Ex military to gov tend to keep their management style. Strict and stern Ex military to consulting develop more soft skills and dont use the same techniques. My 2 cents 🤗

D1 - former military are almost uniformly professional (pun!). It’s the angry unprofessional civilians that will get you. That said, it certainly varies - entire pockets of toxicity to my current client, who is generally lovely.

They are tired of consultants who don’t know their work as well as them getting paid factors more in salary to say the same things they’ve been saying for years? Former govt employee here.

Первый смартфон Mi1 был анонсирован в августе 2011 года. Он поставлялся со встроенной прошивкой MIUI, основанной на Android, совмещающей фирменные стили Samsung TouchWiz и Apple iOS. Также существовала версия устройства с чистым Android. В августе 2012 года Xiaomi анонсировала смартфон Mi2.

This is probably considered dumb to most but I’m interviewing for my first role where RSUs/equity may be offered. Aside from googling the very basics, I know they vest after 4 years w the first year being the “cliff” - can anyone tell me how to negotiate for higher equity? And also… I keep hearing about “refreshers” — any insight there? Is this how frequently the company would provide more ?

Dads with older children: while raising your children, did your children prefer their moms over you? I know some will prefer dads over moms, but I assume majority of children out there will prefer their moms over dads… I have one child and it kinda hurts to see my child always preferring the mom over me. I know I shouldn’t feel this way, but I just do. How did you cope with such issue raising your children?
