Microsoft is the good choice 👌

56 vs 100 is significant number to the ignore

Brand value will not pay your bills or increase your bank balance.

If it is a choice between Microsoft and an IT services player like Cognizant, I would suggest go for Microsoft. In the long term, you would have a much more fulfilling career and growth prospects in a company like Microsoft. It would be a life changing event. So I would suggest think long term and go for Microsoft.

The head of my practice said he wants to use his father’s vaccine card (same name) to go to bars and restaurants. It is a crime. I wish he didn’t tell me. Who do I report it to? The firm?

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
