A recruiter recently messaged me about an Amazon Robotics contractor role. My ultimate goal is to become FTE at a FAANG one day—will being an Amazon contractor hurt or help my chances for that down the line? It’s for a Business Intelligence Engineer role, which is exactly the kind of role I’m targeting, fwiw.
Why am I like this 😭

3rd year at 3rd firm of my career (a boutique) for ~6 months now in HCOL. ~150k TC. Partner at BL firm that pays under market ~210k base for third years reached out about a potential opening in same HCOL area. Partner is aware of my resume. Interested in the position and salary bump but worried about being labeled a job hopper in the long term. Also worried the grass may not be greener as I currently have good WLB and otherwise happy at current firm. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I’m interested in joining Chief. Can anyone share what is the application process like? And any recommendations from current members? Thank you!
Does creating your own content really get you opportunities? Just curious of what you all think.
A good strategy I have is to see what type of client I am talking to and make dinner in the house for that person. I mean, if it is a couple I prepare a romantic dinner for two, and I tell them to come well-dressed and let them enjoy the dinner in the house. If it is a family, I prepare a family dinner and prepare the family table for all the people who would live in the house. Making them feel at home before buying the house does not fail, what do you think? What other strategies do you use?

I have been with my company 20+ years. This past year they did a sales market restructure - directions from new upper management. The restructure has been less than favorable toward my commission goals. The coming years don’t look promising. There are sales people making $$$ only here 1-2 years because they were given all my opportunities. It is hard to leave this company - it has been great until now with the changes. I have a very strong job offer elsewhere - but worried about non compete.
Commission plan discussion:
I was promoted to Director of Sales and am tasked with revamping our sales commission plans
We are in a high margin industry, the majority of the team’s sales are transactional, so they are quick closes, and they have a base around 60k
Current plan is: 3, 5, 6, and 8% of revenue depending on different factors
I am thinking of streamlining to make everything 10%. (5% paid upfront when they land the sale, 5% paid once invoiced).
Thoughts? Things to consider?
