Experienced level interviews are quite free-flowing. You can discuss things like your childhood growing up, or where you went on your honeymoon.

As I said, this is part of my job. If someone on my team comes into my office and says they want a 30% raise because they're so awesome, it's a bit presumptuous. If they come in and instead say they feel limited in their role and would like to a way to take on more responsibility, prove their worth, etc. then it's an entirely different conversation.

Everything about this topic is pretty situational, but salary negotiations are a part of your job any way you cut it. You want them to be one directional, and they just aren't.

It is pretty horrifying tbph. The US Actuarial world seems to be filled with some pretty average people.

Sure. But now I am not wasting any time.

Putting pedal to the metal. GTFO my way or I will steamroll over you.

Makes things a lot simpler, as well as massively focusing my efforts.
