Follow the money in your pursuit of happiness and don’t look back. Of course assuming career progression and work culture are acceptable at the new gig.

Promotion in October isn’t typical, how do you know that’s guaranteed? Depends on what role the other op is

We found out last month and promotion goes into effect in October. Other op is asset management. High net worth individuals and small businesses are the main client pool

Personally, I’d stay for a 10k bump unless you hate your job. I never count on bonuses either especially with COVID. I would never also solely follow money in pursuit of your happiness. I almost left as a senior 1 and I am really glad I stayed.

D1, I’m glad I stayed because I eventually moved teams and into real estate. I didn’t realize I enjoyed it more until I got on it, met some awesome people, and really connected with a few partners. Not to mention I had a baby so I got 16 weeks fully paid to be with my wife and kid. Now I have so much flexibility. Like seriously no joke. It’s invaluable to me with a family.

I feel jerked around by my team, as they keep telling me I will be promoted/have more responsibility, every few months. When I follow up, I am usually told, “but you have more responsibility now; no need to make it official”. Not sure what to believe any longer. They said they have put forward a case for my promotion now. I want to believe them this time but feel like a fool when I think back to some of the earlier conversations. Should I bring those conversations up, or just smile and saythanks

I close in about 2 wks. 1st column: The #s w/current tenant till June. We won't renew the lease. Instead we'll rehab the inside; ~$7k, then raise the rent to match the market. Using coulmn #2, total monthly cashflow of all homes is $1,186mo. Initial goal is $20.5K/$1,708 mo. Almost there! If we can rent it for $1.1Kmo (column 3)...AWESOME!

I’ve seen a lot of posts on twitter that have a ton of rts blaming the police for criminalizing homelessness and drug addiction instead of fixing the problem...so basically the police are now the scapegoats for elected officials and prosecutors? Police brutality is on police, but blaming the police for the penal code and how much it’s enforced seems like a bs way for politicians and attorneys/judges to ignore their role and blame police for following their orders. We gotta own up to our part.

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.

Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic. He made it clear at the beginning that he didn’t want to date because we’re co-workers. Stung a bit when I went on a dating app this morning and saw his profile. The rational part of me knows we’re only ever going to be buddies and that if he actually wanted me, then he’d make something happen. Looking for advice on how to get over this.
