  • I was so desperate to get out that Itook massive pay cut to leave a toxic work culture. At my new job I've been getting small raises each year. After moving to a leadership role I knew I was underpaid. I got a 6k raise and was satisfied until I found out that my peers were still making 13-15k more than me. I talked to the CEO who told me I was on par but to go to my manager if needed. I gathered a lot of data proving my case and got a 20k raise. It was scary but I'm so happy I did it.

  • I really HATE open workspaces - I have co-workers in other locations where they have the 'open workspace' floor plans and any time we have phone conferences people will just walk up and start talking to the person I'm calling and I have to figure out if the person is responding to my questions or to the questions of someone who has walked up and started talking to them.

  • My boss fired me when I told him I was pregnant. This was for a toystore company. We love kids. Not apparently my boss. So horrible to be pregnant and jobless. In Wisconsin if you have under 15 employees you can legally terminate employees for any reason :(

  • I had a miscarriage at work and am having a really hard time dealing with it...I made the mistake of telling a few close friends at work (not my manager) and I feel awful. I want to take a week off of work (I would treat it like a vacation) but I"m worried about seeming weak.
