Anyone ever leave a FTE job with full benefits for a 1 year contract? I'm hoping to avoid future regrets - am definitely burned out and under-comped at my current position and we've been losing team members almost every week to greener pastures. I've been at the same place since I started in tech, from an intern to a PM, 6 YOE. Currently managing a peer (!) and reporting to a VP. The contract is for a company I'm interested in working for, but no conversion guarantees and I'm nervous. Stories?

I am ready for a VP position. I have been a director for six years, obtained my MBA, have become certified in Organizational Leadership from a very reputable institution and built two stellar departments in my field of healthcare. How do I make this jump? I am not being considered for VP jobs outside my org based on “scope and scale” and this position is not available at my current hospital. I’m ready to make this jump. Any advice on how to position myself? Advice much appreciated.

I’m being considered for an an Assistant Controller role and have a final “meeting” with the Controller and VP of Finance.

The recruiter let me know Im the only remaining candidate being considered, so the Controller and VP of Finance want to talk on Friday to discuss long-term strategies for the accounting department and company, the immediate challenges facing the team, and any other questions I may have.

Other than compensation/benefits questions, is there anything I should ask them? (cont)

I recently received a VP offer at AlixPartners, can someone at AP help me understand this new profit sharing/ longevity bonus they have? The HR rep was not very clear given how new it is.

As a technical consultant (data scientist), how important is it for you to develop relationships with clients in the specific industry you're interested in, like healthcare, as you move up? Or, is it enough to just build a track record of tech chops & impact at the VP/C-level of other industries, even if you don't have any personal rapport with clients to leverage?
