Opinions needed! Been thinking of relocating to Sydney or Vancouver for a change of environment but may be up for promotion at the end of this FY. Wait or stay? currently based in Singapore.

The promotion will help you get something better when you move. I’d wait if you think you have a good shot at it and your job isn’t so excruciating it will affect your mental health.

OP- there’s plenty of opportunities in Brisbane! It’s actually heaps better than syd because Sydney has a larger population competition. More likely to get a position in Brisbane compared to Syd :)

Vancouver is also one of the priciest cities in the world. Although if you’re coming from Singapore you might be alright. It’s very outdoors oriented, so if that’s not your bag, you might not enjoy it. Weather is great, sort of like Seattle but less rain.

Vancouver is very laid back and chill, and good if you enjoy the outdoors. Wouldn’t choose Vancouver if you want a city that’s happening and busy.

Yes, that’s exactly what I’m looking for. A city with some sorta life but also with a lot of nature to offer :)

1) best situation is to move with a job at your new location. Might even get a stipend to help moving costs
2) if #1 is possible, would be great to try to get the promotion to next level of position in your new location

I had my annual review today. The company beat its revenue goal by about 175%, so they rewarded us with 5% raises. They called it a merit raise, but considering it doesn’t even cover inflation, I’d like to ask for more. In the review my boss only had praises about me and my work, but she rated me as “at expectations” for all metrics. How do I ask for more money in this kind of situation?

I’m sure this is not a unique situation, but would love y’all’s advice! I love my current agency and the work is easy and ngl it’s a big name and looks impressive on a resume. But, I’m currently being offered a new job at a small agency and the money is so so good, it would be a 60% raise and a title change. I’m so torn, I don’t want to risk what I currently have, but I’m so tempted… would you leave a good place for a ton of $$?

I freelance PM for a small firm, 2 male owners, all else are ICs. When managing certain campaigns I am the ONLY one from my team doing the bulk of the work. My agency’s profit margins are ridiculous. Example, they’ll charge a small firm $10k for a project that costs them $3k. I, who will have managed the entire project, might pocket up to $1k. The owners, who do nothing, pocket $6k. Yet when I ask for a raise, it’s a big issue. I love the work, but I am clearly underpaid and valued. Need advise!

Hey everyone. I found out we are expecting our first child and I’m really nervous. I got into consulting one year ago and I’m up for promotion this year. With timing of our performance conversations I would have to inform I’m pregnant before outcomes - then shortly after the promotion effective date I would go on a leave for due date. I’ve worked really hard and I’m worried our wonderful news will throw chances with this :(- also if I don’t get promoted pretty sure it’s up or out. Any advice?

I need some advice. I have been sitting at a computer all day, but only getting 8 hours or so a day, when I'm usually a top performer.

Started an in-house job after leaving a firm. I love it. Looking back on my old job, I now realize how gaslighted and manipulated I was. People at the new job treat me with such respect, it feels amazing (also sad that my bar is now so low).
