Here’s a brilliant idea…work well for one company and get promoted. *GASP* that will get you more money in the long run. And just quit the other job that’s not working for you.

How is this related to my question at all? It seems like you're simply bitter and taking it out here while making the biggest of jumps to wild conclusions. It's not about the money, I do work well, and I don't work two jobs. Anything else you want to assume?

You’re opening yourself up to immediate termination and even potential litigation against you if they found out. Pretty sure your employee handbook explicitly bars you from employment elsewhere

It doesn't explicitly, no. Thank you for the legitimate answer. What litigations?

As mentioned above, working for two firms simultaneously is barred as per employer policy. Even if you’re talking about two smaller firms, most states have a duty of loyalty clause that prevents this. I know of a similar situation and when both employers found out — as they inevitably do — this guy was fired from both jobs. Pretty stupid move.

likehelpful

Information like the duty of loyalty is exactly what I was looking for, so thank you.

Look at the employment agreement - a lot of jobs will only allow you to have one job or it’s a violation of the contract. I would assume they could probably sue you. What if you do the taxes for two competing companies and you see confidential information? There is a reason why when people quit firms and go to another one they tend to walk you out the door that day. Also I don’t even see how it would be humanly possible.

like

No NDAs. And that is a good point. Thank you

I think the only way you could is fraud. Defraud one of them and just keep making excuses until they fire you. Could still take a good few months

Thank you!

Thank you to STM1, D1, and TM1 for legitimate answers. I'm well aware it's not a great idea, but I have realistic reasons to possibly do this, so I appreciate the straight forward explanations of the downsides, as I directly requested, it has helped me determine what I should do. The rest of you are overly emotional assholes who can't read the prompt 😊.

And EY1 :).

So the Design Lead on my team just left the company, and I have been offered her job. The thing is that it's been about a week and a half since this happened and there has not been any official documentation on role change or compensation. I'm wondering if this is normal? Do you usually get a new offer letter or something? Because it makes no sense for me to take on more responsibility above my pay grade without a new title and a significant pay bump. Any advice on what I should do?

Hi everyone, New to fishbowl <3, early in my career as a product designer and Latina woman in Tech 💪🏽 I just landed a new contract role and wanted to share my salary experience. I was offered a role at $50 / hour and countered for $55/hour. They came back with $57. $7 jump just like that. In my heart I wanted to counter with $60 per the 21 cents rule. I think I left money on the table 😪 But hey, I’m grateful for the work. I want to share because transparency helps us all 💪🏽💪🏽

Have seen comp for NACR (restructuring) listed at around 150-200 for analysts, 200-275 for associates, and one mention of senior associates at 375k. Supposedly NACR gets crushed in terms of hours. But i've also read that targets are around 2000 hours per year? Something doesn't add up.....e.g. Associate $550/hr * 25% cap rate * 2000 billable hrs = $275k.......but 2000 hours is slightly over 40 hours a week (including 4 weeks vacay), not the 80 hr/week. So is there a ton of time on vacation?
