Anyone notice how IBM is recently winning a ton of "best places to work" awards? Most are all pay to play. After having worked at IBM, I can attest first hand to its horrible culture and many poor leaders - it's is NOT a best place to work. Just causes me to question the validity of all of these public awards and recognition.

We have ~$400k HHI. Monthly expenses are ~$6k (1 child). We live in Austin. We’re seriously considering getting a 900k to 1M house which we wouldn’t be considering if the market in Austin wasn’t so crazy but we’re really big on proximity to culture/resources and need to stay in the area (can’t move to Houston, Dallas, San Antonio , etc.). We also just honestly feel like the suburbs out here are so very bland. Thoughts on us doing this? Are we crazy? Is this understandable given where we live?
Besides FANG what other tech companies would you apply to? The actual job function isn't as important to me. I just want a change in work culture.
Anyone else sick of the drinking/eating culture of the city? What outdoor hobbies do you all do?? Need inspiration
My mental health is really suffering because of family drama. Primarily, it's the toxic sexism in my culture (Indian)- feels very unfair how my mom and I get treated, especially by the males (and some toxic females) in the family. Any advice on how to navigate the double standards and lack of decency/respect? I do have a therapist but don't feel as supported with this. Just feeling really depressed, so any constructive thoughts/advice is super helpful.
I accepted a job from a place my friend works. She got me in and I'd be dropping a title level but making the same $ as my previous role. I accept and 1 day later my #1 on the list came through. better title, pay and benefits. The first company is stoked to have me and everyone is nice. I'm sure on the culture. I reached out to company 2 the week before I accepted this offer and they weren't ready, but now they are. They seem great, but so does everyone when you meet them. What do I do?
Thinking about moving to a big city with the following preferences. I am thinking about Dallas, philly, or Chicago. What’s your experience living in those cities? Is there any other city I am missing? 1. Growing economy and population 2. Great food scene and things to do as a young professional 3. Relative LCOL can’t afford housing in NY, SoCal, etc. 4. Diversity of culture especially a bigger Chinese presence

Need to give notice to my firm tomorrow. Feeling overcome with emotion (guilt, nostalgia, excitement and trepidation). I don't think it will go well because it's a small firm, and I am very close to the partners, but need to move on to achieve career goals (and maintain sanity--I have a great relationship with my colleagues but there is a toxic culture). Truly think that my mentor will see this as a personal betrayal and blow up at me, and I'm sad to burn the bridge. Any words of encouragement?
Started a new role in early August, excited because the opportunity sounded like it was very close to my old job in management and culture. The truth is that it’s not, but no one seems willing to admit it. I feel like I got the rug pulled out from under me, but also feels too soon to be looking to switch again. Am I crazy for considering looking for a better fit so soon?

How important is firm culture/WLB vs practice area? I’m a first year associate working for a firm I summered for. It’s a boutique tax firm with some civil litigation. I love the lit work (have always wanted to do litigation) but I truly hate the tax and corporate work. The WLB is really good though. My boss is generally pretty flexible with my hours, and understanding with family responsibilities (I’m a mom). I have a 1500 billable req and I work very well with my boss. Cont in comments.

Any strong thoughts/opinion about nontenured teachers opting out of joining the union their first 2-3 years? Good idea? Bad idea? It’s good to have community and solidarity, but it’s a also lot of money to some young adults... and if they’re non-renewed, there’s really nothing the union can do. My student teacher asked me and I figured I’d get the opinions of those who have experience on either side. Thanks!

I am an interdisciplinary studies major concentrating on organizational leadership and sociology. I have 17 years of management experience already and I'm not young. I will need an internship this summer, but I tend not to get calls on my applications. I'm nervous because I will need the internship to graduate, and it needs to fulfill expectations of both OGL AND SOC. Human resources, DEI, talent development or acquisition, ethics, all would be great (I think). Best places to look? Thank you!
