You should go to discover and use that time to consider you next step on your career path. It is designed to help make better decisions.

You’ll get an email after promotion sometime in July. The first Discover session is in September

But think about the opportunity cost, fight now I'm making 66K whereas if I quit in July right after promotion, I'd be making 80-85K

You realize two months of the salary increase would only be 2-3k?

Lol yes I do.

Ok then

My dad was talking to my long term bf about setting life goals, and told him a story about a family friend whose wife had a large corporate job and her husband “was the stay at home mom” (said in a way that was clearly meant to be a dig at the husbands masculinity). My mom stayed home to raise me & my siblings, which ALLOWED my dad to work long hours/be successful. Anyone else face comments like this re: being female breadwinner/husband caring for children more than society expects?

I’m in my mid twenties and feel like work is my life. I think I’ll be satisfied with six figures for a while, which I’d be pretty close to after my raise in October anyways, and 40 hour work weeks.
