How do you tow the fine line between sticking up for yourself and not talking back to a partner? For context, our firm has seemingly started making a paper trail for layoffs and I disagree with some of the emails that I have received. I want to respond in a way that covers my own ass. However, I don’t want to piss anyone off, especially if I have read the situation incorrectly.
Starting soon in Boston but the the WFH situation was still TBD when I interviewed. Are there any updates on when everyone would need to go back to office full time in the U.S.?

I left an agency job that I loved for “my dream job” in-house. It’s been a few months, but I’m really missing my old job. I feel silly for leaving it, esp because I’m realizing my “dream job” isn’t doing it for me, despite it paying much more than my old job. What do I do?
Some agents are not sincere, and some houses have a negative record (this is what we call the incidents inside the homes), but many agents do not say it. I know it is about ethics, but at the same time, it should be punishable because you are deceiving a person to take advantage of the situation; it is a scam.

Do mid tier firms pay more than B4?
I have a fear of commitment with everything in my life: accepting a job (if I have multiple offers), accepting a college, signing a lease somewhere, and starting a relationship. Once I get started, I know I’ll love it, but the decision kills me. In a relationship, I fear the point they will leave me (abruptly) & also fear I’ll never be able to love them the way they love me (if they come off strong in the beginning). Also want to explore my options, even if no one wants me. Anyone else??
Itching to post a real glassdoor review about an agency to balance out the gold star reviews the owner basically asked staff to consider. Because I feel like a reality check is needed. But the guilt

Moving from DC to NYC. Having a hard time believe the cost of living calculators as they are saying 80k in dc is equivalent to 120k in nyc. Is this accurate? Also I feel that’s incorrect because of the pretax benefits of having a higher salary. Interested in other insight

Good people will leave me/team and my true measure as a leader is how well people that I have mentored/helped do in my org and elsewhere. Really helps.
Everything’s about perception. Always act like you’re busy
Do not spin on things the client doesn’t care about. Speak up internally to reduce this if needed. Find out what they do care about and spend your time there.
Figure out who the generous managers are and seek them out to work with. You don’t want to get stuck working under a manager who is stingy in promoting people.
