Has anyone else noticed a salary stagnation especially in the more mid-senior levels? I have been getting a lot of pushback and recruiters saying my asking price is out of the range for the position - when it's the logical 20%+ I would want for starting a new position. Anyone else seeing this?

Well at some point you have maxed out the amount of money you can make by job hopping. You are probably at that point. At that point, you have to either get promoted or gain additional skills and switch.

What if you get competing offers?

If you're getting that same message from multiple recruiters, then NRI1 is right - you've probably hit your max for now.

I've seen this too - I think companies are being a bit more risk-averse with the market so crazy, they're not willing to double down on anyone. If you've maxed out, it might be an area thing? Where are you based?

I also tried to not care about the recognition but then how do I make sure I get to move my path up and forward in the current role?

I am an analyst. To be honest, I feel like I am sinking, and everyone knows it. I was not an Econ major in college (poly Sci) , and I am new to excel. However, I feel like I am constantly thrown into the deep end, and no one wants to help me, answer my questions, or help guide me through asks. I was under the impression that this would be a teaching environment. Worst feeling when you feel stupid, and you know that everyone else thinks you are stupid too. Will prob b fired.

At the end of the week I also end up with a bunch (50+) of open Outlook windows related to meeting invites. Basically, I look at my calendar, double click the invite then join the Zoom meeting. It takes me directly into the meeting and leaves the invite window open. Wash, rinse, repeat and by Friday there is literally one for every meeting I attended. Unfortunately, you can’t close them all together because it will ask you “Want to save your changes?” for every single one. Thoughts?
