Anyone have any tips for negotiating a raise? I am getting a promotion this year but am worried that the raise will be below market. Planning on using Glassdoor to show comparable salaries.
Had a boss once tell me in my analyst years he "didn't think i-banking was for me" and I couldn't hack it. Six years later still in the industry & I'm up for promotion. Happy Friday and keep hustling!
Let lower level of employees have a say in promotion of managers and senior managers. I see some worse co-workers got promoted just because they kiss bosses ass. Some technical skills, no leadership..
Fishes - Any suggestions on creating a "roadmap" to promotion? Should it be in excel? ppt? visio? I feel like I have the data that needs to go in but need some suggestions on displaying this.
Hi! I’m a solution analyst, hired on a year ago as a campus hire. What is the typical raise associated with promotion to solution specialist? Is there a merit-based raise as well as a separate promotion raise? Just want an idea of what to expect. I’m also curious regarding the performance splits—how much more of a raise can a top performer expect than an average performer? Thanks!
What is the criteria for promotion? There are so many data science managers who don’t even code, while many real ds are kept are consultants or even sa level
What would you do if you knew based on the range of potential percentage increases you could get at YE (base + promotion %) that you would still be no where close to the Industry average?
I’m a new hire senior in my M&A group, there’s an associate in his promotion year working on my first deal with me..he’s never managed a deal before and he is driving me crazy. Completely steps over me because my title means nothing since I’m learning everything and he knows more, and is so condescending. I’m trying to be patient because he’s learning how to lead but he’s really pushing me to the edge. Any advice? He definitely does not know how to work with women either.
What have you splurged on after a promotion?

How much does YOE matter? 3 YOE out of undergrad and I just got the manager promotion at a B4 consulting shop (FB hasn’t updated companies but I used to be at D 😅) Will my lack of experience hurt me when I’m looking for exit ops (ideally to tech)?
Any tips for advocating for yourself at work? I'm way overdue for a raise but I am not generally great at standing up for myself, speaking assertively, or inserting myself where I feel I might be impolite or pushy.
Debating if I should go for a promotion that a bunch of people are saying I should go for. Just wondering if it’s a weird time to do it since the higher paid you are, the bigger the target you tend...
What’s with people who just give themselves a title raise when they go freelance? Me think it’s bullshit, no?
Looking to move apartments in DC…is spending 25%-30% of take home pay on rent too much? There are a lot of smaller options for cheaper, but want to find a place that I’d want to stay at for a few years, even if on higher end. Anticipating a likely raise in April, worst case July. Want to move now. Without raise, rent would be 30% take home; with raise, 25%. Or am I just overthinking it lol
Hi everyone! I am promoting my NFT collection with an Instagram page, but I have some doubts regarding IG algorithm. As far as I know, replying to comments etc increases visibility, as it looks like it has more interaction. However, I have many bots that automatically comments immediately every post telling me to DM them for promotion. How should I treat them? Should I reply something, or ignore them or block them? Not sure how IG algorithm would evaluate interacting with bots

Just a rant: For f sake, when your coworker stops responding to your Skype, email, LinkedIn and has blocked you from their IG, do not find them on Whatsapp to initiate personal convo/flirt. AAAA 🥵
What is a polite way to handle referral requests from strangers/acquaintances with whom you haven’t worked in a sufficient capacity ? I am a noogler and often get approached for a quick chat on my role/opportunities at google which turns into a referral request. I understand that one should be able to speak to the candidate’s skillset but given how everyone in going through a challenging time during the pandemic I wanted to understand the best way to make the conversation less uncomfortable

18 weeks pregnant (1st time) and have always been an active/fit person workingout 5x/wk cardio/treadmill and some weight lifting. I've toned down my workout routine since I found out I'm preg as I got 2 v diff advice from the NP I first saw then the OB/GYN herself. NP warned of exercising as this should not be my priority now (which I agree) he warned from any running/or weight lift (were talking 40-70 lbs). Ob was so flexible about it and said I can maintain my routine as long as not exhausted.
In a predicament need some thoughts: I’m getting offered a new role (not a promotion, just a new role within my project) that has more lead level responsibilities. It seems if I take this role and do well at it, I could potentially get promoted mid year or end year. Now, this is coming at an interesting time when I was already looking to transition to a new company - an immediate transition will get me a quicker salary bump that I would otherwise have to wait a bit to get at my current company
Been living in NY the past 3 years at an agency. Im interviewing for a role in LA and excited/nervous. Felt like I didn’t really get to experience NYC because of the pandemic and now I might be leaving. Good opportunity, but have never been lived in the west coast and not sure how to decide. Advice ? Anyone going through it too?
