How much doing vs managing should a cso do in your opinion?

I haven’t found a lot of great cso’s who are also great managers. That is a problem, Bc then we don’t train strategists on what good managing/mentoring looks like.

What does the doing part involve? Actual projects or exec level work? What size company?

Probably not a ton of doing unless it’s new biz. But depend on the size of the company.

Running dept and development 40 dedicated clients 30 new business 30?

Are the roles at firms like Interbrand and Lippincot analogous to Big 4? I.e. is a director at KPMG or Senior Manager at EY a director/SM at Interbrand? Looking to apply and would appreciate insight.

Just signed a lease for a 5th floor walk up in Lower East Side / East Village and feel like it was a huge mistake (1 bed 1 bath). I’m afraid guests won’t want to visit because of the trek up. Valid concern, or are walk-ups truly common in Manhattan?😔

Hello Fishes, I have a Job offer from Cisco and Verizon(VDSI).

Cisco CTC - 16.2LPA , Fixed - 15.1LPA - Cisco TAC role.

Verizon data services llc - CTC 18LPA , Fixed - 16.1LPA

YOE - 6.5 Years
CCTC - 7.2 LPA
Tech - Networking and Security

Conflicted between both as I believe Cisco has a better brand value and great company to work for. But the offer from Verizon is competitive.

Is it a good idea to renegotiate with Cisco based on current offer from Verizon. Please share your thoughts.

Been freelancing with at a place for 4 weeks now. Was told that the booking is for 6 weeks. We are now in the middle of the 5th week and I’ve only had work one day this week. I’ve asked for more work and I’ve received silence. Not sure to charge these hours/days or what? Also not sure why they aren’t letting me go and just having me twiddle my thumbs instead. Thoughts on how to proceed here? TY.
