Hilton points rack up fast and can be used at Waldorf Astoria hotels. Def not my first choice but not awful either.

I was at a client in downtown NYC, and saw some guys very visibly wearing Ferragamo belts. Why wouldn’t you just pair that with a big “Armani logo” round neck shirt too?

Just finished a Google Hangout with a recruiter. I appreciate she didn’t sugar coat anything, but she said that with COVID “everyone has time” now to have a “cool” personal project. (Cont’d)

Anyone else think companies have convinced us salary is a taboo topic only to help the top get away with unequal pay. base salary should be standardized and bonuses depend on performance (chargeable hours, project reviews, hours charged to internal codes).

Feeling blah. Got an offer and turned it down (I wouldn’t have taken), and told this other company that I got an offer, which resulted in the recruiter speeding up my 2nd interview. After the interview, they said that they’d need another interview and to speak to my refs before going forward, and that if I have an offer, they don’t want me to hold me back from taking it. Mind’s kind of in a jumble after this long process. Thoughts from my fellow fish?
