Many Officers coming out of the military have an expectation (especially academy grads) of making $120k+ first year out... would you say this is unrealistic?
I am done with all my rounds at S&P Global and shared my documents to HR. No one has asked about my expected salary yet. Is this usual in their process. How much can I ask for an experience of 9 years. How many days does it take to release the offer and what is the slary structure.
What is the percentage salary increase you were given at your agency for a performance based promotion?
Is there an industry trend that I missed that companies are giving either very small salary increases or none at all?!
I am at CON level joined last year in Aug with 9.5 as fixed YOE 3.5. Now total YOE is 4.3. Hike is 16%, Variable bonus 13.5%.

Got a call from Indeed for the role of Sr. UX designer. What is the interview process like? How is the work culture, compensation structure, etc?

I have an offer from Mayer Brown as a senior associate and they have told me that a guaranteed full EOY bonus is not standard or a market ask. My offer is in a non-NY office and the posting for this position has been up for six months.
Any recent laterals out there who moved in the last few months who received a guaranteed full EOY bonus and/or signing bonus for a corporate senior associate role?
Where’s a good place to get salary information or billable rates for the NYC area? I’m hearing of people getting 200k plus or $150-250 an hour for tech work, but I’ve never been able to get more than 145 or $100 an hour. I have 20 years experience, impressive (but not FAANG companies) on my resume, tons of LI connections and written recommendations, and a BS in CS.
I am holding multiple offers with different roles and different locations.
Please help me make a right choice in terms of Work life balance, growth and learning.
My Preferred location is Hyderabad.

What's better long term: Corporate Finance or Program Management? Think long term opportunities, potential exit ops, compensation, etc. Curious to hear thoughts - I'm in a weird spot where both are extremely attractive and split between the two.
During a convo with a recruiter I was asked the salary range I’m interested in and then she revealed my salary expectations are actually lower than the job (however the recruiter didn’t say by how much). Did I shoot myself in the foot? IF I get an offer do I still have room to negotiate even though they know I was expecting less?
Any manager moved from consulting firm to Capital One? If so, what's the asking salary range you gave them during your job application process?
What's y'all experience with salary bumps and internal moves? Is there some % rule? Is it normal for internal recruiter to ask me what I'm currently at? Even though I shared my desired range?
Besides feeling kinda insulted & not treated like any other external candidate I don't feel ok w/ the info to be shared further with the new team. Isn't this that kind of personal data that should be confidential? Even for the internal move?
Struggling to understand this. No wonder ppl job hop so much

H1B visa stamped.
While applying for visa my company quoted 80K as compensation. Now they want to reduce it to 75K.
This feels like unfair practice. Is it common? What should be my approach?

My company is transitioning from wfh back to the office, but everyone returning to the office is supposed to be vaccinated. I told my boss I would NOT be getting the vaccine and he said I wouldn’t have a desk in the office until I did. So I told him I would continue to wfh. He said that “wouldn’t work.” After our phone call, I got an invite for a zoom conference with my boss and an HR rep!? They’re infringing on my rights by requiring a vaccine. What can I do to make sure I keep my job?

I am in the process of interviewing for a job at Meta, and I am a little worried about the work life balance with a tech company. I am planning to start my family next year, and I want to make sure I am making the right move.
Hi everyone. I’ve spent almost a decade at a very large saas company and it’s time for me to consider my next adventure. I am open to sales or account director positions but mostly focused on finding a great product with a great culture. I have been a top producer responsible for the largest global accounts and want to represent a company I really believe in. Any companies I should consider or advice?
Even after receiving majority positive feedback, all that I can focus on is my “room for growth” feedback 😔 anyone else find it difficult to handle constructive feedback?
Does anyone ever feel kinda lost? I’m at a good point in my career and I’ve finally started a family and am happy in marriage but at times am hit with a sudden feeling of boredom… or like listlessness. I keep saying I’m so thankful and I truly am. But I also just kinda feel like “is this it?” Like what do I do now? I feel too old or tired to start something else on the side. But am unhappy somehow. Idk why.
I just received an invite ( and free ticket) to the upcoming Lesbians Who Tech Pride Summit- because Facebook got me a ticket???
I don’t work there! I’ve previously interviewed at Facebook, but they didn’t offer me the job ( although the recruiter said she’d be interested in having me try again later) but I’m still surprised. Anyone else get a similar free ticket? I mean I’m going! ( I’ve also previously applied to speak at LWT events but never did)
My manager just offered me “coaching advice” and called me “aggressive”. He was referring to feedback I gave on a call w new management, who are considering shifting our jobs to a new role but not increasing our pay. The new role is the same as a role 2 levels higher. 5 folks on my team slacked me to thank me for saying what I said. I’m shocked it took until 33 to get this feedback. Although I’m seething, I’m taking my power back and reframing it as “I spoke like a man in a meeting”.
Has anyone bombed their last interview (case or assessment) and still got the job? My assessment went over 10mins and so my interviewers and I didn’t have a chance to exchange much, but I did make an effort to ask if they still have some time and asked more questions related to the role. What are my chances 🥲

I’m new to fishbowl, so hello all! Happy to be here and that an app like this exists!
My company makes websites for car dealerships. Since the beginning of the year this year we have had 10 CSM’s resign. There has been a lot of spoken frustrations from our entire team but no actions to assist us. The higher ups don’t even like to acknowledge our department on town halls.
Benefits are also changing and all of these changes are becoming very unsettling.

Young woman (25>) in her first “big” tech career looking to buy a house with my fiancée, but the home lender is saying that since I am a contract corporate worker that my income does not qualify. Have any other agency contractors run into this? I have been employed by the same company for a year, but we were acquired and I was bumped from PT to FT contract post-grad as we did not have permission to redo a FT headcount. We have been saving for this move for two years! Any experienced advice?
Hello, I just had to vent a little and maybe ask for your opinion. So I’ve been working at my job for four years now and I’ve never gotten a promotion. On top of this, I do extra duties that my coworkers don’t do and struggle with the work load. I feel like I’m being taken advantage of and am not sure what to do. I feel like going to my boss and refusing to continue to do these extra tasks without extra compensation. Am I being a baby about this?

OKAY LADIES 🌟 question of the week: what’s the best advice you have for you from 5 years ago?
If you can, share where you are now vs where you were then.
I’m preparing for my first 360 job review, and expect I will be receiving a raise & promotion (my manager and I have discussed this a couple of times). I have a feeling the compensation will not be up to part with my expectations based on current salary trends. Any advice on how to navigate the conversation/advocate for a higher increase? Not sure of how to approach this conversation and what information I should share to help make my case. Thanks!
