Unfortunately we would need specifics if we wanted to provide assistance, there are a lot of variables here, all depends on role, team, bank, financial firm to help I.e. in some banks in some roles you need approval for outside ventures and provide annual reports and information on suppliers etc. without relevant information unable to assist

Honestly like, there are *so* many variables and considerations here. Hard to provide thoughts without more detail.

Hi Guys, need some suggestions.
Azure Data enginner, 7.7 yoe.
I got a offer from HCL for 22LPA.
Initially they said I am eligible for E2 band Lead position but in offer they have given E3 band technical specialist.

I felt for my experience E2 is perfect.
So if I join in E3 will there be more responsibility and work compared to E2?
And should I ask the HR to change it back to E2 ?

I came into a hedge fund job as an analyst in February of this year and didn’t negotiate my bonus at the outset. I was coming from tech and needed a green card so didn’t have much room to do so.

With bonus season coming up, I have a feeling my PM is going to underpay me. Should I bring up the subject myself? Also, how do I get a sense of what I’m worth? I did not trade but was the main data guy and built a tool that is indispensable for our process. Is 10% of his cut of PnL reasonable?

Hi all, I have been in Investor Relations at a large hedge fund company at my current job for 9 years. Started as an assistant then worked my way to associate and then manager for the last 3 years. After 9 years my salary just hit 85k. I found out recently new hires with no/little experience and lower positions are making more then me for salary. I asked my boss and he said that he makes up for it in my bonus but bonuses are not 100% and depend on the market. Does this sound reasonable?
