Not a senior manager, SR FP&A for a business unit at a large established fintech company. I was recently hired but I am feeling very underpaid. Originally I asked for 100k, but was told that 80k + bonus was the best they could do. I'm trying to get a feel for what others are being paid for similar roles, and if there is anyway I could leverage RTO/ inflation data before the 6month mark to get a salary increase.

How is the joining bonus given by pwc usi for SA2?

I need of some feedback from those in Recruitment. I graduated last May with a BS in HRM, at age 51. I have had no luck finding a job. My resume professionally done. I graduated with 3.68 GPA.

It appears that everyone wants at least 2 years experience. How can I get my foot in the door without experience? Should I get my Masters?

Today is my Birthday. I lost my job last week; my family didn’t even wish me a happy birthday, my close friends are wrapped up in their own lives. I’m a sweet, kind, and genuine person, but I feel like nothing good happens to me.

How does one stay afloat when constantly being knocked down?
