Show of hands if you’ve ever felt like you had to stay dark on social during a pitch or any other time because your boss is a friend or follower.

You can set access privileges to people’s profiles and how much they can see if yours.

Also, if your boss is calling people out for having lives outside of work by snooping their social media , that’s mad toxic.


If you feel like you need to do that, you need to change companies. Where do you work, so I can avoid it?


I did it for friends that I knew would love to be hanging out too but were stuck. But never for my boss.


Are they really a friend?

I personally hate this kind of stuff where CDs try to be buddy buddy. Showing up at bars, asking to grab dinner, etc.

Stay dark why? because you’re supposed to be working non-stop??

As an L5 who gets promoted to L6, do you receive a promotion grant? Ie I imagine if you’ve been at google for a while your realized comp in y1 of l6 is higher than a new l6 on average because your old grants (from l5 days) are still vesting in theory? Am I thinking about this wrong?

Hey all, I’m building out the sales team at LeadForensics. I’m looking for current SDR’s that have a proven success and looking to take the next step. We are the global leader in reverse IP tracking.

Great culture, great career opportunity & HQ is in the UK so PTO is 28 days!

I got laid off in December and am considering taking a massive pay cut for my next job. I was client side being massively overpaid, but always stressed and didn’t love the pressure of being senior.

I have informal 1/1s with a Senior Producer in another department, recently she started having opinions on my management style and talks about her own experience and style and how it’s different. She doesn’t ask me questions, she just vents. I normally let her just talk but she’s now judging my work and talking down to me. I’m above her and don’t feel the need to justify my POV because her opinion doesn’t matter to me. I may be giving her too much space to release frustrations. 🤷🏻‍♀️
