I had an initial discussion with a recruiter at Microsoft for a director role. She mentioned that the base salary would be $185K. That sounds very low. But I need help understanding if that’s true at all? — This figure doesn’t account for bonuses and stock. It is purely base. For reference, I have 8+ years of experience. Does anyone know what is the average salary at Microsoft for a director level?

How can I impress the senior strategist I am about to soon interview with for a junior strategy role? The role is opened cause the account is in a place to train and mentor a junior.

Strategy folks - how do you get good at … strategy? Recently started at a startup in a role where I’m the only person under the head of our product team who handles the strategy-focus of the company. He wants me to take more ownership from him and I want to crush it but have no relevant experience here and am still fairly junior. Any books or classes? Or is it just trial by fire.

How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
I need advice for a green card?
Your vacation isn’t “well-deserved”. It’s in your offer letter and it’s contractual. So take those goddamn days.

Has anyone ever told a recruiter they did not want to move forward due to terrible Glassdoor reviews (and the company’s snarky responses to the reviews)? 🙈 For context, I did NOT apply for this role, they reached out to me randomly. I answered a screening call, mainly because I had never heard of them and was curious. After the call, I started looking into them and there seemed to be a lot of fake 5 star reviews and pretty consistent negative reviews. Cont…

PwC CMAAS offer in hand, but one thing holding me back from accepting at the moment is the work/life balance. I’m transferring from audit. I understand work/life is a little crazy right now in CMAAS.
