Kinda impressive that the first thing the manager thought was “side gig” are you not paid enough to work without having to do side gig?


I don’t think so. I took a 30k paycut for this current job. But now My new job came with a 60k increase in base salary. Now I feel my salary is competitive. But the new company is also a large tech company so there’s that.




What a great feeling tbh


Congrats!! Good for you getting the pay bump 👏🏼

Can I ask your what your main tech stack is and how long you've been working in data visualization? I do work in that area a bit, but went to pivot from Systems Analyst to more of a Data Analyst or BI Engineer specific role.


Can you DM. Me


“A side job”, I love it 😂


And this ain’t Rodan + Fields.... congrats!!


Aawwwww this was cute

Biggest pet peeve in the office? I’ll go first. I’m really sensitive to scents so I hate when people eat lunch at their desk.

I always take my lunches away from my desk and other people who didn’t volunteer to smell it. Anyway though. What bugs you?

Can I get suggestions how to handle the time? should I repeat what others have done to me?
