Re: Referral for Bloomberg My company is moving but I need to stay in NYC for family reasons. I searched everywhere to find a similar culture to where I am now and I feel like I found that at Bloomberg. Right before Year-End I completed an interview for an HR Role but it’s been a standstill since. We left the call talking about the next phases of interviews so I was hopeful! Would a referral help kick start this again?

I’m struggling and need advice. I’ve been in a senior role at my company for 3+ years, doing the job of a Director / VP without the title and comp. My execs dangle the promo carrot with insane goals but when I (over)deliver, I’m told I need to do more to earn the promo. It’s clear they won’t acknowledge my value and are content to take full advantage of my IP. I’m exhausted, emotionally raw, burnt out and want to quit—but as the sole breadwinner, I’m terrified of the job market. What do I do?

Tech companies are mostly built up of 22ish-40ish year olds (not data, just how it feels) which makes sense as tech has been booming for only 20ish years. What happens in the next 10-20 years when the ones who are older for tech now, become actually old for the workforce. Do we get phased out by young people due to lack of relevancy? Or will we have 50-60 year old SAAS sales people, project managers, etc, still in the space and about to retire?

I am paid well(ish) - is it wrong that this frustrates me terribly? Is it wrong that sometimes when assigned a new case I want to ask “what exactly will YOU do today?”
