Whenever I hear a company talk about “family” culture, I know they’ll be using it as an excuse to try and underpay me.

Companies always say “we’re family” but once you start calling your CD “daddy/mommy” all of a sudden it’s an HR violation.

funny

Umm mommy, sorry, um mommy, sorry…

Yeah. It's a definite red flag. I don't need pats on the head. I need cash.

I can see why you'd think that. I've worked at two companies who put a lot of emphasis in their culture and one of them was notorious for low salaries (they ran on a HPLE model). But, the other paid market level salaries and good bonuses, so I don't think it is universally true.

Life is about tradeoffs. There are actually jobs out there that have good cultures. I tend to be on the more cynical side myself, but you'll have to ask yourself what are your priorities. Lots of options out there.

I'm not saying they are "family". Most places aren't and say they are. There are great employers out there.

I’m looking to change companies right now, mainly for more interesting product work and $$$ that will come with it. But it’s going to be hard to replace the culture at my current company.

Really? When I hear that I think better WLB and bennies. True in my company anyways

Also, what are some exit opportunities I can expect later down the road?

I just received an offer within the industry and I'm excited to join. That said, they have come in at the bottom of my range (I said $320k when I started talking with them in December, and upgraded that to $350k based on market movements since then) I'm particularly bothered by the clawback on my bonus payments until my LTIP kicks in. Below I'm attaching my redacted offer letter and draft response. Looking for feedback on my response (whether reasonable, any improvements). Thanks.

My first experience at Deloitte was that staffers were a last resort. It was an explicit expectation that you should develop internal networks to get staffed. This was mid 2010s At my current firm (ZS) the reliance on staffers is being pushed more and more, with staffers pushing back when we identify our own resources. I think personal responsibility is both more efficient for all parties and builds skills. But perhaps I am biased from time at D. What’s the situation at your firm re: staffers?
