Ugh. I’m really sorry. I don’t know how that struggle feels, but I am your ally. And I will keep trying to be better.

Oh you mean what I’m going through right now! Where I have no sense of work balance any more because I’m supposed to stop drop and roll for everyone like the proper indentured servant I am. Don’t dare have any feelings about it, speak about it or try to situate it because then you’re referenced as “sour” because you’re exhausted, feeling used and beat up but you’re the problem! Sorry master, I promise I’ll do better when I spend my evenings and weekends cleaning up your messes and just slapping a smile on my face while I feel like garbage! So glad I studied, stayed focused and built a career for this bullshit!

This rings so true for my experience; I really appreciate seeing that I'm not alone in this. I recently got paired up with a black woman as my mentor and am learning so much from her in the process. I'm a white woman, but am also non-binary, differently abled, and first generation to enter college/business. All of these attributes help me see the world differently, and I have the confidence to speak up about the bullshit that gets played off as normal. I'm hoping we can embrace intersectional diversity and learn from each other's experiences 🙌

also -- recognize that there's a lot of nuance between different kinds of visible & invisible diversity. Wouldn't want anyone to mistake that every experience is the same -- just that there's so much we all can learn from each other.

As someone who has lived the struggle, this is accurate, stressful, and demoralizing AF.

Is there a typical raise percentage at a year mark? He heard 3-5% from a friend but that seems high to me for a yearly raise. Friend works at a startup, it’s his first full year there and he doesn’t know how much to ask for. He also is also up for promotion around December / January

Ever been “leapfrogged” for promotion by someone more junior in your own team? Any advice on coping? Not confirmed/announced yet but I’ve heard it from an inside source. I’ve had nothing but positive feedback all year, they knew I wanted a promotion and had made the right noises about getting one when possible, and I didn’t think this colleague was performing significantly better so hurting pretty bad about it... Trying to keep it in perspective of “at least I still have a job” but this sucks. 🙃
