1:1 with my VP

me: I'd love to learn more about the differences between Director/Group director/VP....based on that recent situation with "Candace", I'm thinking that she was focused on something I don't have insight on, so if I can understand where she's coming from I can prevent another mixup 😇

VP: *big sigh*...it...it wasn't you. Candace was wrong. I guess something happens when people get promoted to director, their egos explode and they don't admit when they're wrong 🤷‍♀️

I think you just needed the second part. The first part felt confusing, like it needed more context.


That said.. YUP. And the higher up you go the less you care about how what you want is done, just that your minions do what you ask.

In which city should I plan to look for Jobs in Technology roles (Like Product manager, program manager) or Tech consulting?

Which cities have better opportunities for such roles? Please give me multiple aspects to consider.

Which city has prospects for growing at rapid pace?

I personally don't prefect fast cities like Mumbai.

I am living in Gujarat. I don't want to work in Mumbai and NCR.
So, consider other cities like Bangalore, Pune, Indore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, GIFT city etc.

In weird spot. I have a side hustle and love it. The spouse? Not so much. In fact, it often causes many arguments and the lack of support is stressful.

Recently, years of hard work paid off w/ a production deal. I should be excited, but the first thing she asked was how much $ I was planning on sharing? I was always planning on taking us on a trip and putting money down on a home, but this entitlement feels wrong. Especially since its not something she supported in the first place.

Thoughts?

Today our Director said something along the lines of, if we aren't in shape, we are giving the company a bad look. That everyone should step up in terms of professional appearance. While agree with the general sentiment of exercise, I'm not sure it landed well because everyone is different. What do you guys think about this?

I work in seasonal hospitality. We have year round managers, icluding myself, and several seasonal managers. In 26 weeks, our seasonal managers make more than I do in 52 weeks. I do full cycle recruiting (200 seasonal workers) when the operation is shut down and various other HR projects to gear up for the next season while the other managers of the kitchen and restaurant are sipping margaritas in Florida. Am I just being bitter and jealous or does this seem completely wrong to anyone else?

Hey all! I have a quick question. After putting my two weeks, the partner of my now ex firm met with me having investigated my new employer and it’s personnel. They even went so far as to name all of the partners of my new employer and ask me which one I spoke to. They even demanded i justified my departure and hinted two weeks was too short of notice. It was a very uncomfortable experience. Is this normal in a corporate setting? The entire conversation felt like one huge hostile guilt trip.
