Looking to buy a portable laptop for myself. I’m a data engineer by profession and most of the time spend time on the company machine which is a pretty beefy windows laptop. But thinking of getting a MacBook Pro for myself. My personal machine is mainly used for pet projects, certification exams, online learning and rarely for consultation in academia seminars and freelance work (which is usually in the cloud). Mac is good but it’s a bit on the expensive end. What’s your personal machine?

Had a referral and HR phone screen for S&O Senior Manager position at a small Chicago based tech start up. Call went well and they asked my salary expectations and I mentioned $180K. Recruiter said that far exceeds￼ their pay bands but would check. He just reached out and said “there is still a large gap in comp expectations. Despite that, are you still interested in the opp? If so let’s have another quick call to recalibrate”….what should I say on this call? Should I budge or is this a tactic?
I’ve been offered a job with about 40% of the comp being a “target bonus” (ad/tech company). What is a target bonus and are the targets even attainable?

So, I’m leaving and my leadership is pissed. I feel like their attitude is “well you’re leaving so now I just need you so I can download your brain.” and I’ve never felt more like an object and I’m trying not to internalize how guilty I feel about causing others to pickup my slack. Context: solid roll-off plan and I did all of my deliverables for the next month by working through the weekend. Any advice on how to reframe my thinking? Alternatively, AITA? They did just promote me.
