I need some advice- how do I ask for a pay raise? I recently joined Deloitte (Toronto) as a consultant 5 months ago and I make 65k. Initially I thought this would be great but I’m struggling to keep up with my expenses (I live by myself, international student trying to support my little brother through school as well) I feel like I very recently joined & I haven’t done much notable work. I’m afraid to ask!
Hey all - need some important advice. I feel like I under-bargained base/starting salary at Slalom. Got 79K base with up to 8% bonus in a low-to-medium cost of living area as an AC. I'm 1 year out of college (top 40 uni) with ~1 year of NON-consulting experience (mostly programming/software dev. experience at some small companies). How should I expect to increase the salary up to six-figures for the next 2-3 years?

Current financial situation is - ~200k of student loans; ~80k of investments; and a starting salary of 200K.

The Mom Project is how I discovered remote accounting positions. I’m a father of two girls under three and I wanted to work from home to watch them grow up and I also have an extra bedroom so WFH is ideal for me.

The owners of our company like to do a holiday handout at Thanksgiving each year. They used to do a whole Thanksgiving meal (turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pie).
