Hello, let’s talk about salary… I am curious. I am an EA/OM and Human Resources coordinator (New hire onboarding/off boarding mainly). My company is in the tech industry in Houston, TX. 5 days in office. Sick time and PTO are not accrued and are unlimited. I am currently at 65k. Anyone with similar position in Texas?
Can you make someone care more about producing high quality work? Or realize that 3 months in it's not OK to announce (not ask) they're taking their second vacation? Is work ethic defunct? Bewildered
Please share IQVIA holiday calendar.
Need to plan holidays and functions to attend before joining.
More and more I’m feeling like I want to take time off to be with my son, like a year or more. Anyone have an experience with this? And then coming back to public?
Can someone assist me with a negotiation? My friend is in a bad situation. She knows if she stays at current position, there’s no growth and they are looking for reasons to eliminate her position. She was offered $15,000 less than what she’s making now. Based on what the hiring manager said—his offer was a struggle to come with due to budget. She mainly wants relocation and flexible PTO since she will have to go and move from Maryland to Delaware.
Laaamee. DC area holiday party is in Tysons Corner. Who is this for, the 3 partners that actually live out there.. ?
Has anyone actually negotiated vacation time or benefits on top of their salary or sign on bonus? What does that look like? Also what kind of sign on bonus should you be looking for?
Negotiating my start date with a new employer and they are pushing me to start earlier than I’m ready. I want to get started but I haven’t had a vacation in 1 yr+ and want to get away. Advice?
Is my boss BSing me?
I work at a tech company.
After 4 years working on the same team being the only 1 designer for all design related matters, ~230 projects, directed many of them with talented artist, studios.
Approximately 60-70hrs a week. No time for vacation, always working over weekends, no holiday break (there’s no back up).
I’m still rated as junior - low level designer ;)
I was told that I’m not experienced enough because I didn’t learn from any directors.
There’s something magical about a holiday campaign that isn’t trying to get me to sign and/or drive anything.
How many vacation days do you take annually?
Going to Asia for vacation. Is it worth it to fly on United just for the miles :/ United is so trash.
Good start to vacation when the direct flight was cancelled and morphs into a worldwide tour of Europe lol
I’m being facetious.
Best holiday gift you’ve gotten from your boss?
These contract recruiters are clueless about their company they represent it’s a joke… my recruiter couldn’t even tell me the amount of PTO days/basic benefits questions I had
Very silly question, (have seen people doing this)
If am on leave and rather updating the same as PTO on DTE if I charge the time to CED/GAA, will Deloitte come to know about this? (WORK FROM HOME)
Has anyone ever had a partner make passive aggressive comments towards an associate for taking time off for a major life event (baby being born, wedding, honeymoon or death in family)?
Is it bad to ask for back to back week long vacations in consecutive months?
I have racked up vacation days that carried over.

Few recruiters reached out to me and have been offering a hefty salary. Similar situation last year was different. I.e I see salary difference of 30 to 40% in base salary range. I am too excited to take the offer’s, but also scared that is it just momentarily and when market stabilizes they would fire folks???? The companies reaching out last year and this year are different ; none of them are big tech companies.

How do I not feel bad that I’m interviewing at another firm? I haven’t told my manager or team anything, and I really like them and don’t want to leave them hanging, so it feels like I’m betraying their trust. I know that I’ll have to at some point. Any advice?

Hi, Can someone please connect me to the recruiter/HR?
There is a Test Engineer (Automation) opening in Google which I see on LinkedIn. It seems relevant. Applied a few times already but I don't think submitting resume is helping here.
Also, I hear HR at Google helps candidate prepare for the interview as well.
Any help would be appreciated. TIA 😊
I’m an American and have an interview for AWS UK. How different should I expect my salary to be. I know they’ll pay me in £, but I’ve heard salaries in the UK are significantly lower than the US. Is it likely I’ll get the higher salary since I’m coming from the US?

Thoughts? Because this is exactly how I’m feeling.
