Took a job with a 60% increase… and I dont like it.

Bet you like that extra 60% TC much more than your minor net displeasure of this job compared to your last one though…


Think this as your stepping stone for the next bump. Start looking for your next jump. I am sure you can ask for another raise if not 60%. Good luck


This 1000%. Stick with it for at least 6 months, ideally a year if you can. It sucks, but you can't always anticipate these things. I'm in a very similar position, but I also work with others outside my department on little side projects and that helps to keep me feeling more fulfilled.

Bruh.. 60% increase? Learn to be self-entertaining. Pick up a hobby, ramp up your skills in other areas for that next jump.. also invest that 60%. Sometimes you just have to find “something” to like about the job. Doesn’t have to be all of it.


Lol, exactly. 60% is life changing unless you just don’t really need to work.


MY BIGGEST FEAR. Im assuming you went from consulting to industry, so as long as you aren’t working those good good 70 hours, isn’t it still a bit better?


What don’t you like about it? How long have you been in the role?


Omg contemplating the move too...but to the b4. Interested to hear more!

From where?

I feel like my kids 1st grade teacher is being too strict, but I'm not sure if this is normal or I'm being sensitive because it's my child. E.g. she gave him 2/10 for his math homework because he doodled on the page, colored in the circle that has the page number, didn't draw the word problem neatly, wrote his last name under the name line, and says some of his numbers aren't legible. All his answers were correct, except one where he forgot to fill in the blank. Is this normal? X-posting
