Yes, the salary jump is clearly worth it. Although you will pay more taxes, the $45k salary increase is a much larger amount than the previous 401k match. I strongly recommend that you do not try to negotiate a retirement plan. It is a big ask and it is very unlikely that the non-profit would do it for you. The non-profit doesn't have any retirement plan ...

It's unclear from your question as to whether you are asking about terms of service in the US, or asking about terms of service in the UK (using the US as a parallel example) When do you negotiate for this? In either case you negotiate for it when you join the company. Theoretically you could negotiate for it any time the terms of your service up being ...

Get a contract. You should not have started anything, much less delivered anything, without a contract. You are seeing the downsides of this right now. Make it clear to your customer that you have fulfilled the agreement for the work he asked you to do, and that any further changes will require further payment. Send an invoice for the amount you were ...

It's incredibly worth it for a further overwhelming reason: Your "headline salary" is what advances your salary. A couple years from now you'll be trying to move ahead to a new salary bracket.

Here are some factors to account for: Negotiating with the new employer for a "real" retirement plan is unlikely to succeed since such a small organization would face a large administrative overhead to offer it. This is what the California 2022 requirement is dealing with -- it can be met by an employer signing up for CalSavers, a state-...

A contract agreed verbally or over email is valid, even if it isn't signed. The later matter of unresolved negotiations are just that, unresolved and legally meaningless. It sounds like you haven't sent your customer an invoice for services rendered. If you don't want to negotiate endlessly, draft an invoice (based on your agreed contract and any agreed ...

62.5% increase in salary vs 3% decrease in 401k... Brother, sounds like you need to start doing for yourself on that one. Congratulations. (To clarify: if you were to hypothetically "match" your OWN contributions up to 3%, are you still net positive with the greater salary * ? Then your question answers itself! :) If it's IT/IS ...
