3 years of transaction advisory under my belt. Got a call from a recruiter to see if I would be interested in a placing a CFO position at a 'growth’ company. Scale of 1 to Waste-of-My-Damn-Time?

How many employees and Rev?

Internal recruiter?

Waste of your time. Any "promising" company that can't get an industry veteran to join for a CFO role is trash, unless you personally already had a close connection to the leadership team

I feel like there is an easier way to do this on line learning. Same grade teachers at the same school should be one big group. For example: One teacher has the discussion or lecture and does the presentation to all classrooms. One teacher mans the computer to answer questions that come in and handles any tech issues. Another teacher grades assignment and takes role and handles the admin part. Wouldn’t this be easier? Teachers could rotate or just stay in one role.

I currently work at a firm that pays above market. 12 YOE, people transformation ( culture, not ERP/tech implementation) background. Current total comp is about $140-150k, plus $20k unvested equity. Is this a reasonable salary expectation for my next role: $165-$180 total comp annually, something like: $150k base, 25% bonus, + $30k equity, $25k cash sign on to replace what I’m walking away from in outstanding equity and expected bonus payout for 2021.

Would love to speak with anyone who made an exit from consulting shortly after reaching M. How did you think about the following? 1. What functional roles will you actually be good fit for? How does one really know? My resume of case work just confuses me tbh 2. What level should you / did you shoot for? Is AD a realistic goal? 3. What platform did you use to search for jobs? LinkedIn? 3. How did you shortlist your set of target companies? 4. How did you ultimately land the "right" job?

Is there ever a benefit to telling your RL that you don’t see yourself staying long term? At the SM level and I’m really just over it.

However, can see how it may ding future ratings so probably best to keep my mouth shut

For those who exit to industry, do you find recruiters lowball? They often quote a salary based on YOE and their standard pay - often lower because their salary progression is slower. 4YOE at consulting you make $120k~$150k but they quote $100k because that’s how they pay their homegrown analysts. Nobody thus far thinks 4y at consulting is worth 5-6 YOE, I’ve even met someone who only match me to their 2-3 YOE analyst because they think their program is more prestigious and want to hold me back.

Currently on STD leave for mental health. Been going through sessions with a psychiatrist and a counselor. On lexapro and hydroxyzine for anxiety and depression. Still can’t get over the fear of going back to working like a dog with no sort of peace. Through the sessions we have established the fact that consulting or B4 is very toxic for my sanity and quitting the job is what I need. What are the repercussions of putting 2 weeks notice, once I am back to work FT? Can STD leave be cancelled?
