What is an appropriate way to ask about layoffs while interviewing? I’m about to interview at a company that laid off a fair amount of people a month ago, but seemingly not in the group I’m interviewing for. Want to make sure I don’t get there then get laid off. Better to wait for offer to bring this up?

I love the idea of working in venture capital or start-ups, but cannot stand the people. I find the culture extremely performative, and the people incredibly self-important.

I'm applying for a role (only one I've applied to) and so far have succeeded in several rounds. I am interested but not actually sure I will take it. Is this inconsiderate given amount of investment they are making and I might say no in the end?
What does it mean when a recruiter says the midpoint of the base salary is $100k? I believe they may have an upper limit, and if yes, what do u think it is? How much flexibility they may have? This is a tech company - non FAANG. Starting to look for new job.. in my late 20s. Thanks.

Unhappy with role (biz ops/ strategy type) after exiting to fintech. Is it just me?
To clarify, I do like my core team that I lead. But when partnering with XFN (engineers, data scientists, product managers) often feel like a second class citizen constantly trying to prove my teams value to them. They clique together and shut out the folks with business backgrounds. My team get along best with likes of corp dev, finance, partnerships…

I’m from Vietnam, and I can tell you whoever said those things are just overcompensating for their insecurities.
Essentially they’re (mostly not all) people who cannot succeed in US and find themselves there. In addition, we value “western foreigners” making them more desirables just by being there
There’s a reason why people try so hard to come here.
I mean i love my country and it’s a great place to explore/learn about other culture. We tend to chill more but work much harder in the corporate world. Healthcare is cheaper and much more accessible but of course lower quality for high level care. But saying as our people thinking US as 3rd world country couldn’t be further from the truth.
The only reason the US might feel like a third world country would be if you have USD savings and are taking advantage the exchange rate. Especially if you're White, visiting SEA is very different than growing up there.
Teaching English overseas also has a very bad connotation- generally that you don't have any other skills so you use your Western status to exploit a poorer country and make a living. Everyone I've know who went to Asia to teach either couldn't find a job or were huge weebs. And when they came back to the US, it was nearly impossible for them to find a white collar job.
Teaching English in Asia versus having any other job in Asia is way different. Historically teaching English has had barely any requirements and thus attracted unqualified people as a result.
Also do you know the difference between a weeb and a dweeb? A weeb is just someone obsessed with Japanese culture usually due to Anime
Sounds like you need to move somewhere else in the US. Try Wyoming. ...
Sounds like you should just move to a Tier 2 city
I have a friend who just moved from Amsterdam to Cambodia for a job. She’s struggling a lot with culture shock and adapting to the Cambodian way of life and work culture. She’s been really frustrated. It might be fun for a short term assignment, but as a permanent transition may not check the boxes you think it will.
US feels like a third world country next to Cambodia...? Go visit then tell me that with a straight face. Beautiful country and people but - that’s just wrong.
Have you been to SEA for a prolonged amount of time before? It can be great but there are also real downsides, the culture can wear on you if you grew up in Western countries, and you will have a hard time really integrating.
And some things are cheap but if you want a comparable lifestyle to what you’re used to from the USA, you might have to spend more money than you think
No never been the pictures they post look incredible though and the col calculators make it seem incredibly easy to get by after living in a HCOL city in the US.
There are a lot of organisations that can help you with this. Give it a try. It’s important that you see the world outside US. Be open minded & It will bring a lot of perspective and awareness.
