I’ve been submitting applications because my company has been doing layoffs and pay cuts. I was informed yesterday that they will be doing additional pay cuts starting next week. First my bonus was cut by 60% and now they have mentioned they are going to cancel it altogether. When interviewing for new positions how should I explain why I’m looking for a new job even though I still (at least currently) have a job, just major pay cuts?

I’d just say your exploring new options to see what else is out there, you want more of a challenge/flexibility/etc.

I’m so sorry this is happening to you.
Get out now!
Start asking everyone you know who’s hiring it’s crazy bonkers out there with a hiring frenzy - and when you start negotiating pay, remember that 60% you lost and how slow companies are to give raises, shoot for the moon!

Hi
Today I received a call from the Accenture recruiter who had discussed my HR round and my profile was put on hold. She told me that at level 10 the maximum fixed salary can be 11.10 LPA and rest variable.
11.10 is fine or can they increase upto 13 LPA?
I told her to proceed my profile although I am having offers from other organisation like PWC with 14 fixed, but I beleive Accenture is better in terms of work life balance and onsite opportunity.

I’ve been through the ringer at this place/boss. Am I making a mistake for leaving without another job?

Would it be dumb to switch companies for at least a few years primarily to receive maternity benefits? I'd also make significantly more money and likely have more structured growth opportunities. Down side is that I do enjoy the work at my company... I'm just underpaid and they don't really seem to care about the satisfaction of their employees. My current company only has ST disability and not even FMLA.

Hello everyone,

While attending college I decided to work full-time, at the smaller company that I am working for I have worked my way up to being our Director of sale and operations…… earlier this week I sent out my résumé to a couple of companies to see what is out there and now I am interviewing for a VP of business development position at a larger company this week. I’m a little overwhelmed to say the least, any advice or resources that would help me prepare it would be great!
