Have an offer to move to a Fortune 500 company as a finance manager and an offer to move to a small PE owned company ($200m in revenue) as a business strategy manager. Same pay. Small company has me working with CFO/CEO/PE firm directly and large company has more benefits and defined career progression. Also the small company doesn’t have maternity leave and only has short term disability whereas the F500 has 1 month leave + disability. Which to take (kids in 2-3 years)? High impact or security?

Product manager at recently acquired fintech startup (great benefits & culture, manager role, little brand awareness, concerns w life after acquisition ), account manager at FAANG (great culture & benefits, $$, iffy role, great brand), biz ops & corporate strategy manager at large TMT company (iffy culture, meh benefits, manager title) What do you do? End goal is product or strategy. <3 YOE

Ad agency designer desperately looking for an out but I have a possible new job opportunity. Here is my dilemma: Pros.... more money, no crazy client demands, pitches or decks or even prospective clients that will go nowhere (in-house), better benefits Cons.... this is a big one - it’s healthcare I’ve been at agencies with a range of clients for the past few years. Career suicide taking an in-house healthcare job? Especially if role focuses more on growth & performance over design?

She sent an update/thank you note to the executive recruiter this morning and got this reply. Does the note portend good or bad news? She’s worked up like crazy.
