Just look at SNAP and Twitter. If they aren't poised for long-term productivity, I don't know what is.

Because tech companies are by and large interested in long-term productivity, consistency and investment, whereas banks are interested in short-term immediate profit.

Hi ladies, I need some advice on how to navigate/build a relationship with my fiance's family. Some of his siblings and family members are very standoffish and distant. For background, we are same race different culture. I'm very open and I've learned a lot from my fiance over the years. However, I believe his family still sees me as an outsider and they don't invite me to certain things. At times, it feels isolating and it makes me feel unwelcomed. They're also supposed to be in my wedding.

Can I just get this out? I’m 3 months into my first post-grad adult job and I’ve just received an offer for a much better position that’s in-house, a significant (like >10k) salary bump, and at a better agency. I realize now that I don’t like client services but I know how much my team is just managing to tread water. I kinda feel like 💩 but this is just one of those cliche “career-defining” offers that would be so stupid to pass up…
