New EM and just learned a great lesson about how even if my team’s and my work is 100% right, but leadership doesn’t feel in touch with it or clued in on development, it won’t get too far.
👩👧 Anyone lost their mother when they were young? I’m in my mid 30s, and the older I get, the harder it feels (counter intuitively) ➡️

The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired.

Do you tell your family , close friends that you see a therapist or keep it to yourself ? It’s not seen as a good thing in our culture and country so I’d rather not let them know about this

I may be paranoid - I have been having a runny, congested nose, with occasional sneezing. It got worse this evening. No other symptoms. I just saw midwife today and didn’t think much of it until this evening when it felt worse. They took my temperature there-no fever. Anyone have pregnancy rhinitis?

Looking for input on a career decision. Me: 9 YOE, homegrown manager who is currently doing a stop in industry. I have an offer to return to consulting (M&A). My end game is pure strategy. Do I take the offer or wait for the opportunity to interview for pure strategy? My take is it’s more difficult to lateral the more senior you are in your career.
I wonder why D thinks that well being means scheduling a lot more zoom calls to tell us how much they care about well being but on ground everyone is still burnt out since we have such crazy targets. Thoughts ?
I started with my bar prep company in March and have been working remotely since. I don’t feel like I was ever properly trained (can’t tell if that’s because of poor management or WFH or both) but I have a hard time with the contract management system and have made several mistakes. Of course, I wasn’t trained in the CMS and am only taught how to do something correctly after I’ve don’t it incorrectly. Any advice on keeping things in perspective? I feel like I’m underperforming but only with tech

Just signed my offer for a Product Manager role and ~100% bump in TC. After four years of being undervalued at Deloitte and two years of making it to final round interviews with no offers, it finally feels like it was all worth it. Hope all of you who are still searching get to experience this someday, and sooner rather than later. It can be done!
Got an informal offer to join a client (manufacturing company). 240k base, 60k cash bonus target (can shrink or double depending on company metrics) + 50k annual equity (3 yr rolling vesting). Director level which has just one additional layer between me and the Exec Committee. My contact already internal negotiated extra vacation and is working on my behalf for a signing bonus. Is it worth trying to negotiate base? Or is this already a strong offer?
