80k / F / 6 yrs experience

Signed offer and asked to renegotiate after 6 months and coming close to the 6 months, planning on 90, is that fair?

I’m probably the worst at negotiating. A living stereotype, afraid to push. Any tips? Def. Small independent shop, so no deep network pockets but still think I owe it to myself to earn what I deserve.


90k is low end of senior strategist depending on the size of the agency


Seems very low.


What city?


I'm at 80k in Chicago as a newly-promoted Senior with 4 years of experience. I think I'm on the low end, so with your two extra years I'd say you must be.



It’s “go out and get a counteroffer” time. Seriously, if only for the practice and networking, there is only upside for you.

OP There's lots of negotiation tips online but what will really change you is the day when you find out that someone way less competant than you (usually some white dude who knows how to blow hot air) is making extortianately more than you. You'll never be afraid to ask again.

Hi team i have a bit of doubt.
I have an excel sheet where column A is the order numbers. I want to add comments in column G.
There are many repetitions in order numbers but they are all sorted in ascending so all the repetitions are below one another.

If i have a comment, how can i automatically paste that same comment in all the repetitions of that order numbers if i write it in the 1st instance.

Thanks in advance

I recently got an offer at PWC making SIGNIFICANTLY more than what I currently make. I also have been interviewing at GT and the recruiter said they are working on an official offer there. Both roles have pros and cons, and I would want to see what GT offers before making a decision, but I feel as if GT will not be able to match what PWC is offering and for me. Is there ever a time when a company just straight up can’t match what competitors are offering?
