Was I this position two years ago, had no intention staying for long so I went for the one with the better brand & exit ops

Culture and travel and medical/PTO benefits were biggest for me. Didn't care much about the money once I saw anything over $135k.

If comp is equal, go with the one that’ll provide best exit opportunities should you want to leave eventually

"Better brand" advice is not helpful if it's any of the Big 4. Your project experience will mostly be the same. Things like culture, staffing process, etc. might help you decide

Looking for some advice. I made 150k on GME but then lost 100k in the hype. Despite coming out net positive I feel like an idiot for being where I started after gaining so much. I recognize I broke a lot of my trading rules and I essentially was trading on emotion which lead to my loss. If it matters my portfolio is about 80k and I make about the same in salary. So this was the most money I’ve ever handled or even traded. Advice?

Married 1.5 years long distance. I took a job to be with him that pays twice what he earns now. I’ve been sharing every detail of my job hunt, interviews to salary negotiations. He has been very supportive but sometimes I feel guilty I’m rubbing it into his face and I have goals about going up the ladder fast, get/ experience the fanciest things and reaching a certain role/salary in life. I fear when I move in things may change, I’ll feel held back, may need to take low pay to feel we’re equal
