I’m being severely underpaid currently. How much does current salary affect what you can negotiate with a new company? Do you have to disclose current salary? I should be making at least 20-25k more to be in the right pay band but that is a huge jump from where I am today since I am underpaid currently.
Hi, so I have a family emergency for which I need $50k that I will need to float for the next year. I’m wondering if I should (1) pull out from my brokerage account, (2) get a low interest loan (if possible) or (3) borrow against my 401k. Thoughts?
