Looking for some advice on making the move abroad! It’s been my lifelong dream to live in London for a couple years. Ideally I’d like to move in 2022 or so. However, I’m not really sure how to go about this! I was hoping someone could guide me on how they went abroad and how difficult the process was? Whether it was to pursue an MBA, through work etc. I’m open to either option but just need a starting point and goal! For reference I’m 24 currently and will be moving solo :) thanks!
You know what’s crazy. As a Hijabi, I feel like the bar is set low sometimes. Lol. All I have to do is say something very basic and I can tell everyone is in awe. Like “wow, she speaks” —>
I’d be curious to hear people’s thoughts on a wealth tax. I agree with the host, the idea seems asinine but I’m open to changing my mind. Fun fact, Donald Trump supported a wealth tax in 1999 for severe than this.

Currently use Fidelity for all@investment accounts and 401(k). Thinking of doing backdoor Roth - does it make sense to open with Vanguard (or somewhere else) or keep with Fidelity? Friends have been advising to not keep it all under one. Thanks
Anyone on here know of any places in LA that are looking for a Jr CW?

This year our staff meetings have become stressful. People struggle to politely disagree, and I feel like we’re reprimanded for weird things (like too many people taking the same sick day). Any advice
No joke. I just found out one of our ADs takes his Apple monitor home when he decides to WFH because working off his laptop is annoying. I mean, isn’t that why you have a desk...
Default tax status for llc and corp?
I’ve had enough. I may or may not have ADHD but I damn think so, as well as people I’ve talked to about it. I know I am smart and can accomplish certain things/tasks, but I literally just can’t get my mind to it sometimes. It was bad in college and only got worse since I started working. How do I go about at least getting tested or what’s the the process? Thank you so much in advance.

Hello! I'm interested in getting into the tech/software side of SE. Currently working for a large manufacturer of power management solutions (>2year). Any tips on where I should start and what i should learn? I understand that learning the software/products is the first step! But which companies (from your experience) are more open/willing to hire Engineers outside of the field, who have the soft skills and ability to learn new technical information but aren't experienced in software. Thank you!
What would you guys say is a sign that a company is getting ready to lay people off? There's tons of rumors flying around, but it's hard to tell if they have any merit to them...

Switching from commission to salary-only.
I’m considering a less sales-oriented role (supporting some post-sales). It doesn’t pay commission, ie. will have a higher base but less overall earning potential.
Would you consider this? What reduction in cash should be expected going from a variable to fixed compensation? For example, if you made $200k today, would it be realistic to ask/expect $180k (10% cut) + equity to make up the difference?
I've accepted my first SE role and I'm wondering how I did on salary. I'm coming from a network consultant role where I primarily implemented projects. My background is strictly technical, but as a consultant its also very client facing. Overall 10 YoE. I live in a lcol area. My OTE is $175k (80/20). It's a good move for me from previous salary, wanting to compare it as an SE salary though. Given lack of sales background, I think I did good.
Hi everyone, I am currently working as an ISSO with about 5 years experience in Information Security. I am looking to switch it up and Sales Engineering roles peaked my interest. Any tips on how to make myself stand out
Sales Engineers, do you create new presentations every week, or do you tweak pre-existing ones?
Would you consider an offer for 50% base salary increase and ~60% total OTE increase if it meant giving up unvested equity in a startup? Leadership says IPO target is around 2 years away, but that was before the economy started heading down.
Anyone have some advice on breaking into tech sales without a degree? I have a family member that works in retail and is having a hard time getting by and I’m trying to help him pivot into a career that he’s interested in. Any help or advice will be appreciated!
