I’ve been an atty for 5 years at a small firm where I started their PI with exp. from the firm I clerked for. Outside of books and seminars, I have no guidance or mentor. Despite this I’ve been somewhat successful ($1-3 Mil/year) but I never stop working. Additionally, the $70K I’ve been paid for the last 3 years has me bitter and burning out. I asked for a raise but was turned down. I feel like less of an investment and more of a cash cow. Am I asking too much? Any advice?
Not really an investment question but more so money managing strategy of travel..
Planning to book flights via my chase reserve card. The flight booking itself does not have any refund policy after the first 24 hours. Question is if i book via my CSR card and have to cancel for whatever reasons will it be covered? I understand if there is an emergency then might be easier and i have read CSRs website on this. My concern is more so if the COVID cases or so increase and i decide not to fly

It’s February and I am still waiting for PWR to be confined by DOL. I have until Nov this year to file perm and obtain I-140 to retain my H1B status. It just doesn’t seem promising that it would happen before then. Very anxious and not in a good spot emotionally right now. Is anyone else in the same boat as I am? And what options do I have besides global deployment?
I’m convinced 70% of MBBs revenue comes from the healthcare & financial services sector, and less of the exciting TMT work the rest of industry is heading (ex FAANG). Can any of y’all say you have greater than 30% REV here? Feel most blue chip clients have ex-MBB Corp dev teams in house by now...

Hi all, first post here! I currently perform as a BDR for a SaaS company and am looking to transition to a new company. I’m on contract as a BDR essentially doing AE work (demos, discovery calls, full-sales cycle, etc.) and I am unfortunately feeling I’ve been too loyal for an onboarding that isn’t coming despite my performance being well. With that being said I am eager to grow in my sales career. Any advice, resources, or connections would be greatly appreciated as I seek new opportunity.
