No, borderline medium

Thoughts on joining a company at this stage?

Falls within category of SME (Small & Medium sized enterprise). Small being less than 100, Medium being 100-999. Not big, but arguably not small

I generally prefer smaller companies. They tend to have a more 'grassroots' feel where everyone is working for a common purpose.

Once a company hits about 1000 or more people the culture tends to change. They tend to become more process driven and political, losing some of that camaraderie and identity that you have with a smaller company.

No, 200 is on the small side of medium.

I believe the technical term here is “shmedium”

That's a medium sized company, really. I'd say over 500 is something that's "big".

No its not big. I would actually prefer to be at a smaller place with that many employees. We have thousands where I am at :)

Definitely SME. I've been on some incredibly lean teams in my day, well below the 200 people mark. While it's cool to see how much a small team can get done, I prefer having enough people to effectively handle a growing workload.

Not quite, this is on the smaller end of company sizes. I personally would prefer not to work at a place much larger than this.

Right on, so I'm in the right place then

Nope. It's not big. It's small to medium, is this a new company?

No, they've been around for a decade

So I’m being contacted by GS for an associate role in Dallas. I live in Tampa. Making around $88,500. What is the realistic amount I can ask for? I assume I can try and get $120k to $130k for an associate role within GS. Hear hopping firm to firm is a standard and it usually brings a nice pay hike.

Also, McKinsey’s offer is in their technology & digital department (non consulting) so WLB would be definitely better it seems. Worth slogging for 3 years or so at Amazon and skip McKinsey?

Hi everyone !

I currently work in SaaS, and I recently got proposed a Customer Success Manager position there. I was initially looking for an Account Executive position, but I was afraid to be a bit bored, and not to be able to express my creativity enough in this position. From what I was explained, CSM would allow me to work in between several departments and to be very free.
In your opinion, should I wait for an AE role or are learning and growth opportunities bigger as a CSM ?
