    Congrats!

    i was in a bind yesterday over an internal manager offer I was making yesterday.

    market is crazy high, so hiring someone already here is cheaper than off the street. But our salaries are so far below market averages now- do I allow the requested 20% bump for a lateral move or do the traditional 10%? Creating inequalities on the team sucks, but I’d rather this person get a bigger bump now and not leave us in a month.
    Thanks!

    This is something everyone needs to work on and normalize. To me, the right thing to do is pay the person their value.


    Also, I agree that internal promotions are usually cheaper than external hires. I've been saying for...ever... that it's far cheaper to just pay people what they ask for than to have them leave and try to fill the position. It's also better in every other conceivable way, but in terms of straight dollars and cents (and sense?), it's still better.

    My boss lets us know and also gives us the on call supervisor for the time she's out.

    I barely tell anyone unless it will directly affect a project.

    Not a dig at all. Just pragmatic--and probably insensitive.

    No idea. It matters because we all are supposed to provide when we're going to be out. We've had three 1:1 conversations this week, you think it might have come up.

    Seems like that could have been better communicated...

    That makes 2 of us on the same day. Last e-mail sent on Friday @ 4:58. Original plan was end of March, but I stayed 1 additional month out of the goodness of my heart. There no truth to the rumor that Friday's plunge in the stock market is in any way related to our retirement news.
    Awesome! A guy on another board retired on Friday, too.

    Then again, my company also forced a bunch of people to retire Friday, as well...

    Well, it's official. I'm retired.

    And I'm quite happy. Especially in the context of so many friends who also retired today, but didn't want to.
