Who is $200k WFH job with?

I’ll take it

Did you not know that you weren't going to hit your sales numbers? It's not worth getting another sales job if you won't hit those numbers either. I'd rather take a $200k job with growth. Heck, I'd rather just take a $200k job and coast. I don't even need that much money if I like a job enough to ride to early semi-retirement around 55.

Looking for a Paid Search person interested in branching out across all paid (social, display, CTV, etc). 3-5 YOE. Small agency, lots of hats. Competitive pay, remote, average ~8.5 hour days, I'm very easy to work under if you're on top of the job. You'll be spread thin for sure but also learn a ton. Very performance focused. Using analytics, tracking pixels, CRM integration, that sort of thing. You'll become a master of turning media dollars into attributable revenue.

My supervisors go from telling me that I'm valuable to making me think that I'm about to get fired...in a 24 hour period.

Anyone start a new job remotely and have tips to feel more integrated into the team/agency? I left my previous agency of 7 years and am now 3 months into a new gig but feel really disconnected, especially now that work is picking up. Team/agency culture used to be what got me through busy periods but having trouble finding that now. Lots of video calls and 1 on 1s to check in but still siloed in my home office. We all work remote from different states so going into our NY office seems pointless.
