If you have a solid offer, tell your boss you’re grateful for the work, opportunities, and mentorship and don’t want to leave but found X, Y, Z attractive. If you’re meant to stay there, your boss will make sure you’re heard and get the $$$ you deserve. If not, get after it and slay in the new place.

Do you actually have a solid offer?

don’t play that game if you’re not prepared to leave. I’ve seen some people get burned when their boss calls their bluff.

For the record, i am happy where i am, but the new place seems to have better perks.

Yea, that’s kind of what I️ was worried about. 👆🏻👆🏻 but the new offer has better pay and benefits, so I️ wouldn’t be too bad off. Just not sold on the work per-se.

Been practicing a year now. Of 6 attorneys, 4 will be retiring soon, and I was brought in to hopefully take over. I am troubled: first that my partners largely provide me with no guidance. They handed me a client with a large quantity of fairly straightforward casework and have been hands off since. There also hasn’t been any talk of a raise/performance review. How should I ask for guidance/mentor ship? How do I ask for a raise, or should I presume one is coming?

I have a union position as a therapist. My management kept telling me "we're working on it" when I asked about a raise since getting my LPC. Our union contract does not renew until 7/1 of next year. I brought this to my supervisors attention and now the director emails me to say basically "yes, we are working on a raise but nothing can happen until 7/1/2022". Has anyone else had this experience? Of management being vague and just stringing people along?

There's a lot of backstory to this but I can only type so much SO I've been with my company for 10.5 hours and just found out they've increased their base pay for starting employees $3-5/hr. I have received my annual 3-4% raises, only because I always make sure to ask for it, but nothing more. They didn't even acknowledge my 10 year anniversary with the company and it's a pretty small company (less than 100 employees). I feel I should get a $3-5/hr raise since the base pay was raised. Thoughts?
