Been debating moving from a tier 2 city to NYC. On one hand never being home is rough to pay inflated COL but the networking, exit oops, and exposure to top talent is the best in the world. Worth it?

Not everything has to be about work ☺️ maybe just live where you want to live #yolo


In NYC what ? Everything has to be about work here ? No if that’s what you’re saying. And yeah just live in NYC cause it’s the best city in the world OP

What kind of work do you do? If it's something like financial services you might not be traveling all that much.


Commercial- never been staffed in nyc or heard of anyone who was

I love NY but know I wouldn’t want to be there for more than 2-3 years. I’d consider how long you want to be there. I also am very socially driven and wouldn’t want to restart my friend group

"exit oops" is a great slip

Lol nope

Hi, I have an offer from GlobalLogic for Senior QE Manager. They are offering ₹36 lpa fixed + ₹4 lpa bonus (which is paid out 100%) = approx ₹40.5 lpa.

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?


How should I be thinking about my YOE? Should I be including any of my time in the military? For context, I spent 10 years in the Army (tactical level operations) before getting an MBA. Currently 2 years into consulting and looking to exit into tech.

I'm getting ready to accept an offer at a new agency, but what I really want is to go in-house. I had 6 very positive interviews at a co. but lost out by a hair. They said they're growing & would keep me in mind for future relevant openings. Is it worth pinging that co's recruiter to let her know I'm considering a role at a new agency & ask if they expect any openings soon? Feels unlikely, but I'd hate to start a new job and then get a call from the company I actually want to work for.
