Went through multiple interviews that were set up by this recruiter. I told him my expected base from the beginning. Today he called me to let me know that the company could not meet my compensation..

Then he told me that setting my compensation as a priority was a red flag. In what world is money a red flag? Sorry not sorry that I have to create a living for myself. Like who the hell goes to work not thinking about money?!

If your expectations are reasonable (don’t know what I don’t know but generally for lateral roles all things equal I’d expect around 20-30%), then they’re trying to bully you into this because they won’t get anything if they don’t close the deal and I’m guessing they either didn’t believe the range or didn’t know it; either way this translates into them not doing their job. Find a new recruiter. I’d tell him we discussed the expectations for this role, including my comp. you didn’t raise any concerns. I’ve had no other indication that anything has changed until now, so I’m not sure why this is a surprise to you. Good luck with the job search!

Thank you! Yes it was lateral and I gave them a 15% bump from where I am today. Just felt offended when he remarked that my compensation requirement is a red flag.

No. That’s crap. Every guy going in there makes his compensation demands. It’s only aggressive and unsightly when women do it.

Can’t get over depression around one mistake. I don’t want to get too specific but it was financial related and involved missing out on a massive amount of money. I didn’t hurt anyone and i also got happily married and got a puppy this year. I’ve had a rough year at work (largely because of depression) but they stuck by me and now I’m on a great role with a team i love. Also lots of interviews. And yet, i can’t get over this one thing and “what could have been.” hate how ungrateful I’m being.
