Hello, let’s talk about salary… I am curious. I am an EA/OM and Human Resources coordinator (New hire onboarding/off boarding mainly). My company is in the tech industry in Houston, TX. 5 days in office. Sick time and PTO are not accrued and are unlimited. I am currently at 65k. Anyone with similar position in Texas?

Hey, another question for y’all. How should I reach out to a recruiter who offered me a full time position but I rejected for a better offer? At the time I was offered the position my main concern was lack of guidance/support from leadership. Now, a year later I have experience being in a role with limited over site (not as scary as I initially thought it would be) and feel confident I would excel in the role I rejected. How would you approach this situation? Thanks in advance!!

US/Canada based fishbowlers, I'd love some insight. How do you feel about the fact that most jobs only give 10ish vacation days off a year and no state-paid parental leave? I'm based in Europe and as part of my Masters, I'm currently studying the concepts of work/life balance and the ideal worker norm (the covert norm that employers expect you to adhere to e.g. Work is top priority, devoted to work, always available, never lets other commitments get in the way of work, goes above and beyond...
I do have an experience of 11 years in test automation profile. What grade or band should I ask or can be offered. And what is salary range I can ask for? Currently holding two offers of 23 and 25

Is working for startups the only way to have faster career progression than staying in consulting?

How common is it for an interview process at MBB to get drawn out for 3-ish months? I had my initial screening call with a recruiting company back in early May, then had a call with the actual MBB recruiter a week later. Since then, I’ve been interviewed by the person who would be my boss, followed by a partner, and then another partner, and I was just scheduled to be interviewed by another partner next week (after being told the last interview was my final). Am I just being yanked around?
