3 questions to ask immediately after you’re denied a pay raise

Have you spent the past few weeks, or maybe even months, building up the courage to ask for a much-deserved raise, only to have your request denied? In a survey of more 7,000 employers conducted by compensation site PayScale, a majority of companies said that they aren’t planning to provide a meaningful pay increase to their staff this year.

3 questions to ask immediately after you're denied a pay raise

Have you spent the past few weeks, or maybe even months, building up the courage to ask for a much-deserved raise, only to have your request denied?

You’re probably not alone. In a survey of more 7,000 employers conducted by compensation site PayScale, a majority of companies said that they aren’t planning to provide a meaningful pay increase to their staff this year. In fact, nearly 70 percent said they plan to provide pay increases of 3 percent or less to some of their employees.

Lydia Frank, vice president of content strategy at PayScale, tells CNBC Make It that her advice for anyone who has been denied a raise is to “not take ‘no’ as the end of a conversation.”

“I think ‘no’ should be an opening to ask questions.”

Frank shares three questions you should ask immediately after being denied a pay increase:

CEO who hired for Microsoft, Amazon: 3 most in-demand skills for A.I.

The rise of artificial intelligence is rapidly changing the workplace. And while there’s less demand for basic cognitive, physical and manual skills, the job market is still absolutely electric.

But the growing competition for top talent has been choking HR departments — especially for those in tech. My managerial roles at Amazon and Microsoft have largely shaped the way we screen candidates at Outreach, the sales engagement platform I founded in 2014.

What’s important to note is that many companies — especially large ones like Microsoft, Amazon and Google — all have one thing in common: We utilize A.I., machine-learning and data science to enhance our products, so hiring people with the right skills to fill those gaps is a huge priority. The real struggle, however, is being able to successfully separate the wheat from the chaff.

According to a new report from the McKinsey Global Institute, the three most in-demand skills by 2030 will be:

Social and emotional skills Higher cognitive skills Technological skills

If you’re looking to fill a role at a large tech company, here are the types of interview questions employers ask to determine whether you have the right skills:

Pete Buttigieg, 37, thinks he can become the youngest US president

He says his place among the oft-maligned generation, rather than being a hindrance, gives him a sense of urgency and a “personal appreciation of the stakes.” “When your generation is literally the one that will be on the business end of climate change,” says Buttigieg, “you just look at things differently.” “In an older generation during the Cold War, you could kill an idea by saying it was socialist,” he says.

Pete Buttigieg, 37, thinks he can become the youngest US president

Born in 1982, Buttigieg (pronounced “boot-edge-edge”) is a millennial. He says his place among the oft-maligned generation, rather than being a hindrance, gives him a sense of urgency and a “personal appreciation of the stakes.”

“When your generation is literally the one that will be on the business end of climate change,” says Buttigieg, “you just look at things differently.”

He thinks it’s the proverbial ticking clock of crises like climate change and crushing student debt that’s made younger voters more amenable to creative problem-solving and less adverse to policies that might be quickly dismissed by older voters as smacking of socialism.

“In an older generation during the Cold War, you could kill an idea by saying it was socialist,” he says. “I think in our generation we just want to know if it’s a good idea, and the name-calling doesn’t work as much because it doesn’t have that same kind of horrifying connotation. It’s not just like a kill switch on a substantive debate.”

Buttigieg says that many of the major policy decisions being made currently “are going to cash out in my lifetime.” He recalls seeing a tweet dismissing the severity of a cavity under the Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica that could threaten the safety of coastal cities around the world — the glacier, the user argued, isn’t supposed to collapse for another 50 years. “I might be here in 50 years!” he says. “I definitely will. This is not someone else’s problem.”

He sees a similar need for immediate ways to address the mounting costs of college — which he says “is too expensive for too many people” — as well as the growing student debt crisis.

Lucrative tech jobs often come with intense hours and a non-stop work culture that leaves little to no room for anything else.

To offset that pressure, many tech companies provide extra perks and benefits. Job site Indeed recently analyzed over 100 million ratings and reviews on its platform to compile a list of the top 10 tech companies that provide the best overall experience for their employees.

Topping the list this year is Facebook, which moved up two spots from last year. While the social media platform has recently faced a lot of controversy, employees still praise the company for its work environment and benefits. In fact, even interns report being well taken care of, as they are provided with free housing during their internships.

Take a look below to see which other leading companies rounded out the top 10 list for best workplaces in tech:

As Brexit remains in limbo, Yale’s Stephen Roach says the ‘imperfect’ EU may not survive

As U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May presses on to take Britain out of the European Union, one leading economist raised questions about the viability of the single political and economic bloc. “You have to wonder about the future of the European Union itself … this is an imperfect union and the survivability of it is, I think, a serious question,” Stephen Roach, a senior fellow at Yale University, told CNBC’s Sri Jegarajah on Friday.

As Brexit remains in limbo, Yale's Stephen Roach says the 'imperfect' EU may not survive

As U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May presses on to take Britain out of the European Union, one leading economist raised questions about the viability of the single political and economic bloc.

“You have to wonder about the future of the European Union itself … this is an imperfect union and the survivability of it is, I think, a serious question,” Stephen Roach, a senior fellow at Yale University, told CNBC’s Sri Jegarajah on Friday.

Even before Brexit came about, the EU faced multiple challenges over the last decade, said Roach, who’s a former chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia. Those challenges include a sovereign debt crisis in Greece and a standoff with Italian leaders over the country’s spending plans.

And with the U.K. — one of the largest European economies — planning to leave the bloc, it remains to be seen whether the EU has the ability to withstand more pressure coming from member states while still reeling from the shocks of the global financial crisis, said Roach.

The EU agreed to postpone the U.K.’s exit from the bloc to May 22 if May can convince the British parliament to accept the existing deal. If May fails to convince parliament, Britain would face a disorderly exit from the EU on April 12.

Investor: The US and China will reach a deal, then markets will jump 15%

Despite all the back and forth between Donald Trump and Xi Jinping’s negotiating teams, the U.S. and China will ultimately come to a trade agreement, according to one investor.

When that happens, markets could soar 15 percent or more for the rest of the year, said Jackson Wong, associate director at Huarong International Securities.

“The rumor is (that by the) end of April, the deal would be 90 percent done. And, by end June, (the) deal would be signed,” Wong told CNBC’s “Street Signs” on Friday.

Wong’s prediction follows the market rally that began at the beginning of this year, roughly coinciding with investors’ increasing expectations that a U.S.-China trade deal could be inked.

“Now the investors in China or around the world are expecting a deal to be done. They have been expecting since the end of last year. So I think the market has been rallying from that point on,” he said.

The ongoing rally, he said, may continue a bit, but there is also a chance it could “consolidate around the current level for about maybe a few weeks.” From there, Wong said, markets will be set for another leg up once Trump and Xi reach an accord.

Such a deal could also have a positive impact on the real economy worldwide, he said.

His analysis comes amid the ongoing trade war between the world’s two largest economies that began about one year ago. That escalating fight has seen rounds of tariffs imposed on items ranging from soybeans to steel, attempts at reconciliation, and Trump declaring the benefits of a trade war on Twitter. Tensions have eased since the presidents of both nations agreed in December to pause any further tariffs while negotiations continued.

The negotiations are focused on both reducing the U.S. trade deficit with China and eliminating some of the systemic impediments to foreign firms succeeding in Asia’s largest economy.

Wong acknowledged that there have been differences of opinion on both sides, but he said he remains positive that both parties will be able to reach a consensus.

“Talks are going not bad,” Wong told CNBC. “The main differences, in my point of view, (are) solvable. China wants all tariffs lifted, and the U.S. wants a say in the new intellectual property theft and transfer policies.”

“If both countries give in a little bit, so maybe, you know, the tariffs will stay a little bit longer, and then China would give (the U.S.) more control over policies, then they can have a final deal,” he said.

Nonetheless, Wong said, the U.S.-China relationship is still rather weak.

“Both countries are standing on very fragile grounds and any sudden move on either side would break the trust on each other,” he said. “Investors are still cautious and nervous about that until they can decide a date that Donald Trump and Xi Jinping can meet. Otherwise, anything can be a wildcard.”

Indonesian airline Garuda is canceling its order for 49 Boeing 737 Max jets

Airline Garuda Indonesia said Friday it is requesting a cancellation to its current order for 49 Boeing 737 Max jets.

Newswires Reuters and AFP both reported the company’s plans.

Reuters, citing Garuda’s CFO, said the company may change its 737 Max order to another type of Boeing jet. The national carrier of Indonesia did not explain why it no longer wanted the planes.

In response to CNBC’s request for comment, Garuda spokesman Ikhsan Rosan said the airline sent a letter to Boeing on March 14 to cancel its order for the 737 Max jets. Garuda has not heard back from Boeing, but the aircraft manufacturer will visit Jakarta on March 28 for “further discussion,” said Rosan.

Garuda currently only has one Boeing 737 Max 8 in its fleet, according to Reuters.

The Indonesian airline is the first to publicly confirmed plans to cancel an order for the Boeing jets after two fatal crashes involving the 737 Max 8. The planes have been grounded by authorities in multiple countries — including in the U.S., Europe, China and Indonesia.

The Fed is 'not yet done' with rate hikes, according to S&P Global Ratings

Still expecting one more rate hike from Fed this year: Analyst 3:16 AM ET Thu, 21 March 2019 | 02:39

The U.S. Federal Reserve on Wednesday kept interest rates unchanged and slashed all projections of a rate hike this year.

Still, according to U.S.-based financial services giant S&P Global Ratings, the Fed is “not yet done” with rate hikes. Its chief Asia-Pacific economist told CNBC he thinks another increase may come sometime this year or early next year.

Speaking to CNBC’s “Capital Connection” on Thursday, Shaun Roache said better-than-expected economic growth and strong labor markets leave room for a hike.

Wednesday’s statement was a dovish turn from previous Federal Open Market Committee projections. The committee had previously predicted two rate hikes in 2019, following four increases in 2018.

The FOMC said it would be “patient” before any further increase in rates.

Given the “soft patch” the global economy is going through, Roache acknowledged that “it makes sense for the Fed to pause to watch the data to see how things evolve.” Still, he said he felt that concerns about global growth were “a little bit overdone.”
