'recovery by consolidation' #shudder

Not exactly comforting. Frend was a real charismatic leader in the region, the internal press release said the decision was mutual, which did not sound like a friendly discussion. "Dear SapientRazorfish, I'm just not that into you."

There's not going to be enough of a company left to do anything after they finish all these layoffs. So many good people lost already and they still keep going.

@razorfish1, given that the internal notice we got went out on a Friday after "normal business hours", they want to keep this as quiet as possible. Monday will be very, very interesting.

Really, why did it need to say the feeling was mutual? Just extra drama from you know who...

Anyone doing internal product management? I have been hired as a senior product manager by the people tech IT team at a big company. I come from a b2b product owner/business systems analyst background. On one hand, I am excited about the change and a chance to work with the real users of the product but my ex manager implied it might be good to move out soon if I don't want to pursue career in product management. Would love any insights.

Does anyone know what an appropriate percent of a raise to ask for is? I havent gotten an increase in two years since my probation ended and I'm trying to determine a number to ask, but I dont want to aim too high

Info: cost of living has increased 6.6% in that time, and a posting within my company is over 15% higher than my salary for an entry level position. But I've also heard that 8% is the highest you should ask for, so Im not sure
