Hello everyone. Is anyone in the process of joining D-USI ? I received a 3rd revised offer letter about a day after the “market adjustment”. I contacted the HR and informed them that there were no updates on it, and they said a new one will be sent with updates.
I’m curious as to what these updates are. Anyone else facing something similar ? I’m assuming it’s minor changes to the T&C, and not a comp update.
I have gone through the salary portal available on square and found out that my base pay is even less than the minimum pay range mentioned on the portal. I have talked to my band 35,40 but couldn't get any solid answer from them. Any help/suggestions what could be done in this situation?

Startup staffing question…do you think it’s professional/ethical to check references for multiple candidates before making an offer? Just had a company ask for my references and then tell me that they’re still reviewing four candidates. I never would’ve offered my manager if I knew in advance.

One of my queries is regarding the Medical Insurance. As per the offer letter it mentions "Mediclaim Scheme with Floater Option of Self + 3 or Self + 5 with/without parents. " : INR. 150,000/- to INR. 3,000,000/-
Does this mean that without paying extra, the med insurance is just 1.5L?

I've been with my boyfriend for about 2 years now. I only get to see him on the weekend because we have opposite working schedules during the week. But I've noticed his family asking him for help on stuff on the weekend and he tends to try to fit it in some way. This annoys me since he sees his family throughout the week but my only quality time is on the weekends. He also hasn't been doing anything to get him closer to his life goals because his family always asks him for his time and money....

I’m currently interviewing for a Logistics Specialist position at an IT services firm that provides consulting and other services. There was first a phone-interview, a second interview at the office, and now I’m scheduled for a third with one of the owners of the company and the CFO. I was wondering how might I prepare for this, what type of questions might they ask me? Also what questions should I ask them?
I hope everyone is doing well?

How many people’s jobs would you absorb before requesting your role be re-evaluated/leveled/comp adjusted? I am already doing one person’s job when we decided not to backfill them when they left and just got nominated to take over someone else’s responsibilities while they are out on a multi-month leave. I could handle this if I was an individual contributor but I also have a significant team I’m managing and the additional responsibilities are coming at their expense which is unfair to them.
