My anniversary rating was 3.98 and Got band 'C' . Will I be eligible for wings-1?
If yes, whom do I need to contact
Got a verbal offer for a sr consultant role at an FSI for 80K base, 8% bonus. Today, I see a job posting for the same job and company and the range is 68K-111K. The hiring manager in the interviews stated the range was 65-78K. HR just called and told me I have one day to decide. I haven't received the email/paper offer yet. This is leading me to feel off about this situation. What should I do? Its still a 15K pay bump for me.

I was surprised to receive a verbal offer on the high end of my stated target range, $240K all-in.

I’m in an MBA program and work as a summer associate for JP Morgan Chase. The work life and pay are great FT, but I’m strongly considering gunning for a role as an AE at a big tech company post-graduation i.e. Adobe, Salesforce. Any advice on how to break into the industry?
I really thought changing firms would help me focus, get back in the game, etc. but 6 months into my now third firm, I just can’t mentally or physically do this. I def don’t work as hard at this firm but I just hate practicing I realized. Anyone else in a similar boat? Advice on what to do next? FWIW I’m a transactional atty.

Have you guys been so frustrated by work that you decide to take a PTO the next day? Did it help?
