My best friend has been really into making friends with my boyfriend’s friend group for the past 2 yrs. I’m glad everyone gets along but it’s been bugging me how much she tries to do stuff with them. The guys in his friend group are nice but their GFs have bullied me since my bf and I started talking. My friend always wants to include his friends in our plans knowing I have really separated myself from them for my own mental health, the sake of my relationship, and that I don’t want to see them

Went on vacation with a couple friends and they’d actually never heard of FIRE. They both spend a ton of money on things I don’t find worth it (totally fine) but the thing that bugged me was that as they make more money I can hear how many excuses they make for purchasing stuff, vs being honest about why. “I literally have zero time to go to the grocery store” “i often need random things to be delivered to me on the same day and have zero time to pick it up”. It made me worry that maybe we…

Looking for salary range/guidance for 5 YOE, account director, healthcare/pharma/biotech public relations based in NYC? Not up for a promotion this year to VP but looking for leverage in merit raise discussions.

I took the role I am in about a year ago and it just has not been what was promised and a huge step back. I have found a good place and am content but not overly happy with my place in the company. A smaller competitor reached out for a vp position that is a huge step up responsibility wise. There would be a pay raise but not huge so money is not the motivator here. Is this crazy to seriously consider? I hate to burn bridges. I have been told I am on the partner fast track. Thoughts? Advice?
