Money isn’t everything. Ask questions. Make sure you are a good fit for the culture. A stressful and poorly functioning company can really mess with your health

Sorry, for me it kind of is everything. I enjoy the lifestyle and benefits it brings. I find ways to address the stress that comes with it and some of those coping tools are available due to my salary.

Additionally if your company seems like it's good but you are feeling very overworked/overwhelmed on your current team, realize that there are other teams at your company or opportunities at other companies that could be better suited for you.

You're right, OP. It doesn't make sense for people to keave amazing jobs with great culture and good wlb for 10% more money at a place with bad culture and bad wlb. But remember that many people find themselves in a bad situation to begin with. If you're already in a stressful environment with bad culture, you might as well go to a different stressful environment that pays 40% more.

agreeeee

Agreed OP. But I asked all the questions and came to this job because it fit my needs. Then I got promoted up to a level where I'm now bad a my job, a la "The Peter Principle".

Problem is, to leave to a job I am good at (manager, senior) or take a demotion at my current employer to do the job I liked, I would really have to take a pay cut.

I don't want a pay cut.

I'll keep accepting the money I guess

I understand. Nobody wants a pay cut. But for myself when I’m not in a job I like, I spend more money trying to get satisfaction from my life outside of work. Sometimes making less money is more rewarding in the long run.

For PwC, Does Basic Benefits Salary = My Base Salary?

That means my supplemental life insurance amount that I pay for per paycheck is equal to 10x my base salary?

(i.e my current pay is $66,300, 10x supplemental life insurance is $6.70 per paycheck check, the total life insurance amount is $670,000?)

Took my first ever sick day today on account of my very poor and worsening mental health. Just could not bring myself to put in another 14 hour day with back to back meetings and constant activity. Felt very guilty but I honestly wish I could be more honest and actually share with my manager about why I took a day off.

For those also going through this, any tips on how you manage yourself day to day? What self talk tends to help?
