Should be getting a raise by the end of this month, I am definitely being underpaid, do I bring this up before or after I find out how much my raise is?
I’m being promoted to Manager this November but recent got offer from a fintech. In money term the manager base pay is 5k greater than the new role but i’m negotiating to match the offer with my Manager salary. Should I wait until promoted or move asap? I dont want to continue working in external audit so trying to pivot to data analyst role/IA in the fintech before moving to full DA/DS position… but thinking the Manager promotion would help negotiate salary in the future.
Any tips or advice on negotiating salary when receiving a job offer? How can I ask for more without the risk of losing the offer?

Does anyone have insight into compensation bands for consultants in the communications or public affairs fields? I see a lot of posts about salary for Cs, SCs, Ms, etc (wayyy more than what I make!) but I know ranges on here include some career disciplines that are typically more lucrative. I can’t tell if I’m in range for the offering I’m in or if I’m severely underpaid.

Any specific areas to make sure I upskill to check the right box? Any tips on how to make it work?

I've been promoted into a management role from Dev roots, so need to learn more PM processes to be an effective manager in day job, plus would like to start building my own SaaS solution.
SO is an attorney as well and has been diagnosed with a serious illness. We can’t spend much time together due to risk of COVID exposure so it’s really hard for me emotionally. I don’t want it to affect me at work and faking a brave face is so draining. Just needed to vent, I’m so grateful for this group.
Sometimes I feel like my boss takes "coaching" a little too far. He's all about "breaking me down" in order to "build me up". He's told me things like my voice is too boring when I present, or that I didn't do enough in my last role, suggesting that I wouldn't be in his team if it weren't for him in team meetings. Yesterday he asked me to call someone (on a non-urgent topic) who was on DND, and when I told them I'd call them later, he mimicked me. Am I being too sensitive?

Honestly, I don't know how anyone is staying in Big 4, even partners. I sense a lot of frustration from field partners at KPMG with the unprecedented turnover we are seeing and constant new initiatives. Wonder how many of them would quit if they didn't have huge loans and weren't tied up for years with the firm to get that huge pension?
