I owe so much to this bowl! I'm finally putting in my 2 weeks notice and leaving for a whopping over 70% increase in TC!! Current TC: $87k (most likely would increase to $92k if I get bonus and promo next month) Offer TC: ~$150k+ ($110k base, $20k+ bonus, $20k rsu) YOE: 1 year Trust me, don't give up. I fell into severe depression ever since I started my consulting analyst career out of college, saw 5 therapists, gained 10 lbs, and broke relationships. I'd love to give back to you all here!

I hope this isn’t controversial but I’m tired of white women monopolizing spaces for WOC. I’m tired of them not realizing that even thought they are women they are still more privileged and benefit from white supremacy. This is not saying that all white women do that but the majority of the ones I interact with have.
