Yeah, you must be doing world changing work so getting anxious is totally justified.

You must really need a vacation.

Feeling hopeful for a job offer in the coming week(s).

Would be my first entry to the ‘VP’ level, officially leading my own team and strategy without a CMO.

Curious where I should begin with compensation requests - no stock options avail. What’s a realistic salary without cutting myself short? Reasonable to request a signing bonus for loss of end of year bonus by leaving in Q4? What percentage of salary? Does PTO scale up at that level as well?

NYC, 10 years exp, Masters, great role fit

My job can easily be done from home, which my boss has acknowledged, but wants to be “fair” to those in operations who need to be on-site. Today is a very slow work day, many took PTO. I have some tasks to complete, but thought this to be a good WFH day. Why commute close to an hour both ways just to sit at my desk? I was told that it wouldn’t be fair to the team. This was mere hours after being asked to complete a task in 24 hours that the 3 managers assigned to it weeks ago failed to do. Fair?
