Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. Hang in there.

Yeah jumping is the only way to market correct your salary. Even if you stayed for a promotion, they would give you the lowest raise possible just to keep you. The promotion is only good for more leverage elsewhere.

Have received a competing offer. Tbh I have no interest in leaving Accenture (for a variety of reasons), but wanted to see if I can use it as leverage for more money + promotion outcome. From what I understand I have a really good chance at the L7 promo in the upcoming mid year results. How do I navigate this?

Question about a raise…I’m a mid level AD and haven’t had a raise in 2 years. I was a key part of bringing in 2 new accounts last year and my review is coming up. How much should I ask for?

I was invited to a second round of interviews at Fitch Ratings. I think I lowballed myself to the recruiter. I told her I would not accept anything less than $85k, now my friend is telling me I shouldn't accept anything less than 20% raise. How can I fix this if I actually am offered the job? Is 20% reasonable?
Currently a credit analyst @HSBC at $80k base with btwn $5k-$10k bonus depending on my rating. 1.5YOE in credit. Should I even consider the move to Fitch at all? Helpppp

I have an offer that is a 50% pay raise (TC $170) and 4-day work week at a small org! Tried negotiating up 5k—was told no and there’s another person they were also interested in as a close 2nd. Current org wants to counter offer, details coming on Mon. Told new org I’d give final answer Mon after I see the counter. Then I got invited to a final interview round at Meta, with their final decision coming on Wed. I’m worried about losing the current offer if I try to push it out to Wed…help!

Do you have trouble putting a title to a risk, a risk is a combination of multiple factors as one equation (i.e Threat event, impact, likelihood, control strength etc.) And really doesn't have a title. A combination of factors are the unique risk.

Law student here. I’ve been a law clerk at a mid-sized firm consistently for over a year.

I am confident they have been pleased with my work so it seems odd to send me through a full interview. Is this a red flag? General thoughts?
