Currently, I am a clinical liaison at a large skilled nursing company in the Houston Medical Center. I have recently been offered multiple positions making more and working fewer hours . I have only worked with my previous company for roughly six months, but I feel I am underpaid. How much do people in this position make, and how do I go about asking for a raise? Is it too soon?
I have a team member who has a tendency to miss deadlines, is reluctant to take on tasks which they don't like or refuses to participate in company-wide mandates w/o me & the other team members validating the why's. Prior to joining my team, this behavior was alluded to but never told to me directly. Now I'm seeing it. I've discussed missed deadlines which are acknowledged but w/o permanent resolution. I'm going to give her a verbal warning in the upcoming review. Other suggestions?

I’ve 14 years experience (all the same firm) and worked across large scale migrations and divestments for European and global banks. I’ve recently transferred to the Middle East due to regional demand for my skill set and I’ve done a few post merger integration work but more on the tech and programme delivery side. I’d like to move on to another firm and work in a more business related integration work like IMO. I don’t want to do DD as it’s not my skill set. Any suggestion for role types/firms?
