At Microsoft, is there a (un)spoken policy that if your referrer is x level or above, you’re guaranteed a recruiter screen as a courtesy to the referrer even if they don’t think you are a good fit and plan to ding you? Last year applied for a few roles with a Sr. PM referral...nada, this week, applied for a role with a Sr. Director referral and got reached out to by recruiter. Wondering if they are doing it a courtesy/don’t want to piss off senior folks vs they genuinely think I might be a fit.

I started as OM for this amazing non-profit in April 2021 and I'm starting to regret it. The ED is toxic AF and staff is afraid to speak up which puts me in the middle of some very uncomfortable situations. I do enjoy the work when there is no drama, however it is starting to weigh on me. I've also spoken to the ED about what needs to change and negative feedback, however it keeps happening. Do I start looking for another role ASAP? or ride it out until I decide in my own time what is next?
