Has anyone ended up working for a prospect?

I just had a conversation with a CEO at a startup I admire, and the topic turned to sales hires. My jaw dropped at the comp numbers and I also really love the product, their selling philosophy (buyer centric, empathetic ; less volume based), and I feel like the CEO is an extremely empathetic bit straight forward person.

I'm considering throwing my hat in the ring for consideration, at the same time I've got a sales motion going on - any tips?

Gonna say the harsh truth. Part of the issue with these salaries is the configuration of these cohorts…For example design should NOT be lumped in with Product Managers. Working on customer facing, revenue producing Products should NOT be lumped in with internal Products. That’s why these numbers are dragged down. In real Product orgs there are very big gaps in comp between the different types of roles and that is okay.

Will soon be joining my 3rd job. Its a remote first job(which I am not a fan of), so I might actually end up switching again in like 1-1.5 years. I wouldn’t have made this switch but the new company has a much better brand value and money so I decided to suck up wfh for another year or so for career growth. I do plan on staying in the next job(4th) for 3+ years.

I am a senior accountant with a masters and CPA credential and 3 years experience. A colleague was just promoted to senior with no credentials and 10k higher salary.

How much more though??? Also should I push to have it matched now?

4.5% inflation and what’s our average salary increase?...

My raise % has historically been good. Company entered into a big lucrative deal in 2021 which brought on more work and with it, promises of more lucrative prospects for everyone.

Come performance review time, I’m getting a rave review but was informed that the increase isn’t as big as prior years because HR is limiting the raises and not giving the department as much discretion as it did in the past with nos.

Tried to ask for more but not getting to the sweet spot.

Time to find a new job?
