How do you present a competing offer to your manager? Intangibles at work are great, but I know I’m not being compensated per my value, and I lost out on a promotion last month due to budget (right before they flew out 5k employees to NYC). My manager agrees, said my best bet was to get a competing offer. Now that I have one, how do I broach the convo? I want to be transparent that I don’t want to leave and won’t if they present a counter - is that best practice? Don’t want to burn bridges. Salesforce

Spill the tea, Deloitte Digital peeps - what’s the word on Andy Main? So many of us are disappointed that WPP did not hire a woman or BIPOC for Ogilvy’s global CEO role so I’m hoping to hear some good stuff about him to salve the wound.
I’m in a bos/nyc LDR with my bf of 1.5 years. Covid has made things difficult as he’s extremely cautious about travel and is much more ok with virtual hangouts than I am. He’s also thriving during quarantine with new hobbies/free time while I’ve been struggling missing him and feeling like a downer. We both have flexible WFH jobs, but feel it’s too soon to move-in together. I’m really struggling with toughing it out given there’s no end in sight. Any tips for finding clarity?

I strongly embrace feminist ideology, but struggle with the idea that men are not supposed to objectify women, yet a large population of girls/women are monetizing the objectification of their bodies by men. Any conventionally attractive girl can make close to 6 figures just from posting nudes on onlyfans for men to buy. So the very thing men are told not to do is the same very thing that a large population of women exploit to make tons of money from. Help me reconcile these contradicting view?
Any other people here who do Weight Watchers/WW? If so, any thoughts on the new points system rolled out today? Seems too good to be true, not sure I’m on board! WW has helped me so much, I don’t know if I want to change!
Make about $105k right now and am anticipating a bit of a bump next year, whether or not I get a larger promotion. Also have about $40k of savings outside of investments/401k.
