Recently promoted to TL. But, I, along with 2 people, verbally accepted role 06/06 - given vague answers as to what the true comp was & when we would officially be moved. About a month later, we were told we’re being transitioned into the role but there was a hold up with People Ops about how the role is defined & that’s why we aren’t compensated yet. We were told that once things were in order, pay would be backdated to day of verbal acceptance. Is this legal to be in the role & not comp’d?

Thinking a few steps ahead for my start-up... Are there intangible benefits to obtaining VC funding (I.e. beyond the obv $$$ to scale your start-up)? Like validation of your idea? Or reputational advantage etc? Better access to talent?

Because when I see posts by founders celebrating their $6M funding round and imagine if I were to go the same route, my mind thinks “great, now I’m $6M in debt and I work for somebody else”. I kind of see VC as a last resort

Joined a later stage startup and there are new VPs that were hired in the last 6 months. There is no roadmap or clear organization. My boss seems like he’s overwhelmed and I’m over his head (he doesn’t have background in this industry). I’m a little surprised but then again it’s startup life. He doesn’t see like a great manager but is a nice guy. Are your startup experiences like this as well? How much do you have to drive your own career path vs relying on manager?
