Am I the only one who thinks it's rude to send a coworker an email every several minutes, even if it is work related. Do emails have to be used as a chat function?

Have you been fired before even starting your new job?

I signed for a new job two months ago and will start next month (3 mo notice period in Europe). They were very keen on getting me on-board ASAP before signing but since I signed the contract it has been silent from the new employee. I've emailed them with questions as I'll be re-locating to NL and it takes them 1-2 weeks to reply. Given all that's going on in the world, I'm worried they might fire me before I even start.

need advice.

I have been working in an interim role as a portfolio manager. I was promised that the role would be mine. However, after doing the job for 2 months, I have been advised that we might not get the funding for the role and I might not get the raise and the title but my responsibilities will be the same.

Its a political minefield.

How should I back out elegantly that I need to be compensated fairly and competitively from this mess without burning any bridges

I told my partner I wanted to try role playing with a doctor's office fantasy, and then left the details to him. He made me schedule an appointment on an online portal, gave me a pile of paperwork to fill out when I arrived, invited some Craigslist actors to sit in the lobby during my appointment, and went so far as to put HGTV on all our TVs. Gotta love that attention to detail 😍

The next time someone says “the reason partners make so much is because they take on all the risk”, we can dispute them and use corona as an example. If partners took on all the risk staff would get paid in full before they got paid anything. The fact that staff salaries were reduced is proof staff are taking on risk too and should be compensated accordingly.
