Does anyone have strategy book recommendations that help with coming up with frameworks and just general strategic thinking for corporations? Looking for helpful material to help me level up at my new job.

I have a total of 4 years sales experience, 1 year in life insurance sales and 3 in retail banking (lending, investment referrals, merchant services referrals).

I did well in banking, but incentive plan has suffered tremendously, so I’m looking to jump into tech sales where I could be more compensated for the work.

Anyone in tech sales willing to chat? ☕️

NEED SOME CAREER ADV

i am pretty good at my job but am not seeing fairness in pay and can't stand my department (cool kids club/good ole boy club). I am being considered for a HR Analyst role as we speak with potential of making $20k more (HR and Talent Acquisition are separate at my company). Is it worth the jump to HR/Benefits or should I just get the experience and eventually make more money in Recruiting? I have a general background in HR but find recruiting to be super easy, to be honest.

If you had the opportunity to leave consulting and work in industry doing the same work (which you like!) minus the billable hours, sales goals, and terrible wlb but you would be in a location that is less than desirable to you, would you take the job? Assuming you are satisfied with the pay.

I didn’t realize that if someone is a consultant at McK or BCG, whether or not they’re actually doing strategy work is not clear. There’s groups of you guys? So different tracks and promotion and pay grades? Every Bain AC or C is the same — some fluidity in PEG vs GP, but overall same. BCG/McK has different tracks — are some of these tracks “better” or more elite? How can I tell who is actually doing strategy work vs staff augmentation or implementation?

For anyone who needs to hear this today to keep motivation up- when I started my side gig, I didn’t know if it would ever take off. Wasn’t sure if digital courses are a thing. Wasn’t sure if it can truly be passive. And now, while I was interviewing for a job, an order popped into my inbox. Not the first time, not the last time, but the frequency is steadily increasing. Paid, fulfilled on spot. Of course you have to do the work, but the days when you feel like giving up, remember why you started

Is it normal for a Product Owner to lay out specs for how a feature should work?

I thought that was my job as the ux designer to figure out the best way to solve a need. But I’m getting handed projects where the PO, and sometimes the senior designer has laid out exactly what should happen (components used, flow, etc) to design a feature. It’s really frustrating because I don’t know if I’m supposed to be speaking up on what I think or just do the UI work I’m asked to.
