I’ve never ever read a “Morning Stir” or “Odds and Ends” on AgencySpy.

(I’m sorry if your work or promotion was in one. 😕)

It’s very sad now. AgencySpy is a sad sad place.
So much fun we had on there. Also, the time when AOTW wasn’t just kleenex posting, there was some real conversation on there.

So I recently found out that my current company is underpaying me. And by that I mean that literally any other company is willing to pay me 15-20k more than what I make now. In my current role they've asked me to take on extra responsibilities with no financial compensation (scrum master type stuff) while still doing my engineering stuff. I don't necessarily mind it, but I'm starting to feel like I'm being taken advantage of. Is it reasonable for me to ask for a raise? Or do I go somewhere else?

Tired of client work? Come join our internal Innovation and Tech group @ PwC! We've got positions open for associate-manager in the Data Analytics team for Risk Assurance where you're not expected to have clients, it's fully remote, but are still aligned to the practice, so compensation and promotion timing are equivalent to those with clients. Will split referral bonus 60(you)/40 - up to 10k for a sr. Assoc. DM me if interested!

How do you make sure you find an industry job that comes with the raise you want (within reason) without having to work more than 45 hours a week? One of my clients emails me at 10pm somewhat regularly. Another never leaves/logs off before 9pm for 5 weeks between quarter end and release of the 10-Q. I’d rather stay at B4 with our 6 weeks of time off per year (PTO + summer and winter breaks) rather than go to an industry job with regular long hours and half the PTO. Thoughts?

1) As someone trying to get fast tracked for promotion IA, should I push to get on a project during Ramadan OR spend my time on firm building in Ramadan and try to get staffed afterwards? Would prefer the second option so long as it doesn’t impact promotion.

2) if the reco is to max utilization and be staffed during Ramadan, any advice for balancing fasting + long working hours?

More a personal finance question than an investment question. A family member is having health issues that I’m having to deal with. Long story short the only means I have available is a 401k loan. I’ve factored in pros and cons of this. Only question is what information will my employer have if I take this loan? Can they use it for denying me a promotion for eg? Arguing that I’m not financially responsible. I don’t think so but curious to hear if anyone had this happen to them?

Annual Raise coming up:

Current salary is X where X = $75k + an annual bonus that only applies if the company does well that year

Desired salary is Y where Y = a range from 80 - 89.999

Problem is I've been told that salary typically only gets raised 3% each year, without deviation.

To reach Y, I would need at least a 0.0667% increase or so.
