Have seen comp for NACR (restructuring) listed at around 150-200 for analysts, 200-275 for associates, and one mention of senior associates at 375k. Supposedly NACR gets crushed in terms of hours. But i've also read that targets are around 2000 hours per year? Something doesn't add up.....e.g. Associate $550/hr * 25% cap rate * 2000 billable hrs = $275k.......but 2000 hours is slightly over 40 hours a week (including 4 weeks vacay), not the 80 hr/week. So is there a ton of time on vacation?

I have been in sales even before college. I'm reaching a burn out. I feel like the expectations get higher the more work I put in and that ends with me putting on many hats to get done. I can't catch a break, let alone allowed a decent vacation without having to negotiate based on performance. I honestly don't want to be in sales forever. I'm versatile when it comes to any tasks due to the nature of wearing many hats. Any suggestions?

Just got dumped after 6 months. We had a serious connection so I thought, said we loved each other, talked about future, looked like I was everything he said he wanted. But he thought I was out of his league, more established, there was an age difference, I have older kids, he has one young child. I lurked on his IG and he is on vacation with someone else 😂🥺 I’m HEARTBROKEN. How tf do I recover?!?

Seeking advice on a moral/financial dilemma. I went to a concert with 10 friends. We all tried to get tickets when it came out, I got lucky and purchased the tickets for everyone as well as 3 extras as one of our friends wanted to invite more people. Well those 3 people bailed, and we were unable to resell the tickets. The event’s over but I’m out $150. It’s not a significant amount but not immaterial amount either. (See comment for details)

I'm conflicted and I honestly feel defeated. I started this job at a good foot, I negotiated the salary I wanted, which was of the higher tier. I killed it by being in the top 6 performers of my sales class. A year into the job, I get my first promotion by hitting my numbers. Felt proud of myself for a moment. Then I get an email saying I'll still get the promotion. But due to my higher starting salary (5k over the average) I won't get the pay raise of 3k. Is this right? "Here's your pizza!"
