In HR round of an interview, should we raise the issue of recent mass firings going on with companies? Would they be able to explain or give any kind of assurance regarding job security?

Yes you should. In every HR or managerial I do ask questions about job security. Once you ask these questions they will give more insight about the project or BU you are getting hired for. Which can help you decide which company to join at the end of notice period.

Thank you. This was very insightful

I would never trust an hr with that information. The entire job of recruiting hr revolves around convincing candidates to join the company. Even if you ask them, they are going to tell only good things so you accept and join the company. Mark my words, you’ll never see/meet the HR who recruited you once you join the company. So go ahead and accept the offer and do a proper research of recent layoffs that the company did. Again, do not trust anyone’s word for it, it’s only you who is accountable for the choice you make.

I’m confused, someone humble me or reassure I’ll get chosen one day as a designer. Does this happen often?

Negotiating Raise to CMO

I’m finishing year 2 CPG startup where I lead marketing.

I was hired as “Marketing Manager” with the expectation that as long as I perform, I would continue to lead the department. I’ve helped the company grow from <$1M to forecasted $10M this year, and am the CEOs number 2. My ceo “de-prioritizes” titles, but I feel I’m deserving of it.

I’d like to negotiate the following:
- pay raise: $140k > $170k
- title: head of marketing > CMO
- equity: some added shares

Tips?

Earlier this month, Google told employees they were expected to come into the office three days a week.

To ease the transition, it’s gone heavy on the perks, throwing a series of welcome-back pop-ups and parties.
