What are people’s thoughts on exiting for industry/startup next year vs now? Anyone else worried that the economy will tank and they will have to grind it out for a few more years?

Worry only about stuff you can actually control. Companies still hire folks in a recession, doubt it be a problem if you have the right skills and are a good fit. Also, they can hire you now and fire

Economy in general may contract a few percentage points but it won’t be the end of the world. What worries me is a meltdown in tech. Unprofitable companies keep getting funded. VCs raise so much money that they have to place it somewhere. They also compete with each other valuations go up...

In summary, the music will stop at some point

Need advice. I’m in industry now and report to Controller who reports to CFO. I found out my raise is 2.75% and brought it up to my boss and he said “that’s what everyone is getting as raises are based on market, not inflation, and your salary is within market range”. I have a skip level meeting with the CFO tomorrow and want to mention it’s the smallest raise I’ve ever gotten or some other comment to bring it to his attention. How do I phrase that in a professional manner?

Is it smart to be in medicine these days (MD/DO)? I’ve been sold my whole life that it would offer job security, prestige, great pay, and flexibility. But hearing from so many who’ve exited practice and seeing how mid-levels are taking over the system (on top of the system being profit motivated), I’m wondering if it’s worth the sacrifice (time, money, energy) that I could put elsewhere. I do enjoy helping people 1v1, and im unsure where’d I’d get that in business
