Having a tough time balancing staying at pre-IPO late-stage startup for 4 years for share vesting vs applying to new jobs to move up in title/salary/responsibilities. Base is low compared to what I could be making but major upside post-IPO on what my shares will be worth. Was anyone else in a similar position early in their career and have any thoughts?

If you really enjoy the company and still have time to vest, and IPO seems near, then stay. But do not stagnate there just for those hopes.

I would wait because you have lasted this long already. Why give it up now?

Which company?

Hi!! Any tips/stories on actively interviewing while ✨pregnant pregnant✨. (27 weeks)

All potential positions are fully remote, and they are all Mkting Manager/Senior Mkting Manager roles. I have three 2nd interviews coming up, and I am struggling with when to disclose! Two of the companies seem very mom-inclusive so far, so part of me wants to be upfront/honest to build a positive rapport as well as potentially negotiate maternity leave that I would otherwise not qualify for this far along!

I’m new to Canada and currently working as a BA for the same company I worked for, in India. However, the workload is a lot after I moved here and the pay scale is comparatively low. I started job search and currently negotiating salary with an early stage startup for PM position. Problem is, they’re very keen on comparing my current salary and fixing my compensation rather than fixing it based on my performance in interviews and their budget. Is this normal practice here in Canada?
