Anyone else open to discussing salaries? I was the only associate in my small Texas firm (3 attorneys including me) and paid $40,000. Promise of bonus, but no show. I felt like that was way too low.

I recently moved to a new company. As I get access to all the systems, I noticed that I have access to HR function (peers, managers) data within the HRIS system and other sources. I am not planning to look at the data but I'm concerned that peers can see my compensation, etc., if I can see theirs. At the company I came from, HR data was extremely safeguarded and restrictive within our systems. Is this something I should bring up to my manager?

Does anyone have creative ways that they are capitalizing on outside sales perks such as: mileage, hotel points, credit card points, etc.? So far my solutions are high mpg vehicle to maximize profit on the 57 cent per mile standard and the American Express Hilton Honors credit card to gain points after the company reimbursement.

I’m getting more compelling recruiter emails now that companies aren’t as tied to markets, and are more open to permanently-remote employees. For these types of opportunities, how do you approach salary talks? Do you base it on where you live, or where the office is that you’re talking to? For context, the agency I’m interviewing with only has an office in NYC and I’m in Chicago, and have no interest in relocating.
