Anyone here have the skinny on SBI (Sales Benchmark Index)? Being recruited for a Senior Consultant role. Curious to know pay, benefits, type of projects etc. It’s a permanent remote role (with travel to client site), meaning I can live wherever...which is quite intriguing to me. TIL.

Hey 🐠 - I’m early in my pregnancy and interviewing bc I’m afraid of being laid off soon. How can I find out from the firms I interview with whether they have minimum tenure requirements to qualify for paid maternity leave (e.g., need to be at firm 1 year before qualifying)? Obviously, this is the most important benefit for me and I will not be revealing my pregnancy during the interview process. Anyone been through this and have any advice? TIA

Temp check, please. What should I be looking for as earnings package (base + bonus + equity/benefits) for a VP level role (it’s a hybrid Marketing/strategy Head of marketing-type role)? I have a history of chronically under negotiating and don’t want to do that this time. (For context: Series A funded global start up, executive level role). Thanks in advance!

Take the Easy associate job that pays more with great brand name, great pay, great benefits, seemingly good manager, but the role isn’t what you want and isn’t as good of a stepping stone OR the difficult manager role that has great role, high impact, helps you learn, good skill development, average benefits, good pay (but not crazy outstanding), solid brand name BUT you don’t know the team/manager well & pay/benefits isn’t as high as the first

Some of these posts are ridiculous. They’re like just exited consulting to FAANG/Niche Startup with $150k base and $400k TC with 6 months of experience,you can do it too! Then they ghost or explain that they are a former SWE 😬 coming from MBB. Going to some super Niche role that people with crazy backgrounds are recruited for.
