Am I being shafted?
at 15:48 18 Dec 2019

Need some views on salary as I can’t tell if I’m being shafted or just ungrateful.
I joined a company as a graduate in September last year on the then grad salary of £28k. This was bumped up to £31k in July this year in line with this years starting graduate salary. I’ve since been told by some that this years starting grad salary is actually £32k.

Anyway, in the 15 months I’ve been at the company, I was promoted within 9 months, have received an exceeding expectations performance rating and have been trusted with high level tasks for senior clients, usually something my director would do. Our salary is reviewed at the end of every year and mine has now been raised to £32.5k.

I live and work in the most expensive area in the country outside London and to me this feels like a bit of a p1sstake. Is it?

(For context, the company turns over $10billion a year so it’s not a small business)

Moving season ticket
at 17:59 5 Sep 2019

I’m sure it’s been asked on here before but has anyone moved their ST for one game before? I want to buy an extra ticket for the Tranmere game but there aren’t many seats around me.

FA should follow Spain’s lead
at 15:46 28 Jul 2019

RFEF is attempting to ditch the stupid idea of Monday and Friday games. Would be nice to see the FA stand up to the Premier League and Sky in the same way.

An observation
at 17:28 12 May 2019

Anyone else find it a bit odd that people are always saying how sky has ruined football, how money has ruined football, how it was better before 1992 etc but want City to win the league? A team that is the literal embodiment of global money buying success. Sure Liverpool have spent vast sums too but a lot of the opposition to them seems to be based on things that happened decades ago.

How soon is too soon to quit a new job?
at 17:59 18 Sep 2018

I started a week ago and I hate it. It’s more or less in the subject area I did my degrees in and to the outsider sounds like a really cool job. The money is good and it can lead me on a path to some seriously decent salaries.

The problem is I don’t enjoy any aspect of it. I did a temporary job for 9 months to bridge the gap between finishing my degree and starting my grad job and I loved that and they asked me to stay there. I’d never command big salaries in that job and part of me would feel I’m wasting my potential if I went back to it but I really did like working there

I’ve moved across the country for this job and away from all my friends and family and I don’t know what to do, I certainly can’t face this for the next 40/45 years..

Referee either lacking chromosomes or has been paid by Villa (it’s not libel if it’s true), against a team of expensive, overrated failures, that was a brilliant defensive performance. Grealish isn’t worth £35m, massively overrated Ronaldo wannabe.

when the cretin in the Britannia stand had his first whinge. This time it was about keeping the ball on the floor. This is the same cretin that had words with Chambers a while back, you have to wonder why he bothers renewing if it irks him so much.

Awesome, brilliant. More jobs for British people and all that.

Sunshine, good atmosphere and some decent football at times. I'm sad/annoyed Mick didn't leave 2 years ago when I wanted him to as I'm having to give up my ST due to moving away and now, unlike the last few years, I really want to renew it.

It seems like this is the closest to proper Neapolitan pizza that I'm going to get in Ipswich. Will it survive an 11 minute drive home without going cold?

and I have no time or respect for racist filth, but why are people calling on the leader to quit because of something his girlfriend has said?

I wouldn't expect to lose my job because of something my mum said.

Edit: I suppose it's about bad publicity but it is UKIP after all

Sears and Iorfa

Sears and bloody Iorfa. Starting the game with 9 men it's almost a surprise we managed to get a point even against a run of the mill team like QPR.

Waiting until the 85th minute to make a positive change is lunacy. Unsurprising that we came closest to scoring after that.
