When to break-up with someone? I’ve been dating my gf for 6 years (2 long distance 1yr on a break and 3 living together. Nothing terrible about the relationship but I’m not happy and no longer feel in love. I’ve tried working it out but haven’t felt the relationship has gotten any better. I feel at this point the best thing to do for both of us is split (she shouldn’t be with someone that can’t love her fully). So here’s the options continued…
Is buddy and counsellor same in EY Gds?
New mom here experiencing some burn out that is affecting my home life. I work for a fun brand and love the work I do, but I’m feeling overworked and under appreciated lately. We also just moved our office into the city and, although I only need to go in 2x a week, I can already tell the 1+ hour commute will get old. I’m considering jumping ship and going for a safer, boring job for better work-life balance, but am scared I will miss the fast-paced environment. Anyone go through this?

Additional Posts in Salary Negotiations
Mentioned to my boss this week that I had reached burnout & that I was beginning to consider my options. I have received offers recently 50K above what I make now & communicated that. On Friday they said their boss would be touching base with me next week. I am in above average standing with the company & received a good annual raise earlier this year. The issue is I took the job below my market value to get out of a much worse job 2 years ago. Realistic outcomes for my upcoming meeting?
Hey everyone! Looking for some help to figure out a salary range for a mid level IC (customer success) at Amazon. Does anyone have insight? Thanks!!
I was contacted today by our President saying the company is looking to “backfill” with current employees who have buying experience for the next 1-2 quarters. As I have said experience, he wondered if I’d be “willing to entertain” being one of those people. He mentioned extra money (no specific amount) and asked me to mull it over this weekend. How do I navigate this professionally, make sure to protect my time & work in my current role, and negotiate proper comp if I decide to accept? 🤷🏻♂️
Is it to late to renegotiate a salary after an offer letter is presented but not signed?
While I was on mat leave last year, we hired a contractor to be me and he’s still with us even though I’m back. I recently started approving his hours and just found out he’s getting paid $65/hr grossly, while I make $35/hr. Is this normal for contractor to make more than FTE?? I’m a little upset right now considering he’s doing like college entry level tasks and I’m over here doing a lot more.

I’m returning to work from maternity leave can someone tell me if I can reach out to HR to discuss pay review/increase upon my return. I know for a fact through colleagues I’m the lowest being paid at this company. New comers make same amount or even more. How do I initiate this convo ?
What does it mean when you ask the salary range for a position during the screening interview with the recruiter, and the recruiter tells you the target base salary is $115k? Does that mean if I am offered the job the offer will be for $115k base?
So there I was minding my own business when my supervisor randomly exclaims “Please Don’t Leave Us”, I know you must do what’s best for your family, but if leaving us is on the table…then take it off the table”
Naturally, I laugh awkwardly…
Note: Ive made no mention of me attending an interview with another employer nor my lack desire to deal with this establishments self-centered motives to anyone.
Can someone advise what to do in this situation?
I’ll provide a few more details below.

Whenever you receive an offer, how long do you take / ask for to consider the offer & decide?
I'm a Marketing student and was recently offered part time internship positiom on the marketing team of really cool FinTech Venture Capital company .During the final interview , I luckily asked for their pay range for interns and almost fell to the ground when he said $30/hr min. I would have said $18/$20 if I hadn't asked him instead .The average student earns between $15-$20 ...so it sounds really good but that's only an opening offer. Should I ask for a higher amount like $35 -$40?

I found an internal role I’m going to apply for but wanted to see what the salary range truly was for a Strategic Partner Manager?

Best place to find accurate market valuations? I’ve read over and over that self reporting sites like Glassdoor and Payscale aren’t accurate and not considered legitimate by large corporations when negotiating salary.
I have my Bachelors & I accepted a job at a starter up healthcare tech company which is growing. When I accepted the position and salary I honestly didn’t know what to expect or how to negotiate a salary pay. I accepted the job and salary because it was more than my old job and I needed to get my foot in the door. I’ve been here for 3 months and I have found out I am getting underpaid than what other project coordinators are getting paid. 10k less than them. How should I ask for a salary adjust
A company just reduced their offer after initial verbal offer was 'rejected' by comp team. Reasons were that it was higher than others at that level currently in the position. And that "This is the best they can do".
Thoughts on how to best counter this? This is a lowball.
Sales Ops Mgr - UK

I interviewed for a job at a new company, and the role would be a huge pivot for me. When asked, I gave the absolute minimum I would be willing to accept (my current salary) since I have no experience in the area. The company came back and offered an interview for a different role, much closer to the job I currently do. Is there any way to salvage the salary negotiation if I’ve already given them a low number for the original job I applied for? I’d like to negotiate a raise if I’m not pivoting
Not a question but very discouraged. I asked for a 20% raise and they came back with “ and all of my years at (won’t disclose yet) I have never seen a 20% increase approved”. I’m thinking well can you ask for fuck sake… ugh so over this.
