It depends. In most cases you don't need a lawyer, you just need to negotiate. Examples of where you'd benefit from one would be if there is risk to the organization (e g. Possibility of being accused of idscrimination of some sort).

If this is happening to you I'm sorry. It's shit, but you can often negotiate. The single most important negotiation advice is to always ask for more than you want. So if they offered a month and you want two, ask for three. I've been on both sides of this send know the landscape pretty well. Happy to advise if I can be helpful.

I’ve only seen it if some combination of
1) there’s a potential lawsuit
2) you have leverage - something you have/know
3) you’re senior - usually SVP or above

Yes. But either way get your package reviewed by an attorney

Howdy, I just received and offer from Boeing for an Electrical Systems Engineer 2 position. Location is Oklahoma City.

Offer is for 89k, no sign on bonus or signing extras.

Previously I worked for another large electronics company making 93k, in Tulsa Oklahoma, with stock bonuses putting me just over 100k. I moved to Oklahoma city in the start of 2022 to be closer to family and took a pay cut to 70k.

I countered with a request for 95k and some extra PTO days. Is this reasonable? Thoughts?

Hello there, i’m wondering if anyone on this group has experience opening your own agency? I was laid off in April and had been freelancing ever since. I have been luck enough getting a few projects without really seeking people out while slowly interviewing. In the back of my mind I have always wanted my own agency. How do you get more clients and dealing with the sales/pitching process on your own? also as WOC i don’t feel like have the right network to tap into for higher earning projects
