Joined D in August. For insurance I opted for a few addons amounting to 26K to be paid from my end. In my previous Organization, they would deduct these addon amounts in 4/8/12 equal instalments. In D they deducted the whole part in this months salary. Does D not have the option to deduct in instalments? The in hand salary was low and I can barely cover my fixed financial commitments and basic needs.

Looking for some advice on making a career switch. Currently in FP&A for a fintech company making $80k a year with a 10% bonus and options that are exercisable when the company goes public. I have been with this company a little under a year. I just received an offer to join a boutique consulting firm that would draw on my current financial and technical experience. Compensation is $100k a year with a 20% bonus. I love my current company, but is this a no brainer? Should I ask for a counter?

What’s the average percentage salary jump from a junior AD to an AD?

Nearing the end of the interview process for a mid level Product Designer role but experience wise I’d be considered more junior. What do I ask for in terms salary? (Sorry if it’s a stupid question) I’ve gone through whiteboarding and a design challenge so skill wise I think I’ve proven to them I am capable. They gave me a range for the role so would I just go with that? It’s higher than average in the market and one I’d be happy with but I feel weird since I’m not actually mid level.

I have an opportunity to take a contract to hire position with a previous client hotel chain at a 60% increase in my current salary. The catch is that it’s only for 6 mos. If I staff after that, it drops to ~170K, but with great benefits and position. Or I could not; could be cut loose, or move on. Any advice? Hoping to hear a success story, but I’ll take anything.

I’m curious how much you guys have negotiated signing bonuses when the salary offer is firm due to company structure. Is it ridiculous to ask for a signing bonus twice as large as offer when they are only offering 2.5k? An 100% increase sounds crazy but going from 2.5k to 5k sounds reasonable. Side note, what have been your signing bonuses recently and how many YOE?

Resume gap: My position will be abruptly end in December (was informed this week). However, I won't be interview ready in the next 2 weeks.

I'm also told hiring decisions at places like AWS & GCP take time and it might be a few months before an offer letter is received.

Hello, I got an offer from a different firm but they only offered me $15k + more than my current base salary with no signing bonus. I don’t know if I want to accept it, don’t think the increase is that much. I am going to ask for $15k but also check with my current employer if they can match. I don’t hate my current employer and will probably leave for a industry job next year so not sure what to at this moment.

I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.
