If airlines spend $39b on stock buybacks, why would they not sell shares to raise capital at a loss, before coming to the government for bailout?

It's precisely why borrowing money to fund stock buybacks in good times increase risk. You are mortgaging the future to buy something that is fairly valued or over valued and will only realistically sell it when it is undervalued. It is textbook value destruction and only makes sense in a short term or risk less environment.
Buying your own shares when you're undervalued as a way to use cash isn't bad, but almost no one does that.

Bain & Company Got an offer to join Bain as a 1st year AC at 2 YOE. Is it worth it for me to negotiate some tenure or is it better for me to start fresh? Assuming I do enter as 1st year AC, does Bain give early promotion if I perform really well?

Career advice?

I'm a relatively junior data engineer (2yoe), the only other engineer (senior) that trained me left about a 6 months ago and I negotiated a nice raise for the extra responsibilities.

My performance reviews have been stellar, but my manager is starting to look to hire a senior to help me deliver projects as we do lack capacity right now.

I feel like I might be missing an opportunity to ask for a promotion and hire a junior instead.

Any opinions/tips?

The hiring manager said I can do the role definitely but the reason they went with someone else was they had more breadth.

I recently got a promotion but my pay raise was 13%. I’ve heard the saying “if it isn’t at least 20%, it isn’t a real promotion”. However I also don’t want to look this gift horse in the mouth in the midst of a pandemic. What do you think I should do?

I just got a promotion, but I feel so unmotivated and anxious. My bosses are providing me with new opportunities, but I also feel like my work the past few months hasn’t been the best and I’ve made mistakes along the way. I feel like I’m one step from them realizing i’m not as good as they think I am. I’m not sure if I need a break or a career change.
