Ask for $130K. I know an ex-colleague who left our firm and did a lateral move to Manager level and got $130K. My first Manager gig I was at mid 90's but that was a few years ago. The market is rapidly changing and the COL is increasing everywhere. So companies either got fork up the money to get the talent or lag behind other companies.

Sound decent to ne

Sounds reasonable

Pinned for my future reference

That sounds like a fair offer to me.

Hi All,
I have cleared all 3-4 round of interviews in Apisero by 26 Dec. HR also taken all the documents like salary slips etc.

She said offer may take some time due to new year holidays. Now they are saying they have freezed all the new offers.

Is this correct? Apisero is not rolling out any new offers?

The interview process take weeks of time and multiple rounds. So just wanted to know what is the point of all these rounds.

Any folks under the Publicis umbrella get that Bonus of an extra week pay Arthur talked about months ago? I work for a small sub under the Publicis umbrella, and leadership has been avoidant after initially saying likely in May. Wondering if anyone else already received and we’re just not eligible. Thanks!

Hey everyone,
Need advice on where to live for a mid 20s couple moving to Colorado from dc area, specifically in the Denver area (although my team is fully remote, so the occasionally office visit isn’t a concern). We like to: ski/snowboard, hike and explore, travel, occasionally go out to cool restaurants.
1. Colorado Springs: visited multiple times. Loved it, inexpensive.
2. Somewhere in Denver? Still less $ than DC area.
3. Suggestions? Thanks!

I just ordered my first Chanel! I never got myself a milestone gift before, but I just found out I passed my fourth and final section of the CPA exam, exactly one month before my 30th birthday.

I hadn't decided on a Chanel until I absolutely fell in love with the quilted Trendy CC. I'm ecstatic!
