Interviewing a a FAANG company:

What is your total expected compensation (include base, bonus, equity)?

Any recommendations on how to answer? Odd that it came before the phone screen - very caught off guard.

My standard answer - "I'm flexible. It really depends on the details of the opportunity."

If pressed, I give them a range from my min acceptable to +200k.

Hi fishes,

This annual appraisal I have got a good % of appraisal increment on my salary but I was not promoted to a senior developer (although I have been mentoring a junior dev in my team and been part of building the project by implementing new technologies and tweaks) and my total YoE is 3.5+ years. What could be the reasons? What should I do now?

Thanks in advance!!

On the other, it’s not relevant to this role. Do I cut?

Hi all! for TikTok’s Brand Partnership Manager role, how hard has it been to hit quota? They offered a pretty low base with higher OTE.

I informally accepted a position at Silicon Valley Bank, after attempting to negotiate a higher wage, the recruiter advised this wasn't a possibility. However, while completing the background check I received another offer from Wells Fargo. The SVB position most aligns with my career objectives but the Wells Fargo position pays more (13k difference). I want the SVB position however I would like to leverage the Wells Fargo position to negotiate a higher salary. Any suggestions on strategy?

I'm getting ready to negotiate my salary at my PR firm (been here 10+ years), prepared to get a lowball offer, so I'm collecting the usual lines -- the value I bring to the company, my steadfast dedication (internal read: many people are bailing), growing work, etc. I'd like to include inflation in the convo -- but that's a new one for me. Inflation is 9% right now, so I'd be looking for a raise that's inflation plus -- ideally 15% or more. How has the "inflation" piece gone over for you? TY!

I've had my run-ins with people who like to linger in their thoughts and spend time circling in conversation because, whether they knew it or not, they were not sure what they were looking to achieve.

This has burned me in the past (e.g., Hours spent revising material, unnecessary back-and-forth communication with clients).
