Does anyone else compulsively calculate potential promotion and/or merit raises just to see what their new salary could be? I calculate a worst, mid, and best case scenarios regularly.

I am aware it is a super unhealthy habit of mine and that my estimates are likely way off anyways.

Just me? Ok cool.

I've got an excel workbook dating back to my early 20s that models various compensation and retirement scenarios. I add a new sheet for each year and update all the projections twice a year.

It's pretty funny to look at projections from 10+ years ago and see how far they've diverged from reality.

Hi Fishes,

I was offered RSUs for the first time as part of my compensation. I think I understand the concept as such but there are a few intricacies I was looking to clarify. Could anyone let me know if my grant date is 9th nov, 2022 and vesting period is 1 year, will I get RSUs allotted at the price of stock on grant date or vest date (in this case 9th nov, 2023)? Happy to connect in DMs as well

Thank you for your time!
