Head of the group will be in Delhi/ Gurgaon in May. He has a week to explore India with his son. What places do I recommend him to travel to?
Just resigned and it went well, but then my boss came back an hour later saying received approval to give me a promotion and a raise. Super lost at what to do now. I love my current team (and especially the leadership) and there are some cool stuff coming up. But I don’t really love the work. The new job is also not 100% exactly what I wanted but is more exciting has better perks and travel (which I want). Comp is comparable, but current company will be about $10k more + a title bump.

DC ladies! Anyone have recs for a location that you’ve loved living in or even a specific apartment complex that you’ve had a good experience with (feel free to DM me)? Hoping to move to DC in Feb/March but going in kind of blind...I’m pretty flexible but want to stay below $2200 for a 1 bedroom, be fairly close to the city (okay with Arlington area), and would love a really walkable area. Any advice is appreciated!

Help. Just started a longer term in-house gig a couple weeks ago and have very quickly realized it isn’t for me (very off culturally, and very weird team/partner dynamic). How long do I have to stay to not burn bridges? I get that’s the beauty of freelance but I know for longer gigs like this there has to be some grace period.
Anyone considering or obtained a MSL? If so what are the pros and cons? Would it be worth it ?
