My boss is not a true leader…
How do you handle your own boss who thinks you went behind their back to your own HR director? They tell you they don’t like it but you wanted another HR opinion on a topic and now they are upset about the entire situation.

Looking for advice! I was approved to work remotely but my salary will decrease 10%. I received two raises so the decrease brings me down to my previous salary. I was told that it’s due to the cost of labor in the area.
I’ve been with my company for 8+ yrs, I love my manager and the work I do (engagement, recognition, & wellness programs) but I feel like I’m limiting myself since I have the experience, an HRM degree, and SHRM-CP credentials.
Should I apply for roles outside the company?
A month ago I received my annual review/ merit increase, which was a little higher than the 3% for market adjustment. I’m still underpaid and not happy. I accepted the review at the time because I needed time to digest it. I still haven’t had a 1:1 with her yet but plan to ask when we do. Is it too late to ask? Any tips for asking for a raise? She’s also giving me more responsibility, more work, having me take more ownership over things her and someone else used to. Im so nervous about asking
GRAD SCHOOL ADVICE: Hi there, I am a HR professional and love my career. There are definitely some HARD days that make me question why I'm still in HR but I am passionate about people and helping them. That said, I have been thinking about going back to school for quite some time. I was interested in pursuing a MBA but now wanting to specialize in psychology. I think this is a better route for me. I want to understand people. Any HR/psychology grad students or alums? Online school suggestions?
I’ve been in TA for 10 years and have been wanting to be an HRBP for 2 years now. My prior company had no interest in helping me develop and started with a new company 4 months ago. I was transparent from the start that I wanted to leave TA and was told I could do that within my first year. I’m receiving signs that I’ll, once again, be pigeonholed in TA. I’ve done talent management, DEI, engagement, but my lack of direct BP experience and TA titles keep me pigeonholed. What can I do?

Need some help regarding sales quotas. Can management increase your quota solely because you’re doing well and exceeding it? I’ve been here less than a year, and have since established my capabilities with sales, and my numbers now put me in at number 3 highest selling sales rep of the entire company. My quota has now been changed 3 times since being here, with the latest increase being a jump of 2x what my previous quota was, just because I had a good month. Is this normal/fair?

I walked into work yesterday and noticed that all of the food was left on the table from Friday morning tea (I wasn’t at work) it’s so annoying to be expected that I will be the one that will clean up the office after every office event. I was pissed
I recently started a job as an outbound, enterprise BDR.
I have no previous experience with sales, but I did really well at first. In my first two months I was at the top of my sales team, and one of the top performers in the national sales org for dials/arr.

Does anyone use gympass for classes? I tried to use it for classes at Crunch but I don’t think classes are included? Can anyone let me know which gyms have classes included in the gympass deal, not just the gym?
So I had been working as medical interpreter up to the early part of this year. Today, during an interview, the Director with whom I was interviewing genuinely urged me to consider pursuing a career as a PA or even attempt to go to medical school. I had considered it in passing before but today was about the third or fourth time that someone had earnestly nudged me in that direction. Has anyone here made such a career pivot before? I love working in healthcare, there’s nothing like it.
My current big law firm gives guaranteed bonuses in December but what happens if, before they’re paid out, I lateral to another big law firm that conditions bonuses on billable hours (that I obviously won’t meet)? (I plan to work through referrals so I won’t get any perks from recruiters.)
