Hate my job but 2 months away from sign on bonus what do I do? I already got it but in my offer letter it says they have the right to take it away if the year isn’t completed. I’m interviewing for a bunch of amazing roles and I think I’m 100% going to get this one I want but am worried they want the start date in a month or so. Do I just leave bc I hate it here or ask to stay up until my start date and slack off until then?

1) tough it out and collect 2) ask new job to cover the clawback

Try option 2 - I’ve seen it work out before.

Depends how much the bonus is, how good the offer is, and how much you care. Can also negotiate into new jobs sign on bonus

Ask your new job to cover the amount as their own sign on bonus

Unless you have some sort of niche skillset, new place can't necessarily dictate your start. Tell them you have a go-live and in order to maintain relationships, you can't start until after

I would tell the new place the date you need to not get clawed back and go from there. For all you know a late start might work for them.

I have a direct report that needs an INCREDIBLE amount validation. On our team Slack, they even feel the need to announce that they were first in uncovering a tiny bit of information - “@boss I found this first!” - and they work to make sure they are acknowledged for such. We’ve had multiple conversations about the behavior - there is no need for it. They can be a team player, but can also be very quick to take all the credit. Any suggestions for how to get this person to a more confident place?

KPMG or Deloitte? I have Manager offers from both. Former consultant going back after 4 years in industry. Salary is the same, both are Change Management roles (KPMG Transformation Delivery, Deloitte Human Capital). My best friend works at BCG and thinks I should go Deloitte for brand / future opportunities, but I find myself leaning KPMG as I think WLB might be better? Would love insights.

I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
