Work less and make more is generally a good equation

Thank you D1

Depends on your role/team in a F500. Is your role profit-impacting or do you have ownership over a product? If you have those things, you’re probably fine. If the company has been growing a lot, that means leadership positions will continue to open up. If things are stagnant, you may have to jump ship to move up or wait until your boss leaves if there’s not enough of a separation in levels. In general, I avoid jobs now they report directly to someone at the Director level or above.

Probably a stupid question so I apologize for asking it in advance. I was having a discussion with a buddy about A&M and AlixPartners and this friend who works at AlixPartners sounded a bit arrogant about the fact that he chose AlixPartners over A&M. How does fish fam view those two companies? I feel they both are equally prestigious, have equally good exit opportunities, regularly poach each other’s employees and pay equally well. Thoughts ?

Anybody work at Amazon? Are their offers negotiable? My husband got an offer for a senior position in the VA office paying $120k plus $20k bonus plus 13 shares of stock that vest over 4 years. My husband has ~6 years of experience (2 yrs midsize PA plus various industry roles) so the senior title is low but have heard you have to take a step down in title to work at Fortune 25 companies.

Maybe a strange take but I think that we should be more in touch with our internal bodies. We can send astronauts to the moon and rovers to mars but there’s no easy, portable way to scan our bodies to see what’s going on inside (e.g., a DIY full body xray or MRI). I think this could be the next gen of weighing scales that also show various health metrics, track fitness, etc. It could help with prevention and diagnosis. I guess it’s bad for health providers who make $ today from this. Thoughts?
