Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary.

I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

I am afraid if I bring this up, they'll take it as if I am lyin/that I have offers somewhere else (bcoz that's when you resign) [cant hide bcoz will hv 2 tell sometime]

Do you think sales has a better trajectory/potential than PA? I’m hearing senior salaries being 25% higher than starting salaries and exit opportunities around 40-45% higher than starting salaries after slaving for 3-4 years. Meanwhile, sales you could make the exit salary numbers in your first year (and in some cases 2x as much even with the pandemic). What are your thoughts? PA is more stable, but I didn’t join accounting to be a CAO, I did it for money—- so where is it...?

It’s restructuring season. KPMG, GT, and other firms have begun announcing layoffs. Everyone should take some time to polish off their resume.

Any advice for approaching a maternity leave conversation when my company has no policy, no HR dept and I have no contract?

For the LGBTQ+ lawyers, if your firm offers reproductive assistance, how did you start the process of planning to start a family? Are there better years as an associate to target having a child? How do you (or should you) approach it with your partner leadership, or should you just dive right in with the HR contacts? Any advice would be really appreciated!
