Yeah, this is something I've been thinking about a lot lately. Billionaires are not a good thing for society. Are you familiar with Anand Giridharadas? He talks a lot about this in his book "Winner Takes All".

And yes I agree, there is no way someone can become a billionaire ethically. No matter what, the billionaire CEO has to be exploiting others to become that rich

Wow. 95% of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is just invested in the most profitable companies. I always end up getting so disheartened when I learn about people that I admired.

The book is “Bit Tyrants,” not a lot in it that felt like brand new info for me but it was a quick and easy read!

What's the problem with billionaires if they are producing good things for the world? Look at Elon. Unquestionably doing things that are good for the planet. What's the matter with him accumulating wealth because of that?

Also, I think it’s selfish to hoard more wealth then one can spend in a lifetime while others starve, are homeless, are working multiple jobs just to survive.

Have been hunting desperately for childcare bc spouse and I are both FT lawyers trying to handle 4 immunocompromised elementary age kids at home but have been striking out. Have even been considering having one of us take a leave, going part time (career suicide/knock us off partner track) or quitting. Just found someone highly recommended, experienced, patient, etc. Interview went super well but candidate disclosed they are in recovery for substance abuse, last relapse 2 yrs ago. DUI. Thoughts?

Few weeks ago I did the final round for a Sales Strategy and Operations role but didn't get the offer. Was told by my recruiter that I only have to do the RRK for all future interviews since the other interviews went very well and I would be targeted for L4 placement. I'm interviewing for a new role in Sales Stratops - would it be reasonable to ask for 200k TC (130k base, 15% bonus, 50-60k in RSUs) Current TC: 160k YoE: 4.5
