What are you trying to do? I requested a comp call but not sure they will be very helpful

A comp call is a disaster in the making. Could you elaborate why you feel shortchanged?

Why do you say a call would be a disaster? I feel short changed because I didn't get anything, not even a cost of living increase and it didn't help my PM was not happy when I said I was pregnant

Honestly, comp calls end up being a formality and ive rarely ever seen an actual positive outcome out of it. How many months were you out? Getting a zero hike is definitely not acceptable

The 6 months allotted

What was your rating?

It was average when looking at the scatter plot (no ratings available). My PM was vocal about my leave and I also don't think those filling out snapshots understood the questions

You did get an overall rating yea? Irrespective of what the PM on one project thinks, what matters is your overall rating. I had. 2 the year i was put and got a 14% raise

I've been an EA for about a decade - I've worked at Start Ups, Post-IPO companies, and Venture Capital Firms. If you are a rockstar EA and looking for a place where people are genuine and kind, I would urge you to apply at Snapchat. Going to Snapchat was the best move I ever made. They REALLY prioritize their employees, and the benefits are absolutely incredible. I hear a lot about toxic EA cultures at *certain* other companies and Snap just does not do that. (Be warned: it's a FAST pace.)
