Do you put both socks on before starting on shoes or sock/shoe sock/shoe?


Pyramid scheme!


A partner told me he needs to replace himself with ten new partners for his pension to be worth it.


Make alliances, don't get voted off the island, win challenges and you'll make a million.


Both socks first

Compensation is based on how many equity shares they have. Yes there is a partner pension. Yes it's pyramid scheme in that the pensions are funded by the business. If the business fails, bye bye pension...

Do the math PwC1. Check your numbers.

What is there to check

I recently received an offer to join a Fortune 500 tax department for a large increase in salary. However, almost everyone on the team has joined in the past 2 years. They say that the previous team underperformed and they are making efforts to double the team. Is this too big of a red flag to ignore? It seems like it could be an opportunity to have input in changes, but the turnover scares me a little.

Why is there such a huge pay difference between IT and Mechanical/auto industries? Many people in IT are getting 3xx salary hikes, but here I am struggling to get more that 20-30% hikes. Sure the skills are much more demand in IT field, but the discrepancy is too much. Is it due to most of the work are outsourced to consultancy/service based companies by the OEM? Or is there simply too much candidates available?


Hi All,

I think we all know that it's a hot market right now and I'm not actively looking but I take a recruiter call here and there. I'd love to share my experience and background and the salary ranges I have seen the last month or so. I have not gotten to an offer but I might be getting close.

My background: 6 years as a CSM, multiple unicorn startups prior to where I am now. I'm based in the Midwest and fully remote.

I have been asking for a $140k-$150k base + 20% and equity. Thoughts?


I live in CA. If a recruiter for a company in OH asks me for my current salary over the phone, are they breaking the law?
