I have no comment on comp. But, make sure this start up is well funded. I see a lot on LinkedIn about startups and layoffs lately.

Just made a similar move, and 100% agree with Attorney 1’s comment about pushing to be part of exec/senior leadership team. You need to be on this team and have the transparency of what is happening throughout the company in order to be fully integrated so you can provide value to the company.

I cleared two rounds with Cognizant. The HR called and offer was discussed. We agreed to the package discussed and then I asked location. She told Pune but I applied to Noida. She told she will be discussing with Bussiness and get back to me as the opening was not for Noida. Then the recruiting manager called me and told the same thing. It's a week now and no response. They are not replying to mails and calls too. What should I assume? Cognizant

Hiring managers: let’s say you are interviewing someone with a lot of relevant experience, but may not be totally on point. What’s going to sell you on that person? This is truly a vague question, but are you looking for honesty about what they have vs haven’t done? Can you tell when someone is trying to spin it? (Feel free to also include anything that turns the candidate to a hard no.)

As a job seeker, what would be the benefits of taking a 12 month contract with no "contract-to-hire" statement in the listing over a salary or contract-to-hire position?

Would it be beneficial to start a LLC or something if I were to go this route? I've only held salary positions in tech.

At startups is there an expectation that people are coached as they progress in terms of seniority? Or are they expected to learn themselves? I’ve seen a few people in my org promoted to senior or people manager roles who aren’t doing what I think they should be doing at that level. Some of it is a lack of experience and some, I guess is a lack of coaching or guidance by their managers
