how do you all make decisions on where to live? In terms of city….I know such a broad question… I’m struggling to find a new place to call home, don’t reply have any roots and could go anywhere. Most of my peers move to one place post grad due to job and only move due to job changes. With remote work I’ve moved out of HCOL and struggling to figure out how to find a home again….

Hi, I'm an HR Generalist and the HR contact for our local facility. My HR team is located out of state. I'm running into a problem with the local GM. He does his own thing, refuses to follow processes that I implement, and would rather talk to the head of my department instead of the Senior HR Manager and myself. When I ask clarifying questions, he gets defensive and states that I'm questioning him. Not sure how to deal with this situation.

What is the best way to think about equity as a part of TC? I originally thought to take a risk adjusted value at exit and peanut buttered that number across years btwn now and exit but after reading the actual equity grant paperwork it seems like the equity is more like a lottery ticket. The equity is worth basically nothing until company sells, you can be terminated for any reason any moment before sale, and you have no real recourse because you agree to arbitration and a non compete.
