For hiring exec/sr leadership, it feels like women need lots of industry exp while men can be new to advertising. I went to a panel & all 4 women were 15+ yr ad vets, the 1 man had 1yr exp in ads.

It’s very common for men to be promoted or given opportunities based on “potential” and very uncommon for women to be.

Usually seeing “potential” in someone ties very closely to how much they remind you of yourself.

This exact thing happened with one of my directs a few years back when he left my team/agency. Now we have the same title. The cherry on the top, probably making more than me.

Apparently this applies to ageism in the industry as well. I’ve heard more than a handful of people say that women begin to age out at 40, but that men have about 10 more “useful” years beyond that in the industry. So for men job opportunities begin to dry up at 50-53. 🤮

SC1, nope. There’s probably a lot of them.

I would venture this relates to the research showing women are much less likely to apply for a job they’re not 100% qualified while men will apply if they are 40% qualified or something like that.

Hi! I’ve been approached by Securonix for a Sales Director role in NA. I know the field and their competitors. The pay is good but I’ve seen a handful of websites with employee rating that is really bad. Each site has roughly 10 reviews but most are negative. Mostly referring to toxic culture and zero work life balance. How true is this in this sales org and the company in general? This is a backfill role after a 3 year tenure for the person who left.

How do you ask for a raise if you’ve been in the company for just 6 months?

I will have my annual interview soon and I’m not sure how should I approach this issue. Salaries for my role exploded in the last 6 months and I constantly receive offers with salaries that are way higher than mine.

At the same time, I’m not great at selling myself and I don’t think my performance has been outstanding (it’s a hard job) but I feel that I will end up leaving if I keep feeling underpaid.
