218: How to Renegotiate with a Bait-and-Switch Employer | Feedback Friday
When a longstanding policy — whether official or not — was a serious tipping point in the decision to accept your current job, are you right to feel like you've gotten the old bait-and-switch treatment when it's axed nine months after you started? If so, how do you engage leadership to renegotiate terms? We'll tackle this and more on this Feedback Friday!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:
- If your not-so-close family members are unapologetically crummy to you and your fiance, is it time to cut them out of your life?
- When you don't click with people your own age, what are the pros and cons of dating someone 17 years older than you?
- Nine months ago, you chose your job over other offers because it had flexible perks that are now being axed. How do you engage leadership to renegotiate terms?
- While networking in your field, you meet the same people at different events. The problem: you remember them, but they don't remember you. How can you stand out?
- You want to leave factory life behind and relocate closer to your kids, but you're 40 and don't have the skills for a different job. What's your best next step?
- Even though you're curious about your own genetics, are you right to be wary of the potential privacy concerns that arise from taking a home DNA test?
- You're speaking at a conference on behalf of your company where many industry leaders will be attending. How can you best network during your time offstage?
- You've lost respect for a friend who would rather waste their money than repay an old debt. Is this resolvable, or is it time for the friendship to move on?
- Life Pro Tip: Don't just thank someone when they do something for you. Tell them what it means to you. Example: Rather than saying “Thanks for the ride,” say “Thanks for the ride! You saved me a bunch of time. You saved me a bunch of phone calls. You saved me a bunch of effort. I really appreciate it!”
