Applying to T15 in R2. Currently have a 700 GMAT (43Q, 41V) after taking once. Even if I raise my quant to 47, which would be impressive for me, I’ll still be at a 700 (possibly 710). 3.6 undergrad GPA. Worth retaking? Or just focus on the rest of my applications?
Promotion was with HR to be approved...am I being paranoid for worrying the current world situation could significantly delay it?
After 6 yrs of PM/PO out of college working for Cigna, I was informed my position is being eliminated due to “staff reductions to combat with rising costs of healthcare.” I was offered severance & I’ve got several positions in the works with the same company thankfully. I was caught off-guard, never had a bad review & was expecting a promotion soon. If there’s ever been a sign to jump ship it’s now. I’m an enthusiastic PM ready to embrace new challenges. Any1 want to hire me? DM for resume! 🤝 🤞🏼
Everytime I ask my boss for a raise he tells me there is a freeze. How should I handle the situation?
I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued
Have you guys noticed a difference in reactions when asking for a raise from men/women supervisors? I feel like the women supervisors that I’ve asked get really uncomfortable and look at me like I’m asking for a lot, whereas the men at least are a bit more composed in their reaction and almost expect it. I don’t know though as I only have 2 situations to go by. any thoughts? Curious to know others’ experience
What is the path to a GC for a senior associate on a TN? I’ve been with my firm since college (2 years) - firm policy is that they initiate the process after a two year tenure (and provided you are senior associate rank, at minimum). Will I be able to pass the PERM evaluation? If not, would things get easier with a subsequent promotion? Or would it be best to lateral to a new firm and start the process there? Sorry, super green when it comes to this
I just got promoted over a friend and I am really worried about how this will impact her. To be honest I think she is even more deserving of the promotion than me. What do I do to make it better so our friendship isn’t poisoned by this?

Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers. (2) For internal transfer to Chief of Staff, why those teams don’t promote their own Strategy & Op folks? (3) For BizOps internal promotion, there are not many Director positions. (4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!

One of the SMs is supporting my promotion case but they are lately trying to micromanage me and ask all nagging questions unnecessarily. Unsure how to handle this professionally.
I’m up for promotion to manager in a couple months and not looking forward to it. Seems like it’s a lot of process management, pushing back every direction and very isolating (contd)

I just started at a new job and noticed that whenever I go to start work, my blood pressure spikes (from 120/80 to 150/110) along with my pulse (from 80 to 110). I like what I do but it’s hard to ignore the affect on my health. What should I do, aside from meditation and deep breathing (which I’m doing)?
