In the UK market, which intermediaries do you rate highest and are worth the investment (both time and $$).

I’m going to be honest and say I’m not sure what you mean by intermediary but that’s likely on me. While I don’t have experience in UK market I would love more context on this.

Gotcha! Okay I’ve always referred to them as agency search consultants. Thanks for the clarity!

Product owner role
Airbus vs VMware
Fixed is same in both, Airbus is paying higher variable pay amount and hence higher ctc.

I am also in the middle of interviews with some other firms but for now I have these 2 offers. Which do you think would be right considering WLB, opportunities and hike/growth. If someone from VMware can mention what's happening within the firm with respect to Broadcom acquisition, that will be helpful

Should I take this new job?

Been at current agency for a year, loved it and love my team. Pros: Benefits are great, as is the mentorship and work is generally quite stable. Cons: Lower paid

The new agency is smaller and benefits aren’t as good but I’ll get a +45% pay increase and title bump. Work is different to what I’m used to which is both exciting and daunting (imposter syndrome will no doubt kick in!).

Ideal situation would have been to stay in current role another year or two... help!

If yes, what should be my expectations?

Also, say if I get another offer, will it be okay to say No to the previous offer? I mean they trusted me and gave more than expectation earlier.

Hi all! First : shout out to the folks who sold the super bowl clients! Question for all. What tools are you using for biz dev? For finding clients specifically.
