Is 4% a good match for 401k? Can I negotiate an increase? Thanks

I've seen better and I've seen a lot worse. Normally you can't negotiate; however, what you can try to do is research competitors or ur old company and compare it and leverage it asking for increase in salary to make up for the difference in 401K. I've done this myself and got 5K in salary increase.

Awesome! Makes sense 👍🏼

Normally this is standardized for everyone, but you could try.

It’s not bad though. I’ve seen worse, and I’ve seen better.

I get 8% match

Yes, please share

My previous job was 10% match. But the pay was 70% less so it all evens out.

The most I’ve gotten is 6%. I tend to stick with that, but I’ve had companies that have no matching (start-up)

When is the right time to ask for a raise in salary? Nearing the end of my first year at current tech startup. We don’t have a formal process to request a merit or cost of living salary increase that I know of… there’s less then 15 people in our company. I made a big no no when joining the company and did not negotiate the salary before accepting. Should I informally chat about future compensation to my boss? He’s a pretty laid back guy and I think he may be flexible with me.

Would you charge a higher day rate for Big Tobacco? I somewhat still smoke, and I know that the effects of advertising somewhat played a macro influence on my decision to pickup.

So I'm not totally morally against it, but I feel like I should charge like I am.
