Is it fair to ask for the sign-up bonus or extra equity in lieu of the 2021 bonus ($25K), unvested RSUs ($20k), and educational reimbursement I will need to repay ($24K) if I change jobs before the year end? It’s for a new manager role in the industry and I don’t want to sound like a clown asking for a $70K sign up on the $160K base comp…
What is the day to day like for a role in international corporate banking? Seems like they have different industry coverage groups such as fig, tmt, industrials, etc. How is pay and bonus?

Anyone know of any agencies open to a fully remote copywriter (East Coast, USA, if that matters, but I’m not fussy)? I'm struggling to get back into the real agency world after some time in small-market purgatory. Also, if there are any CDs willing to check out my book and give me an honest assessment on whether they think it's good enough to get a job with, it would be much appreciated. Can DM anyone willing to have a look.

Anyone leave before their bonus (before knowing what the amount was) and then regret it when it turned out to be a huge bonus? Got a great offer that I want to take but feeling FOMO by leaving the bonus on the table. And yes, I tried moving the start date and asking them to cover the lost bonus but they said no and it’s still a better offer and it would be irresponsible not to take it.

How long does it take to get from Manhattan to JFK on Thursday afternoon, if my flight is at 6:00PM?
I am sooo tired of this!! Am I the only one who senses that the accounting and finance profession is amongst the most disrespected in the world. I’m in the middle of studying for my CPA and honestly feel I should quit and go back to school for something random. I legit feel I am very disrespected amongst my peers and a majority of them are not half as successful monetarily as me. Is this just me or do others feel this as well?
