Senior Financial Analyst
I found myself in the job market after a layoff in March and have been diligently looking for new opportunities since. With a solid six-year background as a Senior Financial Analyst and Consultant, complemented by PMP and Scrum Master certifications, I bring a wealth of expertise to the table. However, the current job market is notably competitive. I’m curious if others are experiencing similar challenges in finding employment.

So I was laid off 2 months ago due to the company not doing great, now I’ve been interviewing and finally received a job offer. The dilemma is that there are a few other companies I’m in late stages with that have better comp/benefits/PTO/value alignment. Have you ever accepted an offer since you need the money and insurance and still continued interviewing? Ethically, I feel wrong, like I’m “cheating” if I accept and still entertain other roles. What would you do?

Great benefits and coworkers. Many aspects of the organization were trying to improve.
Lots of bureaucracy and controls make progress on objectives difficult. Still pockets of old ways of thinking.

Good benefits, decent pay plus pension opportunity
No promotional opportunities. Old school culture is resistant to change.

Exposure to different people and industries
Working at the El Paso Branch was horrible and full of microaggressions. The place was so hostile that the cleaners picked up dirty particles and left it on the table because they didn't want to clean up after "certain types" of people. Do not waste your time working at such a racist organization.1

good-competitive benefits, onsite gym, free employee parking, nice cafeteria with good variety of food
Very toxic management. Too concerned with meeting diversity quotas, and you had to either be black or Hispanic to be considered for promotions or retention. If you didn't fit their ideals or their norm, then you were never really accepted. You truly need to drink the Fed Kool-Aid and settle to survive there.1

Most people are kind and supportive Intellectual environment where you are constantly challenged to think Overall collaborative environment Good salary and benefits Generally good hours
Research department prioritizes citations over normal human behavior, which means economists with 20k+ citations get a green light to run over other economists and research analysts with no repercussions If you say anything, leadership ignores you or explains it away by qualifying unacceptable behavior as normal in the profession, leading to toxic environment (and attrition) in some groups. They do this because if they lose high citation individuals, it impacts the research ranking of the institution.
