How do you interpret this line “At the outset of 2020, better aligned than ever before, buoyed by a youth-positive culture...”

Hard to not read “youth positive culture” as ageist

Somehow we live in the times where “OK Boomer” is a youth-positive culture. #bebest

Gird your loins. My agency used that language and then "laid off" the oldest people in the company. The oldest person is now 42.

“Youth-positive culture” rubs me the wrong way.

How about: At the outset (okay, we’ve missed this boat for the last decade and change, but never mind) better aligned (well, we couldn’t be less aligned, could we?), buoyed (as opposed to what, sunk?), by a youth-positive culture (hi there, anyone out there interested in an age discrimination lawsuit?). Sound reasonable?

I interpret it this way: “I have no idea what to say, so I’m going to spout a bunch of currently popular corporate bullshit in a desperate effort to sound relevant and hope no one notices how pathetic I really am.”

Sudden pay increase in IT is something to be taken seriously. As per my experience, everything in IT is a boomerang. If will come back on us for sure. So be careful my friends. Try to get more but don't be greedy.
A moment of consideration might save many.Suggestions and opinions are welcome.

So I’ve heard most people said once you make over $100k, do traditional 401k instead of Roth 401k. From what I know, you’ll basically have 2 separate accounts moving forward. Or do you transfer your Roth 401k to traditional 401k? Or something else? I’m jumping from $150k to $205k TC. And I think I’m really thinking about the switch now.

Salary negotiation advice needed. Just had an interview at a competitive big 4 for a higher role and was asked my numbers, was told it was too high (despite it being within the known salary band) and was given a counter offer 50k lower than what I asked for and was told to think about it over the weekend - the figure would be a significant pay cut and isn't an option. How much lower would you go from your original number?

How much would you pay a nanny who wants to bring their baby along when caring for your child? For context, I live in Dallas and I found a nanny who has an 8 month old baby boy. My little one is 6 months old. I don’t have an issue with her bringing her baby, I think it will be great for my little one to interact with another kid. However, I don’t feel comfortable paying as much as I would pay a nanny who focus would be completely on my child all day.
