Hypothetically if your counselor didn't recommend you for promotion to senior from staff 2 how would you react? Specifically if your metrics and reviews have all been good? Would you blow up?

Hell fucking yeah I'd blow up! I'm pissed I got a 3 with the stats and numbers I had compared to my peers. If they also didn't promote me, I'd be super pissed.

This is the only time where you basically get promoted automatically. You have to really, really screw up to not get promoted at this level. Super low utilization, egregious behavior that violates policies etc. so even if your counselor did not recommend you. If everything was looking decent the board would have overruled your counselor. So EY3 got it right.

M7 infrastructure in Texas. I'm currently paid near bottom of scale in my group. I'm not upset and love my job and my peers. I have an offer for 40% raise to industry job. I prefer my current work though, both from daily work and career path. But 40% raise is a big deal. At what point is the pay raise more important than daily work joy. I'm stressing over this decision. I don't really want to leave.

New to options so appreciate the help in advance- have bought call options OOM - earnings is tomorrow - currently would make profit if I sold- but expecting good news tomorrow that would raise the underlying price. Multiple people are saying you should sell before earnings because the options price may actually go down - can someone explain if this is accurate and why?

Hello! I’m looking for advice on asking for a raise. I accepted a UX design role about a year ago within my company and I was verbally told I would receive a raise with my title change after a few months on the job. After a few months, I was told no raises because of the pandemic (understood). With a new year and recently receiving my masters in UX, when is the right time to ask for the raise with the pandemic still happening?
