Considering a job with a large cannabis dispensary. Would be a huge salary bump. Seems if I took the job I might be limiting future opportunities / damaging professional credibility due to public perception and quasi-legal nature of industry. Does anyone have any experience in the industry, especially transitioning from the industry later?

Probably depends on whether the company name on your resume is something like AlternaHealth or Dude, Where's My Bong? And whether you describe your duties as boring accounting things, or sales rep/product tester.

Technically they could be shut down by the feds, but the probability of that happening is very low considering it would upend a good amount of jobs in the states where MJ is legal

I worked for a cannabis company and got a HUGE pay bump after public accounting. Most cannabis accounting is horrific. So get VERY clear on what their records look like and who’s in the department. If mgmt is at the point of hiring you they’re probably on a good trajectory but there will likely be growing pains. And there’s still a lot of issues with not being federally legal. There were multiple payrolls where I received cash and felt very weird depositing the cash into an atm. Also make sure that if you’re getting paid by the cannabis company that you open an account at the bank they use so that your account doesn’t get closed if you bank at a large player.

Any folks here ever take “garden leave” or cooling off leave where your company pays your a salary during the non compete period? If so, can you literally just quit the job and they still have to pay you? Offer I have says if either the company terminates me for cause or I voluntary leave, I am subject to the non compete and will get garden leave.

Any thoughts on ESPPs? I finished a final round with a startup who was acquired by a well known corporate company in late 2020.

Do you think negotiating for more base because there’s no stock in TC would be a good idea? And any experience with ESPPs?
