Multiply that by whatever the points guy says those points are worth. Now how do you frel

Yeah about .015

One more 6.5hr delay and you can use those points to buy a whole can of beer to drown your sorrows about the delay. You'll need cash to buy the drink to drown your sorrows about the $h!tty compensation.

As I prepared to file my notice, the partner of the firm called me and asked me to stay. They’re willing to promote me mid year in December and increase salary next year in August. The current offer I have gives 60% pay increase and Partner still can’t match that offer after promotion. Firm leadership says here I have potential to be a partner in 8 years and talk about all the leadership support I have rn which is fair. Is this one of their tactics to make me stay or should I just leave…

I signed an employment offer with a Company a week ago, and just yesterday received a(written) offer I am very more excited about! (Better salary, opportunities..) The HR of the other company is sending me the onboarding emails to start this Monday but I didn’t update my address to get the computer shipped. What should I do? Is it bad to join knowing I will leave or should I rescind now? I haven’t signed the other offer yet and my tentative start date (due to background checks+) is in November.
