It’s at-will employment. You wanna leave? Leave.

They’d never think about you being there for 15 months if they had to lay people off.

If you want something better, go get something better.

Yeah buddy, this is the confession bowl! I'll answer your question but you'd best confess SOMETHING in your next reply!
I'd say 15 months is not too early, I think that's plenty of time to show you gave it an honest shot. Besides, if a new company is already interviewing you and offering you a position, they clearly don't see a stigma to the 15 month run behind you.

Is Veeva systems hiring process really so terrible? I was confirmed verbal offer 3 months ago and had multiple follow ups from them for additional info as they were preparing formal offer.

I just started a new job about a month ago. I find it hard to deal with my new boss. She is very rude in her Feeback and I can’t deal. I came from a big company where I have over 15 plus years of accounting experience and implementation of financial system. I took this role as a Controller at a smaller company where they do everything manual. And it’s taking some time to get use to a new system and industry. Her expectations are that I should come in and KNOW my job??!?? What should I do?

I am constantly conflicted, 8 YoE, half in leading roles in in-house innovation teams, and half in innovation and design consulting. I make around 170k, is this considered okay pay for my domain and YoE? If I look at the designer bowl, YES. If I look at the Consulting bowl, then NO. If I look at where I am, I am proud of myself but based on some insights in this app, I constantly feel that more can be done from me to get a better comp.
