I haven't taken a single vacation or sick day in over a year. I'll lateraling to another firm next month (pending conflicts). Would it be in poor taste schedule a vacation prior to giving my two weeks notice? I love my group and I don't want to burn bridges.
I’m currently an IB analyst at a no name shop in LA. I’m employed as a 1099 and I currently get 70k/year + 5% of deal fees I’m staffed on. This makes my all in extremely variable as I made 210K in ‘19 and 70k in ‘20. We let someone go this year and I asked for a raise and he bumped me up to to that 5% from 4%. However we just signed up 4 new clients, which would greatly increase my workload as I’m the only junior guy. Would it be messed up to ask him to bump me to 100k base or I quit?

How come - given all this shit about health/pharma work having *purpose* - shops like Area 23 only hit awards? Because, I dunno, no-one has ever shown how that saves lives.
I’m a manager/technical architect making 155. I had a boutique reach out and ask for comp range. I said 180 flexible and they immediately ended the convo. Is 180 really that crazy for boutiques? Im in the low code space at the moment w/8 years of experience and a pretty solid pedigree? Low-med COL if it matters.
