Fml, noticed I had 'bustiness' instead of 'business' on a slide as I was presenting it in key meeting.

Bonus tip: don't abbreviate analyst to 'anal.' -- it's not the same thing!

Got any similar stories/tips?

I was once presenting something where the last bullet on the last slide was just "and anal". Like someone started write we would analyze something as a next step but just stopped on the middle. Luckily I noticed before starting and made sure we never made it to the last slide.

Years ago, I was asked to do Quarterly meeting deck. I repurposed last quarter’s deck…. only to be called out as soon as presentation started, “why do you have meet spelled like “meat” ? “

I was dead 💀.

ones I've seen...
Manger instead of manager
Costumer instead of customer (throughout the entire deck, done by the head of customer experience!)
Fortunate 500 instead of fortune 500
... And have definitely caught asses instead of assess

Hello everyone. During an initial phone interview, I was asked about my salary expectation and I said 70-75K. 2 interviews and an assessment later, I realized that this position would pay 80-85K based on my research, if I get offered 75K because that’s what I had mentioned, is it okay to negotiate that since I didn’t have all the information at the beginning?

I like my team and am mentored/inspired by my Ps, but am afraid that the comp gap has grown too wide. Any thoughts on approaching this?

Where would you live if you had the choice? I’m about to transition from sales (hybrid) to marketing (remote). We currently live in the Bay Area, but with the new remote job, I’m realizing we can live anywhere. I love the Bay Area but it’s so expensive. Ideally, I’d like to live in a medium sized city with good weather, good (and diverse) restaurants, and direct flights. We’re DINKs, with total household income around $180k. Currently renting. Let me know about your favorite cities!
