It gets mixed reviews. I know several women who no longer participate and did not think it was worth it. This was just before 2020 so things may be different now.

I know some great women who are members of it and have all loved it. Lots of members in their mid twenties.

I’m a member! Just joined in Dec 2021 and loving it so far. Definitely think it’s worth it, it’s been really good for meeting new people in the city and there are so many options for what type of work you want to get involved with (typical volunteer work, fundraising, new membership, etc.)
DM me if you want to talk more!

Thanks! Definitely sounds like the experience I’m looking For.

Im 24 and have been in a relationship for almost 5 years. Used to have a few friends in similarly lengthy relationships but they all just broke up in the last 3 months. Do friends breaking up sometimes mess with your head? They all said they felt like they needed to be single to discover themselves as adults. Which I totally get... but then should I be doing the same...

Found a great 1st floor apartment in a brownstone. I’m concerned about pests (rats, mice, etc) and break-ins. I’ve never lived on a ground level so not sure what to expect. Can anyone give insight or first hand experience?

Received an invite for a superday very quickly after applying to Goldman. Recruiter never sent me the zoom password and then the password failed to work so everything started a full 15 minutes late. Interviews went great including a “they’ll definitely be a second round” but then I received the rejection email the next day. Do we think the tech issues played into that significantly or just my interview not stacking up to other candidates?

My SO lives for being center of attention. He does everything around his friends group and we travel only with groups instead of by ourselves. On these trips, he makes no time for us to do things alone, we don’t have sex and won’t even spend 30 mins with me to talk, cuddle etc. He wants me around him in his friend group but I don’t always want that.
I don’t know how to make heads or tails of this. But I am sad that my partner doesn’t like to spend alone with me.

Has anybody noticed a disparity between the salaries that people report on Fishbowl versus the ones you find in the real world?

Looking at the salaries in the Real Agency Salaries spreadsheet for senior copywriters in NYC, most are in the 100-110k range, which aligns with what I’ve heard talking to recruiters.

But on Fishbowl people report salaries 130k+ for the same role.

I’m making 120k as a senior, which to my understanding was the high end of what a senior makes — or is it not?
