My private company is providing the option to tender your shares. Does this mean anything good or bad about the company’s potential to go public? Is it a good or bad or neutral sign?

Could be hostile, could be founders just doing share buy backs


Depends on a lot of things - would need to understand more about position of business but good for you (at least short term) if you have decent equity. Also maybe good long term for you but again depends on finances, company, etc

Good to hear. Then maybe think about how much it cost you to buy your vested shares (if you’ve purchased any) and how much it will cost you to buy your future shares then sell whatever % to cover that amount (and future amount) because depending on how many you have ishhh can get expensive and it’s still a risk that they’ll even be worth anything. Wow, that was definitely a run on sentence. Or, if super confident and have lots of cash then just let it ride.

Hi all - any tips on how to negotiate a salary offer? I’ve never done it before. I’ve always accepted jobs out of desperation - but not this time! I gave them a 5k difference in range. They met me at the higher end of my range, which is great! But as a woman, I know we tend to not ask for more. I don’t want to make that mistake.
Would love to hear others experiences and tips - any insight would be so helpful!

I received a job offer with a probationary period that requires targets are met to obtain the full salary I requested. While this is not a pure sales role, biz dev and revenue are part of the responsibility of managing a 30pp department in this role.

One target requires I increase team revenue by 20% in 6 months. They haven't shared current revenue info yet, but 20% on ANY number seems really high, especially in the first 6 months.

What are some reasonable revenue increase goals you've had?

Interviewing at boomi for a enterprise AE role. What salary range should I expect?


After 6 weeks off work, I went back,today, to a company I used to work with years ago, today. Good job with Work/life balance.Make a consistent 100k+. I took the job because the industry I was coming from is very seasonal and hiring won't be in demand until spring next year. Later this afternoon, one of the companies I interviewed with called me back for 3rd interview. This job is riskier but 150k plus, which what I was used too. I ll probably get the job. Should i take it?
