I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that you are all doing a great job with this ridiculous, unprecedented juggling act of trying to be a parent, teacher, lawyer and human. Hang in there!

We love each other but needed to break up. He had a recent family trauma & other stressors (law school mostly) that initiated the breakup. He couldnt afford to be emotionally present within us and the things at home (which i dont blame him for and fully respect)
I want to support him but also balance my own desires and expectations. Ive accepted we’re broken up fr. ended over 1mo ago

Does anyone know the bonus range %s for an IFS manager?

I have a manager who doesn’t seem to like me very much. Talks to me in a super condescending tone like I wasn’t an experienced hire & know what I’m doing. He will flat out ignore me even on calls when I say hi or good morning.
I’m not sure if it’s because he’s “old school” but once had other team mates in his office (all male) for lunch and didn’t invite me (the only female on this team). I thought I had a super progressive team but every day is telling me that’s not the case.
