I’m currently a maxed out GS-15 Step 10. Masters degree is Electrical/Computer Engineering, but now a Program Manager for a high visibility area. I have 10 years to reach full retirement age (57).

Anyone else been in, or is in this situation?
I am a 17 year seasoned outpatient PT in Tampa FL who is the current head PT for my clinic. I do marketing, admin duties as well as staffing. I haven’t gotten a base hourly salary raise in 8 years! (I do get a percentage of profits but due to Covid, haven’t gotten one in 2 yrs). I do not get 401k, con Ed or health insurance benefits.
Current salary is $85K. I am getting very frustrated that this has not increased even after asking. Thoughts? What to do? What do other seasoned FL PTs make?

Debating on whether or not I should get myself a financial advisor. I’m in my early 30’s, about to take a 30% jump in pay, and want to make up for lost time when I wasn’t able to save as much as I wanted and start investing. But I’m clueless! I plan to contribute more to my 401k/rIRA but also want to invest for some short and long term goals like buying a vacation home in 8-10 years and future children’s college funds.
Would an advisor be worth the cost?

I just got promoted to Director and received stocks
- FMV of stocks is $3.00.
- Company revenue is 200M
- Valuation of company = 1Billion (Unicorn)
- Series E recently
- Plans of IPO = 3 Years (2026)
- Total Stock options = 6000 (3000 every year)

I love my kid so much. He was with me throughout all of elementary but has been at the middle school for the past 3 years. He had only a handful of kids he knew from our elementary. He made all of his new friends on his own. I have been meeting them one by one and am sooooo impressed with their character, manners, interests, and grades. He chose his friends wisely! Anyone else experience this?

I’ve been a lawyer for a month and a half and every month my firm gives out a detailed income statement. It shows how much it costs to have us and how much we bring in. I’m routinely netting a loss for the firm. I try not to get too down on myself but seeing it every month is starting to get to me. I guess I should reach out to partners to see if I should be worrying about this, but it seems so embarrassing. Anyone experience this in the same stage of career?
My EOY review is coming up. Here I plan to lobby for a promotion/raise (been at company for 1.5 yrs). Some backstory: During my hiring process I was told by my now boss and VP they were also going to hire a senior engineer to help me along. They never hired such senior engineer because I have over performed and do more than they thought I could (have been told this in 2 performance reviews). Thus, is it fair to ask for a raise and promotion to Senior engineer?

Hello! I need advice. I have 5 years of digital marketing, project and team management experience. I’ve been doing design work w/o realizing ux/ui was a career since the beginning. I didn’t keep record of those projects but I created a portfolio to show proof of knowledge/skill but it’s not lengthy. I know how to use design software, wireframe, prototype, and I do feel like a lot of my knowledge/ skills are relevant. Should I be going after Jr, mid or senior lvl UI roles?

Does anyone have any articles/resources/studies that prove common design legibility concepts? I.e. using multiple columns of text in an article vs spanning an entire width of page, or using images for visual resting space, or using varied type/design treatments to create hierarchy. I’m encountering content marketing folks who “consider themselves designers” and are directing me in ways that create walls of text. Apparently my ten years of design experience (and common sense) isn’t enough.🤯

(1/2)Has anyone ever had their contract end early with no warning? I was hired as an “agile social designer” for a big box retailer as a freelancer. The gig posting said it was a couple months (until the end of june) but when I interviewed they said they were actually gonna extend me until next February. Anyways now they’re saying the whole agile team may be eliminated and I didn’t get any new work assigned this week… I’m kind of freaking out bc I thought I’d at least have until next month.
