My girlfriends and I booked a non-refundable room for our New York trip coming up in a month. The reviews were ok on the booking website, but as we're reading more recent reviews on tripadvisor and google, the hotel is quite horrendous (bed bugs, mice in rooms, mold/mildew in bathroom, hair on bedsheets and towels, luggage being stolen in an unsupervised luggage area....). Is there anyway we can get a full refund for the room? I'd rather book another place before the trip than take our chances

My boss and the leadership team have been talking to me about a promotion + raise for 6+ months. A month ago another woman on the same account who is not as senior, is known as a bad manager + has far less experience than me got the exact promotion I wanted (which accounts to oversee) and she got a title increase. She also gain 3 direct reports while I lost one. After writing this it’s pretty obvious I should walk. I was in denial now I’m mourning what could have been/ my naivety. I feel a fool

Hello, All! I'm looking for recommendations on inspirational content for women leaders. I follow TEDWomen, many podcasts, and the Women's Conference among other sources. I'd love to hear a fresh perspective on business, trends, tech, marketing, equality in the workforce, etc. I'd love to learn something new. I'm at the VP level and have started a couple of companies, so nothing too junior, but open to many topics. Please share any speakers, books, webinars, or events that you may come across.

3. I get to specialist on the parts of the project I like most and lead the creative direction for the rest.
4. Get to create great relationships with other talents
Do you still feel passionate love years later in your marriage? I love spending time with my SO, I love their personality and still find them attractive but I feel like that feeling of being “in love” is dissipating. It’s gotten to the point where I cringe a little when they try to get physical with me. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. Thoughts?

Is thr any criteria or even new joinees can be eligible?
Considering moving from a large regional (currently a senior) to a small company with about 20 employees. The new opportunity does not allow remote work, but is a 40 hour workweek generally. The pay would be about a 33% raise. Seems like a decent trade off, but flexibility is very important as a new parent (3 month old at home, wife works but not currently). Any potential pitfalls I should consider? I left my firm previously and have been back for over a year at this point, so… continued
Should I "like" my job?
