Been with my current company for 6 years. Started in customer service and added HR responsibilities year 1. Now do on-boarding,recruiting, phone screening, interviewing, salary negotiation, offer letters, medical enrollment, and revamped employee handbook. I hold the HR Manager title when dealing with paperwork but my CEO still has not made an official announcement and my pay is not the market rate of an HR Manager. Majority of my work is still in Customer Service.
What do I do now?

If you join a seed stage start up just prior to Series A in a CEO minus 1 role (e.g. COO or Chief of Staff), can anyone speak to a framework / key considerations for comp expectations in terms of cash vs. equity?

Life as an EM had been good for past 6 months but I can see next year being crazy due to attrition, team constraints and growing demand. Quite keen to get out of consulting and have sensible WLB. I have an offer to join as a strategy mgr at a relatively mature FS org reporting into VP of strategy (who reports into the CEO). Comp is okay but I am concerned that this may be a bit junior? Also not sure if EM to individual contributor is a big step down or a norm when you move to industry?

Any examples of a variable compensation model for VP Corp Dev (head of corp dev, a sweating to only CEO) of 1B rev company? Like what percentage of the deal should I ask for in addition to 250K salary and undetermined amt of equity? i.e., 3% on deals up to $1M, 1% on deals up to $10M etc.

I got an offer to join exec team (direct report to CEO) of a company - I don’t know/come from the industry, nor do I know the team (beyond interviews). Legit company in fintech, been around for decades, privately held and on path to IPO in 2-3 years. Comp is easily 2x what I make now 3 years post MBA, with equity upside. Better WLB too. But…can’t shake the feeling theres something here I’m missing. Is it just impostor syndrome or am I really unqualified to do this and should avoid?

Interviewing for a chief of staff role at a startup that’s raised about $14M so far. What should I look for when assessing if this is a good opportunity?

Would work directly with CEO and expecting cash compensation of 100K and 0.25% of equity. Is the equity % low?

CEO hopes to sell at 100M, meaning the equity would be valued at 60K a year (4 yrs), but this seems optimistic to me.

2 YOE for reference.

Got an offer from an established (but disorganized, unstructured) startup. Cash comp is good (but not great - 30% paycut over my consulting pay) and was given equity worth a few millions @ a valuation of 3B. Problem is - I have absolutely no clue what this firm is worth at the moment. CEO says it’s currently worth at least 6B. It has good growth potential but I have no way of estimating the probability of this being materialized if and when a transaction occurs. How should I think about this?
