Hi Fishes, Pls help,
YOE: 13 yrs
Cctc: 13 lpa
Have cleared HCL interview. Initially they offered 23 lpa (via proposed offer letter), but i requested to reconsider it for 25 lpa.
After 5 days, they sent final offer letter of 19 lpa (stating they can offer max 50% as per L4 approval).
1. Is this normal or rare case, reducing the offer amount from what quoted initially?
2. Should I accept or negotiate?
I don't have any other offer as of now.

Hello Senior Fishes!! I am a campus recruit and I'm gonna join Deloitte USI possibly by July 2022. Deloitte USI hired me on campus in Sept 2021 when there were only 4 offices on paper and took our location preference. Now since 3 new locations have been added, is it possible for me to request the HR for Chennai location after receiving the offer letter? I live in Chennai and so what would be the odds of them accepting my request before joining ?
Any input or advice will help :)

My manager consistently makes condescending remarks about my work even though I’m overworked and prioritize what is urgent. I regularly work 12-13+ hours a day but never receive any confirmation or recognition that I’m doing a good job and there is always something to criticise.
How should I approach speaking to my manager about this toxic environment?

Hey all, what’s your opinion on providing 2 Week notice? Do you think it’s still standard or depends on the situation.
I recently received my start date for a new job, and am happy to be leaving my current situation- it is a very hostile environment. I’m debating whether to give a week or two week notice.
Anyone else feel like they’re not right for the corporate world? It’s not my personality to let my manager know of everything I’m working on - I’m heads down and I get the job done and only bring him in if I need help. However, I’m now learning that this is hurting me because my more vocal colleagues are being recognized for tasks I already do. I just hate these corporate games. Why isn’t it enough to just do the work well?
Has being more assertive ever backfired on you? I'm naturally more reserved and am trying to work on this without coming across as a bitch. Any tips?
I quit my job at a bank call center (MF dealer) didn’t give out a 2 weeks. I’m finishing up my licenses and school starts in 2 weeks. I’m 22 with 3 years of banking experience, 1.5 years of investment associate experience. Do you think that leaving without giving a notice will follow me in the future? It’s a call center, and I was not able to control my schedule so we always got it 2-3 weeks in advance but couldn’t plan ahead. Will school/scheduling be a good excuse if my next employer asks?
Would you say this was unprofessional, or would you have done the same? I was called out to present on a call mon night on which I got humiliated with questions: such as why are you telling us this, what even is this that you are sharing, kept getting cut off to explain myself. I was of course the only woman in the meeting. I literally cried after that’s how awful I felt. So today, similar call was scheduled, I just rejected, said I had something urgent come up and didn’t go.
Hi fishies! I work for an early-stage Fintech startup called Fennel; (www.fennel.com) focused on impact investing as well as shareholder activism and giving every day investors the tools they need to make informed and aligned decisions. I'm wondering what others in the industry think of this space and about ESG, given that there has been a lot of relevant media attention recently & would love to know if people make investment decisions based on factors like workforce equity, ceo pay, etc?

Did anyone see the post in the Work-Life bowl posted by the analyst? Saying that he(26M) was scared to be judged at corporate events for his gfs(19F!!!) hair color & tattoos? If you didn’t, please check out the comments. And then remember that these are men in the financial industry, that could very well be your coworkers. The grooming. The objectification. I am disgusted, but not surprised.

Hi folks! What’s the best way to do a #resignation around the holidays, AND when you can’t do the standard two weeks because the start date is close to the end of the two-week mark. (I would like a few days to myself and my mental peace.) there aren’t that many females in my firm.
Feel free to DM if you’d like to share your input 🙂
My company will be doing holiday party this year! It’s been three years since I went to a legit holiday party 🤣 I have been spoiled by past parties at the wardolf Astoria or tavern on the green and my last employer had really bad parties - think crappy dinner at a chain restaurant or white elephant exchange in the office. I am not making sense …
so I just had my quarterly feedback meeting w my boss and my negative feedback was that I never turn my camera on so it comes across like I’m unprepared.... it was partially due to circumstance but also in part because I’m insecure about being seen as less than without makeup and professional clothes..thoughts?
