SVP = manager. The titles are a convoluted mess, but a challenge to align across consulting and restructuring (where we get a lot of former I-bankers)

I love the inflated titles, works great on unassuming non-professionals

Have a friend who applied for a VP role at a software development company. They have a total of 30 people in the company. She keeps going on about how she has meeting with the Executive Team etc... I hate s... like that!

The confusion works great for some. We recruited a guy from Alix that was a Vice-President, he came in as a Senior Manager. Poor dude is way out of his depth and is going to be let go after being here a few months, but that would have been a hell of a jump if it had worked.

$220k total comp.

It’s a manager level role. New MBA: VP Project manager / leader: SVP Principal / senior manager / AP: Director Partner / almighty / deity / enlightened one: Managing Director

need advice. I have been working in an interim role as a portfolio manager. I was promised that the role would be mine. However, after doing the job for 2 months, I have been advised that we might not get the funding for the role and I might not get the raise and the title but my responsibilities will be the same. Its a political minefield. How should I back out elegantly that I need to be compensated fairly and competitively from this mess without burning any bridges
