If you haven’t watched “Nomadland”, stop what you are doing and watch it right now. Then think about your posts complaining about a lack of salary raises.

It is so important to learn gratitude without comparison. But nomadland is a great movie anyway.

It’s a great movie and I watched it twice. I honestly think the movie is not about income inequality or anything like that, I think it’s a movie to honor those who choose the nomad lifestyle. Like Fran in this movie refused the opportunities offered by her sister and the man (forgot his name) to form a family and live a stable and “normal” life. What I love about this movie is it’s not trying to condescendingly criticize and rank order life choices people make.

😅 why do we have to compare ourselves to the homeless though? Should we always be content with what we have considering the people who live in poverty and war? And lastly, we deserve that raise!

That movie was more about grief and existential crisis but the rest of your point still stands. And the people who reacted in anger here are just projecting.

See a lot of comp posts from consultants - have any of you considered enterprise technology sales? Certainly a different job that requires different knowledge/skills but I see parallels/ think a consultant could do well in sales if they’re okay with a lot of rejection.

ACN SM here. I did the math yesterday and my annual base salary/no. of hours worked per week (either actively working or stressing about work) comes to peanuts!

I'm torn.. lower salary/better WLB vs more $$$ but no life
