Not if you are doing BD/PD/not turning down open roles. Even as an M2, it’s not solely your responsibility to be staffed at all times, your resource manager and your partner should be directing you towards roles.

Should I accept this offer? Series B start-up: $170k base + 20% bonus + 30k equity.
Current TC (Fortune 100): $140k + 20% bonus + 7k equity. Bonus at current is more guaranteed than the offer, where they said they haven’t been able to give our bonuses every year. Also apprehensive to join a start-up right now given the macro-economic environment. But then again, big companies are making layoffs too…

Anyone have any idea when the hiring freeze might end within AWS ProServ? I’m currently at Amazon and have a TS clearance, PMP & CSM. I come from a Big4 consulting firm with a background in Enterprise Performance. I’ll be honest and say I’m not feeling very safe in my current role with the ongoing layoffs. Instead of leaving, I’d love to go back to my “consulting roots” and join the ProServ team. I’m taking my AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam next weekend. Hoping this freeze is lifted soon.
