No. Do your job or don’t.

I think you can. Your CC has to go bat for you though. In all honesty, the salary increase will only temporarily make you feel better. You'll still hate it there.

You are either: 1 very good, so good that you are irreplaceable 2: good, and cheap. If you are 1, I would expect you to have trained a junior by now bc you are probably too expensive. Since no one is irreplaceable, my gut tells me you are a cheap relative to your peer group so he wants to keep you for margin. Nothing personal, just think from that perspective

I've never heard of negotiating a salary increase to work on a crummy project.

It depends. If the partner can make a sway on your pay, maybe. If the partner is junior, the project is not important, or the partner doesn’t have sway, no.

If the partner doesn’t have any of what D1 wrote above (seniority, impt case, sway), you should definitely push back

I'm interviewing for a project manager position at a place that provides support for a prominent Bay Area tech company. I was approached by a recruiter from Planet Technology. The role is a 6 month contract, with the possibility of extension. What's the minimum hourly wage I'd need to make in order to live comfortably and afford health insurance in San Jose? I'm 30 years old w/out kids. My husband is currently unemployed so this is assuming that I'm supporting us both. Appreciate any advice!

Hi All, Am a developer mainly working with SQL and I want to move to AWS (devops), so I started to learn & practice few tools such as terraform, saltstack, prometheus, etc. But I do not have hands on a live project, any ideas if companies would take in beginners in AWS ? Even though there are cloud projects in my domain it is a bit difficult to get into those projects as my lead & manager give me the standard answer "you're a critical resource for our project" :( Any advice guys ?
