Yup, but depends, it's kind of a fine line, or a 50-50 situation or even a 60-40 risk but still it's worth the effort to putforth your ideas!


In some cases it definitely backfires!

I’m always honest and while I feel like it can definitely be hurtful to people, I feel like they respect me and come to me for advice more.

I know this topic does not get talked about much but will eventually impact almost all of us so here goes. I am thinking of retiring (early) and would love recommendations for countries that I can retire to that. Primary factors would be cost if living, safety, warm climate, good health care system, (preferably) close to the US - not a requirement, stable government and laws, diversity in landscape (beach, rivers, mountains). Definitely not super rich so thinking of 5k a month in expenses.

Have an offer on the table at a startup that’s $35K more than current big 4 salary for a Senior Manager role. Benefits package is very comparable (401k match, healthcare costs, fringe stipends for WFH). Startup has been around for 5+ years and has secured a solid, 9 figures of investor dollars. Is it worth the move and having to leave my extremely secure “network” and role at a Big 4?


Debating between 2 starting job offers. Both are great companies and roles I’m interested growing in. But I’m confused financially which is better. Option 1: $62K salary, 15 days off, summer Fridays Option 2: $31.25 hourly, 18 days off, longer hours with time in a half OT, bonus at end of year I’ve never worked a corporate hourly job so I have no idea what to choose.
