It’s 11pm and someone on my team scheduled a meeting at 530am tomorrow. Based on the meeting invite it’s not super urgent. Plus we’ve already been working 12 hours today. Should I ignore it?

My collection is a few Citizens, a Bulova, and a Treehut, this is my first and only Invicta. I get why Invicta has a bad wrap. You look at their website and it’s filled with adolescent monstrosities. But this diver has the same exact movement as a $500 Seiko and it was under $100. In my opinion, for those of us that would never spend $2,500-$10,000+ on jewelry, this is a well made, timeless watch that feels luxurious on the wrist. Plus it was a steal, for what you get. Tell me why I’m wrong?

I need a Bainer’s help to look at my resume and give me feedback on what areas I should improve so I can tailor my experiences to fit Bain’s expectation from a candidate. Thank you very much!

I’m tempted to write to my experience a year ago when I was fired for whistleblowing. Sure, I’ve had lots of therapy which helped, but something still feels wrong that I keep it all a secret. I wouldn’t want another woman to suffer the trauma I did. How did you deal with it?
