I wasn’t recommended not to go up for year-end promotions and was recently denied mid-year promotion. Mid-year outcome was because I don’t have “enough software experience.” My peers who aren’t on 3 projects at one were promoted and I still need “more experience.” I’m expected to lead engagements and tackle a learning curve while my peers are expected to master one & have a support system to help them succeed.
Raise your hand if you have to work over the weekend (even though the juniors under you don’t have to)?! ✋
I just finished my Masters at UT Arlington. I’ve been working for this firm for almost 3 years in uptown Dallas. I technically don’t have a title, obviously because I’m not license. I mainly do a lot of renderings and postproduction work along with some digital graphics for a lot of projects. Is it too soon to ask for a pay raise? Or how do I come about that?
I work as a finance assistant at a car dealership. Next month is when I’ll get a raise…but I’m sure they’ll only give me a small one. Any advice? I’m making $16/hourly, and really need a good raise to, well, live in this crazy economy.
Question regarding market adjustments. It was communicated to us a few months ago that we’d receive our adjustments in December, as opposed to September along with the other Strategy folks. Would this be in addition to the year-end raise?
Does anyone know (best guess) the the salary bands for usdc Advisory via promotion (not coming in as exp hire)?
I just found out that my male coworker makes $15k more. Backstory, new department, my manager hired me a year ago, and after 5 months, a newperson joins the team. I go through the onboarding and all the training. We do the same work but have different titles. A week ago, my manager congratulates me on my first year performance and tells me he is giving me a promotion and a raise. The new promotion is the same title as my coworker, and even with the raise is less pay. What should I do?
Hi! I currently work at a hospital as a per diem pharmacist and have been there for over 12 years. We haven’t had a raise in over 6 years. I am going to talk to my boss soon to ask for a raise. I was wondering what other pharmacists make in the Philadelphia area so I know how much I should ask for. Thank you!
Had my annual review earlier today and I’m not happy with the raise and bonus offered. Aside from the managing partner, there were several other non-equity partners in the room and I didn’t feel comfortable negotiating in front of everyone. I’d rather speak to the managing partner alone as he’s the only one who has the ability to make decisions. I’ll have to wait until Monday to do it in-person but wondering if I should set up a call between now and Monday to discuss? Would Monday be too late?
Delta is offering a promotion on flights to/from NYC (both LGA and JFK) Round trips from 11k skypesos!
Thinking of switching jobs..
working as a network tech for an ISP for a year now, no prior tech exp but prior professional/management exp. Goal: coding exp by eoy yr2
I applied for and was offered a IT team position at a resort which pays 20% more and involves more diverse skills, networking, some sysadmin, potential .net development exp and scripting.
Current employer offers 21% raise and 30% coding duties. Dept head cannot give it in writing... coding is as helper to a consultant.
Need some advice. Currently a C with 1YOE at 78k but am up for a promotion to SC at the end of year. Got an offer from another firm at 95k but would be coming in as a C. Would it make sense to switch?
For MBA apps, which one looks better: 1 - 4 year tech consulting with earlier promotion. 2 - 2 year tech consulting with promotion, 2 years start up?
I’m 33 and recently joined a company at 200 k salary, 25% LTI and 50 k RSU. Initially, I was very happy abt it as I had received a pretty big jump from my previous base pay. Having said that, all the excitement has vanished now. It just feels like this pay is not good enough to get the big $1 m house I want, raise 2 kids etc. I’m the bread winner for my fam. I don’t want to sound ungrateful but the comp package is just not making me happy anymore…

I’m a senior associate at an insurance defense and coverage firm in Texas with about 15 attorneys. I’m bringing my first client in. What should I ask for, origination credit (if so, what %), a raise, what? I’m really at a loss here. From what I have heard, there is no standard arrangement at this firm, they negotiate with each associate/partner individually.
I joined a later stage startup as a corporate strategy “manager”. I put manager in quotes as there’s no one else in strategy. It was fun the first 6 months when I helped raise equity and create an initial 5 year plan, but for the past 2-3 months I’ve been essentially doing FP&A work. What kind of opportunities are out there after this one?
I had a great review and a 5.5% raise and a great bonus at my company. But I also got a new Director and a peer manager of mine left the company, so I will be absorbing her team. In addition, my director said I will be receiving 'deep delegation' from them. I don't mind more work, but deep delegation is a new term I've never heard. What does that mean lol?

I'm a data scientist with a Master's in analytics, experience in the field and am in a new contractor role in an office where I thought I would be doing DS work. I am pitching ideas for new analytics and models, but I essentially get told that they like my idea and to talk to "Bob" so he can implement it, but they want me to write up why it will bring value. How do I get this to stop. I want to be writing the code, not just the justification. Do I start the work before pitching?

Is anyone familiar with the Hudson Valley area? The stereotype for me is that it is very white and relatively more conservative, so wondering how welcoming it would be if we wanted to have a 2nd home there? Any exurban spots that are more inclusive or not full of MAGAs/hostile white ethnics?
Not sure if anyone who’s not in the ACN bowl will be able to read this (let me know if not, and I’ll send screenshots). But.. it’s concerning how many people don’t know what a micro aggression is. Not referring to OP who asked for examples, but the actual responses are so loud and wrong.
