Hey Fishes, Can i quit a company within 1 week of joining if i got a better offer?

I left a company after 25 days to join my current company.
However I advise you to not abscond, but to let them know that you are interested in joining a new company because of your valid reasons - it can be money as well.
If the company is half decent it should allow you to leave as you don't have any responsibilities assigned to you yet.

Follow the exit process and get all the required documents.


My previous company allowed me immediate release after 25 days of job.
They did not ask me to serve notice period as it doesn't make sense.

You can : Yes
You should : No ( if the reason is only money)
Always look at the bigger picture. Are you underpaid? Can you switch after 1 year?

Hi hivemind,

I would love to seek your advice regarding career development in Mktg org. I've been with Google for 7 years and all in Business Development/Partnerships with 2 different teams (currently a tenured L5). I recently have an opportunity to be a PMM, but will likely need to repeat my level as my manager is an L6. I love the opportunity to try different things at Google but some of my close friends kept telling me that it's a downgrade from where I am

Do you think Black folks in healthcare would serve in more leadership roles if we were more proactive about going after promotions? Most of the Black admins I know at my job go above and beyond, are loved by everyone and seem like they'd be perfect for promotion but that's not what I'm seeing happen. Are they being overlooked, or just less likely to pursue it?


Salary POV: I recently accepted a position at Oracle Consulting USA (Cloud ERP practice) in their delivery organization as a Director Cloud ERP. I accepted the Salary of $195K and a quarterly bonus of 35%. The hiring manager told me that realistically people get around 10 to 20%. I have 20+ years of experience in EBS, Cloud ERP as an SME as well as PM roles. My question is did I settle for less? Should I have negotiated better? Any inputs from people in similar roles at Oracle or ex-Oracle?

I am interviewing for a FP&A Manager position in Proserv UK. Could you please disclose the initial salary that I could ask for?

Been here for almost 3 years now. I am pretty good at this job - clients and teams like me a lot and if I decided to stay could definitely make it work in the long run, but it’s not a job that makes me fulfilled and happy; and increasingly so. Want better hours, less focus on optics, deeper problem solving, slower pace and more ownership over deliverables ( not just slides) - anyone feel similarly and left? How are things on the other side - are you happy/ could you solve for the aforementioned?
