Any suggestions (or books or articles) around taking startups from smaller (50-100) to the 300-500 range? Would love to read more about challenges that usually come up at this stage and how people navigate them. I just joined a series C and want to be prepared to navigate things.
What courses would you recommend (or avoid) to improve my overall management skills? I am reading books, articles and my company provides me with a career coach. I am 38, and don't really want to go back to school. I have my BS in Psychology, but am a Director in Finance. Don't necessary want the cost that comes with an MBA.
I have over 12 years in B2B sales/sales management experience along with a graduate degree. I am wanting to shift gears and I am at a point where I can invest time in myself to learn through practical experience. The new industry I am wanting to pursue is real estate investment. I have read all the books but want some hands on experience on the property management side. How could I best leverage my skills for a role in this, and what should my expectations be for negotiation in compensation?

I'm looking to pivot from consulting into tech. I've gotten lots of interesting from tech companies on the ops side but am much more interested in product management.

Any recs for insightful and well written books on entrepreneurship? Friend is trying to launch his own startup so I’m thinking of sending him a relevant book as part of a thank you gift
Imagine you're looking for a remote job at a large company with a sophisticated marketing function, strong manager, and room for growth. Making good traction, but then you're contacted by a company in a niche that FASCINATES you...like you read books about this subject for fun, you'd probably love this job. It's remote, the salary is good, the manager is nice, but you'd be the most senior marketing person; the company is about 200 people. What would you do?
Any recommendations for a “good” leadership book that has helped you? Hard to choose when reading reviews on Amazon, I prefer more personalized recommendations (as personal as it can get on fishbowl). Thank you!
I’m looking for a new opportunity and I’m open to either wealth management, financial planning, hedge funds, private equity, asset management, or trading. I’m more of a hunter/closer not a gatherer. I manage $100 Million in assets, but my book is mostly NOT portable. I’m a CFP, ChFC, hold the Series 7, 65, and Life insurance licenses. I have 12 years experience in wealth management and I’m finishing up my MBA soon with a concentration in Mergers & Acquisitions. 3.6 GPA from top 50 university.
Our senior creative leadership keep talking about winning Cannes Lions and D&AD pencils but none of them have actually won any since 2007 (that’s 14 years 😭 ) and between all three of them they’ve never won more than a couple of silvers, a couple of bronzes and a couple of in-books (that’s with a combined experience of over 60 years 😭). They have no clue 🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭. Tell me something about your agency so that I can feel better about the hell-hole I find myself in🙏
I am studying for MBA and need 3 books. They are very expensive to buy, so I am wondering if any of you have access to a soft copy that you can share.

> Theory and Practice of Leadership by Roger Gill

Agile program managers, I am looking to dedicate a few hours per day to growth. Would appreciate any great book, podcast, skill building recommendations on managing agile software dev programs, specifically working automotive user interface and design.
This is consistent with the research findings in my book "Lead From the Future". The 5-10 year horizon brings as much to see opportunities as much as threats and is the north star; need even now

How do you manage tax implications of equity grants? My company has been paying me bonuses in stock (and cash). The grants gradually turn into stocks, at which point they are taxed as income (so 400 granted stocks is returned at 100 per year for 4 years, but I only see 50 each time because its taxed as income). At that point, I believe I'm liable for capital gains tax for value increase.
NB I don't want you to do my sums. I want to know which service to buy.

Additional Posts in In-House Counsel
Final round of a 4 round interview process. Any tips ? I won’t be working this person at all.
Is in house worth the pay cut from firm life???
Hello everyone! I am currently a state civil attorney but want to pivot to in-house in the future. However, I have been told by a few attorneys that staying at my state job will make it more difficult to go in-house. Would you guys agree with that? Should I try to go private first and then in-house? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!
Transitioning from junior in house at a very small company where I only did small easy contract review to a large multinational corporation in a few weeks, and have those weeks off. Does anyone have any book recommendations I can read until then that actually offer good insight and helpful tips?!
I didn’t learn that much on the business side and I love reading, so seems like a good idea to relax while also preparing a bit.
I’ve been in my in-house role for about 7 years now and starting to feel some stagnation. What do you all do to upskill or keep career capital strong for the future?
Thoughts on the use of productive tracking software to track and quantify the work of in house counsel?
There has been a lot of coverage of these lately and they seem somewhat incapable with legal work, just wondering how others feel about the prospect of their employers implementing something like this.
I work at a large, global software company, and am looking to make a move to a more collaborative environment with better culture. I’ve been offered a more senior position at a smaller North American company in the crypto space where I know I will learn a lot, but I’m worried it might hurt my overall career trajectory. Eventually I plan on moving internationally. When it comes to searching for a new position, does company size/reputation matter more than the experience you have at the company?
Tips to handle a non-legal boss that cuts you off relevant matters?
Entered to the company as its first in-house counsel
The legal issues were previously handled by the CFO with help of outside counsel. 1st year was hard because he was territorial about legal matters, but I reported directly to the board so it wasn't a true issue
2nd year: The CEO retires, and the new one decides to put me under the CFO in the organigram. Now I'm back to square one bc this guy cuts me off any relevant issue!
Anyone here work at CrowdStrike and is willing to share your experience, likes/dislikes? Have an interview coming tomorrow.
At what point in a new job do you start to get a feel on how the GC wants you to draft documents? I’m a second year attorney who just went in house a month ago to a company where it’s just the GC and I. He’s been a great mentor so far and knows I’m a novice, but I always feel horrible when I spend hours on a contract draft and he changes all of my redlines.
Anyone ever lose their patience with the business folks on a call? Need some encouragement or at least 🥃
I do fractional GC work, but have gotten in pretty deep with one client. I log about 100 billable hours/month with them, but because I agreed to a total fee cap, I’m really only getting about 100-120/hr. It’s every bit a full time job, and it’s really wearing me out. What’s a reasonable rate?
Should I move to Amazon? Currently in-house with a mid-sized tech startup in LA; 7 YOE, 200k TC. While my management definitely has flaws, my bosses are kind people, I learn from them, and I have good WLB (45-ish hours a week, 3-ish weeks of vacation, great flexibility and autonomy with these things). Have an offer from Amazon at the same level (Counsel) with comp around 320, but I understand WLB is generally poor for lawyers. I was miserable in BigLaw before going in house, and (cont’d)
I’m interviewing for a mid-senior in house position at a closely held tech / manufacturing company next week that does around 11B annually. The legal group seems super lean— ~10 lawyers for the Americas. What should I emphasize at the the interview to stand out? Is this likely just a personality test?
Hi posting for a friend… was invited to final round interview two weeks ago, and recruiter never responded to email providing interview availability. Sent two follow-up emails providing additional dates (since initial dates passed). At what point is it appropriate to reach out again? Or just assume the position is no longer open?
Tips to land an in-house position (before I bash my head into my keyboard in Litigation)? I had my first in-house position today. However, I feel like I’m not getting a lot of responses from my applications. How’d you land your first in-house role?
I seem to have been ghosted after a 4 round/7 week interview process for a legal counsel job. My last round I met the CEO & CFO. That was 2.5 weeks ago. I reached out to the in-house recruiter last week and just found an “I no longer work there” email in my spam. Have heard nothing from the hiring manager. I assume I wasn’t selected, or at best, that I’m their second choice. We were pretty far apart on salary so that may have contributed. Has anyone gotten an offer after a 2.5w silence?
Does anyone have any insight about the interview process for a corporate counsel position at Amazon? Also wondering if anyone has information about salary. I have 6 years experience in big law and I need to figure out how to answer the question about what I expect compensation wise.
To those who are in-house: Are you truly satisfied with your work-life balance? Are you regularly working late and/or on weekends?
