👋 I’m currently a PM at a startup making $120k. I’ve got two offers at $150k. My dilemma is that I work maybe 25hrs/week and exceed expectations and I spend 10-15hrs/week on my side hustles which make about $100k. Hourly I make more at $120k, but I’m thinking about leveraging those offers to get a bump. Any thoughts on how to go about getting that bump?

I have a senior that I feel like I am begging to communicate with me - I’ve had 3 separate conversations in the last week asking them to let me know when things are ready and to include me on certain emails. There have been opportunities between the conversations for them to apply what we’ve discussed and they simply do not. They do a nice job with the client, but I’m pretty frustrated they are not being communicative with me. How do I get them to be responsive and not always be chasing them

Contract funding is expiring but I also have a new job lined up to start in June. Partner and HR are aware. We're essentially mutually parting ways.

I thought that I'd be resigning, but they offered today to terminate me for the sake of unemployment benefits.

They said I'd always get a glowing review and be welcomed back (leaving/not rolling onto a new project b/c one-off work-life stuff not aligning with project needs currently: great exp otherwise).

Pros and cons of resign vs terminate?

PTO means time off.

Not kind of time off. Not "hey could you do this one thing for me". Not "trying to save the client money so use your PTO but you'll be working". Not "let's turn everything into an emergency so they have to work".

It isn't a suggestion that they are unavailable. They are unavailable.

If you don't respect their time off, then why should anyone respect yours?

Do not be reaching out to your teammates that are on PTO.

Whatever it is, it can wait.

Working at GDS in the PAS practice for less than a year now. Need some advise in building a career in HR consulting from people who may have experience.

Is consulting only repackaging old ppts into new and sharing it with clients? Is this the type of work expected at GDS normally? Really need serious answers

Where do you shop for non-work clothes that are on the more proper side? My sense of style correlates to the Theory brand but I’m 5’2 and my hips are 34 - which isnt the average proportion for their inventory. They fit more traditional European bodies (tall/skinny) and I’m struggling to find a brand that would have items proportional to my body. I tend to go for more petite sizes but can’t seem to find nicer brands. And before anyone suggests getting things altered, it kind of ruins the look.
