Hi all, I'm making the move from big corporate to start-up at a senior level. This I am fine with and can't wait to get stuck in, however my question is on onboarding. They don't seem to have a well rounded HR function, so I am guessing onboarding will be a little light. I am used to onboarding others, so I am tempted to propose my own onboarding expectations/ideas in the absence from anything else... is this a good/bad idea, has anyone else experienced this type of thing?

Newbie Q. Does it make sense to refinance mortgage if my goal is to lower total cost of loan? For instance: currently have a 30 year fixed at 3.25% (loan originated 6 years ago so I have around $50K in equity). I can refinance to 30 year fixed at 3.125%. Closing fee is around $3K. Although I would be able to lower my monthly payment by ~$250 a month, on the long run I will pay ~$33k MORE in interest. Am I understanding that correctly? Can someone explain it to me as if I were a 5 year old🙏🏼

Consultant trying to exit to startups. Best third-party recruiters/headhunters to work with?
At startups is there an expectation that people are coached as they progress in terms of seniority? Or are they expected to learn themselves? I’ve seen a few people in my org promoted to senior or people manager roles who aren’t doing what I think they should be doing at that level. Some of it is a lack of experience and some, I guess is a lack of coaching or guidance by their managers
