Many brands and agencies are severing relationships with Facebook right now, but do we expect the same from our industry advocacy groups? Sure that money goes to a good cause, but it doesn't sit right that an org that is pushing progress for POC takes money from Facebook.

I ask this genuinely: how do Europeans work so much less? My team collaborates w them a lot and there is so much pto and scoffing at doing more than 7-8 hours a day which I'm obv jealous of and support but their companies don't seem to be that much less profitable. Do they just outsource more? Charge more for less work? Who would buy it then? How do they have less work than we do?

Is there anything i can do to help my friend? She's sweet and caring, but very messy, lazy and tbh i don't think she's a good mom. She's a SAHM, her kids are 5 and 9 and in school/daycare all day, she helps her husband in his business some but most days she doesn't do much besides shopping (including groceries) and making food. When her husband is home the kids and everything else is his responsibility. He's busting his a$$ to provide for the family and to have nice things (see comments)

I am having a hard time deciding if I should begin searching for a new job. My current team is great and I enjoy the work I am doing and see learning opportunities for me within my team (with a few year horizon). I have been with the company for 3+ years and received a promotion with a lower salary than market value with terrible company benefits. Do I search for a new job at market value or should I take into consideration the WFH flexibility that other companies might not offer?
