What is wrong with me? I recently landed what I think is my dream exit with a FAANG doing personally meaningful work at a 60% raise...

...but I just feel dread about having to move far away to a smaller-yet-higher-CoL city, making new friends during a pandemic, watching my friends celebrate getting out of one, my role actually disappointing me and ending up lonely and miserable.

I feel like I made a huge mistake. What do I do?

I’ve been extremely busy. Because of this, I have less patience for the constant follow up required for me to get things out the door (I’m talking about weeks of unanswered e-mails and phone calls). I have been finding it difficult to raise the issue because everyone seems appreciative and many partners (including the ones who are causing the unnecessary stress) go out of their way to tell me what a fantastic job I’m doing. Any suggestions as to how to raise this without jeopardizing my status?

I was given a promotion 6mos ago & told that the position was a lateral move & a raise would be given at my 6 month mark. Throughout my time at time at this company I’ve realized that they call people in to give their raise on the exact date of milestones (i.e: 6 mos, 1yr, & so on). It’s now been one week since my 6 months in this new position. I’d like to reach out to my boss and set up a meeting to review my work & discuss a raise. Should I wait a bit longer or should I set this up now?
