Very fun job, lots of ownership, pay is generally on the lower side and caliber of talent varies wildly across companies.

Do you happen to know what general pay progression looks like and what brand managers can exit to? Heard it’s a good career path in cpg but curious about other options if one doesn’t like it

How much better are the exits ops from MBB vs T2. Don’t think I want to do consulting forever. But close to getting offer to lateral. Do I take it and exit in 1-2 years or just exit from T2? Thanks 🐠

I have a question for those at Amazon or any other FAANG organization. How does your company view transfers/relocations. For instance, you were brought in for a Sr. Mgr role in SF but want to go to DC. Is there an internal transfer portal or do you need to apply for the job? How is this viewed in the company? Thanks!

*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??

Received an offer to lateral to a Big Law firm in my current state. Kind of my dream job. Recently decided with my spouse that we’ve had more than enough of our current state and we want to move out of state next year. There’s no local office for this firm where we’re going, and no idea if remote would be an option. Conflicted on whether it’s fair to take the position, although I really want it. Thoughts?

I’m interviewing for a role that is open to both remote and in-office (when it’s safe) work. Should I give salary expectations based on cost of living in the city where the office is located or based on where I’d live working remotely? Cost of living in the office location is a lot higher than where I’d live but since they are also considering in-person candidates, I know the budget is there.

Or should spend first week prepping my nails/cuticles and then get them done right before the event? I am not good at doing my own nails.
