Yes. 1) comparable or better jobs out there; 2) younger generation no longer want to put in the work anymore

1) true, plenty of other well paying industries with better marketing. Further we are into the wellness generation rather than the gen x / boomer work hard and burn out generation.

2) this is well proven to be incorrect

Hello fishes, I am UI UX designer currently drawing 7.2 LPA with 1.7 years of experience. Recently got an offer of 9 LPA with 1 lakh JB from a startup which is only 25% hike, stating that I have only 1.7 years of experience. Am I getting low balled ?

I’m a designer with about 6-7 yrs of experience (combination of in-house, agency, and freelance). I’m currently working in-house as the sole designer for a brand and making $66k.

On any given day, I do e-mail design, web/UI design, digital design/apps, social assets, events, video/motion, illustration, print, and packaging/display. The workload is crazy and I feel pretty undervalued (currently looking for something else).

Thoughts? Am I right to feel taken advantage of here?

Currently have the FRM title.

I'm hoping to eventually do CAIA, but only after I'm done with CFA. I'm also hoping to do non-financial certifications, like Certified analytics professional (CAP), and learn about web development.

While I may have the title of manager, I am still an individual contributor. The type of work I do involves quantitative analysis/data analysis/science.

Any suggestions as to what I should start with?
