Hi all! Similar to a lot of people I’m considering moving to a small city with a lower cost of living for the next few months. I’m currently based in NYC and my salary reflects that. Any considerations I should keep in mind and be prepared for when I bring this up to leadership?
Pros and cons of going into pharma? Obviously the salary. But I’m concerned about being stuck in pharma once I start as a junior. How can I be sure to grow as a writer and move on from it?

I started a new job a few months ago and the female lead on my team told me on my first week that I should have come in two levels below the level I was hired for. She then told me the only reason I came in at the level I was hired for was because of my salary requirement and I would not get promoted easily/quickly (keep in mind I’m not thinking about this during my first week lol). Since then she has never brought this up but I still feel weird about it.
Debating if I should take an opportunity at a start-up tech firm and leave Deloitte. Role is still client facing, consulting services. Sounds better quality projects, 40% raise, bonus and equity.

Just got a 15% raise with my promo to SC, now a bit above 100k base salary. Happy with the large increase, but wondering if i am still peaving money on the table by not jumping ship?

It’s unfortunate to not see immigrants speaking up about the injustices here. I wonder if it’s because they are scared they’ll be deported ? It’s unfortunate to not see the countless people that come here for work speaking up. I wonder if it’s because they are scare they’ll lose their VISA. It’s just unfortunate and I get it but to maybe some you are looked at as a coward or someone who doesn’t give af about this cause.
Despite requesting highest floor as my Platinum upgrade, I’m placed on a middle/low floor every week. 😡 At first I thought it was a fluke. Now I’m convinced the hotel staff hate me.

My last agency hired back a ton of the people who were laid off (thankfully I landed a new gig, would not go back to that place). They decided to bring back 10/19 that were laid off. Unfortunately, they are notorious for doing this on multiple occasions. What are your thoughts on hiring back those you let go? And to clarify as a group we were let go not furloughed.
