Was getting yelled at by senior manager via Zoom for going over budget. Didn’t respond, just dropped from the call Intentionally, due to the tone/ aggression shown. Gave him 3 minutes to calm down and rejoined the zoom call. He settled down and adjusted his tone. Do you guys think I need to report to HR this behavior or just let it go? I’m a professional not a child to berate.

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Questions for a newer investor. I don’t come from a finance background but I’ve been educating myself on stocks and just started investing this year! As a 24yr old I’m in if for the long term.

What in your mind is a “manageable” monthly student loan payment coming out of an MBA program (assuming 10 year term)? I’ll be taking out loans soon and I’m trying to benchmark my expected payments. (On the same note – what mix of savings/loans did you use to pay for your MBA? And what would you consider a good “safety net” aka savings left after paying for your MBA?)
I just received an offer, and want to make sure I’m not leaving any money on the table. What is the typical wiggle room companies have for negotiation?

(No defined compensation matrix or anything at this company) thanks!
