I’m from one of the world’s most underdeveloped countries in Africa and all I want to do is leave. People keep telling me to stay and make it better and while I do agree to that in principle, at every single level, public or private, everyone here is either corrupt or incompetent. If I stay I’d just be harming myself and not helping anyone. Worst part is that there’s not a single PM role here, so when my overseas contract runs out I might be in a tough spot. Just wanted to get it off my chest

I just recently left big 4 in July to pursue a role at a fintech company.

Should I stick it out or look for something else even though I’ve only been here 2 months?

Will there be a salary bubble like the housing bubble? Hearing how much people with 2-7 yrs experience are getting offered to move companies is blowing my mind. At some point this is not going to be sustainable and salaries will drop back down to reality. However, I am concerned that all of those folks with inflated salaries will get in situations they can’t support after the correction. Then what happens?

I recently transitioned to wfh full-time, in house. Amazing gig - I’m not complaining - but I literally never have to wear suits or anything fancy. Coworkers wear t-shirts, rarely blouses. My background is litigation, so I’m used to wearing sweaters, cardigans, suits, dresses. I don’t want to be the only one wearing business casual outfits but I can’t bring myself to wear a tank top/t-shirt and sweats/leggings every day. Advice for what to wear to wfh now that I’m just dressing for me? (Cont.)

I don’t have much experience traveling in (international) business class. I recently upgraded a flight for 3 people but I am hesitant to pay again to reserve the seats. As far as I know they’ll let me choose the seats day before departure. Question — am I taking any risk by not assigning seats? I’m guessing since I already paid, they’ll hold the seats for us. Granted we may or may not be able to sit together, I just want to make sure they’ll hold 3 seats.
