Yes actually! Only one ever though but still stings. I actually wanted to say no but my boss had final say. It made the guy get some odd superiority complex and really he was just there at the right place and right time . We were desperate.

Absolutely. They quickly recognized and opted themselves out gracefully. It sucked, but it was ultimately for the best.

Hi all,
Is it ok to share your CTC with recruiter when they are not comfortable to share their salary range for the post they are hiring. Due to this many times we are less paid than our colleague as HR consider our previous ctc to provide hike while hiring.

Can someone let me know the future prospects for a solution architect in Adobe . My main concern is that I would be limited to a adobe product suite. I currently have an offer from Adobe and a big Telecom company. In Adobe it is a pure solution architect role whereas in the other company the role is more like a technical architect, the CTC being offered is nearly same. I would give preference to Adobe but I am concerned about my career progression when and if I have to leave Adobe in future.

Anyone have recommendations on how to handle being reassigned to a new boss in your org? I have no interaction with this person and have always worked directly for the CoFounder. More often than not, he comes to me for advice since I’m significantly more experienced with our company’s product. I personally think he is inept and a bullshitter. I also know this could be my ego getting in the way, but every time I see him I’m mad. I think our middle managers have personal goals overs company ones

Hi colleagues!

I'm an experienced HRBP who's looking for some career advancement advice. I'm currently studying for my SPHR and looking to take the leap to HR Director roles. While I'm a strong HRBP, I've yet to manage a team. And while I train managers on people leadership skills, I myself, haven't had a chance to flex those muscles. Those in HR leadership, should I apply for HR Director roles even though I haven't managed a team?

I’ve been a sr CW for almost 2 years now. Almost 1 year ago, I met all of the criteria for a promotion, and the quality of my work is great—both by my own account and others’. Every time I inquire, my boss comes up with another “reason” why I’m not getting a promotion. Each time I accomplish the “reason,” he gives me another one. I’ve been bringing it up for months, and it feels like it’s just not happening. I love my agency, but is it stupid to stay?
