Very hard to make VC partner without: 1) being an entrepreneur 2) being in one of their high growth portco companies as a key employee From my understanding VC promotions to leadership are quite hard, but will vary by firm.

That’s what I thought kind of…

Cross posting this but could use the female perspective — Got a really substantial (~40%) mid year raise after I brought in a basically unsolicited competing offer from one of our peers. My firm typically only adjusts salary on an annual basis in March, and I’m pretty worried I’ll see a smaller than normal annual raise this spring to “make up for” my out of sequence mid year raise. Any advice on advocating for myself to ensure that doesn’t happen?
