Too late to negotiate?

I was offered a new job, but I'm not sure if I can negotiate a better salary at this point. Don't want to upset the apple cart, but don't want to get short-shrifted either. Advice? [more inside]

Salary is based on degree status. What do you currently make?

How much job-hopping is too much?

Husband, let’s call him J, has had a good interview at another company in town that he’d like to work for, and is going in for a second interview. He feels confident that they want to hire him. The concern is how hopping jobs in a short time will affect his resume and future prospects if it’s a clear pattern. Is this too much job hopping? [more inside]

Give this job/boss a mulligan and review in three months?

So I took a job to change my life and industry back in January. There were extended negotiations and a massive interview process and even a couple of test (take home) that pretty much doubled as free work. In person, there was a lot of body language and communication I didn't get but I finally have now. The worst of it is, we're at the point where I said we'd renegotiate or I'd leave and now I find out it's all been blown to hell. [more inside]

Broke Girl. Big Raise. What do?

Hi. I'm a late-twenties woman who, due to some combination of fluke and skill (I guess), ended up in a high-paying (to me, anyway) low six-figures job without a graduate degree. I grew up in a single parent family, broke as a joke, and managed to get into a top college on a scholarship; perhaps needless to say, I have NO idea how to handle this influx of money. [more inside]

Why do physicians in New Hampshire make more than in its neighbors?

Looking at this recent report, New Hampshire ranks second-highest for physician salary. Yet other Northeastern/New England states dominate the lowest-salary states. Certainly New Hampshire is more rural overall than, say, Rhode Island, but compared to "low-salary" Vermont?

Average % raise with promotion?

I was promoted at work, but the raise accompanying it was only 5%, which seems low to me. I'm trying to figure out if my expectations are out of line, so I'm curious what % increases others have personally received (or given out) when getting promoted in your company, as well as what general field you work in for context. I'm also interested in strategies for going back to press for more in a pretty corporate environment, or if I should even bother trying?

How to negotiate terms and salary for an editor-in-chief position?

For most of my adult working life, I've been a freelance writer and editor. The economic downturn hit me really hard, and I spent 4-5 years with the majority of my income coming from low-paying jobs outside my field, and I struggled financially. This has caused me some feelings of shame that I'm not "adulting right," and impostor syndrome. But I've been offered a great opportunity. I want to play my cards right. [more inside]

I mean I'm not saying no, but...

Okay, hiring managers and HR folks of AskMe. Suppose your company has a job opening, and you've interviewed a candidate. Things went pretty well, and you want to make that candidate an offer. You have your recruiter call and ask him for his salary requirements, and he gives you a number. What are some reasons why you might then come back and make an offer that is $10,000 more than what he was asking for?

Business math word problem: calculating salary through "growth tiers"

I'd like some help coming up with a formula for calculating annual salary increases. The idea is that a given job description will have two "growth tiers", through which an employee's salary will increase at different rates, and beyond which their salary cannot increase further (except for cost-of-living adjustment). There's also a "base growth factor", which is determined by individual employee performance--e.g. 10% for a stellar employee, 6% for a good employee, etc. Lots more inside. [more inside]
