Have an offer on the table at a startup that’s $35K more than current big 4 salary for a Senior Manager role. Benefits package is very comparable (401k match, healthcare costs, fringe stipends for WFH). Startup has been around for 5+ years and has secured a solid, 9 figures of investor dollars. Is it worth the move and having to leave my extremely secure “network” and role at a Big 4?

I have had an insane yr- looking like I’m going to beat billable goal by 400+ hours. I’m supposed to take the last two weeks of the year off but after looking @ my todo list I’m getting severely pessimistic about being able to meet the deadlines and actually taking the PTO. All of these are court deadlines and I’m not in a position to move them. Bc of the crazy year, pandemic, etc. I am running on fumes. How do I make it these last few weeks? How do you ever take real pto in this industry?

Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun. Now he has grown to have an interest in the technology and wants to pursue a career on Salesforce. But all job posting I see, always ask for BTech, MTech and such degrees to apply for openings. Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?
