Random. If Biden gets elected, would any of you join the government (appointed or career position)? I ask about this objectively in how every new administration restaffs people and less so about politics.

The actual number of appointed officials has been drastically reduced over the last 20 year. It used to be in the thousands, which is unrealistic given that the president would obviously need a massive team to vet and recommend, and there would be so much knowledge loss every changeover. Because of this, appointed roles are typically more senior level. So to answer your question, I’d really consider taking an appointed position, depending on the department/agency. But just taking a career position? Very unlikely.

If they tripled the salary I’d consider it.

I’d def take an appointed position. Those mean I know the VP or paid for it (donated). Working in sr govt roles can be rewarding and great way to get connections. I hope I’d see it as a give back bc USA

💯

Depends on the role. It would need to make sense as part of my overall career story and be interesting and rewarding. Similar criteria to any job consideration.

Isn’t federal salary capped at 200?

Good point C1, well taken

Hey all,
I'm currently in the negotiation stage for an engineering position with a new company.

Original offer:
83000/yr salary

Counter:
93500/yr salary w/ 10k sign-on

Response:
84800/yr with 10k sign-on

My go/no go mental number:
88500/yr with 7.5k signon

Based on my conversation with HR, I've maxed out the base pay number. Does it sound reasonable to come back with 84800/yr with 12.5k sign-on since they weren't close to the base pay number I was looking for?

They’re both finance positions with 2 YOE.

Manager at Slalom. I've received an offer from a boutique that specializes in D&A work and does more ML work as well.

I generally like Slalom but feel like a lot of the technical work I do in my market isn't super interesting. There are growth opportunities here but not sure if it keeps good exit options open later.
