Are you a community manager OP? Do you at least like your brand? people you work with? If none of these, it’s all sucking the life out of you and it’s time to go.

Thanks for the concern. I’m not a designated CM... Just venting since it’s the most tedious part of my day.

Solve a debate for me I think my husband is way underpaid. He has 5 years of experience in all kinds of dev but has specialized in cloud computing.

What would you think a remote employee should be making with 5 years of experience.

Question: had a prescreen for a role with Raymond James yesterday. Recruiter never called. Made the appointment 8 days prior. Followed up with an email asking if maybe they needed to reschedule. No response. How would you all handle this? The HQ is close to me in Tampa, and the company seems solid overall. I’d like to work there, but is this a red flag for the firm, or just an individual? Any RJ employees have and positive/negative things about the firm? Now I’m starting to question it some.

Hi all, Noob question. When I am sourcing, I tend to find candidates who are a great fit but then wouldn’t work for 1 reason or another. for example. 3 months into their current role so the likely hood of wanting to move is low. What tools do you use to make a note of these otherwise perfect candidates? Do you have a spreadsheet? Do you use LinkedIn projects? Just keen to know best practices! Please share away 😊

Ok honestly if I don’t have anything to do and creatives are still working ...I’m outta here. I’m not staying for moral support to watch how you work. Just like I don’t expect you to be in the office


I’ve been back in the office since April/May on a very limited basis, and what I’ve learned is that creatives and account people should not be placed in a covid-spaced conference room together for long periods of time. I’m not disparaging our account team - they are extremely smart and overall fantastic - but there’s a reason why one needs space from the other. It’s like putting two attack fish in a bowl.
