Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?

Which plane to pick? Both United flights, 20 min time difference, same price. One is a 737 MAX 9 and the other 737-900 (layout 3 per seat guru). Buying 1st class tickets.

But aside from that it’s a coin flip for me unless someone has some input

“My child is 24 months” or “My child is 2 years old”? Pet peeve of mine to hear any “x months” after 11.
Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid

Does anyone know of where to find remote part time work opportunities for older Indian women? My mom was a part-time after school teacher but has not been doing that due to covid (dad is high risk).
