How long should I stay at an “A-list” agency if I haven’t made anything worthwhile? It’s not for a lack of work ethic but a lack of luck with everything getting killed by client.
Joined consulting to get varied experience, but I keep getting extended at client but on different projects. Client is great and projects are cool, but I’d never wanna live on this coast—
Salary negotiation Applied to a job, agreed a salary expectation of £125k to £135k. Discussed range as achievable on two separate occasions. 3 interview rounds later, offer of £106k. Strong pushback from me on the call and a follow up note. Awaiting a revised offer. Any thoughts on that strong a lowball opening offer? I am both irritated and intrigued.
I’m not currently looking for a change (I left for industry in 2020 and really like my job). When recruiters message me on LinkedIn I reply to them because you never know when I’ll be open in the future and I don’t want to burn bridges. This one recruiter messaged me about 6 weeks ago for an assistant controller position and I replied back saying I’m currently happy with my job and am a VP of Accounting so wouldn’t be interested in an assistant controller role. He has reached out every 2 weeks

Newb Question: Starting the search so going in blind. What roles do you apply for in an house position? I'm an M&A associate, but I look at these in house roles and have no idea what are the types I would be considered for: regulatory? product counsel? compliance? The only one for sure I know I'd get a look is securities counsel...what did others apply to? What doe these other roles do? And are the year ranges hard cut offs? Does 5 years mean 5 years or will the company consider 3-4?
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
Is it just in my experience or are recruiters/hiring managers really reluctant these days to discuss salary bands for a given role? My logic for asking is to determine if I should consider a given role or pass if doesn't meet my salary requirements rather than continue additional interviews and find out later. Thoughts?

I have a zoom acting class in which it is mandatory to keep video on which will be recorded for marketing purposes.

Hi Guys, While I joined Mindtree before 3 months, recruiter said I will be getting joining bonus after 3 months of joining. But it was not mentioned in the offer letter, as well as I was not aware that joining bonus will be mentioned in offer letter as this is my 1st jump in IT field. Now the recruiter left organization and my HR is telling they cannot accommodate request as it is not mentioned in offer letter. How should I escalate this to the recruiter's manager to get a positive reply?
So I got offers at both a FAANG company (can't disclose yet) and Airbnb. The FAANG company offered higher total comp but I am thinking Airbnb stock options may be worth more in the long run. Any thoughts?
