Would you go work for a private company that offers a lot of growth opportunities, high salary and 40-45 hour work weeks, but doesn’t allow WFH and is pretty strict on the 8-5?

Personally. No, unless the commute was less than 20 minutes.

depends - am I doing 8-5 or are they?

Depends on your priorities, I personally have professional growth and salary progressions at the top of my list so I would probably take that. But if you value WLB more, then it’s probably not a good fit.

Noooooope. Not interested in out-performing and jumping through hoops for a bunch of stuffy, close-minded sticks in the mud; not beyond tolerating for a very short term. If regimented is your thing, sounds like a great place. But you better make sure that separation between on and off the clock goes both ways if they’re gonna be that strict. If the hours are 8-5, I better not get any calls at 6. If wfh is not permitted for the workweek, I ain’t once taking that shit home with me on the weekend.

Definitely - WFH isn’t a huge priority for me

What is the salary for technical specialist in mind tree YOE 3.2

Just told my fairly new bf how much I make and he makes 3 times of how much I’m making right now. I had a big career setback because of covid and my salary hasn’t increased for a while. He cares about money and being rich so much I feel like he might dump me at some point. I won’t be upset if he does because that’s on him, but I feel so insecure about how ridiculously poorly I’m doing in life:(. Just wanted to let it out
