Starting at McK soon. Just heard you can't bring your own device to the cell phone plan. Also heard it's an outdated iPhone. What does this mean for Android users? Does this also mean I'll be lugging 2 phones around?

Yes you'll be like me and lugging an android personal phone that you pay for around and an outdated (iPhone 13 likely) as your work phone that the company pays for.

No you can’t bring your own device.
No I got a new iPhone 13 when I joined.
Yes I carry two phones because I don’t plan on being here long term so want to keep my personal number and privacy on my personal phone.

Hmm mostly I don’t think WhatsApp is allowed but I don’t know for sure.

it's better to have 2 phones so you can separate things. on weekends I turn off my work phone

A HR question I really want to understand. ISRS HR quoted a podcast "The not so great resignation" saying 70% regret leaving and many want to go back to old employer. If this really the case the employee likely left due to higher pay at the new company. If they want to boomerang back they will likely come back at even a higher rate than they left the new company for. So getting double raise when they boomeranged. Isn't it unbeneficial, why not just give employee a 7% raise in the first place?

Yay, pay raise came through .... $96+/- better off each pay check .... that successful FY18 really was a screamer.
