I need to vent about something tangentially related to covid, and this seems like a good place to do it.

Right now, my wife’s grandfather, a wonderful human being who is in otherwise fantastic shape, is having severe heart issues. He is working to find a hospital that can admit him for what would otherwise be somewhat routine heart surgery, but unfortunately there are no hospitals with open beds within 50 miles of where he lives. All of the local hospitals are packed with COVID patients...

Advice? Lost my direction after getting my T20+ MBA

Currently SA level, making 140k base + 35k bonus @ B4 M&A (ODD & PMI work, not liking it, love strategy, CDD and $$$$ more)

I’ve seen colleagues going different directions: 1. jumping around in T2/B4/Alix/A&M/MBB, 2. leaving for S&O roles at a F500, 3. exiting to PE Ops/PortCo roles.

I’m sorry fishes, but with depleted savings, $$$ is my goal, WLB/passion comes second/third. Any advice to MAX my earnings?


Hello fishes, I’ll be negotiating a comp with American Express for a band30 product manager REMOTE role.

I would appreciate if current AMEX PMs can comment on a good number for base pay, sign-on, yearly bonus, stocks and other negotiable benefits

PM experience: <1 yr
Non PM experience (technical): ~3 yr

Thank you all 🙏🏽


Hi Fishes,

i am getting promoted soon, i have heard that while promoting 20% hike is given. Does this 20% will also include my yearly appraisal salary hike? Or promotion hike and yearly appraisal hike will be separate? Actually first time in my life I'm getting promoted in same organisation.


Hi Fishes,

Need your honest opinions, I have offers from India (InMobi) and Luxoft, Poland.
India offer is 10% more as compared to Poland one in terms of CTC, India offer has handsome joining bonus and stocks as well
My aspiration is to work in abroad & travel , but not feeling comfortable to go with a lower salary there
I am a Cloud & DevOps Professional with 7.5 YOE
If I miss this Poland opportunity now, do you think I will have possibilities of getting onsite jobs in future at this level?
