Going through interviews for a capital excellence associate. I'm a Mechanical engineer/certified construction manager, have managed over $350M in capital design and construction spending over a 8 year career. No master's, undergrad in Mech E from a good engineering school (Stevens) but not a true "target". My research looks like base/bonus/sign on of 165/35/30 for this type of role. Sound accurate to anyone who can hypothesize on this?

TIA.

Expecting an offer, which I’m excited for but after the interview I realized that this division is 98% start up. The title is Sales Associate however the responsibilities beyond selling are: build the sales program; responsibility for all admin; education of staff including developing and conducting training regionally; creating marketing and promotion campaigns; reporting and measurement of staff performance involved in sales. No direct reports. What is an appropriate title and salary range?

I’m one half of an in-house legal team. I followed my attorney to this company because he’s the best boss I’ve ever worked with. We are looking to add a third person, an associate. I get to be part of the interviews because the day to day work will mainly be done with my assistance and my boss rightly understands that I need to like the person. What should I ask? I’ve never interviewed anyone above me. Basically just want to know they aren’t a jerk to staff.

There’s a position I want to apply for that requests one more year of experience than I have. I’m considering still applying for the position, because, why not? I have a friend who is a junior associate at the firm and am wondering if I should submit through the friend, or if it would be better to submit directly. I don’t want to put the friend in a position of recommending someone the firm may feel is not qualified. Any thoughts? TIA

Hi all! I just got a Senior tax associate role in industry ($85k, MCOL; 17% more than I currently make). Enjoyed the people I interviewed with; my only hesitation is that the company itself has had a rough couple of years (healthcare company, had a few bad acquisitions that they’ve since shed off). Their busy season is just January and early February, with their team working until about 7 PM during the week and a few Saturdays. I’m interested, but it’s also my 1st offer; what would you do?

How many rounds of interviews do firms usually do for laterals? I have a first round coming up with a co-chair, partner and associate in the group I’ve applied to, but it’s unclear whether that’s just a screener/I’d have to do callbacks. If relevant, I’m being poached by a partner that just joined from my current firm so my understanding was that I’d be fast-tracked.
