Product owner role
Airbus vs VMware
Fixed is same in both, Airbus is paying higher variable pay amount and hence higher ctc.
I am also in the middle of interviews with some other firms but for now I have these 2 offers. Which do you think would be right considering WLB, opportunities and hike/growth. If someone from VMware can mention what's happening within the firm with respect to Broadcom acquisition, that will be helpful

How is the rental market these days? I’m looking for a 1 bed at ~$3k in Back Bay or South End and am flexible on move in. Will I get a better deal in August or should I wait for 9/1?
Should I take this new job?
Been at current agency for a year, loved it and love my team. Pros: Benefits are great, as is the mentorship and work is generally quite stable. Cons: Lower paid
The new agency is smaller and benefits aren’t as good but I’ll get a +45% pay increase and title bump. Work is different to what I’m used to which is both exciting and daunting (imposter syndrome will no doubt kick in!).
Ideal situation would have been to stay in current role another year or two... help!
I am working at 12 lpa, having one offer of 20lpa fixed (remote) from one US company. Having 5YOE in QA selenium uft capybara.
Should I continue looking for better offers?
If yes, what should be my expectations?
Also, say if I get another offer, will it be okay to say No to the previous offer? I mean they trusted me and gave more than expectation earlier.

10 days to turn around a RFP.
Agency: request schedule Q&A session
Client: Let me check schedules. Wednesday next week works for our team... (day 6 of RFP) 🤦♂️
We got a new business email that reads, “Interested in quadrupling my business in six months. Contact me if you can help.” If there’s a marketing firm that can do this, please contact me too.

Hello! Curious if anyone has any thoughts on new year new business resolutions. Maybe it’s the fact that 2020 sucks but I’m already planning for the new year. I’m going to try and schedule time better for outreach and social media marketing. I tend to be too reactionary with my time.
Anybody care to share tactics for negotiating rates with procurement? Know they’re bluffing to drive all competing agencies down, but not sure what leverage we have to push back.
I’ve been working on a pitch that continues to get delayed and it’s poorly managed. The RFI was due in July. Then days AFTER submission I received an email from the consultant saying we now had until August. End of September rolls around and frankly I had forgotten about this 100-page beast. They want a meet and greet….the following week. The day before the meet and greet we get a list of questions (that aren’t easy softballs). Now 2 weeks later and nothing. What a gross feeling this process is
