If you’ve ever had to do a doc review exercise with time pressure, did you get paid overtime or were you just expected to do extra hours?
My firm keeps putting pressure on us to do more hours but giving nothing in exchange! (No overtime pay nor extra time off).
How should I bring up that I’d be happy to do overtime hours only if they pay?
So, thoughts? I’m not feeling particularly charitable right now.
What brands or in-house creative teams use humor or a comedic voice in their advertising? The first ones that come to mind are Geico and Snickers but I think their work is done by agencies.

Evaluating an exit into Amazon as L6 product manager (TC: $225K) after 1 year at BCG. I want to work in tech/fintech long term. Questions:
1) Is the work life balance better at Amazon, than BCG? Currently I'm averaging 70 hours a week. More than that, the pace is quite insane. Deliverables every couple of hours.
2) Is the level of mentorship/coaching better at Amazon?
3) Is the offer reasonable? Their upper max is 250k and I'm currently at 240, should I try to atleast get my current TC?
Is there a maximum to how many shop your way points you can get through Uber in a given year?
Just curious about, is there really any impact on your career if you switch a company within a year, not for money but for good work and WLB.
Are the hiring managers going to weigh it while hiring you in future?
Like HM would reject just because you switched that early before, even if you skills are good fit?
Just hearing a lot of noise around it and want to hear from professionals here.
This probably proves that we’ve been seen so continue putting it out there.
I want to pivot to Big4 and have 16+ yrs experience in various verticals in Customer Sevices in Telecom domain and now at an Ed Tech Startup. Any guidance will help.

My coworker brought a puppy to work, who bit my hand. I ended up losing my temper and yelling at them. Now everyone is mad at me for blowing up at work, even though this is something I shouldn't have had to deal with in the first place!

I've been working remotely for a year now, and I'm still not sure how to deal with it. My family is all in one place, so I don't see them as much anymore. My friends are scattered all over the country, so it's hard to meet up with them outside of work events or conferences. And my coworkers? Well… let's just say that they don't understand why I'm not sitting in an office with them every day.

When I ask my manager for advice about how to do something, he usually just tells me I'll "figure it out yourself." But when it comes down to it, he doesn't help me at all by doing that—he just makes me feel like an idiot. And then when I do figure it out myself and bring the answer back to him, he won't even look at it! He'll just say something like "Oh yeah, thank you," and give me another assignment.
