Considering leaving to take a partner position at a small firm. Is it worth it? Would only be 2 partners with a staff of 10. Comp would be 250k on the low end and probably top out around 350k. Would take 3-4 years to get to this level of comp as would be buying 10% per year up to 40% of the firm. Am I stupid for not taking this? Currently manager making 125k. Comp first year as junior partner would be 120k with 10% ownership.

People who are more asexual/aromantic, how do you explain it to people? People always ask if I’m LGB and I just respond that I’m none of the above. When I was in college, I knew I wasn’t hetero, but I wasn’t sure what I was. So I just did what everyone else did. Years later, I realized that I’m asexual but people hear things about me from my past and ask if I’m LGB. Do you just say you’re LGB and move on? I don’t feel like giving a 30 minute lecture every time someone asks.

The suspense is KILLING ME! Currently waiting to hear back if I get a job offer or not. It’s dragged out 3 days since wage negotiation. One minute they act like I got the job the next I feel unsure. They told me it could come down to whoever asked for the least amount of money… I stayed within the range they gave. I have a lot of experience and meet all of the qualifications and then some so I asked for the mid-high range. Hopefully it wasn’t too high! Just needed to vent…
