Anyone here quit without a job offer and can share stories. I am set to quit, burnt out and have a job prospect but not an offer yet - I’m mentally checked out from work and partner keeps pushing me as theoretically it’s my promotion year. I know it’s a waste of everyone’s time and am seriously considering just leaving.

Have you guys noticed a difference in reactions when asking for a raise from men/women supervisors?

I don’t know though as I only have 2 situations to go by. any thoughts? Curious to know others’ experience

Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.

I’ve long disliked the term ethics. Definitions of ethics all refer to morals. Morals are very personal and vary a lot from person to person, culture to culture. Law is how we as a society express our preferences and impose rules and restrictions on ourselves. So the question should never be about whether companies can be ethical. What does that mean? One person thinks eating meat is unethical, another thinks it’s perfectly ethical. Companies should focus on complying with the law.
