Curious to hear your experience if you’ve gone on medical leave for mental illness. I came back to discover I’d been removed from my client and replaced with someone more senior the day of return.

I’m curious about this. Your employer can’t discriminate on the basis of mental health and that could mean job changes that in essence demote you. I’d ask an employment attorney about this.

Hmmm... did you do FMLA? I guess if you still have a salary and position there isn’t much you can do. IANAL but i think they are required to keep your job, but not your account(s) for you. Good luck.

I did do FMLA. Thanks for clarifying that bottom part.

Hi all. I’m making a career shift from graphic design to project management. I’ve spent the last 3 months interning as a PM at a small (<15 people) marketing agency; reported to our account manager, worked closely with the co-owners; exceeded expectations. I received a full-time offer: head of PM, reporting to one co-owner, on equal footing with my summer supervisor; $40k base. Looking at local industry standards, average sits around $75k base. Can I reasonably negotiate and ask for $60k base?

Good luck bro/sis. It's hard work going on your own. Be prepared to do all the client work, recruiting, HR, IT, admin, and anything else. You have to do it all or be responsible for it all.

Why so much pay disparity in EY GDS?

I am an individual contributor in my current engagement. Taking care of end to end. When I done the billing, got to know that they are charging the client 10x and paying me salary as 1x out of that.

More than 90% is taken by EY.

Based on this data can i demand for pay rise?

Am I poorly being paid here?

I am going to get a large bonus where after tax, I'll get a couple hundred thousand.

Should I prioritize pay off all credit cards or pay down half/some of the cards and use the rest for a house down payment?
