Dm me if you want referral to CRZ. I'd say shoot for 85 and see what they offer- may have lower offer plus sign on bonus. But let them negotiate you down, don't negotiate yourself down!

Has anyone addressed their ADHD with their boss directly? For example, I have a really hard time with long meetings. I can’t sit still and pay attention and I wonder if sharing this with my boss would be helpful or if it would raise red flags. Funny enough, my job is very detail oriented.

Cross posting this but could use the female perspective — Got a really substantial (~40%) mid year raise after I brought in a basically unsolicited competing offer from one of our peers. My firm typically only adjusts salary on an annual basis in March, and I’m pretty worried I’ll see a smaller than normal annual raise this spring to “make up for” my out of sequence mid year raise. Any advice on advocating for myself to ensure that doesn’t happen?

Thought experiment: Say you're exiting strategy consulting, looking at the typical opps and the crazy comp that comes with them. Then, all of a sudden, a corporate role comes up (strategy/finance/marketing etc.) in something you're 1000% passionate about. Slower sector, smaller company, lower prestige/trajectory, but you LOVE the product and industry (say a job at Specialized for a devout cyclist, or Activision Blizzard for the gamers). Would you go for it?
