Hello, I work at company that does early intervention for kids with ASD! I got prompted into being manger/coordinator role where my salary was increase to $65,000 and I accepted it and now I feel like I’m getting underpaid for the extra work I have to do. I’ve looked online and ranger for coordinator role is $75,000-$85,000 depending on experience. I have two years experience now being in my new role. My contact renews in April, I’m thinking this is best time to ask for raise. Any thoughts?
I got a really sweet email from OC (female) today after settling a case, thanking me and my supervisor (who also happens to be a female) for being reasonable and cooperative, while still strongly advocating for my clients. I get the billable requirement, I get that the profession is naturally adversarial, but this email gives me hope that just maybe a tide is turning in this profession, especially as more women join. Would love to hear more stories like this.

One of my best friends was cheated on horribly in her last relationship. She recently initiated becoming exclusive with a guy who she’s paranoid is still seeing other people. In turn, she went on a date with another guy and now has a second date with him (the first guy doesn’t know). She’s admitted she’s self sabotaging but I’m trying to figure out how else I can help be there for her… any advice?

Today I learned that younger women are now avoiding using capitalized letters because they think it seems aggressive. Did y’all know this?! Are capital letters the new periods at the ends of sentences?
What does it mean if a guy you’re serious about always flakes about returning calls or making calls? We are mutually serious about one another. He is a genuine guy, but I don’t know if he is stringing me along or if it is because his company keeps him quite busy. He has his own business. Thoughts, ladies? I didn’t even get to talk to him once over Christmas break and am sorta bummed. There is no other lady in the picture. Thanks in advance...

I’m on an exponential trajectory at my current consulting job, will likely make partner in 4 years tops. I’ve just started communicating my notice to the partners I work with and they’re casting so much doubt in my head. New job, VP, global company, high visibility. Large base increase, double % bonus than current, equity…however, their point is that in consulting, I’ll far pass all of that in 4-5 years and keep going. I worry about giving away my book of business and failing in industry…
When I have gotten negative or even “constructive” feedback in the past, at first I can accept it gracefully and analyze and decide how to use it to improve, then within 24 hours I’m stuck and beat myself up and can’t get out of this negative self-talk spiral. Anyone do this and figure out how to stop the “omg - I am the WORST”
loop in your head? Also? Wonder if men do this to themselves or is this a uniquely female thing.
Good morning!! I snooped a little and my bf of a year got me jewelry for this weekend (Valentine’s Day and our anniversary). What is an equivalent you all have given to your male SOs? I bought a couple of small things like candy and going to get him a cook book I feel like he would like but struggling to feel it would match jewelry

It’s been a rough couple months professionally for my boyfriend. The job he was at got to be toxic and draining, so was interviewing trying to get a new job, then he finally had an offer and was interviewing with another firm too. The one that gave him the offer only raised his salary by 6k - he was at a nonprofit so was already not making very much. The other company would have been giving him 95k, guaranteed raises, etc. Realistically it was the type of role that would have truly changed..
I need a supportive group hence coming here and not the company bowl. In my 10 years working , I have never found a place more people friendly , employee focused than EY. But today a peer told a staff as an immigrant She will have to more careful than someone who belong here on her actions cause actions may have negative consequences like she not able to be with family whereas he doesn’t. He also suggested that she needs to be careful as when layoffs happen that immigrant will be let go first.
