Looking for gift ideas for my husband as a thank you for his support in my promotion. Pls help
What would you do if you got a job offer making 40-50k more than what you’re making? Same title, and would be a lateral move at a different agency. I’m really happy at my current agency, but they lowballed me coming in. Since I’ve started 2 years ago I’ve produced a ton of work, they offered me a small raise in March (only 15k) which got put off because of COVID and hasn’t been brought up again.

When you post long, double-spaced anecdotes on LinkedIn, what result are you hoping for? Is the navel-gazing self promotion intended to prompt engagement? Or are the simple platitudes just to serve as a blip of inspiration for the masses?

Why is it so hard to follow advice that you'd clearly give to someone else? Found what I think could be a dream job, but I'm worried about leaving my team in the middle of this project. And also about leaving before reviews after pounding the table about promotion.
I’m so confused. I tried to have a conversation with my manager regarding taking on more responsibility and getting a promotion and he basically shot it down and said we all have the same objectives. Just giving you more responsibility does not mean you’re growing more. We all do the same job in the investment process. I’ve never felt more gaslighted or more discouraged after a promotion conversation. Is this a common experience ?
Has anyone done a tour of duty in another service line during their promotion year and if so did it affect the timeline of your promotion?

My GF has $20k in student loans. Should she do a 10 year plan or try and pay in chunks? She makes $70k but expects to make $100k in 6 months from her promotion.

Has anyone tried to skip having their wedding? The average cost is $35k+, which feels totally reckless to me. I could put a downpayment on a summer/ski home in NH or VT with that 😬 curious, what do y’all think?
I was just told by my manager that taking a 2 week vacation would look bad while staffed on a client project. I’ve already been on this project for over a year and another extension is coming. Take 1week, he said. My husband and I planned to travel to Europe from the west coast which is expensive and time consuming. We don’t want to limit ourselves to 1 week. Has anyone else run into this type of situation? Can management really dictate how long you can get away - if you have the days accrued?
