I'm a 25 year old male. I've been a correctional officer working for the state of Texas for the last 6 years as of 11/13/2023. 6 years means im a COV or topped out in pay currently, which is around 54k/year with benefits(retirement/pension plan, health insurance paid for, a lot of time off accumulated... but seldom used.) We got approved for a 5% raise that will start September 1st of next year. Which will bring me up to 57k/year with benefits. My issue here is that I'm so burnt out 1/2

I'm so burnt out. A lot of staff are leaving or retiring. The quality of staff that are replacing those leaving is absolutely abhorrent at best(sleeping, propping doors, absolute disregard for even the basics of security in a mid level prison, even when im training an OJT/New officer). The new generation of inmates is even worse. im honestly not sure if it's worth the money anymore. I'm vested in my retirement at 10 years. I'd lock in something. But im at a loss as to what I'd do. This has been my longest running job. Any advice would be appreciated. I don't see this system getting any better anytime soon. 2/2

I just retired from Plano PD, you should check out agencies in the DFW area. Everyone is hiring and pay up here is pretty good. We top out at 36 months at 100k and usually get a pay increase every year. I was making about $135k a year with overtime.

This company I am interviewing with is not proposing a base salary and an OTE. They are asking me to create it and I really need guidance here. It’s an AE role in medical SaaS sales for orthopedics surgery. What do I need to ask? So far I know that they cover medical insurance, there is no 401k, and there are private company stock options. It’s mainly inside sales with maybe 10% travel.

My thought was 75k base and 110k OTE. But they are saying to lower the base and increase OTE.
