I would, if I had a partner, not by myself

BCG 🐠.. can anyone tell me the difference between “Associate Director” and “Partner & Associate Director” compensation? Expecting an offer soon but looking at glass door Associate Director may not cut it so may need to have a level conversation unless the band is very wide.. willing to walk away if AD doesn’t cut it as I have good prospects at my current firm but would be good to understand what I should ask for (more money @ AD or for them to consider a higher level)..

Hello! After 8 yrs in med devices, I left to start my own CPG company. I've been doing that for 3 years now but everything I've made has gone back into the business. For the past 6 months I've been trying to find a job because my husbands salary can't support the family and I've been struggling to find something. We have until the end of the month before we need to start making drastic changes so I'm reaching out for help. Does anyone know any open positions for product or project managers?

Have you ever contemplated leaving Big Law? But the money keeps you here...


Hi, everyone! I’ve been licensed since Feb 2020. My first job was with the State & I stayed there like 1.5 years before leaving (I gained many skills). I know my biggest mistake was leaving without having something lined up. So BASICALLY I’ve been unemployed since Jan 2021. I was employed by two firms but it didn’t work. I guess I didn’t meet their “expectations”—they expected me to learn everything within a week. ATP, I’m just getting VERY discouraged. Having interviews with no response etc.

I sublease an apartment from a friend who is currently in Jail unfortunately. I wasn’t in the lease and the apartment found out from my personal check which I paid for the rent.

They refused the rent and after the three day notification has passed they refused the cashier’s check here in Orange County.

The apartment has put him up for eviction and I feel bad about this cos it was cost savings. Is there anything I can do to save this?
