How much do you tell your significant others about your client? Seems harmless but my girlfriend works for a rival firm and I always wonder if she could/would use that information if we broke up.

Has anyone ever not received feedback on a project?
I'm on a project right now that I never really receive feedback although I'm still getting assigned work.

Currently making $75k with 3yoe at Deloitte (I know!). Will be promoted this June and probably a minuscule bump to $85k then.

Interviewing at Fever (entertainment startup) for a project manager role. Thought the company’s idea is interesting and is having rapid growth but overall entertainment industry is unstable from time to time and Glassdoor reviews mentioned that the turnover rate in some team is high. Since the role is highly strategic, it shouldn’t be a problem for me to exit to a strategy role in other fields later if it doesn’t work out. Any thoughts?
