Yeah, every week I wonder why I work so much more than peers when exit opportunities are not that much better than having gone to industry directly without having to work 65h/w. It was a very good learning experience on US culture (foreigner here).

Would my MS and experience suffice, or do I really need the EMBA for advancement?

They do not want to drive online conversions on their website. We will have some sponsored product advertising (ex. Instacart) later on. What am I missing??

When you’re on point to lead a call, and your manager is on the call, is it normal for them to constantly “add points”/interrupt you every minute? I’ve had a couple managers and noticed that every one of them that did this, didn’t add any value beyond what I was saying most of the time. On the contrary, when I had SMs or MDs on the call, they never interrupted.

There's a lot of backstory to this but I can only type so much SO I've been with my company for 10.5 hours and just found out they've increased their base pay for starting employees $3-5/hr. I have received my annual 3-4% raises, only because I always make sure to ask for it, but nothing more. They didn't even acknowledge my 10 year anniversary with the company and it's a pretty small company (less than 100 employees). I feel I should get a $3-5/hr raise since the base pay was raised. Thoughts?
