presents an opportunity to work at a startup, gain expertise in non-technical skills in security space. They are offering a decent base, few options, but no joining bonus) and currently in the interview process for a Security Engineering Manager role that is looking positive (technical role, tier-1 non-faang firm, public). With a target for a CISO role in 5-8 years, what would be better career choice?

How much do you believe in the startup?

It is NOT a unicorn startup. From my conversations, it sounded like they want to go public in next couple of years. Their product has good customer reviews on the internet.

Question for Introverted Partners : firstly, is there such a thing? If so, I’d love to hear how you made it to Partner and making it work thereafter.. Did it require you to accept that you need to be something you’re inherently not for this role and you worked at it ? Or did you double down on your other skillsets to compensate for it. TIA!

I think I’ve reached my breaking point at the current agency, it feels like a vicious cycle I’ve experienced one to many times and i’ve yet to be here for two years. Workload and environment keeps getting worse. I manage quite a large team but it gets difficult to keep them engaged when you yourself are tired of swimming against the current. Even though one would think I’m in the position to change the tied I’m exhausted from trying without success multiple times.

As I prepared to file my notice, the partner of the firm called me and asked me to stay. They’re willing to promote me mid year in December and increase salary next year in August. The current offer I have gives 60% pay increase and Partner still can’t match that offer after promotion. Firm leadership says here I have potential to be a partner in 8 years and talk about all the leadership support I have rn which is fair. Is this one of their tactics to make me stay or should I just leave…
