So I made a job update (promotion) on my LinkedIn profile and made sure to also enable 'Share with Network' but why isn't my network being informed of the good news through notifications. Is there some sort of delay or bug going on with LinkedIn? HELP
So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?

UPDATE FROM PREVIOUS POST: I was offered a ~10% jump to go from B4 to top 10 acct firm transaction services with no signing bonus. Tf? The jump doesn’t include my B4 raise coming in like a month. So basically no jump considering everything and no signing bonus to go from audit to FDD. Kinda disappointed but oh well can always keep auditing.. is it even worth trying to negotiate up? I was hoping for at least 20% increase on top of my upcoming raise

Thought this was a great interview with James Carville - as someone who feels pretty center left, this mostly makes sense to me: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vox.com/platform/amp/22338417/james-carville-democratic-party-biden-100-days Fellow fish, where do you think the missing links are for the dems to win on these issues? I actually think Biden’s messaging strategy has been largely impeccable

I’m considering applying for remote legal admin positions in addition to my current role (also remote, with flexible schedule). Do we foresee any issues with working two remote jobs, assuming no conflicts? How could I go about talking about my current role, if asked?

In your experience, do any agencies foster a culture of mentorship? Meaning mentorship is encouraged, celebrated, and incentivized? So many have mentorship programs that go unused, but I’m curious if there are any agencies that bake it into their culture.

Anybody work at Amazon? Are their offers negotiable? My husband got an offer for a senior position in the VA office paying $120k plus $20k bonus plus 13 shares of stock that vest over 4 years. My husband has ~6 years of experience (2 yrs midsize PA plus various industry roles) so the senior title is low but have heard you have to take a step down in title to work at Fortune 25 companies. He likes the offer but not sure if he should negotiate for more because it’s expected?
