What are good interview questions for partners? I have two I like to ask people at my equivalent level, then anything relevant that came up. But I don’t think my questions wouldn’t work well with a partner.

Assuming you’re a manager (based on title), I always like to ask them what’s one thing they wish they could pass of their plate - allows them to envision how you could support them, and leads to a conversation where you have supported partners in the past. I also like to ask about their mentoring / coaching style - it’s important for me to feel like I have a boss that I can connect with, but also learn from, even if it’s harsh feedback. If the partner isn’t really involved in the day-to-day, it’s harder to provide that tactical feedback. Lastly, you can ask what you think should be worked on to get to the next level. Timelines from manager to SM to D/Partner are always the longest, and they can tell you what their 9-box looks like.

Had my first recruiter call today. When they asked me about my comp expectations, I asked them to tell me their range first and they said that they couldn’t disclose it as it was confidential. However, if I told them my range, they could tell me if they could match it or not. Is this standard practice? I didn’t want to disclose my range first but they didn’t leave me with a choice. How do you navigate such a situation?
