I’ve been doing civil defense work for well over 15 years. I am seriously thinking about switching sides. I’m tired of being valued by how much I bill instead of my results. I’m also tired of billing 10+ hours a day. And really I’m just overall miserable. Can anyone tell me what being a plaintiffs attorney is like? Do you get salary and commission? Do you really have no billable hours? How does that work?I make 180k a year, can I get at least that much as a salary doing plaintiffs work?
About to turn down a job offer that would nearly double my salary after speaking to several former associates of the firm and hearing some not so great things. The word “sweatshop” was used multiple times yet I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around it. This is truly “you can’t pay me enough to be part of that” in action. I am betting that I can get the same money at a place with a better culture - hopefully I am right!
I got an offer from OpenText Canada for a Sernior Java Developer. How much is the salary for such positions? Is 70k per annum low?
If a recruiter asks in the first round what my salary expectations are what do I say? I’d prefer having them tell me what the range is before I say what I want.
Got a call from Slalom and they refuse to disclose their range or even process tbh, calling it informal! Said we don’t want people who want to work for money;) means they don’t pay well? Any fish know range for a director/ sr director level?
RobertHalf salary guide, how accurate is it in comparison to your salary? See 2017guide, accounting for the market variances on pg 24-25, does your salary, bonus included, fall within ranges on pg 18?
How to negotiate salary offer at a startup given the following. Offer is -$5k my current salary, but I'm up for promotion in a few months which would bump me +~$10-15k, also have an offer from their direct competitor but it's -$10k my current salary since they are earlier stage. Do I have any leverage to negotiate the original offer or no?
Was on a call with a recruiter and gave my desired salary range and he said that that’s completely unrealistic and that only people with 3-4 more YOE than me will have a shot at that level of comp. Do recruiters do this to get you to sign for less or are they telling the truth? I know people from my start class signing for more which I was shocked by him rejecting this range.
Is it wrong not to actively seek work when you’re just waiting for the bonus to hit your account so you can finally put in notice?
What % of your FT salary is benefits? I’m trying to figure out how to convert my freelance rate to a FT rate if I get converted. I’m a junior creative in NYC, btw.
Looking for info on using independent recruiters. Had one reach out to me to place me for a role. I’ve always went directly to the agency or internal recruiters. Is there an advantage to using one? Why not contact the agency directly? Do you settle for lower salary through one due to the agency needing to pay them?
If you put in your two weeks notice before promotion bonuses are paid, but promotion bonus payout day occurs during those two weeks, do you still get your promotion bonus?
Anyone can help me with what should be my inhand salary?

Hi, would like some help with deliberating my offer. Currently in MPLS with an offer to jump firms to PwC and move to NYC. The offer is 79k (10k raise) with 8k sign bonus (1+ YOE). Concerned that the raise isn’t enough to be significant due to CoL. Thoughts would be extremely helpful and appreciated.

Does your admin come up with the most crazy ideas for placing kids in case there isn’t a substitute available? We have to make a list to divide our kids among other classes to ensure they are being taught every subject… OK sounds reasonable, but the kids in your switch class have no where to go and won’t be receiving academics in every subject. It astounds me how short sided these plans are.
At what exact point did you decide "This is it, I am starting my exit job search tomorrow"? I know this might not be the most accurate bowl for this
