Is vanguard ‘managed’ 401K plan really worth it? Or better off investing all towards S&P500 equivalent. 30 Years old and have quite some time for retirement . Thoughts ?
I have 6 YOE in. Net+Angular and got an offer from Legato Health Technologies with 20 LPA Fixed, i joined Infor just 11 months ago with 12LPA Fixed and i will get the hike in August. If i resign now i will not get hike and i am a critical resource in the project, i guess Infor might try to retain me by matching offer. What should i do? Should i resign ASAP and not negotiate with Infor . I have all these doubts because Infor is a product based company.

I got a mail from SAP HR for invitation to apply to SAP Developer Associate - ABAP. I replied back to 3 days later but haven't heard from them for past 10 days. What to do and why just cold mail us when you can't reply back?

It’s necessary and healthy to break up with toxic friends and family members as you go through life’s many stages. Just thought someone could use this reminder.

First watching the Radio Shack social was just weird and now it’s downright scary. After this tweet, Radio Shack QRT’d her and now their incel/extremely online followers are harassing her.
1st job I was told growth would be too hard. Female, Brown, too nice. You won’t be respected.
5 yrs in - doing pretty well.
Still not white. Still female. Still nice. Still growing.
I stood up to my misogynistic, narcissistic, raunchy male boss who was insufferable to work for. I got fired. Phew, that felt good to get off my chest. Are there any agencies ran by strong, kind, talented WOMEN hiring right now?
1. Male ECD suggests a sexist and tone deaf idea for a project
2. I tell him his idea, while appreciated, is very inappropriate and a bit sexist
3. Said ECD goes on to mansplain sexism to me
What to do when you leave the small pond?
I've spent the last decade getting really good at whatever job I've had at the time. Doing what people told me to do, filling in gaps, being the cheerleader that everyone got along with.
Problem now is that I'm finally in a place where I can set my own path and I feel totally lost and unprepared. I've even looked for advice on SMART goals at my level but the shame/inadequacy/imposter syndrome is so strong.
Anyone else felt this way? What helped?
Does anyone work at Mattel here? What is the creative team insight? What is highly valued as a team member in that role at that company? I’m really interested in working for them but have had no luck with the roles I’ve applied there. Any tips to stand out?
I hear a lot about “burning bridges” what would be considered burning a bridge and how can I make sure I avoid that? It makes me kind of nervous when interviewing and speaking with recruiters.
Not sure how to take receiving feedback that I’m “very articulate”. I’m so used to it being used as a back-handed comment. 🤷🏼♀️
interview follow up advice?
By the end I was asked to send 3 references, he also mentioned that would like me to meet the team by the end of the month and that the starting day would be middle of Sept. In the job description it did say that once interviewed they’d appreciate references and a brief meeting with the team. I assume they’re asking this for everyone? I sent an email right after our call (last Thursday) with the references (no call yet) and no response🙁. Should I follow up ?
Does anyone have advice on how not to cry when discussing minor conflicts with your manager? I have had some truly terrible management experiences which is where this is coming from but even though my manager now is fine, I find that I’m still crying as a trigger response and it’s super annoying. I don’t want this kind of thing to set me back.
Does anyone have any tips on how to deal with patronising managers?
It's been going on for weeks now where they don't explain things they need from me properly (they make it seem very small and simple then change the ask later), they give my male counterpart better opportunities and briefs, they grill me on how exactly I spend my time daily.
I know it's not the end of the world but it's causing me stress and work crying which I never did before.
What’s your relationship with HR like? I’ve always worked at big agencies where it was easy to keep my distance from HR. Now, I’m at a way smaller agency and HR keeps trying to get to know me. How do I politely establish boundaries?
Anyone else just start a new position right before WFH and feels like they’re failing? 😢😢

Any mid level pharma writers interested in a temp to perm gig? DM me your book and I’ll forward it to the agency. NYC. On-site only probably.
I used to be so confident with great self esteem. This boys club shit at work, blocking me at every pass, has made me feel so small. I realized today I don’t feel confident anymore and I don’t...
