I just accept an offer for a 60% increase in base, WFH, previous student loan repayment (up to a certain amount), 28k a year towards further education, and insane retirement matching (I contribute 3,800 a year, the company contributes 12,800 a year for the basic tier of contribution, there’s higher levels as well).

Hey there, saw you’re OSI. I recently sent in my application and had a few interviews with some agents. Was wondering if you had some pointers or lessons learned you wish you had going into it?

I'm aiming for 10-20% increase. I've been a fed for 10+ years. I would take the lower end if there's lots of opportunity for growth or amazing benefits at the job. I'm targeting tech jobs, which often have base pay with a bonus and various stipends. I'd be fine with 10% if there are bonuses paid out, full health insurance coverage or a 4 day work week. If the structure and benefits are the same as my current job, I would want 20% min. Depending on your industry, it's not always about the base pay. There are so many other perks that can be taken into account.

Agreed wholeheartedly. Base pay is great, but things like tuition coverage/reimbursement, quality of life, retirement matching, etc are very important

35% min + learning / growth potential + WFH flexibility. covered health + public student loan forgiveness (deferred but counting toward payment) + OT compensated time adds up. It’s tough to navigate the trade offs.

If you’re offered $160k in company stock as part of your total comp package and it vests 25% annually, does that mean on your 366th day of employment a buy order gets executed for $40k of company stock at the current market price as of day 366, or does it mean a buy order gets executed at the current market price on day 1 and you have the option to sell 40k worth on day 366 and potentially realize a gain or loss depending on stock movement?

Recently got an offer from a VC as an ops manager there. However I cannot find anything about the VC. Some of their portfolio companies seem legit, but very little information otherwise (nothing except their website). Salary wise is only a slight bump from my current role. Had anyone else experienced the same thing? I like the role but just seemed a little sketched out

Hi ladies! Need some advice. My fiancé and I recently ended things and went our separate ways. I told him that I’m expecting him to cover my moving expenses and should be financially prepared to reimburse me for them. Last week I sent him an email breaking down all of the moving expenses and providing him with the total some amount. He has not replied back to my email. I then followed up with his father over the weekend and his father emailed him on my behalf. Continued below...
