I was approached by a recruiter for the role of EA to the CEO. It sounded very much like one of those 24/7 roles where you are supposed to drop everything you are doing at the drop of a hat to cater to him,his wife and children,including traveling to NY and LA with little to no notice. The pay wasn't bad but when I went to Glassdoor the reviews were dismal, especially in regards to the CEO and his volatile personality.They also spoke about toxic workplace including racism and sexism. If it had been just a few reviews, I would have continued with the interview process but there were way too many bad reviews and so many red flags, including high turnover rates.I asked the recruiter what had happened with the previous EAs and he said one had relocated to another time zone and the last two " hadn't learned from their mistakes". My gut was screaming not to go forward with the interview process and I was very honest with the recruiter and told him exactly why I wasn't interested. That's my experience with SBE.Never actually worked for them so it may or may not be of use to you.Best of luck!

Im getting those vibes too. Thanks for the help!

Kind of a weird question, but if you have status at hotels is there any way you could finagle either free or discounted multi-day parking for hotels near an airport? Don't want to have to rely on ride sharing from my home if there is a stronger likelihood of rides near a hotel airport parking space. I am speculating that it still turns out cheaper than hotel parking. This is not for work so I wouldn't be able to expense it.

This is my third year living in New York! I think something that I wish I knew earlier was the size and ease of transportation from some areas.

I would personally recommend looking for living in boroughs like

Some areas in these boroughs are way lower in rent than Manhattan and could easily get you to your job with one train ride.

A commute may help you save thousands a year. This hopefully could get you paying your own mortgage instead of rent

I’m interviewing at two great tech companies and am in the last rounds of interviews at both, meeting with the execs. Both companies have expressed that they want to hire me regardless if the execs agree and are willing to find a place for me. Both have great company culture and benefits, and both are willing to meet my salary requirements. I wish I could work at both of them! If you were in this position, what other factors, besides the obvious would help you make a choice between the two?


I started a new job as an “office manager” at the end of January. The duties seem to align more with those of an EA, and I’m ok with that. Except my boss is a control freak. He scolds me over every little thing, how I load the dishwasher, maybe I didn’t push my chair in. Last week he told me I needed to work on my appearance. I was shocked. I bought all new clothes from Ann Taylor that are perfectly acceptable for business casual. He hates me. Move on ASAP or try to stick it out ?
