Has anyone tried having their boss break down salary increases into components or a logic? My boutique firm gave me a total 10% increase in base over two years, calling it a “promotion bump”. When I inquired about inflation vs performance/responsibility, they said that’s the reason it’s 10%. In effect, ~3% effective increase over two years. Am I right to be a little frustrated?

Is everyone else having a problem finding beds for sick patients? I practice in the Midwest and our whole state is at capacity and then some. Have had patients in septic shock that took 2 days to get to a proper ICU. Had to keep a young guy with acute overt renal failure in need of dialysis for 3 days before we found him a place.
I think I am going to have a nervous breakdown sometime soon. My closest friends and collegues are getting laid off; I am safe for now but it seems am counting days. I was supposed to move to another country but stuck due to the pandemic. Living alone far from family and can't meet friends. And to too this all I can't help but feel saddled by this 'world sadness'.. the number of Covid deaths, the racial issues, the grim economic future. Anyone out there feeling like this? How are you coping?

I'm looking to pivot from consulting into tech. I've gotten lots of interesting from tech companies on the ops side but am much more interested in product management. Any advice on books or courses to help make the transition? I'm struggling to land PM interviews at companies that aren't tiny startups :(
Do you always negotiate salary after being offered a job, even if you don’t have a competing offer? Can you use inflation as a reason? Can you say x amount will make you really excited or do you have to back up what you’re asking for with reasons? Is it true that most companies expect you to negotiate?
One of my students has emotional/anger issues and he doesn't like one of his teachers. I allow him to come to room sometimes when he needs to in order to cool off. Is this enabling him?
Does anyone else work with a boss and co-workers that are international? Having a hard time with a new set up at work as I joined a team that mostly works out of a different country. I’m finding that the work I do has to be fixed a lot due to the time differences where in a normal situation they would not need to be redone (this is due to only having 2 hours a day to communicate). I’m just not sure that this is sustainable long term. Should I start looking for another job?
Gearing up to burn the rest of my paternity leave (11 weeks). SM on my project thinks that’s too long to take since there’s a lot of work in our pipeline and I should consider only using half of it...
