I've been in an interview process with a certain company and for the 2nd time they have had to reschedule my interview but today was not ok since they waited until last minute to say they had 'connections issues', i feel a little disrespected for my time, would you guys continue to interview if this happens to you?

I’m curious how much the other engineers are getting paid in our company. Is there a way to ask them about this without sounding inappropriate? For context, I’ve been here for a couple months now and have good rapport with my coworkers.

I have some interviews for product management roles at some Series C/D companies. I have a feeling I'll get at least one offer. Totally new to the start up game but given that these are both well onto the road to IPO (according to them) can I have them give me a breakdown of equity, strike price, outstanding shares etc? One is a PMM role too. 31, female in Boston if location maters at all when considering any of the above.

My MIL, who comes over during the week to watch my 7 month old, called this morning to say that they were informed they may have been exposed. My FIL was running a fever during the night. Obviously, she is not here today but now I’m freaking out that we were all exposed since she’s been here this week. 😔 My daughter is high risk and I’m just worried.
