Compensation

Would a hiring manager put additional limits on salary negotiations generally, or do they just give the go/no-go decision and HR handles the back and forth of where you fall within pay bands?

For example, if the job could pay 145-165, could you manager cap your offer at 145?

I think it depends on the firm. I know my hiring manager brought me in higher on my pay band because I had significantly more expertise than the average person at that level.

Does anyone have advice - ideally from experience - on how to feel when you’re told many times during a long job search that you’d be great, you have all the skills, but they are “looking for a diversity hire.” I support this. My fear of not being able to support my family is where I get lost. BIPOC deserve and should have these opportunities. My white, wealthy, employed friends tell me it’s the cost white ppl have to bear for equity. But they aren’t bearing it, I am. I do not know how to feel.

Looking to travel to Lisbon and Greece this July for my honeymoon(we’ve delayed it due to Covid). They’re currently the only two open European countries that makes sense for this sort of trip, but curious if this crowd has any recommendations. My flights are taken care of, but also curious if there are any Bonvoy or Chase point hacks/deals that make sense for these countries.
