Or talk to a recruiter? Loyalty isn't rewarded at MS as strongly as I expected it to be (especially evident from what I've witnessed in analyst round tables). No harm in talking to a recruiter to see what's out there (and let them do the legwork for you based on your salary requirements).

I hear you - in a similar boat (same year as you). I still enjoy the work but often find it demeaning (depends on the team but some managers couldn't care less about my well being). Maybe try switching to another group or getting destaffed from the teams that make you feel that way. That's the route I'm going. Do you think that would be possible?

Try working at a different bank? Soon enough you'll be a VP and life is marginally better then

It is definitely certain teams that make the feeling stronger than others. But i feel like i dont have enough leverage (still) to ask to be destaffed from the teams that make me feel this way. Maybe in another year or two.. *sigh*

Hi all! I’d love opinions re: where I should be (salary/title), w/ my level of experience. I’m a Sr. Mktg Mgr in NYC tech with 10 years experience. I used to be a generalist but recently stepped into a user-engagement role, owning all user comms. I’ve been operating as a one-person team and made a large impact this year (e.g. I drove user engagement - one of our key metrics - up over 80%). I just hired a direct report about a month ago. Any thoughts? Appreciate your input!

In CA here. One of my friends reached out to me saying they submitted their notice (30 days) at their current employer who then pushed back saying they require 60 days notice? I’ve never heard of this before in my industry (tech), but is this something that is common/enforceable in the medical field? I’ve advised my friend to seek legal counsel, but wanted to see if anyone here would know if any claims against my friend would hold up in CA since we are an at-will state.
