I don’t enjoy that people who aren’t doing too hot get no bonus. At least give them a boost of confidence that things will be better

Even though some job postings include the range, the recruiter still asks me what my desired salary range is? Im totally fine with the salary range posted in the job description - that’s why I applied. Do you guys usually give a higher number or just narrow the range down but stay within the salary range posted with the job description?

My offer letter from HCL has two variable pay components-
1) Performance bonus
2) Engagement PB(paid monthly).
Do I expect the second one to be paid monthly and the first one once a year?
Also they have flex basket and food wallet, are these also paid monthly?

I am working for a CRO in USA and a current base salary of USD 100K. I am moving to Canada this fall and the company approved an internal transfer to the Canada office. However, they offered me CAD 105K (much less than what I currently make). How do I discuss this with HR to see if they would be willing to pay me the same as my USA salary. Any comments or advice?



I have an amazing life and go through swings of huge confidence followed by self loathing

I assure you I'm not humble bragging but on the surface I have an awesome life. I'm 25 with High comp, attractive, good social life, fit, etc. and sometimes it feels like that and my self esteem and confidence are through the roof

But other times it feels like I'm a failure that's not doing enough. I see Forbes 30 under 30 about all these success stories from ppl in their 20s and I feel like crap

Have you been fired before even starting your new job?

I signed for a new job two months ago and will start next month (3 mo notice period in Europe). They were very keen on getting me on-board ASAP before signing but since I signed the contract it has been silent from the new employee. I've emailed them with questions as I'll be re-locating to NL and it takes them 1-2 weeks to reply. Given all that's going on in the world, I'm worried they might fire me before I even start.
