In my early thirties, still an Engagement Manager only making $355k basic, plus benefits and guarenteed minimum bonus of $100k. What did I do wrong?

Not trying to put people down, but seems there are far too many people on the hamster wheel just churning and in need of validation.

Any thoughts? Am I off base?

Has anyone been on the fence about switching jobs before starting a family?

Would love to start soon but I’ve been on the fence about switching companies. My current employer has pretty solid benefits for leave and healthcare but it’s a stressful role with a lot of chaos. I originally contemplated switching companies to somewhere less stressful but am worried that I’ll be starting from zero as a new employee and may not have the same benefits. Should I just wait until after to change jobs?

Just realized a firm partner has a pattern of treating female employees poorly. Except for the associate who brings in the big money, of course. But it's a trend, and the only reason he doesn't take it as far with me as he does with others is because I do EVERYTHING and he is screwed if I just up and leave. If you've experienced this, how did you deal with it? And yes I am trying to leave, the job market here is a little tough right now.
