If an offer says 110 and 50 vested over 4 years , is that 110 + 12.5 per year for a total of 122.5? I feel like the offer was stated differently and made it seem like I was getting 160 lol
Have you joined a company with a lower title and did you regret it? Joined current company couple months ago after a two-year full time MBA, from a US top 10 business school. And I’m regretting it now.
How hot is too hot when you have 4 projects and 2 of them gotta be delivered on the same date (being the only associate in all of them...) https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/04/science/randall-munroe-xkcd-temperature.html?referringSource=articleShare
