Anyone willing to mentor me to ask for a promotion at my current role? I’m a mid-level senior, with super high exec visibility. It’s a late-stage startup. Thanks!

Hey! What's your role/area and YOE etc? What's the company? People might be able to weigh in with appropriate salary etc even if there aren't folks who can officially mentor!

Finance manager with a 9YOE.

I would say make sure to have real things to point to about what you were able to impact recently, things that you've been doing that are more foundationally impactful, and have an open conversation with your manager about your more immediate path. I'm guessing it is quite a jump to the next level given that it's a startup, so I would imagine you'd need to make a case and even a proposal perhaps for what your role would look like/why it's needed, what you will deliver and then talk about what it's worth.
