Why not wait out the obligation and then negotiate a bonus next year? Why would you want money that could be in your account go to the employer you're trying to leave. That's like having your spouse pay off your ex.

Why would you have to disclose that?

A smarter way is not the bonus but to build it into ur salary. Lower tax impact and better negotiations for future salaries. Just saying...

My previous company never actually asked for the repayment.

Shouldn't I bring that up to negotiate a signing bonus?

That's your issue

Would you ever ask an interviewer “what do you consider my weaknesses as a potential candidate?” Or something of that nature? I’ve been advised to ask it before and am curious.

Interested in some other perspective as I have a final interview later this week

I went through a pretty rigorous interview process for a marketing project manager but ultimately wasn't given job.

How do I again the experience if I'm limited by the type of work we do?

Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office?

How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
