pry for business.
What are HR folks seeing as an average cost for payroll providers? I'm going through demos with Paycor and would like to know what a reasonable breakdown is for payroll, time & attendance, onboarding, etc. How do you measure? Cost per employee? Any help is appreciated!
Hey gang - what non-monetary retention strategies have you seen work? In the COVID-19 world, raises seem unlikely. What are some ways we can reward the good ones?
Just need to vent among people who understand me. So we have a multi-generational workplace which is kinda a good thing, generally, but not lately. With the whole opinion polarization around racism, I feel like I don’t know how to be empathetic, impartial and connect people anymore.
Thoughts on Dentsu Aegis? I've received an offer for a role (promotion) and thinking about whether it is a sound move - especially in this environment. They went through furloughs and pay cuts in April due to COVID. I'd be making the move from EY which is a great company to work with - but there is such a long line up to get a promotion, and for roles I've interviewed for internally I get the good ole - you were awesome and it was rly close, but someone was just a better fit.

Thoughts on underarm Botox injections? I tried everything under the sun and my profuse sweating makes me lose all my confidence and takes up way too much of my energy. AND IT SHOWS ON ZOOM CALLS FOR GOD-SAKE. (Writing this message after I read a debate on an earlier Botox post. And by tried everything I mean it.)
I work in an organization that rewards toxic behavior, and my boss is exactly that person. I started this job earlier in the year, and with wfh in place, I have grown to despise this job that I worked so hard to get. I know I should be grateful that I have something. But I work all hours of the night and feel stuck - if I speak up about the workload, then I’m thought of as incapable and unreliable. But if I don’t, I burn out and it affects my quality of work.
I’ve been on a couple dates with a guy and we got ~physical~ on the second date. Third date is this week but due to COVID reasons I want to know if he’s seeing other people... what’s the best way to ask without thoroughly freaking him out? Usually I wouldn’t care this early but I feel like I need to be aware of his “germ pool” 😂
What are the best companies/industries to work in after transitioning back to Israel? ( if relevant with top MBA and consulting experience) תודה!
Professional services has been doing this for a while, but do you think more companies in all industries will come out of this lookout at remote work as viable long term. The RE cost savings are real.
Has anyone flown on United's Polaris? Thoughts? Trying to see if it's worth using an upgrade certificate for a short flight.
