Mid-level here. Has anyone gotten their firm to approve their doing work at a deep discount and, if so, what strategies did you use? A potential client approached me directly about a small matter (~20 to 30 hr amicus brief). The potential client (gov’t) pays a standard rate ~40% lower than mine, but I want to take on the project because it would be a good professional opportunity (e.g., high profile case & client) and of course the lower rate won’t affect my comp directly. 🤷‍♀️ All advice welcome!

I am interviewing for a new IT Manager position. I started putting out soft feelers and then hit the hunt harder. The problem: I have one offer and need to give an answer by next Wednesday.

Do I accept the offer I have, which is a good one or wait for the other two to finalize and possibly miss out altogether?

How do you feel about your job? Either your current position right now or your general role as a SWE - do you genuinely enjoy it and have a passion for it, tolerate it and collect the paycheck, or hate it? Does the industry you’re in have an impact on your answer - e.g. FAANG vs. fintech vs. ed tech? Personally after switching companies I’ve gone from hating to tolerance, but I feel like I’m never going to be excited about what I’m doing.
