Received an offer at a pre-IPO company going through hypergrowth that I intend on accepting. The offer is a ~40% raise that exceeded my annual target salary range by 2.5k (company would not disclose budget for the role so I had to provide one) and I’m genuinely happy with the offer, but feels like a mistake not to negotiate.
What other levers can I pull? I’m thinking sign-on bonus/relocation and asking for more stocks options. Benefits are otherwise pretty comprehensive (including visa).
What salary (base, bonus,etc.) can I expect at RBC for the postion Senior Java Spring boot developer?
I mentioned that I was a bit nervous for the interview/didn’t know what exactly to expect in my HBS reflection and I’m worried that was bad to include. I don’t want them to think I wasn’t prepared. Also can’t tell how important the reflections are.

I had the skill round (1st round of interview) today but only one of the panelists turned up as the senior manager was busy today as well. Now they are saying they will keep a separate session for the second panelist and this is what I see on the career portal, on logging in. Why can’t they find time to take interviews as per the committed time :/ How much time do they typically take after 1st round, to share an update?
I was going to buy a condo this year and I just found one in a pretty good neighborhood. I do feel it is being sold at a premium but I can afford the property and locked down a 5.5% interest rate after a buy down costing 4K. Should I hold off on buying a place. The monthly payment is higher than I would have wanted but I feel like buying is better than renting because you are investing in yourself.I had saved up 40k and it’s in my account for buying. If I don’t buy what should I do?
I feel continuously lonely, how to shake off this chronic loneliness?

Late night thoughts:
When I was a small kid, I used to think homeless people could climb under the drain of my shower, and they would use my shower water to clean themselves, so I sometimes slipped some leftover bar soap down the drain.
Idk how that idea got into my head as a kid, but for some reason it did.
That’s all, thanks :)

Hey folks, I’m about a year into my new SE career and looking to continue to invest in professional skills.

I recently had an interview with a very promising pre-IPO company in the AI/ML space for a SE leadership position. The interview feedback was better than I expected, but with a twist. They have already given the offer to someone else, but they still want to bring me on board and they asked me what I would like to do. I am in the process of gathering more info, but it is tempting to ask about pivoting into product management. What would you do in this situation?
