Previous technology implementation background earlier in my career Left strategy, operations, and M&A role Went through standard hiring process and didn’t find the interviews as difficult as Mckinsey’s process but generally more challenging than big4. Comp at L6 was approximately 250k averaged over 4 years with vest. At L7 now I’ll make ballpark $350k this year but it’s variable based on share price. Comp can vary significantly year to year and even drop off based on RSU allocation.

I had been a senior manager I understood technology, SDLC, testing, etc. I used experience implementing software and blueprinting and target state business process as examples to use the software to develop optimal business processes. I tied back to KPI and the business value drivers and desired state for customers. I treated off the shelf software configuration and RICE objects as development and feature use cases as well as upgrades and associated integration/regression testing.

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
