Interviewing at a start up for a senior (ish) role in a strategy / Corp dev / M&A role. In final stages. How common is it to be asked to speak with one of their sponsors? Head of the sponsor is very senior at one of the well known growth funds. If so, what should I expect the focus of the convo to be on? Trying to be extra prepared. TIA

I have an interview for a LTC/Rehab Nurse Manager, Infection Preventionist position next week. My base salary is $40/hour as a charge nurse. With overtime I’ll be finishing the year about $15000 above my base pay. I have questions: first, I know I’ll be putting in at least the same number of hours I’m current working (50+/wk). How do I leverage that to avoid a pay cut. Also, any tips from people in this position?

I see a lot of people on this bowl saying to treat equity as worthless when evaluating startup offers, and I wanted to provide an alternate take. Over the course of a career in tech / startups, equity is a very meaningful part of compensation (even if it sometimes ends up being worthless for a specific role, and/or only pays out a few times in a career). Please don’t disregard it - IMO it’s one of the better risk adjusted ways to make real money. Focusing on only cash comp is limiting long-term.
