Switching from commission to salary-only.
I’m considering a less sales-oriented role (supporting some post-sales). It doesn’t pay commission, ie. will have a higher base but less overall earning potential.
Would you consider this? What reduction in cash should be expected going from a variable to fixed compensation? For example, if you made $200k today, would it be realistic to ask/expect $180k (10% cut) + equity to make up the difference?
What does this clause mean below:

I am still under probation and got a job offer from another company. How to reduce Notice Period.
As I am moving up the ladder, I am finding my executive functioning skills are not able to keep up. I struggle to take initiative, organize and complete non project work— BD, training or even connecting with my sponsor partner. I procrastinate & then it is too late. It has gotten worse after becoming a mom. I felt I had to work incredibly hard for my SM promotion compared to my peers. How do you all cope with this? Or is it time to quit consulting?
I’m going through interviews currently and I’m curious y’all’s take-
When they ask you what your expected salary is… do you tell them a number or ask for their budget first? Will I screw myself over by giving them a range and close out any possibility to negotiate??

I have an offer at very small company (30 team) called Jasplabs which works with US clients. They have very less infrastructure. They are currently working on powerbi dashboards and moving on to IBM SPSS. I have one year experience as Data Analyst and i have asked them for 9LPA. If they provide that, it's a almost 3 times hike from my current salary. I am just skeptical on how it will help my career path into data engineer and how much future does SPSS have? Is it beneficial?

Just got in a huge fight with my husband over taking a trip this weekend. He's been saying maybe, not expressing interest, or sandbagging to all my ideas for socially distant trips and its wearing on me. We haven't taken any kind of vacation in 2 years and I'm burnt out at work. At the end of the fight I mentioned going by myself and it made him very angry. I'm worried we might be growing apart.
