In my early thirties, still an Engagement Manager only making $355k basic, plus benefits and guarenteed minimum bonus of $100k. What did I do wrong? #Satire #DoesAnyoneElseFeelThisTypeOfDiscussionHappensWayToMuchHere? #WhyDoSoManyPeepsNeedValidation? Not trying to put people down, but seems there are far too many people on the hamster wheel just churning and in need of validation. Any thoughts? Am I off base?

I was curious - does it make sense to set up a nursery if we would plan on having the baby in our room from the time they are born until they turn a year? I did set up a nursery for my daughter but knowing we are moving - I know I’m jumping the gun here. I’m just trying to process all the big changes and it’s probably just me overthinking. My office is the one that will have to be changed to a nursery

Been at my current B4 firm for less than a year , got an offer from my former manager to join him at his firm (online bank) to work on cloud security. The base jump is only 15% but the wlb is much better and the benefits are as good. The work I will be doing with the old manager is exactly what I did before with him and I was good at it. Should I take it? Current base - 130k + 5-15% bonus (promotion in a year to half to manager) Potential Offer - 155k + 10% bonus Yoe- 6 in NYC metro
