Is the cycle after a promotion the easiest review cycle or the hardest? Got promoted in December and I feel like I'm going to screw it up...
Raise the bar!
Was upset with raise. Just got a text from mom. Dad is in the hospital. Called. She says he's fine. Can't believe I was bummed about my raise. As if slightly more money matters.
How long is too long to approve a promotion? I ve been promised a promo for months. some Internal movements happened and still no promo, should I keep asking or just let it die?
Confirmed! Promotion from Specialist to Manager. Any thoughts on what to expect for raise?
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..

Does having a “veteran” designator play any part in the promotion advancement or internal growth? Haven’t seen a lot of ex-military in the firms.
Someone want to explain how everyone in consulting can be this duped... we accept promotions for more responsibilities without knowledge of compensation... that literally doesn’t happen anywhere else. How dumb are we? Ps. I don’t count myself, I’ve never taken a promotion without jumping firms :) though plan on doing it next year - as SM
Fellow Fishes, how much hike is expected solely for the promotion from senior associate to manager? YOE -13, Tech - SQL Dev Slightly urgent... TIA
Started working for an agency during the pandemic and found out that they cut associate salaries for those who started during the pandemic. I’m doing the same amount of work and getting paid less just because I started during the pandemic. Seeing as the agency has won more business and things are pretty much back to normal, would it look bad for me to ask for a raise?
If you get some development points and a partially at level in your third year, are you screwed for promotion?

I left my BigLaw job earlier this year to take some time off and/or retire early. I now have an offer from an old colleague, now at a boutique, to write briefs on a contracting basis. We haven’t discussed pay yet—what would be a reasonable hourly rate to ask for?
3 years ago, I interviewed someone who didn’t get the job. They emailed me weeks after, and asked, “I don’t care if I don’t get the job, I just want to be friends.” I never responded. Still feel bad

Could anyone share some insight on compensation for manager roles in financial reporting and/or technical accounting? Curious to see what people have jumped for when they left PA for these types of jobs.
Hi ladies, Is the 6 month mark too early to ask for a raise? I have been required to over step my job role in almost every capacity. My bosses boss is contacting my personal phone on this weekend as the main point of contact for crisis comms on social media. I am also helping more senior social media members often. I have received 5 pieces of overwhelmingly positive written feedback from colleagues and these will be reviewed at the end of probation talk. I just don't know how to ask. 😔

Anyone here with an interview experience at Amazon? I had the full-day virtual last round last week - the recruiter emailed with a suggested time *2 days from now* to “follow up with me on the results”. Does this mean it’s a no? Is this ridiculous process normal?
