Joined a company, got taken over, and have been doing the work of the old senior. Boss' boss wants to pay me 15% more, my boss and I are aiming for 35% more. I was very underpaid when I took the job.
Career change? No. I am happy in my career for the most part. If I HAD to change a career, likely go into sales
Employer change? Absolutely if my employer doesn't follow through on promotion & raise. I am 35% underpaid compared to colleagues & market. Hell, I could take a gig for 15-20% more and cut my commute time in half. Thing is, it's hard to laterally change positions when you're relatively new at it.
New certification, license, or skills upgrade? Boss was able to get some training $ approved in budget. I'll likely take some of that and do some manager/leadership type courses. Nice boost to my CPA PD hours...
Status quo? Never. I work in the resource industry and things can and often change on a dime in that world.

Hah, no but here's a good story... I was interviewing there and was one of the final two candidates with a good friend. He ended up getting that particular role and I ended up at rbc. Unfortunately, he ended up getting canned this year so I really lucked out.

Lucky! RBC is the only one of the big 5 that continued to do well in earnings this year. BMO with the large restructuring and CIBC with the bad results.

Rbc had a terrible year in my division (by its standards) but I will say this - RBC is highly protective of its juniors in terms of pay / job security, at least in Canada. I have never heard of a single junior being laid off and that's not something I could say about any other big 5. Can wholeheartedly say I think very highly of the company in this regard and I do consider myself lucky to work there.

Yeah, I read all the earnings reports and RBC did bad on the investment banking side but the rest of the bank did well and balances that out.angrybanker wrote: ↑ Rbc had a terrible year in my division (by its standards) but I will say this - RBC is highly protective of its juniors in terms of pay / job security, at least in Canada.

They have that every year despite of how they do. Their stock was down 5% after earnings. The bank still made money but it didn’t meet analyst expectations.
