Me and a few other colleagues had shoots different yesterday. Every single one of us expressed later that night that we felt it went so badly, we could be fired. Now I’m wondering if...

there’s something to be said about the company on a macro level, since every single one of us were put into can’t-win situations and forced to “make it work”. Apparently we’ve all been feeling this way for a while but it’s so taboo to talk about that sort of thing with colleagues. This industry can be so cut-throat.

Do you like being targeted to fail. Do your best then best the shit out of detractors! You want to fail?

One of the primary aims of the criminal justice reform movement is to help ex-convicts re-enter the workforce by sealing criminal records, and making it more difficult for employers to judge applicants based on criminal history. The idea is that people are redeemable and capable of reform. Yet the same movement thoroughly enjoys getting people fired and publicly shaming them for making arguments they find “offensive”. A rapist is capable of reform, but not someone who makes a dumb tweet. Got it.

Given the 🔥 hiring market, did the layoffs 9-12 months ago cost firms more to just hire a bunch of people back? Firms paid severance back then to just now pay on boarding plus signing bonus plus training plus staffing.

VP at firm who is a strong sponsor offered to give warm intros at funds where he knows senior folks (Wharton alumni). I appreciate the sentiment and assume it’ll be informational but I have no idea what to ask these senior folks nor what to expect from the convo. I’d ask associates about the firm culture, their past deals, the pe landscape, and their responsibilities and say to keep in touch if there are open opportunities, but what should I be asking VPs and above? And what CTA to end with?

Not really sure what board is proper for this. But has anyone had an experience where your boss required paperwork for a raise? I started my job as an account manager at a less than reasonable salary, but I was under the impression that I would be able to grow and would have help. A lot of work is dumped on me at one time and all the responsibility falls to me, it's often way to much work for one person. I tried to negotiate a raise with my boss and lead with the fact that I was moving to the area and the salary was not conducive to rent here. He cut me off after my first point and said he'd figure it out. I never got to tell him about my workload. Long story short he required a lease agreement for me to get this raise. It took quite a while to get one... had a few places fall through. My landlord is in the middle of moving so was only able to forward me a PDF of the document that was unsigned, until she has time to meet. Now my boss wants a signed lease with all my roommates signatures too. This is not part of the contract I signed that simply says "provide a lease agreement"... tips?
