Curious what other international sales engineers make? Been with my company 8 years (it was my first “big kid job” and I’ve put-survived my last 3 bosses to firing/quitting. I’ve also inherited all their sales duties and went from a sales team of 2 to 4 to 3 and now just me! I make $75K plus $25K at target. Target was set when there was myself & two managers. I’ve hit target against all odds.

Advice please! 2 kids - 2.5 and 6mo and last week was my first week back from mat leave. My toddler is throwing all sorts of tantrums now, which she never did before, demanding our attention. Doesn’t help that we had to switch nannies at the same time as me going back to work (she had her previous nanny since she was a baby). Please tell me it gets better soon?
My boyfriend wants kids. The only kids I want are the ones with fur and 4 legs. He loves them because he has nieces and nephews, but he doesn’t even wake up when our senior cat cries at night or throws up on the floor. I’m the one that hears it. Doesn’t make me feel hopeful that he’ll wake up when he hears a baby cry at night. He sleeps like a log.

Hi moms! I’ve been wanting to leave my company for about two years now but held on for my recent promo. Now my partner and I would like to get pregnant stat. I realize that is not guaranteed to happen on the first or even 10th try. Should I continue to look for a new job and try conceiving at the same time? Mat leave is important to me- I want to make sure I’m protected and have pay. Anyone been here before? What did you do? Anyone find a new job while pregnant and negotiate mat coverage?
I can’t close my eyes, when I do, I see that young black man on the grown with someone seating on his neck. I am raising a black kid and this keeps me up at night. I am so heartbroken.
I’ve been back from Mat Lave for 6 months and recently sat down to meet with my new Supervisor to discuss future opportunities for advancement and express that I’m hoping to have a salary review soon.
He told me he agreed I was undervalued when reviewing my comp and mentioned a few times now that my maternity leave was a factor in me being underpaid - what do I do I feel heartbroken and discouraged? I feel so stuck - I love my work but how can I feel ok every day knowing this?
Are there any provisions that help in elderly persons climbing the stairs. Have an elderly parent with acute arthritis and unable to find good houses with a bedroom downstairs.

How do you practice mindful eating in a job (e.g. consulting) that has a culture of centering so much business and socialization around food & drinks? I struggle to actually eat a meal to satiation unless it’s with someone I’m super super comfortable with… in most business situations involving conversation I just can’t do both at the same time and walk away from the meal feeling just unsatisfied

Best restaurant in Manhattan for parents to meet boyfriend? Mainly looking for somewhere quiet and spacious (so we aren’t sitting on top of the people next to us). Can be a nice place, just nothing crazy $$$$
I see a lot of posts from people who are being put forward for interviews and comment on this forum about having concerns about whether what they are looking for will be achievable. My view is that salary should be discussed upfront and before 1st interview and expectations set so that the client and the candidate understand in advance each others expectations and that both can be met. I’m interested if their are thoughts on why you wouldn’t nail this down in advance.It guarantees no wasted time
