I took a 25% pay cut to join a brand I love (with stock options). It’s the price I pay for sanity and it makes a huge difference. If not waking up wanting to die every Monday morning costs me 25%, it’s worth it to me. I have a much more positive outlook on life.

As long as you’re making enough $$$ to get by, do it. The first option sounds better in every way (other than $$$) and like that’s where you want to be.

Looking for advice.

started a new PM role 4 weeks ago only to realise that the entire PM function is done by various other people inside the department. I have tried bringing up the discussion with my line manager without making it into a complaint (since i’m so new, and i want to be flexible) but i’m getting the impression that even my manager doesn’t know what a PM is or does. (He asked me if the roadmap should sit with the scrum master amongst other comments)

Thoughts of approach?

Though after 2 months my appraisal period there so there are chances that my current company can retain me with the amount of offer letter.
So my question is how can I hold the current offer, like any excuse that feels valid & hold offer for 2 weeks.
