Ah missed the last part of the comment. I’d do some research on what this type of role pays, but off the top of my head I’d say $100k

Good thing we are ironing out the essential things here….

My advice: Don't anchor yourself to your current salary. Like others said, research the range of comp for the role/ position. I think Assistant Controllers should be like $120-$140k

My current fiance makes (I make 3x) less money than me. It doesn't bother me one bit because I spend it the way I want and enjoy my freedom in being able to afford things that I couldn't have growing up. My fiance says that he'd like 80% of our income to go into a joint account. That joint account will be for marital expenses but I feel that such a huge chunk of my income will be overkill for joint expenses like mortgage, utilities, car, etc. How can I gently tell him that's too much?

Hi,
I joined Deloitte on 01st Nov, 2021. I missed raising the snapshot which was due Jan 7th 2022. As I was new to the firm, i mistook it that the snapshot has to be raised to the people who joined before June. Now that I informed my coach, he said to leave it and told that I won't be eligible for the hike this year. Any suggestions what can be done now. how would it impact ?
