Did anyone’s Marriott double points promotion stop showing in their account? Was supposed to go through end of Feb
How many years does it take to get a promotion from Scon3 to manager? Also is there a manager 1,2,3?
I’m hoping to steer clear of any scams by posting & I know it’s been posted before but, again, scams. Anyway, I am looking for something that can be done remotely on nights and weekends after I get home from my daily in-office job. My sister passed away & I’m now helping raise her kids. With Christmas coming, I’m nervous and dreading the season not only to not have her but will I make it a happy one for the kids. I need extra income but need to be home with them in the evenings.
I’m regularly told that they’re exceeding expectations but then they get reviews that say they’re meeting expectations on a team full of people that do way less than they do? I’ve actually been told that if there was something between meets and exceeds…I’d get that…but there not, so I get the same average performer raise, recognition, etc.
Is this normal? And is THIS what is triggering the quiet quitting movement? Let me know.
Hi all, my current title is Motion Graphics Designer. I just finished my probation (6 months which is very uncommon). I proactively asked my manager for a review because I negotiated to have "title review" included in my contract when I got hired as they didn't want to offer Senior Motion Designer. The department head (my manager's boss) is happy with the work I delivered. How should I prepare for this title review and pay raise negotiation? Currently getting paid 88k. I am expecting 95-100k
I was told that I was the chosen candidate for a new role that I applied for which will be promotion, I just recently received my offer and was surprised and decided to start negotiating. My boss immediately said that this is offer, either take it or lose it and no negotiating, and was only given a day to decide whether I want it or not, so he repost the position, and was also told that I was going about it the wrong way for trying to negotiate, Is this wrong of me to negotiate?
Hey Fishes / IBMers
How many years it takes to get Band 9 from Band 8 and how much is the hike we get during promotion ?
Almost 3 years into a position as a “technical engineer” that does both project management work and design work. During my career planning discussions I’ve been asked whether I want to go down the manager side of engineering or the technical/design side. Wondering what advice you have for making this decision. My understanding is that usually the management route offers more room for promotion and a higher pay ceiling, however I became an engineer for the technical stuff. Thoughts?
How much % raise in base salary would you accept in an offer to move from Gov to private?
Tips welcome on how to manage my “informal review” with my manager who has it out for me, re: not promoting me following a technical exam (on which I scored perfectly) and interview (on which I was failed ostensibly on subjective criteria). The promotion is a level and pay change, while tasks remain the same. I asked for this meeting. They brought in two external people this week who are the new level and pay above me, but I am training them—for my own job.

BSME ~1yoe what’s an expected pay raise for an annual review was thinking of some percentages and wasn’t sure what’s too low or too high
I've done so well in this new role within the company that they are hiring another person to assist with what I do. I've voiced to my boss that I'd like to manage this department and they indicated that this is the thought for the future. Now they are asking me to train this person while I have my plate full. Is it wrong for me to expect either a promotion or to be paid to train this person?
Hi all, 5+yoe Electrical Engineer Grade C got offer for 103k Australia with promotion as Senior Engineer Grade D. Sponsorship by company including dependent for transfer.
Is it a good one?
I'm considering a job change from my well regarded commercial litigation firm to a more relaxed, WFH ID firm. My current billable requirement is 2000, but for partnership it seems to be 2200+. There's no work from home, and there's an old fashioned dress code.
I like the complexity of the work I do, but I don't want to kill myself to make a living. Plus, my current salary is below market, so a move would come with a significant raise.
Is it crazy to give up prestige for a better life?
I have been at my job as an accountant for about 7 months. However, I have taken on some new responsibilities after my coworker left like onboarding new employees, preparing new hire bags, and doing damage claims position. I got a raise of $5,000 within my first few months. However, I was hired by a recruiter and $70,000 -$75,000 was their salary range for an accounting job. Now, my responsibilities have increased tremendously, and I should ask for a raise. How do I ask and for how much?

Looking to replace almost my full set of clubs. Bought my current set off the shelf about 10 years ago. Played over 200 rounds with them, they’re great. But I think I’ve outgrown them. Any advice on getting fitted for clubs? Not too worried about the budget, more interested in getting it right for my game.

Deutsch LA. What's the latest? Go
Hi! I just wanted to drop something here. I separated from my partner four months ago. Didn’t have that many friends to begin with. I joined Bumble BFF in hopes of making new friends in LA. I met up with someone for a long walk and ice cream. We ended up talking for nearly three hours. We had so much in common. Same names, birthdays four days apart, same age, and many other coincides. All this to say that starting a new life seemed very overwhelming four months ago and I thought that I would...

But in all seriousness, at what point did you decide to leave your agency? I really try to be as professional and patient as possible, but I really feel like I work with morons and it’s really hard for me to come to terms with.

What would you do in this situation?
We live in a small but growing town near Charlotte. The city’s housing market is booming and so is ours. There is LOT of new construction in our area and my house is 15yrs old but has lots of upgrades. My house has also appreciated well and my youngest is a rising junior so we were planning to downsize in 2-3 yrs when he goes to college so what I am trying to decide is whether to sell now to lock in the profit or wait for 2-3 yrs - continued in comments below

House won't sell because those who love it are daunted by the necessary updates (electrical panel/60 amp service, two outdated bathrooms, plumbing not up to code) 2. Take house off the market after six months of consistently lowering price ($45k). 3.Get a home equity loan to fund the updates. 4. Find great tenants to rent the house for 2-3 times the mortgage to pay back loan and take care of elderly family living expenses elsewhere.
