I have 2 kids, almost 6 and almost 2, and my spouse also works full time. We live a pretty scheduled life and that seems to help fit everything in. Simple things like meal planning so we aren’t trying to figure out dinner at the last minute seem to help.

Nature of work - What kind of work can I expect from these companies? 3. would I get the opp to use any authoring Tools? 4. Work life balance - which is better? 5. Increments - avg % hike? 6. Culture - which is better?

Im starting a new job but still employed somewhere else. I was trying to be open about staying at BOTH places. My current job won’t let me be part time because they don’t allow “set schedules”. Yet I am one of the only reliable and loyal employees in the department, and currently working a set schedule. So why will they not let me continue a set schedule but with different hours? This place is more focused on strict policies and not actually trying to work their employees and being flexible.

Please share ur experience with Naggaro.

How's the work life balance? Glassdoor reviews are full of "long working hours" and hence wanted to know if it's the same with non-consulting folks as well? How far is it true across the organisation?

Please help me shed some light to decide.
Thanks.

There’s no such thing as a perfect job.

I know there are definitely worse out there so it’s hard to put my foot down and resign, I could just stick it out for a year but am feeling demotivated and too exhausted to do anything else but sleep after hours/weekends. Have you ever started working somewhere and although nothing overtly wrong or terrible about the place / colleagues, it just didn’t feel like the right fit & if so, what did you do?

Advice re: office crush

I’m a junior and he’s a senior in the same group with ~20 people. He doesn’t supervise me, but we aren’t at our largest office, so we might still bump into each other awkwardly if things go wrong. We are both single.

I’ve been holding my feelings back hard. (He still invites me to group/office outings, so pretty sure he senses nothing weird.) I know it’s hard to find someone like him though, and I wonder if I really should just silently kill my feelings for him?
