Capital One Power Day had three interviews in the morning. HR calls in between to say if you have a fourth in the afternoon. They told me this depends on caser availability. Is this really true, or does something else determine the 4th case?
My base is 93k as a SA with 3 YOE in dc. I declined $135k base at a small firm bc of some reasons few months ago. I’m getting another offer at a smaller firm with 12k sign on incentive and 130k-160k base as a senior/lead full stack engineer. They gave me that offer before the interview. I did well on the interview and now they want to discuss compensation and the offer/benefit details. The money is so tempting. I wonder should I ask for a counter offer. I really enjoy working at Accenture great WLB

For the first time in my life, I have a mouse problem in my apt. It’s a pre-war coop. Saw one for the first time in July in the middle of the day (!) landlord had someone come out and plug holes from where I saw it come from. Three months later, found a mouse in a glue trap and then some droppings. Been going crazy caulking and filling any opening with steel wool and caulk, but does anyone have experience with this?? At what point do you just move? Don’t know if I can take this anymore.

For my yearly review I tried to request for a bigger compensation with a few reasons on how I have taken up more responsibilities and helped sustain/grow business to which I receive a response where they still need a follow up email from me to justify my effort in the past year. The people making the decision are all new so they haven’t been a part of my journey. I know I deserve this raise. How do I make it more convincing?

Can’t help but feel invisible in my current situation- I’ve been pursuing a transfer for over a year (within my same group) and even though I’ve repeatedly asked for help and pulled in directors and partners —I keep getting pawned off to different people. This has cost me a promotion this year although I’m a high performer and my pay is at the high end of my bracket. Meanwhile, white colleagues are getting promoted each year (unheard of). I am told that i’m getting paid well so to be ‘happy’

What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too

How do you know when you have enough money? I got laid off in the spring, but don’t feel a pressing need to get a new job right away. Have 3 rental properties, all paid off, get about $3k/mth net from that, have about $200k in a 401k and another $200k in more-liquid investments. I spend less than $2k/mth and feel happy and comfortable. Not married and no kids... but would like that one day, so thinking of maybe saving some more money for that. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice?
