Fellow fishes, any productivity podcasts you enjoy listening to? I'm trying to make my work hours a worthwhile experience.
My boyfriend wants kids. The only kids I want are the ones with fur and 4 legs. He loves them because he has nieces and nephews, but he doesn’t even wake up when our senior cat cries at night or throws up on the floor. I’m the one that hears it. Doesn’t make me feel hopeful that he’ll wake up when he hears a baby cry at night. He sleeps like a log.

I was told by management they see me in a more supervisory role at my first year review and during meetings. My second year review comes and there’s no talk about a promotion - instead it says “we can’t wait to see her excel“ and my raise and increase were the same as the prior year. I know I deserved more of an increase this year. I mentioned to my manager about the promotion and was told she will bring it up in a meeting. Three months later and I haven’t heard anything. Any advice?

Any advice on how to request a 20% raise? This is my first career out of college. I signed my offer letter knowing that I was being underpaid by 10%, as per the posted position salary. My 1-year appraisal is close and I would like to request 20% based on an increased workload; I would also like to make up for being underpaid my first year.
My dilemma: Many companies only pay up to a 4% raise. However, that will not cover much in this economy, and I would still be still underpaid.

2. Transactions: Assume this is deals support like CMAAS?
