I’m a new AE at a start up that was founded in 2018. I just started last week. Our ICP is retail and e-commerce brands. (Those who typically have an OMS and ship products to their customers)
The product is essentially an AI chatbot that can handle many customer requests- without the need of a live agent. (Think 20% of tickets will be automatically resolved- saving a company tons of time and money)
Opinions on where y’all think retail / e-commerce brands will be in the next 1-2 years?
What does one do when management asks me to do something, I do it, they say good job then turn around, re-do what I did, and take credit for it in front of the SM? Happens once a month at least.
They tell you that it's hard to take a pay cut, and you're like "yeah whatever, it's so much money either way" but it is really, really true -- it's a huge mental hurdle
How does one gain clarity about what to do with their career? I’m a tax manager, love client relations, business development, training/managing staff, recruiting, etc., but feel like the amount of technical work I have to do yet makes it hard to be successful in the areas I enjoy. I’m also finding that busy season doesn’t necessarily mesh with my ‘wants’ in life anymore as I’m a big skier, like going on spring break, etc. Any advice?
T shirt or button down?
Can I reject project in client interview in CGI if I am not okay with roles and responsibilities said by client or it will lead to escalation?
Which career pathway to take, if I reside in BC (Canada)
1) Clinical Psychologist
2) RCIC (Immigration Consultant/ Lawyer)
I’m open to pros and cons or any insights if you work in either of those industries?
Thank you in advance ☺️

Question for the legal recruiters out there- is a signing bonus a reasonable request for a lateral move? HCOL but not major (i.e. not NYC). I would appreciate insight into how this request may be received.

What’s the best way of encouraging young team members to actually disconnect during their time away? I have some individuals that will not take actual vacations, they say, “I’ll have my laptop and phone”. My response is “please leave your laptop at home and turn off teams and outlook phone notifications. If there is an emergency and we have a question only you can answer, we can call or text. we’ve got this.”
And then they teams checking in 2 days later 🤦🏼♀️

Hi all, I’m just 3-4 years into my career and I aim to become a CEO of a mid-sized company. In order to navigate there sooner I am looking for advice on what sort of roles or opportunities to pursue, any distance learning MBA options that someone might recommend and any back door entry/secret sauce that you wish you had known earlier. Sincerely looking forward to your guidance🙏🏻
I’m planning to negotiate a bonus structure. Does anyone have any tips or models of bonus / commission structure?
I am a Senior Project Manager for a custom estate builder. We build homes over $50mm in construction costs for the ultra wealthy. I have been with this firm for 15 years and make $350K annual. There is only one partner and the sole proprietor who is essentially retired. They split ~$5MM in profits per year. I have reached the limit on title / career progression in my company - nowhere upwards to go. I highly doubt they will ever partner anyone else into the business. Do I leave?
Working my way up the corporate ladder. I have so many thoughts on leadership and want to initiate changes in the departments I work with. But at this level it's so difficult. Ppl are so resistant to change.
My key learning thus far in my career: Noone gives a shit about your ideas unless you're a head honcho. Real change is brought about from a position of authority.
How do you let go of the need to be liked by subordinates? I have a people pleasing streak.
We’re in the process of redesigning our leadership and executive compensation structure. Both the CEO and CFO have their thoughts based on the seat. I'm exploring bottom-line and outcome-based bonus structures currently. Any feedback, views, questions, or advice?
(if it matters, we are a $600M per year company in the construction industry).
What things have direct reports done that have impressed you? I have one - one of my managers just sent me an extremely perfect mid year review with actions milestone outcomes - bottle necks. So simple and clear to measure success for end of Q4. Thank you 🙏 hiring god who found this employee.
I’m currently considering an offer and am finding that all online compensation benchmarking is falling flat in terms of understanding how I should be looking at comp for this role. I’d value your advice on how to access cleaner comp data and/or how you might look at comp for this role: Chief People Officer for a $2.5BIL revenue ($150MIL net income) global organization. 50,000 employees. USA based. Looking for Total Comp and cash targets/benchmarks.

Does anyone have experience sitting on boards? I’m interested in doing this at some point in my career, but am not sure how to get started and what’s typically required (both qualifications and work involved)
Does anyone have recommendations on an approach to get frequent feedback on employee sentiment across your teams?
I lead a global team of ~70 and growing. Most of the team is deployed to major company initiatives and pressure is high. We do big annual employee surveys, but I'm looking for good ways to get more regular feedback at scale.
Prepping for a CRO interview with the CEO of a smaller tech company (approx 70 employees) experiencing explosive growth. They want someone to run sales, alliances, & marketing, with heavy influence around product development so not really a traditional CRO role. Working on prep and curious if anyone has any ideas around questions I should be prepared to answer? Questions I should ask? Seems like an interesting role that should be a good fit with my background. Other thoughts?
I took the role I am in about a year ago and it just has not been what was promised and a huge step back. I have found a good place and am content but not overly happy with my place in the company. A smaller competitor reached out for a vp position that is a huge step up responsibility wise. There would be a pay raise but not huge so money is not the motivator here. Is this crazy to seriously consider? I hate to burn bridges. I have been told I am on the partner fast track. Thoughts? Advice?
Got an opportunity for a Director role that will oversee a new and major changes across the org but won't have people under me. Should I be worried?
