Life at work can be funny, challenging, ridiculous, and -- yes, even satisfying. Here at Safe For Work, we're all about helping you find balance and happiness in your career. After all, many of us spend more time with our co-workers and clients than with our friends and family. Hosts Liz Dolan and Rico Gagliano give advice on everything from how to avoid burnout on the job to how to fake an illness when you're calling in sick. We also talk to experts about those moments at the office that can challenge the best of us: negotiating raises, knowing when it’s time to move on...or dealing with that annoying office mate with no boundaries. From Wondery, the network behind Business Wars, Safe For Work is helpful career advice that's lively and fun, just like your work life should be. In every episode, Liz and Rico talks with callers, business leaders and noted know-it-alls who share their hard-earned wisdom from the trenches. Liz Dolan is the former head of marketing at Nike, The Oprah Winfrey Network and National Geographic and host of the podcast Satellite Sisters. Rico Gagliano is a contributor to The Wall Street Journal, former host of podcast Dinner Party Download, reporter on the public radio show Marketplace, and co-author of BRUNCH IS HELL.
Karen Wickre, former Google executive and editorial director at Twitter, joins us to explain how social media has made networking way easier, particularly for introverts. Then, Liz and Rico help Ryan, who wants to know if she should put her entry-level job on her business cards, and Emma, whose VP is not being particularly understanding while Emma’s trying to care for her ailing grandmother. And we tackle some all-too-common Bad Advice, like, “Don’t leave before the boss leaves.”

Don’t forget! We’re working on a bunch of special episodes (Liz & Rico AMAs, your ultimate office, and a very NOT Safe For Work episode), so if you have a question, don't hesitate to send us an email. You can reach us at Safe@Wondery.com, or you can leave us a voicemail at 424-224-5711. You can also find us on Twitter — we’re @SafeFor Work — and don't forget to follow our sage hosts on Twitter, too; they're @SSLiz and @RicoGagliano.
