I’ve only worked as a public interest attorney. I love what I do but obviously don’t get paid nearly as much as a big law attorney. I’ve never cared but I’m currently paying for a wedding, trying to buy a house, and have a baby soon after becoming a homeowner. Money would definitely help but I know I have some pros such as my work life balance. Any one else struggle with this? Making 200k+ sounds like so much money to me.

The people making $200K don't have time to plan weddings or spend a lot of time with a baby.

Is there an optimal percentage of your monthly income that you should allocate to a car payment? I’m looking to buy a new car and don’t necessarily know what my cap should be for a monthly payment. After expenses every month I have about $2.5k go into savings. So theoretically I could afford a $2k a month car payment (obviously not doing that). Curious on everyone’s thought on this?

Thoughts on how to handle? Give 1 week notice. Give notice 1 week before vacation and offer to work 1 week after vacation. Don't want to lose my 7 PTO days.

Was brought in to interview for a Director RA position. After an interview, the hiring manager decided I was a better fit as a Senior Manager.

The owner of the company forgot to tell their hiring manager they dont hire managers with direct reports as remote. So they bumped the role down to an individual contributor.

The role went from 200k range to 140k. I'm pretty frustrated.
