I have been working and dedicating myself so much for an agency, and I’ve got nothing in return. For 3 years, surrounded by “can’t do” people. Pushing good work is considered rude. So many great ideas going to waste, no career advancement, no salary raise. Today I was close to a meltdown. Thinking about running from my own life because of work.

Or.... maybe just try getting a job at a different agency? Just a thought.

Honestly seems like you should have left a while ago.

Never dedicate yourself to an agency? They never put you first and you shouldn’t put them first either, it’s a business with politics, it’s a job! Do what is good for you, and honestly it seems like leaving this agency would be best. And find things you love about the process

This sounds exactly like where i worked for the last three years. But they never had an acd title, so probably not. I almost got fired for offending other departments by pushing them for better work. Got out to a place that’s much better but I still hate this career right now. Too much work, too many hours, too many bosses.

Hi! I need some help negotiating a raise. I have been working for this company for exactly 3 months now, but I was hired as an AGM. I'm not specific on what my responsibilities are as AGM.
However the GM at the time, quit 1 and a half months in. I was thrown into the role and have been handling it since.
My regional calls himself our GM but is never on site.
Was reluctant to cover my shifts when I became sick and requested time off for a few days. (4 days)
Any thoughts?

I’ve been having a snoop on consulting bowls and I’m disheartened by the outdated views I am coming across… from people getting their panties in a twist on salary transparency (aka being very offended when colleagues talk remuneration) to managers complaining about the silliest things (like people asking for a performance review and promotion instead of sitting quietly in their role not bothering anyone until superiors bless them with an under-inflation pay rise and likely no bonus).

Im an actuary looking to change careers to portfolio management/investment. A recruiter from Northwestern Mutual reached out recently regarding an investment associate position with their public investments department.

1) What is the general opinion on the investment arm of Northwestern Mutual? Is this a good opportunity or should I be looking elsewhere?

2) Does anyone know what the salary range for this position would be? I looked on Glassdoor and it ranges from 70-140k which is broad.
