Would you take the following offer: Base - ~$180K; Bonus - ~$30K; RSU - ~$15k; Total Comp - ~$225K; F500 firm, not tech, mid-west, individual contributor role with potential for senior roles in 2 years. Good WLB, but not the most interesting industry. Currently working at a T2 Strategy Consulting firm, 2.5 years out of a T10 MBA. $200K all in. 7 YoE. Happy with consulting so far and performing well, but would like better WLB. How much better are tech exit ops given SF cost of living?

I have heard rumblings of another emergency project and don't want to do it unless I get compensated up front somehow for it. What leverage do I have, and what is reasonable to ask for?
Currently working on plan C of a honeymoon as we don’t expect to be able to go Europe in June/July as hoped. Plan A and B were variations of Italy (relax) and Spain (mountain biking). Hoping to use bonvoy points. Any US centered suggestions? Maybe refocusing on golf/warmth/spa/food now.

Final night of a 3 night stay at a Staybridge in a nice part of a nice city the other night paid completely with IHG points. Came back at 2am to find cockroaches all over the bathroom. Called front desk and they didnt have bug spray nor an additional room. Woke my friend up at 2:30am and my wife and I ended up crashing on her couch. As we left that night night manager said "I actually have a two bedroom but didn't offer it to you because you were only two people". Manager calls wife (continued

If I’m facing a particular issue while working with another member of our team, or I think my bonus needs to be extra good this year, are those topics that would be appropriate to discuss?
