Firm initiatives are the stupidest form of free labor. Most solutions don't make it to market, and we're expected to work late nights with no compensation. I'm not even convinced it helps our rating.

It's doesn't help your rating... Rather just gives them a reason to pull you down 😜

Don't take bitch-roles on firm initiatives. If you're not making an impact, not worth your free labor time. And treat it as an opportunity to impress whatever good people are working on it.

I work part-time @ Lowe’s to supplement my teacher salary. Over the weekend, the store withdrew its mask mandate for employees. Yet my district still requires masking.

Any advice for negotiation?

When they say you should have 1x annual salary saved by age 35, does that mean:

1. Annual gross or net income?

2. It includes funds in 401k + HSA + Cash Savings + Equity in Home? Or just 401k?

3. If just 401k, how do people get to that amount if there are annual caps? I contribute to the max and nowhere near the amount I need to be. Granted I started in my late 20s.
