Hi ladies - I am in need of some advice please!
Would you take up an offer with a higher title and salary in a new city on a so so brand or stick out your “path to promotion” at your current agency? Was told they would push for my promo to happen in 5 months. Should i bring up this offer to current employer or would that burn bridges?
Don’t think I am ready to move but the title and salary is guaranteed so don’t want to lose out on a golden opportunity ya know?
I am helping my wife negotiate her salary for a promotion with her current company in the Detroit, Michigan area. She is being offered a role as a Senior Financial Analyst with an automotive manufacturer (she has already been with the company for 4 years), and she has 8 years of relevant professional experience and an MBA.
What does everyone think is a fair salary target for her to consider in this market?

I recently asked my boss for a raise after discussing a yearly review with them. I was told because there was a company wide raise back in December, that would technically be my raise, which was $0.45/hr. I’ve stepped in to a number of roles here and feel I am not being paid adequately after taking on the extra work. I’m wondering how to go about asking for a raise of $2/hr after all this.

Staff 4 has been restructured to Senior 1. By that means shouldn’t I have been promoted from staff 4 to senior 2 as I joined at staff 4 in Feb 2020 and my promotion was due?
Even staff 3 peers around me got promoted to senior 1. How is it fair???
Very disappointed . Got a rating of 3 after working my ass off and actually delivering and leading a great project with minimal support.
Though getting a promotion but that’s something everyone gets when due.
They say it’s some trade off … don’t know what to do.

Received an offer for an internal promotion and the verbal offer differed from the written offer. Specifically, the bonus verbalized was 2% higher than the offer letter. HR basically just said ‘sorry, our mistake the letter is right’. What would you do?
Things have been fine at work and I am even expecting to be in line for a promotion this year. Towards the end of the 1-1 with my boss today, I wanted to mention it to him that I will be taking a sick day as I am visiting a gynec. However, I mistakenly said something like “Hey, I just wanted to inform that I am planning to take an interv…. (Paused for a second), and said sorry not an interview, an appointment to meeting with the gynec and will be taking a day off next week”. How screwed am I?

Don’t play that game. If you take the internal counter offer, you have just shown that money is what drives you (whether that is true of you or not). It will paint a perception of you in a way that you can’t easily control. If you were far enough in your thinking to go get an external offer, follow through and move on. It’s a cleaner, more gracious exit
SM1 - Thanks for the response. This is definitely helpful!
I am motivated by money. I will work harder if you pay me more.
Well articulated SM1
Agree with what have already been said. OP you should just move on, and congrats!
Like Han said in Tokyo Drift... “Life’s simple, you make choices and you don’t look back.”
take the counter if money was the only deciding factor..
I had to share my offer letter to formally receive the counter..
Don’t accept the counter. There is a reason you wanted to leave.
What if the reason was more money.
