Yeah, that is more likely not to work out for you.

I’m sure it’s been done. It’s a poor choice, even if it gets you a raise.

Yeah, don’t do that

Okay so I have to admit I have done this. But was so frustrated at the time and honestly couldn’t give a fuck. It worked well in that situation but in hindsight it was very risky and as others have posted above - not the smartest idea. It was also in a much better market.

Lol. They don’t care. Quit without a job if you want to quit but they won’t think twice about it

Not straight-up threatened to quit, but made a solid case for why I deserved a promotion+raise, and basically said that if something didn't happen soon I'd have to start actively pursuing other opportunities. Took a few months, but it worked. I wasn't an ass about it, just respectful and and honest, with a portfolio full of work examples.

Marriage or promotion 😞 I’m on track to make partner at my company. Due to the audit services we sell, we have to disclose all financial relationships, including those of our SOs. I’m engaged to a private investor, and there is no way he is going to disclose/sell investments because my company tells him to (I don’t blame him; I wouldn’t do this, in his position, either). This means I have to quit if I want to marry him 😞 Anyone else experience this kind of compromise / challenge? Any advice?

There's a lot of backstory to this but I can only type so much SO I've been with my company for 10.5 hours and just found out they've increased their base pay for starting employees $3-5/hr. I have received my annual 3-4% raises, only because I always make sure to ask for it, but nothing more. They didn't even acknowledge my 10 year anniversary with the company and it's a pretty small company (less than 100 employees). I feel I should get a $3-5/hr raise since the base pay was raised. Thoughts?

Receiving any negative/constructive feedback scares the sh*t out of me. I had a toxic previous job experience with a manager who used any small thing as a means to scare me out of employment. Now at my new place of employment, if I do get a constructive comment or something to work on, a lot of anxious thoughts run through my mind until I can somehow calm down and go back to working somewhat productively again - but I always have that fear of being fired over it. 😔
