Don’t compare yourself with others. You do what you enjoy 😊

That's almost explicitly the tradeoff of many professional jobs. You work longer hours in exchange for more money at some jobs vs others. There are sweet spots and bad spots; working min wage or entry level jobs can be low pay and long hours, and cushy jobs at FAANG can be high pay for short hours, but broadly, there is a tradeoff.

That comparison will never keep you happy! Stop scrolling other people's feeds! Instead get your slides done and go hangout or do something that cheers you up. Sometimes you just have to grow up and suck up to whatever is thrown your way.

It’s hard not to feel resentful at times like this. Kind of a shitty way to console yourself though :/. If those people start to outearn you then you’ll go back to being angry…

Kind of aggravated with the example male leadership is setting right now with regard to parenting at CV. At least 5 men in leadership have had new babies in the last month and it seems like some have taken no time off or only the bare minimum. We have 12 weeks and should be encouraged to use it! If leadership isn’t taking advantage of their own policy, what does that say to the rest of the staff? In my perspective, this is likely further contributing to the gender disparity in CV leadership

I’m curious of everyone’s views on job hopping. I’m on my 3rd job and have ~3 years of sales experience. Each job change has been an increase in comp and has shown clear career progression. At this point I’m working for a well known public company in SaaS, in their SMB segment, which has been great. But I’ve been approached by a smaller startup offering to double my base salary, 2.25x my OTE, and equity for an enterprise rep position. This is very enticing, but would I look like a job hopper?
