I’ll start! A casual glass of Sauvignon is usually my go-to. When I’m stressed, Casa Migos tequila.

So depends on my mood and the weather. In cooler months I love Manhattans and Sazeracs. In warmer months, I go for a gin rickey, Negronis, and Pimms Cups.

Sometimes I’m in more of the mood for wine. For white - Gruner Vietliner or Gewurztraminer. For red - Temperanillo or Malbec.

Six years at B4 now. I don't have the fire in me I used to have for my career. Really wanted to make a partner one day but that aspiration has almost disappeared. I now look for a way to slack, do bare minimum only when it's absolutely necessary and have zero desire to do anything above and beyond. Have been interviewing outside of public for a while without success. How do I get my fire back? I miss that feeling.

Hi everyone
I’m interviewing at Slack and the recruiter is fantastic. She told me to take some time to think about my comp ask but that I should use my current salary at Meta as a guide but to go higher as staying at the same rate won’t do anything for the gender pay gap. I’m thinking of saying that I would like 15% higher but would also love to get an idea of what the salary range for a L6 or L7 marketer at Slack would be just to see if my expectations are in line.
Thanks in advance!

Perhaps the correct response to fatigue over endless video meetings would be to rethink meetings and schedule fewer with only needed attendees? Meetings were broken pre-pandemic. Zoom is just putting a face on the problem. We don’t need more phone calls.

Considering switching from consulting to sales engineering/presales.

Curious about which level to aim for given that I'm coming in with 15+ YoE.

Also curious about switching away from the technology stack that I've mostly built my expertise around (EPM/CPM) to more broader analytics / SaaS toolsets... How hard is that transition?
