Will ask my manager for a grad school recommendation letter? What should I say so he can write a strong recommendation?

^agreed. If he agrees, share with him a copy of your resume and grad school personal statement essay. Ask for the letter to assess your intellectual and emotional intelligence; examples of your leadership capacity/attributes; your ability to assimilate and apply the learned concepts to your role and growth. Also attestations of your professionalism and emotional maturity are important. Good luck


Offer to write it for him... he will appreciate it, I promise!


First and foremost, ask if he is willing/would want to write a review. That way, if he doesn’t like you, you won’t waste it

If you have a baby on a high deductible health plan (5k deductible per member), does the baby's deductible have to be paid during birth? I.e. can I expect to pay 10k, 5k for mom and 5k for baby? Or is the baby covered under moms deductible?


Might be weird but I really have to ask. Anybody here experience dry mouth as a result of Adderall that leads to bad breath? I have very good dental hygiene and I regularly visit my dentist. But Adderall always gives me bad breath nonetheless. No issues with bad breath at all on days that I don’t take Adderall.


I was recently promoted to staff engineer at my company. My role is more strategic and I don’t work in code bases. If I were to change companies I’d likely be most qualified for technical program management. Initially with my promotion TC went from 165k to 185k, then after a slew of resignations the company recalibrated pay and bumped me to 296k TC. This is a big increase, but with the market the way it is I wanted to see what others in the industry think about how competitive it is.

What is your why ? PE / Growth / HF jobs are super hard, demanding, stressful, long hours. Yes they make a ton of money (say probably $500k-$1mm per year in your 30s if reasonably successful) - but that’s probably more than what’s reasonably required to live well ? Am in the middle of interview process for quite a big job, and wondering what drives me… I’m competitive but beyond that I don’t see much.
