First time I interviewed at my current firm I didn't make it past my second round due to a bad review from an interviewer. Applied again a year later and got hired. In between that year, the interviewer who wrote me a bad review got fired due to poor performance. Moral of the story, it sucks that one person can mess up your job search so badly but don't give up! Often times it's not you, it's them!

Currently at 85k base. I got an offer for a Corporate Strategy in industry for 120k base (trying to negotiate to 130). I need to sign the written offer in 3 biz days.

Startup couldn’t give me any specifics because they are still interviewing but said they aren’t worried they can’t meet the Corporate Strategy offer. Can I sign the offer while waiting on the PM and leave for the PM role afterwards?

I have interviewed w/ every member of an early stage start up & have an offer to join as their 1st hire. I just don't trust their technical co-founder to be able to execute or attract the right talent, so I'm going to walk away from it. I trust the other co-founder though and want to be honest. Should I be blunt when saying why? Would anyone here have actually appreciated to hear this if you were in a leadership position at a start up, or is co-founder status too late to make a change anyway?

I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?
