I think so. We are also a lot quicker to jump ship when it comes to jobs and my parents worked a much more difficult job than me. I feel like our generation just isn’t as good at bottling things up and putting up with crap?

Agreed!

Glory to God. After a long battle of advocating for my own career advancement while being under a team who intentionally did not support my advancement/career growth, I finally***** got promoted. With a 10% raise. It was a battle but I stayed faithful to Gods word and sought the kingdom first. Again. ALL. Glory. To. God. 🙌🏽🙌🏽 1 Peter 5:6 God will exalt you in due time if you humble yourselves under his mighty hand...

I was offered a large raise/promotion at my current company (Series A Funded, been here since seed round). I have the option to do stock or cash or a combo. Anyone have an idea on what to do for something like this? We have good funding and are considered a first mover in our vertical. It's SaaS but we are having issues figuring out our business model and product. We have a lot of F100 customers though. any suggestions?

Switch to another consulting firm for 20-25% raise + bonus but same level (manager) or wait for promotion at EY this year but still less money. Doesn't look like EY will match the competing offer.

Started new job at a non-F500 (CorpDev) this week (got offered +45% over my previous base). Received an offer today from EY, which is +35% over my current base. I kinda like the CorpDev gig more and have very little motivation to join EY (that particular team). Can I still use their offer to pump up my current base here at the non-F500? How can I ask for a raise and not set wrong impression so early on?

Is a 10% raise pretty good when you get promoted?

What would you do ? 26 years old, work 9 to 9, work weekends, take an extra load because you can to get to the next promotion. Or work normal hours, workout, enjoy time with family, advance normally.

After a month of having to constantly ask about my onboarding, I finally was able to join. Now, it's been two weeks and no one seems to know how I get my laptop. With the support number I get an automated response of some mail I should have got which never came. I raise a ticket and they close it saying talk to the manager or onboarding advisor. There is no onboarding advisor and my manager asks me to go back to support. So, did I do something to offend the gods or is this hassle expected?
