I took a temporary job as an attorney advisor at the SBA this past fall b/c it offered a regular paycheck, and my solo practice was suffering b/c of the pandemic. I like the work.

Hi,
My Company is promoting me from an Individual contributor to a People/ Group Manager role in Supply chain. In this new role, around 5-6 Supply Chain Managers will be reporting to me.
I am yet to get an official letter as it is verbal at this point. I am wondering what % raise should I ask for? I am not in a position to say no to this opportunity so cannot hardball them.

Any guidance will be appreciated.

I made SC at a Big 4 in 2 years after undergrad. I'm in APAC and work in Program Delivery + Business Analysis of Tech implementation projects. I don’t want to be in this field as I don’t find it fulfilling nor is it prestigious enough for me to stick it out. What exit opportunities can I consider? So far I’ve narrowed down doing strategy at MBBs or investing as a VC. Or should I just stick it out till Partner? In the long run I’d like to be a great CEO and if not, maybe okay/good investor.

Need help assessing a potential offer. Currently interviewing with LinkedIn for a SM level Change and Communications role (I’m in Chicago).
Recruiter said base is ~ $140-160, ~15% bonus and RSUs starting at 100k vesting over 4yrs. This seems very low to me esp since I have 12 YOE in consulting, and am at $180k base now. Thoughts? Tips on negotiating more? (To be fair I am still in final rounds and an official offer hasn’t been made but want to counter immediately 😌)
