Recently promoted and the pay increase was 10%. I'm in a more senior position, so the actual dollar amount is more, but I was expecting between 15-20%. Thoughts?

Companies always pay new talent more than promoted talent. Heartbreaking but true. Do your research on Glassdoor, the various salary surveys and friends in the industry (including men), and go in with a counteroffer for a fair market salary for that role. But be prepared to walk if they won’t meet it, as many wont. It’s a big reason why folks jump around so much.

👆truth, which is one of the reasons for job hopping in our industry

Hmm, that does sound a little short of expectations. In your previous position, were you at the upper pay band? If not, might be worth trying to negotiate your offer

yes, I was on the higher end of my previous position. now just under the lower end of new position based on glassdoor

Many people get the title and responsibility and no pay. Promised Bonuses which rarely come. And if they do an disappoint. Depending on your base and Unless you were made president or CEO. Seems reasonable.

Hello industry folks, really need your career advice - YOE 4.5, CTC - 6.4 LPA, ICICI Recently transitioned from an operations role to Product Manager role.

Now, as I transitioned to PM role, there are tons of opportunities to learn and grow, however, CTC and hikes are meagre. Whereas, with the new opportunity, CTC is good, but cant figure out what career would be in Infosys and after.

Opinions Wanted My Dad passed away recently and my Mom finally heard back on the value of his Deloitte pension. Around 350k.

Between 25-50k for each of us. Would you take the money?

My school has decided to bring all students back and put them all in the classroom. I have 29 students with the potential of 32. I don’t feel comfortable with this. We are supposed to try to keep 6 ft between isles, but in the row of students they are desk to desk. So shoulder to shoulder 6ft or less. Face to face is about 2ft, and some are much closer....... does anyone else have this going on at their school?
