I quit my previous job approximately 5-6 months ago due to toxic culture and being pressured to commit fraud… I fear hiring managers see that I’ve been out of work for this time and may assume I was fired or laid off. Additionally I’ve had a couple interviews where company “X” interviewers have commented on this and in an effort to not bad mouth my previous employer I’m stuck with a generic answer like I want to take my career to the next level with Company “X.” Any thoughts/advice?

Kinda confused when calculating IRR/MoM in LBO, especially when it comes to net debt. When buying the company, you are responsible for refinancing the exisiting net debt (ie the PE firm has to take out bank notes / equity to cover the net debt), but when you are exiting the company, you have to use your own proceeds (EBITDA upon exit x Exit Multiple) to pay off the remaining debt. Why would you having to pay off your own debt when exiting? Why won’t the buyer be on the hook for refinancing

Good morning! I work in Medicare sales and I’m just getting tired of sales because I have to change these elderly people on their insurance very frequently, and it’s frustrating most of the time.

I just want to be happy right now without taking a major pay cut leaving sales. I’m making 80k now, I don’t need to keep making that but a decent amount while still helping people. 🙏

Took a Controller position a year ago at a PE-acquired Manufacturing Company after 7 years of PA. No support staff. Making $76k. 2021's merit increase offering was $2k. The YE Bonus ended up as $1,200(Insulting, especially for accomplishments achieved this past year alone).

Given my position and knowledge of future increases budgeted (another insulting $2k increase), how do I bring up the issue of severely being underpaid, when Robert Half Salary guide says median salary in my area is 125K.
