For a fresher who’s negotiating salary for a L1 starter sales job, can he ask HR to offer as per industry standards? Or should you always give a range?

Fresher with no experience would be paid based on individual company standards. Experience or internship at someplace is needed to demand something. With that being said, never propose a range during salary negotiation. It should always be a value, even if it seems to be on the higher side.

My boyfriend of 3 years makes about 2.5x my salary (I also have student loans and he doesn’t). He thinks we should continue splitting expenses 50/50 (rent, groceries, date nights, etc). This is someone I plan on marrying, and I’m financially savvy but feel like I’m SO behind with my means/money goals compared to where he’s at. Curious to know how others approach shared expenses with their SOs? I’ve gotten a lot of mixed advice on this from friends and would love to hear more opinions.

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?

Even during market disturbance, and much high salary hike we could see that mid level product based companies like Siemens , John Deere Autodesk Amdocs Syngenta VMware haven't yet increased their salary range too much. As some service based companies and start up are ready to counter the offer but companies mentioned above still stick to their salary range stating current market as bubble and they haven't changed their salary range much. What could be the reason?

A lot of my close friends in Tech are SWEs and are making ~400-500k / year. I am in Consulting and make ~160k/yr. I know this is already a lot and I am super privileged, but I still struggle with comparison. I have no interest in being a SWE but I still struggle with the lesser money I make. How do I deal with this apart from aspiring for higher paid professions?

Started a new job a year ago, high performer. My manager suggested a promotion to Product Manager since that‘s the work I’m doing, but that would be a 50% raise. Higher ups decided instead to make a “new role” (not PM), that has no analog in the company and is hard to price via Glassdoor, etc. I feel like this is to limit my promotion salary to something like 10% from where it currently is. Is there anything I can do? FWIW: I have a PhD from top 5 program and am working in that field. Thanks!

The job descriptions of similar titles don't indicate if its a client facing position or internal.
