At my last company we moved away from anything director and above to below c-suite. So “Director”, “Sr Director”, “AVP”, “VP” all became “Head” of the function or sub function (we kept the pay bands corresponding to each in the background for Compensation purposes), but did away with the specific titles in that range as we felt people started paying too close attention to titles / semantics, and oftentimes if we were to give a function/sub function oversight responsibility to a “Director” level, someone at a Sr Director or VP may feel some type of way about it.

‘Head of…’ titles are often nebulous and difficult to scale, so we are doing the exact opposite and moving away from that title convention. Also difficult to create a hierarchy around job titles. The employees at our company are grateful for this, actually, as they often don’t understand their leveling (or the company & the employee have different perspectives on their leveling) with these types of titles. In certain scenarios, we have kept the title but added the level (e.g. Director, Head of… etc). I might be old fashioned, but I prefer to stick to the level delineation in job titles!

Considering an “attorney development” role at a big firm. Currently midlevel at a big firm. I would be helping with career planning, reviews and staffing. The attorney development role is low six figures (less than market 1st year salary) and 9-6. I don't hate practicing law, just looking for better hours and long term viability. appreciate hearing from anyone who knows folks in similar roles.
