Hi, I recently got an offer at GM as an entry level software developer with a base salary of 65k. Since it is the lowest offer in my bundle and I want to work at GM, I sent emails attempting to negotiate my salary. I first emailed my recruiter about 2 weeks ago and still no response. I emailed the 2nd recruiter and I got one reply but not any answers to my requests. Lastly, I emailed the person who set up the interview 2 days ago. I don’t know if they went back on the offer? Any advice? Thanks
Does anyone have any insight into the below inside internal IT of Deloitte (US):
1. Org structure and levels
2. How are they different from consulting? For example, how does the scope of a manager/SM differ?
3. What does a manager/SM level entail in internal IT? (Meaning in life).
4. Are there PPDs? Is it different/similar at that level?
5. Career progression/timeline compared to consulting.
Do you think it’s easier / better to internal transfer or look elsewhere? Obviously If you have the network internally it might be easier - but they also have line of sight into what you’re doing and assume there is a mismatch in required skill sets

Pls help! I’m updating my resume with the hopes of leaving the firm in the spring. How do I go about including the industries that I’ve worked in and that I’ve been on IPOs? Currently a staff 2 (started in the summer of 2019) and I’ve been on a total of 4 busy seasons and then the 2 IPOs. I also have about 5 years of work experience (incl accounting) prior to joining EY, so not overly concerned about leaving before promo if the timing works out that way
Might be an odd question: we have multiple great ideas and sources of funding. Would it make sense to build out a portfolio of the companies as a fund or to build them directly? Concerned about spreading too thin by pursuing them all but all have significant potential. I have always been more entrepreneurial, never really thought about scaling up and running multiple companies. Thoughts?
I am writing a book about value creation in real estate (commercial). Chapters would include
-Financing and underwriting
-operating (tenant management)
Is anyone interested in being involved?
Do you know of any of your colleagues “entanglements” with other colleagues? Or is this not a thing in BL?

Is it super petty of me to keep calling and generally bugging potential clients when they ghost me and refuse to respond? To be clear, this is a policy I reserve for people who get way deep into the process, let we’re about to sign contracts, and then they just vanish.

My quota is based on invoiced sales that resets quarterly. This includes a sliding-scale commission % based on how far you’re at on your quarterly goal (towards quota) which is checked/paid once a month. The only thing that goes toward our quota is PAID sales. This excludes orders still being processed by DE (largest orders) and customers still within NET payment terms. We don’t get paid until the company gets paid. Am I missing warning potential? Am I being expected of A and judged on B?

The struggle is real...
Has anyone recently moved from Toronto GTA to Calgary. Just wanted some inputs on how the job market is and life in general. For context I have work experience in hardware tech sales and software sales (less than a year). Any specific industries and roles that are in demand.
Anyone here currently work or have worked for @Gartner as an AE in Large Enterprise? I’ve had a couple of opportunities to interview over the past several years but have passed both times. Pay appears to be pretty solid from what I’ve been told and I’d eventually like to work a smaller book size and sell services instead of SaaS, as these are usually always in demand regardless of economic conditions.

I just took a new job and the OTE is less than agreed to after going through the comp plan. Also the recruiter told me 50% of people were hitting their quota and no one was less than 70% last year. However I found out the last 6 months everyone is less than 10%. I know get that recruiters can mislead with performance metrics but giving the wrong OTE seems super unethical to me. Has anyone had this happen?
Money or passion? Spent the last 2 years building my own company after burning out. It's been tough financially but I really believe in it. Now a previous boss has made a great offer, but I'd have to give up on my company (not enough time for both). What would you do?
My company is recruiting me for a “Assistant sales manager” position. My question is what do you think I should negotiate as a base pay? Anyone currently in that position?

This kind of thing happened at the last company I was at, but luckily not where I am now because I found them really annoying too.
It becomes draining. Glad you are free from it!
Yup, we get the emails as well. I honestly just ignore them now. I guess they're supposed to be serving as motivation? But, nope not for me!
Exactly! I just hate all the emails bit spine people apparently need to recognition to be successful 🤦🏽♂️
Yep and they all get filtered into a nice little folder in my email that skips right past my inbox. Not trying to rain on other peoples parades, but also not trying to wade through everyone's individual congrats emails in my inbox.
That’s a great idea!
Yes. Theres too many. I get it, some people really value recognition. However, there are way too many emails.
We have a huge group chat where orders over a certain amount get announced and congratulated. I totally get that some huge orders take a lot of work and effort to pull in, but it does get a bit tiresome seeing all the announcements without additional context of the story behind all the work put into this order. I ended up just muting the group chat so I don’t keep getting pinged everytime there’s an announcement.
Seems counterproductive– I'd think it adds noise to the email list. Things are modern now, there could be other ways to express the congratulations– why not put it in an FB post or other online announcement.
I'd flag it as spam– not out of hate, I just get overwhelmed with a huge mail list. I'll congratulate them in person but I have to clear my mail.
