Lol what’s in Florida…

Sunshine, Lower taxes, attractive women (mainly in Miami), beaches, nightlife..

22 million people and America’s fourth largest economy 👀. What do you mean

I don’t understand the constant debate. As someone from the NE that has lived in Florida for a while, both places have their pros and cons. New York has far more cultural events, nightlife (except maybe Miami). Florida on the other hand has great beaches, boating/fishing and lower COL. The two places are hardly even comparable. I for one plan to keep a house/apt in both places as soon as financially feasible.

The weather...gotta get that tan when I can

Boca Raton

Yes, entire pandemic. Last job was locally based and current role is still WFH. Also hot take, but Miami doesn’t have the most attractive women in Florida (I’ve lived in various cities here on both coasts)

Besides, looks are subjective. If you want the blonde, skinny, implants, fit type then Miami is your hot spot. If you want a girl next door… plantation, Fort Lauderdale is more like it. Lol

Desperately need some motivation to stop order taking. If I'm lucky, I'm barely gonna hit 100% this Q. I get a ton of leads and feel like I just need to give them what they want and go to the next. But in reality i do non work related shit for at least 1-2 hours per day. When I WFH, I normally wake up 5 mins before meetings. There's enough time but I'm burnt out having not taken vacation in 6+ years. I can't vacation now. I need to crush numbers and hopefully take some time off in January. HELP

Since we are now WFH, there’s no need for smokers to step outside to take smoke breaks. And with WFH, there are back-to-back conference calls, so the though is that with video calls it’s okay for them to smoke during the calls. I could get behind that I think. Thoughts?

First year attorney struggling with my mental health (& suicidal ideation). Got a job at a boutique firm right after law school in 2019 (in an area of the law I had no interest in but bills) and then the pandemic hit and I did not feel supported by the firm while WFH. My mental health declined as did my work product and I’m essentially being let go by the firm. Really struggling with thoughts of being a failure and like maybe I’m just dumb and someone mistakenly let me graduate law school.

Hello Everyone! Had a discussion yesterday regarding “claw backs” being included in a policy for sponsorship if the new employee leaves before 3 years.

I get wanting to save costs but at the same time doesn’t feel inclusive or welcoming. Thoughts? Have you done this or seen it work? Thanks!

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?

Looking for honest and positive advice please. Have an offer for D which is 165K TC (SC level) but was recently promoted at the SA level (125K TC) with an incredible team and relationship. Would it be worth leaving an amazing team and positive culture so soon? I’d essentially be starting from scratch from a relationship perspective. For background, I have 2 YOE in Cloud.

Which would you take: - stay at current industry FS F100 firm. Incredible support from leadership, super great WLB (30 hrs a week), potential promo TC: $115k - offer from top industry Tech firm (think Microsoft/Salesforce/FAANG). Doing the same work, but likely more hours, and unknown leadership support. TC: $180k Obviously the jump in TC is huge, but I really value WLB. Any insight would be super helpful! 28M, 5.5 YOE, MCOL (DFW/ATL/PHO)
