Look up Marriott's campaign to eliminate desks from rooms. Apparently Millennials don't use them. 😑 So scared for Starwood merger...

Don't worry; Millennials love working from their beds or from strangely shaped chairs. And without a desk, you'll have more space to socialize in your room.

Hi everyone, Is £48k a decent salary in London? That's roughly 3k net/month. I'm a 27M, single. I'm thinking of renting a room for 750/800 a month, that leaves me with ~£2100, if I get the Oyster card that's another 150, and for groceries/going out I guess I won't need more than 600/month. That allows me to save ~£1400/month. Am I being too optimistic/unrealistic? Thanks!

Hi Fishes, I recently got shortlisted for a Product Manager position at Tracxn. There’s also an IPO coming up which is the reason I had applied. But I have read some horrifying reviews about the company on Glassdoor, indeed and other forums.

Offer letter asks for professional references, this would be my second professional job. Should I decline to provide? I feel awkward still employed and having someone reach out to current employer
