I was just impacted by a layoff. Can you like this post so I can receive DM’s for possible referrals. If you know of any companies hiring that would be great. I have a combination of HR experience and claim’s experience. 23 years to be exact. Thank you in advance.
Will SF still be a major ad city after this pandemic? It seems like it was on the way out before, and this situation will seal the deal. It feels like Goodby is the only one keeping the area relevant.

Fishes, Need some suggestion- i have 2 offers currently and I am struggling to make a decision which one should I go for. I have 9 years of experience with current CTC as 20 LPA in Wipro (18 fixed and 2 variable)
1. Deloitte USI with 33.4 LPA as CTC (28 Lakhs fixed and 5.2 lakhs variable)
2. Snowflake with 31 LPA as CTC (27 lakhs fixed and 4 lakhs variable) with 18000 USD of stocks every year.
I had 2 partner interviews with Deloitte who both said they wanted me. then the recruiter said she’d get back to me in a few days with a decision. After I didn’t hear back I reached out to the recruiter and said another few days. Still no word. Should I reach out again? Last time I reached out was 8 days ago.
How many times do you reach out when they have shown a huge interest in you?
I'm currently a recruiter, with an HR background looking to make a slight career pivot. As an introvert, the recruitment aspect has been draining however, I do enjoy the non-phone screen aspects of it. I enjoy consulting with managers and looking at comp, internal equity and providing data to my hiring managers. I would love to know if there is anyone that has done a similar pivot (whether it's recruiter, HR generalist, etc.) to a Comp Analyst and what that transition has been like.

We’re in the process of redesigning our leadership and executive compensation structure. Both the CEO and CFO have their thoughts based on the seat. I'm exploring bottom-line and outcome-based bonus structures currently. Any feedback, views, questions, or advice?
(if it matters, we are a $600M per year company in the construction industry).
Help me understand why executives lie and gaslight so often. I’m new to this and don’t feel comfortable doing it.
Hi all, I’m just 3-4 years into my career and I aim to become a CEO of a mid-sized company. In order to navigate there sooner I am looking for advice on what sort of roles or opportunities to pursue, any distance learning MBA options that someone might recommend and any back door entry/secret sauce that you wish you had known earlier. Sincerely looking forward to your guidance🙏🏻
How long on average have you all stayed in one position? How about tenure at each company?
Does anyone have recommendations on an approach to get frequent feedback on employee sentiment across your teams?
I lead a global team of ~70 and growing. Most of the team is deployed to major company initiatives and pressure is high. We do big annual employee surveys, but I'm looking for good ways to get more regular feedback at scale.
I am a Senior Project Manager for a custom estate builder. We build homes over $50mm in construction costs for the ultra wealthy. I have been with this firm for 15 years and make $350K annual. There is only one partner and the sole proprietor who is essentially retired. They split ~$5MM in profits per year. I have reached the limit on title / career progression in my company - nowhere upwards to go. I highly doubt they will ever partner anyone else into the business. Do I leave?
Working my way up the corporate ladder. I have so many thoughts on leadership and want to initiate changes in the departments I work with. But at this level it's so difficult. Ppl are so resistant to change.
My key learning thus far in my career: Noone gives a shit about your ideas unless you're a head honcho. Real change is brought about from a position of authority.
Got an opportunity for a Director role that will oversee a new and major changes across the org but won't have people under me. Should I be worried?
What’s the best way of encouraging young team members to actually disconnect during their time away? I have some individuals that will not take actual vacations, they say, “I’ll have my laptop and phone”. My response is “please leave your laptop at home and turn off teams and outlook phone notifications. If there is an emergency and we have a question only you can answer, we can call or text. we’ve got this.”
And then they teams checking in 2 days later 🤦🏼♀️
How do you let go of the need to be liked by subordinates? I have a people pleasing streak.
Has anyone worked with an executive recruiter or headhunter to identify opportunities and support placement into a new role? Any referrals? Specifically in the digital product, innovation or design field.
I’ve been a mid-level manager (Sr Operations Manager) for the last three years. Been in my industry for 10 years. I feel I have plateaued in my career path. I’m trying to promote to a Director of Operations role in house and looking at outside opportunities as well. I feel like it’s taken longer to obtain this position than my previous roles. Any advice from Sr/Exec Management to be more self aware and fill in the holes to finally hit the finish line?
I’m planning to negotiate a bonus structure. Does anyone have any tips or models of bonus / commission structure?

I’m currently considering an offer and am finding that all online compensation benchmarking is falling flat in terms of understanding how I should be looking at comp for this role. I’d value your advice on how to access cleaner comp data and/or how you might look at comp for this role: Chief People Officer for a $2.5BIL revenue ($150MIL net income) global organization. 50,000 employees. USA based. Looking for Total Comp and cash targets/benchmarks.
How do you choose between Exec Education programs at b-schools? Does hybrid matter? Writing an article…
