Hi, I have been deployed on azure devops as a fresher. So, is it a good career choice growth and salary wise?
When do you know it’s time to move on? Been at the same company 6+ years, and killing my quota consistently (last 5 years 25%+ when team growth goals were 3-6%). Coworker just got promoted to sales manager because she got an MBA and now I have to report to her. I have double the years in sales on her and the success to back it up. Feels like a demotion since I previously reported to the director. Time to look elsewhere?

Hi All, I recently moved to the Boston area, and husband and I are trying to find a more permanent spot to settle in. We're mid thirties and about to start our family. I'm originally from NY, so walkability is very important to me. Somewhere somewhat well to do but not too expensive, walkable to cafes, etc, and within a walkable mile to a train station. Does this place exist?? Appreciate any insight. Thank you!
Rant: anyone other creatives get sh*t from men on the account side in regards to your OOO days? I put my ooo days in cals way in advance (also it’s the project management team job to resource accordingly) and then give a reminder in a meeting but am met with sassy comments like “oh that’s news to me” or “wow I need your ooo package” sorry I saved my ooo days for the summer and have comp days from working multiple weekends. Needed to get that out, okay bratty rant over.

When I have gotten negative or even “constructive” feedback in the past, at first I can accept it gracefully and analyze and decide how to use it to improve, then within 24 hours I’m stuck and beat myself up and can’t get out of this negative self-talk spiral. Anyone do this and figure out how to stop the “omg - I am the WORST”
loop in your head? Also? Wonder if men do this to themselves or is this a uniquely female thing.
Question: My boyfriend has been telling me and friends/family that he is going to propose “soon.” I told him that’s wonderful, but it’s starting to cause me anxiety because friends/family think there is going to be a proposal every single event because of the word “soon.” Today he let it slip that he doesn’t even plan for it to be in 2021 after about 6 months of waiting because he wanted to do an international trip? I’m older and the nature of the proposal isnt important. Anyway (contd below)

I’m on an exponential trajectory at my current consulting job, will likely make partner in 4 years tops. I’ve just started communicating my notice to the partners I work with and they’re casting so much doubt in my head. New job, VP, global company, high visibility. Large base increase, double % bonus than current, equity…however, their point is that in consulting, I’ll far pass all of that in 4-5 years and keep going. I worry about giving away my book of business and failing in industry…

What should my next step be? I haven’t yet told him.
does anyone just get depressed when your period hits? looking around my apartment after a week that wasn’t *too* busy and wondering what the hell happened. my clothes are all over the place, dishes piled up in the sink, and half empty glasses of water everywhere. on a hormonal IUD, so I don’t feel like this should be such an issue…

Is RBF even a real thing? You don’t see men not smiling or men that look intimidating getting called out on it. Kind of getting tired of always having to put a slight smile on my face on zoom calls 🥲
