Im so sad. I just passed CPA exam and got the 1st job offer in public acct. I was so happy because I had hard time studying for CPA while.working full time. My parents understood how hard I tried,so today Im sharing the happiness with them that I got the 1st job at Big 4.My parents asked how much my salary is. I said :65k.They said"Why so low? I thought that with CPA you will earn a lot." So sad that they dont understand...

This might be the pettiest thing to be sad about, but as someone who recently moved to a FAANG with a chunky compensation bump, I've actually oftentimes felt poor because I'm now the most junior / least paid person in the house and everyone around me earns more. Has anyone else experienced these feelings?

Working Moms/Dads: Do in-house positions exist with flex time hours? I need to be able to leave work at 4pm to pick up my son from daycare, but i can get back online at home to resume any unfinished work at 8pm. Is this realistic to convey to any companies in an interview? Pandemic aside, is face time 9-7pm really important? Or should i just try to find a job with a salary that covers a nanny salary and accept that i will never see my son on weekdays (which would be sad for both of us)? TIA!

Ogilvy leadership talk alot about transparency. I would love them to put their words into action. Lauren should come out and confirm that she did not get a bonus (the sad truth of the matter is that despite layoffs, revenue and margin declines, it would not surprise me if she did). Sad state of affairs. Happy to stand corrected.

I accepted a new position that has a title bump and salary increase but am feeling weirdly sad about leaving KPMG.

Hoping I can find the same connections at my new firm.

I have a great salary but I’m drowning in bills. Between grad school loans and some dumb decisions between 19-23, I’m now 24 and feel like I’m house poor and living paycheck to paycheck. I can talk the talk but I feel like a fraud. I just started dating someone amazing and successful and it’s going so well, but I’m afraid he’s going to find out that I’m basically living like a broke student even though I make 80k. Should I be ashamed? I’m making effort to fix things but I feel so sad.

After 3 months of applying I some how got an interview with a well known growing tech start up! Interviewed and got an offer this week. Unfortunately the offer is lower than my current comp with 1 yoe but it gets me out of tech consulting/compliance and into a pretty interesting product facing role! A bit sad about a lower comp but also pretty pumped about pivoting career paths so early and getting to work in product! Hope this “success” helps motivate some of y’all who might feel down!

When I first met my husband, he made more than I did. Over the years, his salary has stayed about the same while mine has grown. Now, I work at a company that gives us stock compensation and am making more money than I ever thought possible. It would be great, but I think it is causing problems in my marriage. Has anyone faced an issue like this? My husband makes snide comments like how it’s my money, not ours. We’ve always been a “what’s yours is mine” kind of couple, so this is sad for me.
