However, I'm going to have a stern conversation with my manager at our next 1-1, which may also be mid-year review time.

If I were to change jobs, I'd rather time it such that I can just be unemployed during the process of moving to CO and handle all that for AG, then find something after all of that is done.

The boss convo will be interesting. If she demurs, that tells me all I need to know about my future there. If I can wrangle a promotion and real raise, well, I'll take it and see if it works out. After all, the severance is based on final pay... if I take it and fail, all the better.

I say that, but of course failing sucks.

If you’re a key team member and your boss doesn’t go to bat for you she’s a ****** boss.

Well that’s my point. I’d then know all I need to about my future here.

I actually think my compensation is just right for the job I have.

I think the amount that I get “paid” from Medicare and insurance for my services is reasonable. The problem is, after paying staff and expenses etc. I get only about 40%. Sad.

The one thing I will say, as a manager of a group, is that we are often constrained in what we can do, and this we can end up in a situation were we want to promote somebody, but the higher ups won't agree, and you find yourself stuck - you've got somebody you think deserves more but you can't get it for them, and you can't tell them you tried, because that's kind of a dick move, trying to make yourself look good without actually helping them.

But, yeah. If the company won't pay you for the job you're doing.....

I do understand that. The reality is that my manager will likely not be able to get anything done even in the best case until the end of the year and effective in... March. And if that's the case, there's a very small chance I won't just be timing my notice.

It may not be her fault, but that also doesn't put an obligation on me.

Nice. Now I want an emonda.

Exactly. If the company can't or won't give managers the tools we need to retain important employees, those important employees won't stay.

But the brakes might rub, or the bottom bracket might creak....

Did you get your rotor rub fixed? What group do you have, anyway?

rotor rub is on the cervelo shimano 105

bottom bracket creak was on the madone sram force. Bottom bracket has been replaced. Rotor rub continues.

Worth it.

If you do, you'll have to really step it up. SLR bike, not bars. DA Di2. The whole shebang.

I’m overpaid by by most standards.

That’s great! I remember when she was feeling all snake-bit and shaky after that fall. Really happy to hear!

OK. The reason I asked is that my shop said they had a Madone with Rival that they can't keep from rubbing and it's got them totally baffled.

As for BB, my wife opted for a T47 ceramic bearing BB.

She does well but we both aren't as daring as we used to be. 70+ old bones break pretty easy.

We avoid a lot of sketchy roads that we used to ride without thinking anything about it. Luckily, both of us have pretty good balance yet.

This. Let me say up front that if your feet feel stepped upon, that is not my intention.
I have never understood the need to upgrade just because.

What does need have to do with it?

Well, the market sets the price. :innocent:

One’s only worth as much as one contributes.

Kind of like the Sram force.

If she’s ready to buy a fancy new bike she’s doing great. Balance is highly trainable and should not be a big problem for active people.

Yeah, the bones. I’m doing one solid day a week of weights with an emphasis on squats, deads, and other moves that load the hips and spine, and I’m trying for 150g of protein a day. I’ve put on a couple of lbs this year and would like 5. I also hope not to test the theory.

Since we are both on hormone therapy, we have to get bone scans. I check out OK so far but she has to get an annual treatment of Reclast.
